We were a group of eight for
We were a group of eight for Easter brunch traveling from Avila Beach to Fair Oaks, CA that morning. None of our group had ever been to Paso Robles, so it seemed like a good idea to stop there and try Panolivo's (decision based on their website photos and menu info). I made the reservation through Open Table, but we actually arrived an hour early. Our table was ready and waiting, so they seated us right away in the back of a large back room where it was quiet and we could easily converse. The food was very much enjoyed by all and our servers were on top of everything from start to finish. It was a very positive experience all around.

Lovely fine dining spot
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Panolivo on April 6th. We were greeted immediately as we entered, and the service throughout the meal was perfect! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Our meals were full of flavor and perfectly prepared. And enjoy the spectacular desserts!

Had a very nice dinner last
Had a very nice dinner last night. The dining room is clean and inviting. The beef cannelloni was very good. Wife had the ravioli florentine and was very pleased. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone that want a nice cleanly elegant dinner with good prices in downtown Paso.

Great Local Dining Option
My parents have lived in Paso Robles for over 25 years and I have been visiting them from the Bay Area since they moved in the late '80's. I have watched the food scene evolve, along with the community, from small rural town greasy spoon food to more sophisticated food fare. Panolivo was a great addition to the food scene and continues to have an important place in the dining options here in Paso. They have recently remodeled the interior seating and I would say it is superior to the previous layout. The food menu has not changed much and continues to be pleasing. The coffee and quiche are always standouts for me. In the areas of improvement, the service has always been lacking but not bad enough yet to keep me from coming back.

Gem in Paso Robles
I took my mother to lunch for Mother's Day in Paso Robles. I booked the restaurant online from San Diego not knowing anything about the restaurant. Some locals told me how good the restaurant was after I booked it. It turned out to be true. All the food we ate was fresh and quality. My 97 year old mother liked it and she is hard to please. It is a culinary gem in Paso Robles.

Great bistro style cafe
Have been to this restaurant for breakfast previously. Enjoyed great coffee and nice breakfast menu. Tried it for dinner this time. Menu was good. Recommend pasta dishes. Still prefer this restaurant for breakfast. Menu has changed a bit, better a few years ago but breakfast still pretty good.

A Great Spot in Paso Robles
We enjoyed a Saturday morning breakfast/brunch at Panalivo's. The restaurant is light and open and
joined with Jaffa's Cafe which features a Mediterranean menu (but which was not open for breakfast).
Panalivo's featured good rich coffee that the waitress refilled regularly. We enjoyed the French toast (brioche)
with Canadian bacon and a Spanish omellete or tort with chorizo, jalapenos, and cheese.
The food was freshly prepared and the service was friendly.

Our favorite palce
Every summer the ladies from our church get together and have lunch: June, July and August. We used to travel a ways and two years ago decided to try Panolivo. We now return every summer. The restaurant is accomodating and the servers are very friendly. Of course we go with our families in between. The food is delicious. Quiches are the best.

Nice brunch spot
Our family of 7 was pleased with the food, the service, and the local feel of this comfortable restaurant. Their bakery case was also full of yummy treats!

Great Food and Service
We are local and frequent Panolivo frequently for breakfast and sometimes lunch. Just had never done them for dinner before. We found both the service and the food very good as usual and would recommend them highly!

Always a favorite!!
We discovered Panolivo several years ago while visiting Paso Robles, and it has become our favorite breakfast spot. The food is always excellent and the service is great.

Quick and delicious dining...
We were on our way to a concert at Vina Robles Amphitheater and due to time constraints, we were happy to find a nice place for a light meal that also was OPEN EARLY for dinner. Panolivo is a charming cafe located a short walk from the City Park. All 3 diners were happy with their selections: panini with turkey, Brie and spinach; crab cake salad; and shrimp pasta. All delicious. We shared a bottle of our own wine, paying the corkage fee of $15 (wish it had been no more than $10...), had a short, but sweet experience. On our way to the concert within about one hour 15 min. later.
The next time we come, we'd like to save time for dessert :)

Great Combo - Food & Service
Four of us enjoyed dinner at one of the outside tables. The wine list is moderate but priced well and includes some imports in addition to local Paso wines. While I have Celiac and need to eat gluten free, my dining partners ate at will. They really enjoyed the food have a variety. The gluten free choices are the best I have experienced in years. After appetizers I had a burger on a gluten free bun that was not crumbling like most GF bread and it was incredibly tasty. To top all of that the service was spot on. This will certainly be a regular stop on our journeys to the Paso Robles area.

Not too much fuss
We were looking for a restaurant with good food but quick enough service to accommodate the attention span of a 2 year old. This fit the bill, good basic food and quick enough for the entire family to have a good experience.

Out of this world Breakfast
This place uses fresh local ingredients. You cannot taste it but really see it! Nice personal service. Lots of locals eat there. It is a bit pricy but worth while.

Pan Olivo is a great place for breakfast in Paso. They have a full menu of eggs , quiche, and other goodies. You can also get a side of fruit rather then potatos if you choose which is a nice change. If you want a lighter meal they do have a bakery where you can get a multitude of baked goods. If you are in Paso try it!

Nice Place To Dine
Dependably the same - good food, nice (quiet) atmosphere, slow pace, excellent service. Not a place to eat if you are in a hurry!

Not typical experience.
One of our favorite restaurants but the turkey meal was VERY disappointing. Salad and dessert was excellent but the turkey tasted like a processed turkey roll. The dark portion definitely had the texture of ground meat. Definitely not heat I have come to expect here.
