Proudly celebrating our 50th year anniversary, Di Paolos is an upscale Contemporary/Modern Italian restaurant specializing in cuisine from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Although our signature Orange Size All Jumbo Lump Crabcakes remain our staple, our menu also features several fresh fish and seafood dishes that is delivered daily to our restaurant. We use only Certified Angus Beef, Milk-Fed Veal, Domestic Colorado Lamb Chops, Center-Cut Veal Chops & Double-Bone Center-Cut Pork Chops. While using only the finest and freshest organic tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and cheeses from Italy, we make all of our pastas, large ravioli, and hand-cut gnocchi fresh daily. We have a large gorgeous bar room that features Bob Pantano of Philadelphia's 98.1 WOGL every Wednesday night along with top notch bands every Friday & Saturday nights. During spring and summer, we have a huge gorgeous patio with fire pits, and a full bar with nightly entertainment and dinner specials.

Not by our waitress fault but two entrees where served 25mins after everyone’s else at that table had gotten theirs. For the price of the food there all entrees should come out together so others are not watching others eat. Also the quality of the food was very disappointing. We have been there serval times before but probably will not return.

Food was excellent! Live band was a bonus, we had no idea so this made date night all inclusive- good food, great drinks, live music, dancing and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Menu had selections to suit every budget and the portions were generous. This is definitely on my list to revisit.

Our dinner was delicious and portions were generous. Good value as appetizers and salads were included. Service was excellent, but it was rather noisy in the dining room, it was the holiday season, so maybe some extra excitement going on, but all in all a great experience!!

The food at this restaurant is always amazing. Many choices. I absolutely love their buffets. I go here frequently but this is the first time I've made a reservation with open table and it worked out perfectly. This is one of my favorite go-to places. In warmer weather there is wonderful outdoor seating and I go there to enjoy the various entertainment and bands that come to play there. Every meal I've ever had there has been delicious. The desserts were wonderful. That lemon cello dessert is to die for.

Dipaolo's is an excellent restaurant. My wife and I have only been there a few times, but we really enjoy it. The food has always been perfect, and the service is always excellent. A great place for special occasions or a first date with that special someone.

We had dinner here & celebrated our daughters birthday this past Saturday. They give you so much food. Service was great & we enjoyed everything but the really loud dj music playing. It was hard to hear each other. We felt like we were at a wedding.

I've eaten here plenty of times, it is always very good. The restaurant is beautiful, very nice decor. Service is always friendly and top notch. Food is always fantastic. This night, we had the prime rib and shrimp buffet. The prime rib was an excellent piece of meat, but wasn't seasoned very well. I had the fried shrimp and some other seasoned shrimp which were bother really good. The gnoci vodka was delicious. The ravioli was very good. I LOVED the chicken marsala. My wife also had the egg plant rotatini? She said it was really good.

They have a full service bar. My top shelf Long Island was awesome. Plenty of other delicious cocktails and a good selection of wine.

We had a variety of deserts and they were all fantastic.

This place is an ABSOLUTE gem. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Food was excellent but the prices were outrageous from the menu. Thankfully we were able to pick from the holiday buffet, which was excellent and priced reasonably. We are retired and brought other retired friends with us and they felt the same way. We have always loved coming to your restaurant in the past. We come from Delaware usually to meet family and friends from NJ and Pa to enjoy your menu and have never felt your prices were out of line, but this time we were disappointed in the prices off menu. I do hope you continue to keep the buffet and not just during holiday as the prices for the buffet were fair. I do hope you will revisit your menu and make adjustments on the menu that are “senior friendly”.
Sincerely,
Linda Middleton

Our party of 7 enjoyed the Prime Rib & Shrimp buffet. The meal was good. We had 1 child in our group and it would have been nice if they offered a discount price for her but she was charged the same $39.95 as the rest of the adults.

We have been to DiPaolo's many times....it is our go to restaurant now. Friends of ours have never been there so we met them at the restaurant. They live approximately 40 minutes away. They thoroughly enjoyed the food there and they told us that it was definitely worth the long ride and planned on coming back in the very near future.
