Came here to have a light dinner, near closing time. Staff were were accommodating and I enjoyed the pasta. Just wished I could come again and enjoy this place longer.

Came for dinner wanting a simple pizza - ended up having a great meal and the coffee was exceptional. Service was outstanding. Can hardly walk on the way out the food was that good. Try the buffalo mozzarella with tomato for entree.

Good food and a good rating for a restaurant comes with consistency. Unfortunately, on several occasions this restaurant has failed to deliver (quite literally). A bit like the “I’m feeling lucky” button on Google, you never quite know what you are going to get. Having to chase a restaurant is never good but in this case… it’s the last time!... More

We had dinner two nights there during our honeymoon and we enjoyed the Italian kitchen! Fresh and good products, typically Italian .. from appetizers to desserts, even the pizza! The very courteous and friendly staff, attentive to every detail and need, ready to serve. Maybe.. we'll wee again, with very pleasure!

As a lot of other reviews have already mentioned: The service here is poor. It's not the worst, but it's always something. Either slow, or unfriendly, or forgetting orders. Nevertheless, the kitchen staff keeps this restaurant full, because it's definitely the best Italian food in Hanoi. So in the end you keep coming back. They also provide delivery. For this... More

Tell you the honest truth, if your an Italian food fan, you might be so used to eating it all the time that when you come to Da Paolo, you will feel let down by some dishes...specifically most of the pasta dishes are just not on par. however the Calzone is good. I find this place suited to upscale corrupt... More

Wonderful little restaurant with beautiful views over the lake. This is the most authentic Italian I have visited in many years of international travel. Real taste of Italy. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Came here with two work colleagues for some wine and food, both of which were very good. A good choice of wines and some well presented and tasty food: a good range of Italian classics on both fronts. A good atmosphere in a popular restaurant and good location overlying the lake. For me the host made the difference, being both... More

An authentic Italian restaurant on a beautiful location on banks of West Lake. The restaurant has been established since 2010. It is extremely popular with local residents, business people and families. Ideal place for tasting authentic Italian fare such as pizzas, pastas, risotto, and lot more. We believe in traditions. All food is cooked in traditional Italian style. Even the oven we use for baking pizzas, is traditional Italian oven, fired by wood, to give it the unique natural taste that is difficult to find in other modern pizzeria. Our customers, many of whom have been with us since the start, have been our best critics, and have always told us about what they really think about the changes we make. This is because they feel it is their place as well as ours.
