On Sunday it was noisier than usual because of a little two year old running around and yelling. It was being encouraged by the grandma.

We hadn't been to DiPaolo's in quite some time and now we wonder why. We tried the appetizer special - Polenta with a fried egg and pancetta. Very creamy and delicious.
Next the pasta Carbonara and the goat cheese stuffed ravioli. Both were excellent.
service was good after our server warmed up a bit. She seemed to be very busy, which is good.

a very nice place for our return to dining out after the year of lockdowns, and to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Even though vaccinated, we are still using precautions and were impressed by di Paolo's protocols. Our waiter was outstanding, appropriately there whenever you needed him without appearing to hover, knowledgeable about the various dishes. High recommend di Paolo's!

Hearts of palm salad was excellent. My braised rabbit pasta was excellent. Husband's clam pasta was very salty--perhaps the clams weren't rinsed enough. Waiter friendly and helpful. We poured our own wine and didn't get a refill on water although waiter seemed to be quite busy so perhaps restaurant was understaffed.

The food was excellent as always. The bar was a little slow in getting drinks out but honestly they were so good and well balanced that I forgive them!! The ambiance is always wonderful. The hostess was delightful as was the waiter. We’ll be back!!

DI PAOLO has been one of our local favorite places to dine for over ten years. Consistent ly uptown and they have always honored reservations and that's good enough for us.

Friendly and welcoming place.
Never been disappointed! Yummy bread and breadsticks are served as soon as you are seated with a puddle of excellent EVOI. The four cheese pizza , we order : “Add mushrooms, please!” It is the most flavorful of any pizza in town! Salads are generous. Save room for dessert!
Try the Skyfall Red Blend.

Went for my wife birthday and it was 5 stars across the board. Had apps, pasta, veal chop, dessert, wine, everything was perfect including social distancing. Prices are very reasonable. Was so good I booked another reservation the same day for my birthday. I can't wait to go back.

Overall a good experience. My issue is as follows: I ordered the mkt fish , Halibut. I had to send it back because it was over cooked. The replacement was good, but not great. For a $39.00 piece of Halibut , I expected more, in the way of flavor . Salt & pepper, pan fried served on top of mashed potatoes or spinach, in my case, was not worthy. The chef needs to be more imaginative for that price!

Double date. We are having an Italian food “eat off”. Visiting 4 restaurants and seeing which is our favorite. Two they are bringing us to, two we are recommending.

You are my husband’s favorite Italian restaurant here and you are my closest favorite Italian restaurant.

Love sitting at the chef’s table. Your team is hard working and provide excellent customer service which compliments the home made pasta and (my favorite) olives + breadsticks!

This is our favorite restaurant for not only the special occasions but also for no reason other than to always get an outstanding meal and served by an excellent wait person.
We especially like having an early Sunday dinner. And Di Paolo does the social distancing of the tables and the wait staff all have masks and gloves - it is a comforting to have that done.

I was so lucky to get a reservation on Valentine’s Day ! They were running a little bit late, but we didn’t have to wait long! The food was amazing! And I felt safe because the tables were set up every other table! It was only me and my husband, but we did see small groups as well! A great family place!

My husband and I want to Di Paola for Valentine’s dinner. It was very nice. I believe I said there was noise, but it was very low from people talking quietly at their tables.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people, and we plan to dine there again.

We were celebrating our 50 th wedding anniversary. They did give me the cozy table I had requested. The food was fabulous as always. Service was a bit slow and nothing was mentioned at all about our special occasion. We felt like we were not checked on enough during the meal and waited a long while for our check. We will definitely return since you are one of our favorites in the area.
