Nice Easter Brunch
We had been to Paolo's before in years past, but hadn't been in a while. So I made reservations, and the Easter Brunch is one of the best buffet brunches around. Plenty of tasty food, you could have breakfast foods, lighter and heartier lunch foods, and a giant table full of desserts. Food was tasty and fresh, and the atmosphere was great for celebrating Easter.

Went for Easter brunch buffet.
Went for Easter brunch buffet. Booked late and was glad to get reservation. It was packed with large family groups and restaurant was larger than outside appearance. Food was plentiful and very good. Waiter was very attentive with drinks and clearing plates. Carving stations of beef and ham. Beef was perfectly done and fresh ham was moist -honey and not salty. Salads were done, paolo-style - large fresh mozzarella slices, tomato, fresh basil, Caesar salad with large shavings of Parmesan cheese. Great dessert tables including dark chocolate dipping table. definitely recommend for quality of food and price. Especially liked chocolate Lindt bunnies, jelly beans and Easter candies spread throughout.

We ate outside which I always love to do. All three of us had the mediterranean chicken salad which we all loved, as well as the bread sticks and tappanade. Great waiter.

Paolo's Reston hits a homerun
We had Saturday brunch outside by the Fountain under the shade of trees on a beautiful day- perfect ambience. You can have the all-you-can-eat brunch for $25, but we went a la carte: carmelized brussel sprouts, salmon omelet, and eggplant pannini, all absolutely delectable. Awesome food, unforgettable setting.

Great place for summer evening
I have eaten at Paolo's many times over the years. Food has been consistently outstanding - the Rockfish special night we visited was amazing.
This most recent dinner visit was with a girlfriend and we wanted to sit on the patio to enjoy the beautiful summer evening and the music. Outdoor seating is best suited to enjoy the music since the volume was high which made conversations difficult. Despite that challenge, we're planning a girls night out with all of our lady friends and Paolo's will be our destination.

We went during lunch so there were only a few people, it was my friend and I and the waiters were super nice and responsive. Definitely go back!!

Great service and food
We were able to sit outside in August in Reston, so that was a bonus. Decent seating area under the trees. Chairs could use some padding, but the food more than made up for it. The Chef selections were excellent, service was prompt, and there was a good wine selection. No complaints and I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Perfect place to enjoy outdoor meal
After a hectic work week, this is the perfect place to meet friends for dinner and lively conversation. Noise level was very manageable, food was delicious and service was attentive without being disruptive. Out door seating should be enjoyed whenever the weather allows.

We've eaten at Paolo's many times and never been disappointed. My husband had a salmon dish and I had Shrimp Scampi both of which were very good. We each had a glass of wine and enjoyed them.
The wait staff were all in Halloween costumes which added to the fun and happy atmosphere.

What I wish hadn't happened was me forgetting to take my "doggie bag" home with the rest of my Scallops Risotto and the other half of my birthday dessert (tiramisu, my favorite!!). How could I have done such a thing? Maybe it was the 2 glasses of wine that mellowed me or the fact that I was pleasantly full from a scrumptious dinner or maybe it was my enthusiasm to get outside and walk around the area. Who knows?? Guess I will now make a point to return for an encore, and this time remember my eats!! Thanks for a lovely birthday celebration!
