About Da Paolo

It offers the atmosphere of a traditional Italian village in the centre of London, with a menu replete with classics from up and down the bel paese, as well as regional specialities and house signatures. Book a table and head out to Fitzrovia – take the tube to Goodge Street and wander around the corner to Charlotte Place – for one of the best, most-loved Italian restaurants to be found anywhere in London.

Further Information

As we said, Da Paolo Restaurant is reminiscent of a traditional Italian village right in the centre of London, thus from the decor you can expect a certain amount of ambience and tranquility, classic white tablecloths and a wonderfully warm welcome. Da Paolo Restaurant is perfect for groups of friends or family and also offers luxurious private dining opportunities. Over the years the menu has adapted and grown but always stayed true to its Italian roots, and now diners of Fitzrovia and beyond are able to enjoy tastes from the backstreets of Bologna to the middle of Modena.

Everything at Da Paolo is good but we’d certainly recommend the set menu – perfect for a pre-theatre meal – with a starter of grilled Italian sausage with salad and pecorino cheese, a main of pesecapada di Salmoriglio, swordfish grilled with lemon, fresh oregano and chives and a tiramisu to top it all off. Alternatively, the main menu is brimming with fresh and exciting pasta options, fish, meat and salads. You really can’t go wrong with the pappardelle all'Anatra with duck, sage, mixed mushrooms and a white wine sauce. On Charlotte Place, Da Paolo Restaurant really is one of the finest Italian restaurants we know of in Fitzrovia.

I have been to Da Paolo several times and the food and service are always first class. It was recommended to me by my old boss and I would recommend to anyone wanting some great authentic Italian cuisine.

Everything is right: small but cosy rather than cramped, lovely staff and the best food outside of Italy - better than much inside too, come to think of it. Very reasonably priced plus a selection of wine by the half bottle

Truly divine! We had a lovely meal, nice wine, great service. I have eaten here previously and brought some colleagues with me to let them try and they loved it.

Da Paolo is OK at best. The tables are very close together, but that's OK if you want a jolly atmosphere and you don't need to have a serious conversation. There was certainly a jolly atmosphere. But this thing about "generous portions" is crazy. I had a starter that would have fed 4 people and the main course was enough for 2. I left at least half of both dishes and it was such a waste. My starter was mountains of charcuterie perched on a mound of salad - which incidentally was rather wet. I ploughed my way through half of it before thinking "this is ridiculous" and giving up. I don't enjoy eating like that. When taking my order, I was asked - very properly - how I'd like my tuna to be cooked. I said rare. A double helping arrived, with two large pieces of tuna fighting their way through a deluge of cherry tomatoes. Neither piece of tuna was rare. I was too depressed to complain. Having gone to the bother of asking, then ruining two pieces of fish, I was reluctant to suggest the chef had a go at another two. Serve half the amount of food; charge the same amount of money. Then they could afford to improve the cooking.

This is a lovely restaurant: polite staff and very good service. It was a busy evening. We arrived earlier than our planned booking time and were a smaller group than expected, yet the manager calmly showed us to a table. Our meals were excellent even if we were conventional in our choices: a lasagne; a tagliatelle ragu; a risotto. The bottle of Italian Merlot was perfect. We have returned to this restaurant at different times of the year and the food is always satisfying. May I make a plea for the Sicilian lemon cheesecake: it is not truly lemony. A lemon sauce would lift it. The strawberry sauce spoiled it. We enjoyed the atmosphere and décor. I would recommend this restaurant and happily revisit Da Paolo Restaurant with family and friends because it makes any meal into a special occasion.

Da Paolo is a genuine Italian restaurant. The recipes are not the usual ones, but more on the regional specialties, make sure to enquire about the special dishes of the day that are always an amazing treat. It tends to be a little expensive (dishes on the range of 18/20£) but this is the price for genuine Italian quality and let's remember that they serve pretty big portions, for example a single main dish is usually enough to fill me up. As dessert the Tiramisu' is deliciously home made. The real deal.

Friendly efficient service.Food and wine, perfectly adequate, but sound rather than exciting. At £40 per head for two courses and a bottle of house red (one of the main courses being a straight pasta dish) ,prices bordering on the high end of mid price.The restaurant space is small, the decor cosy in a traditional Italian style, the seating is very cramped however and once the restaurant became crowded a degree of manoeuvering was required whenever customers needed to leave their table space,by those seated at adjoining tables.There is the potential to dine al fresco during the warmer months and this may ease the pressure on indoor space.Overall Da Paolo offers a pleasant dining experience.

Da Paolo is intimate and atmospheric. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, but not intrusive (a real trick in such cosy surroundings). Our party of 8 had a snug fit but we were never cramped. The food was really good - no one regretted their choice and the portions were generous. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a gem of a restaurant hidden away in the backwaters of Fitzrovia, or if you are less trendy like myself just adjacent to Charlotte Street. It is like a bistro that could be anywhere in Italy, great traditional food, well priced and enormous portions, and there is Carlos the owner keeping a beady eye on the happenings. There is even a good Youngs pub just across the road, The One Tun. Most enjoyable.
