I have always loved Paolo's place but I've been gone for awhile and something is just not right. I'm really sorry to say it because I've recommended it to everyone I know and or anyone who would even slightly listen. Paolo is a sweetheart. He still is. Unfortunately the food just isn't quite as tasty as it used to be.... More

A piece of Italy across from the beach. This place is the real deal. Paolo visits with his dinners in this intimate restaurant and serves Italian food to die for.

We stopped in with our two daughters 8 & 10 for an early dinner in San Carlos and we were pleasantly surprised with the bread, bruschetta, Pizza and Pasta. The servers were kind and attentive and I think the owner was the person who took our order. Stop in the next time you are in San Carlos.

There are very few restaurants in San Carlos that I would consider nice. Because of the demographic, most of them are very casual with mediocre food. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not your place. With that being said, I agree with other reviewers in saying that this is the best Italian restaurant in San Carlos. Keep in... More

Paulo the owner is a wonderful host and adds to the good atmosphere and dinning experience with his charm and attention. The dishes are very fresh and the pastas are home made. My favorites include, lasagna, arrabiatta, shrimp sauce lasagna and his crisp muy... More
