This restaurant is such a gem. I live close and have been over 25 times in the past several years. The menu stays fresh and there are always specials. Service is smart and knows their menu. You won't be disappointed.

Always great. Neighborhood restaurant that competes very favorably with larger, more expensive restaurants. A favorite of ours.

We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday, we hadn’t been before but it was highly recommended. We weren’t disappointed, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will go back for another special occasion.

Always a good experience at Di Paolo... especially on Sunday evenings. Unfortunately when we were seated at 7:30 they were already out of one of the entrees we wanted to order, and THE bottle of wine we wanted. Instead we had a fabulous tuna entree special, and two super Tuscan bottles of wine which helped us forget about what had been sold out.

From start to finish it was a great experience. Attentive wait staff (but not overly attentive), drinks were well made and tasty (though a bit pricey), the food was done perfectly with good portions for both fill and half sizes. Even though it is in a strip mall qualitatively it is on par with restaurants in pricier settings.

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!!

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.
