As always, Paolos is delicious!! Very friendly staff, a neighborhood gem!
We had a good time & did not feel rushed. The salad person said just okay. The rest of us loved our food.
We always get Paolo’s brunch for Mother’s Day, and this time we came a little earlier, which was a good idea. There were fewer people, so it was quieter. The food was excellent as it always is, with a rich variety. Paolo’s has been and still is our favorite restaurant.
Fantastic little Italian restaurant tucked into an unlikely (but accessible) location. The menu is solid authentic Italian and the staff and chef are very flexible - will adapt any dish to your needs (gluten free, vegetarian, etc). Mother's Day brunch was well done - I'm not usually a buffet person, but there were many options and lots of variety. Kid-friendly, too.
mothers day brunch excellent as usual with the regular brunch items and some regular favorites- lemon cheesecake
Very good as usual , friendly service, clam sauce a little burnt but still good,
We always go to Paolo’s for special events like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, and this was no exception. I had the scallops and Mary had her filet mignon. It was Wednesday, so we got a bottle of prize-winning Syrah at half price. We had to take half of it home, where we enjoyed it again. Great food!
Great Italian food made to order. Not fast food,but great food and service.
The food is always good. It is usually about a 30 minute wait for your food to arrive.
We were given a gift certificate to this restaurant by a good friend. We went on our date night and tried a few things. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. The meatball sampler was a great starter. The Gorgonzola sauce was amazing. The cioppino was fresh and hearty. All said, this was a great meal.
We have been frequenting Paulo’s for many years and it never fails to disappoint! Pasta is cooked perfectly, amazing calzones and dessert is amazing!
This is a Family restaurant which serves good solid food with excellent service. It is comfortable, you are able to talk without yelling and it is very popular with the local folks
here in the area. You can celebrate any occasion and not feel out of place because
they treat all as Family. Is it fancy , no but it is a GREAT place to have a meal, YES!!
Great place great food and value
Took a long time to get bread but other than that it was superb
We had a great meal. There happened to be a price fixed option which gave us a great overall experience of the menu. The appetizers, soup, main course, and dessert were all delicious.
Did not care for the "updated" decor, miss the charm of the previous. Food portions were *VERY* small, TOO expensive for what we got, service was just adequate (need to be more friendly). Disappointing experience this time around.
The staff is always so friendly. The food is so wonderful. I have never ate the same thing twice and so far have loved everything I have had. When you are there just enjoy the atmosphere and conversation with whom you came with, this is not a FAST food place so you wait a little while for your dinner, but well worth the wait!
Wonderful food and beverage selection! Desserts are to die for and hand made by s local woman... Definitely try this for a birthday or anniversary celebration...
We have enjoyed testy Italian food, cozy interior. The food was excellent! After the amazing meal we decided on dessert and it was simply fantastic. Great restaurant for special occasion for small group of people.
Amazing food, each time we have been here!! We will be back!!
Always great food and service.
This is our favorite neighborhood Italian Restaurant. The food is amazing.
The fragrance of Italian as the door opens sets my mood. It's not always easy to get a table, but if we go mid-week after work we're usually lucky!
Great food, great hostess, and an amazing kitchen staff!
best special occasion restaurant on kent east hill
We have been visiting Paolo's for years and it never disappoints!
The quality of the food and the excellent service makes for a winning combination.
Always try their special - I've never had a bad one.
we always enjoy Paolo's, take friends and family when ever, what ever the occasion.
Just a nice comfortable place to enjoy good meals.
warm and friendly
This is a very special place for me and my wife, if we have anything to celebrate this is where we like to go. Super food and excellent help.
I'm surprised that I'd never heard of Paolo's before. Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Nice variety on the menu to choose from. We'll be going back to try some more dishes!
Food was great, we will be back for sure .
4 of us went, all ordered different items and all were very happy.
My favorite restaurant- great food and inviting service. One of many visits!
Truly great Italian food. Great early and late dinner menu specials, four coarse meal for $21.95! And I love the lemon cheese cake.
We had a party of 6 reservation. We were seated promptly. Dinner was delicious. Service was a little slow this time but worth the wait. We try to go to this restaurant a few times a year.
Slow to reach table initially, waitresses give allot af attention but food came quick, mistake on wine price which slowed down departure. The advertized special was not as good as it sounded. Still love this place, best Italian food in local area.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Seating is limited but the food is outstanding and a good value. Worth a trip to the Kent east hill.
Wed nights with half price on Washington State Wines make it an affordable night out. Overall value all the time is still good.
We have long love Paolo's and will continue to visit often. Great food, awesome service! There are not a ton of fantastic dining options in Kent, but Paolo's is top notch. No need to drive into the city for great food, it's right here.
For birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions our restaurant choice is almost always Paolo's. Sometimes we have discount offers for birthdays, so we go get the discount one night and then also go to Paulo's. We always enjoy it so much. This time it was Valentine's Day, with a special menu, and a violin player. Paolo's was packed. We chose an earlier reservation, 5:30, to get in ahead of the crowd.
We have been to Paolo's several times and we particularly enjoy special occasions such as Valentine's Day. Paolo usually has a special menu for these occasions and never fails to create something special. The lamb chops were spectacular and the roasted veggies are always wonderful. The live music for Valentine's Day was a nice touch.
the day before valentine's day, and the dining room and tables were beautifully decorated and enjoyed the additional menu choices along with the standard menu
