This romantic restaurant serves old Italian favorites as well as sophisticated new creations. – The Scene

With one of the most attractive interiors in San Jose, Paolo's has vine-like wrought iron posts and railings meandering through its oversized dining room. The room's earth tones are accented by autumnal plaids and brocade upholstery while vibrant oil paintings lend splashes of color. Moody lighting provides a cozy, romantic atmosphere.

The Food

Start with the gamberi alla livornese, a menu staple that plates up buttery fat prawns sparked with garlic, white wine and lemon. Though dishes like saltimbocca and capellini Regina (think cream and butter) remain on the menu for longtime customers, the concentration is on more sophisticated fare. Green olives and Medjool dates dot Muscovy duck breast. Penne pasta is crowned with grilled tuna, sweet slow-roasted tomato, Moroccan black olives and caramelized red onion. Go the traditional route for desert and try the creamy cheesecake or cannoli.

Paolo's Is Perfection Personified – What a beautiful restaurant. Impeccable service. Incredible food. We have been to almost all of the finest restaurants in the Valley, and our vote goes to Paolo's for the finest Italian food around -- everything was absolutely gorgeous.

best Bolognese sauce outside Italy! – As an Italian living in the South Bay, I have had a difficult time finding food which tastes like home. While Paolo's does take liberties with some traditional Italian dishes, they do it with style and tasty results. Paolo's Bolognese sauce is the real thing--so much like home it makes my eyes tear with joy!!
