We had a lovely meal and experience. The food was delicious and wine has some great choices. Service was great and the maitre de helped with suggestions and offered some great solutions to choosing between dishes. Well worth a cheap Uber trek over to Westlake from the Old Quarter. Right on the lake in a quiet spot with fabulous views... More

This evening, a friend and I planned to eat at Da Paolo. Just around the corner from Da Paolo my bike broke down. The restaurant staff helped me move the bike, then later the team leader gave me a lift on her bike to find a bike shop still open at 9pm. It was a complicated fix and took a... More

We were looking for a comfortable, friendly Italian restaurant with good food -- and we found it. There seems to be quite a few Italians who come to this restaurant, so that's probably a good indicator the food is good. We sat upstairs where there's a nice atmosphere. We ordered some fresh Buffalo Mozzarella with tomatoes and basil (Insalata Caprese)... More

We've enjoyed a succession of great Vietnamese meals but just needed a good Italian dinner to finish our week in Vietnam. Da Paolo was a short cab ride form our hotel in Westlake and rated well so we headed over and were not disappointed. The menu is extensive - most style od Italian food and with great selection of each.... More

For me the pizza here is one of the top 3 in town & their pasta is top ! Classic but very good food! Only one thing they need to work out that is their service

The location is great and the atmosphere is very nice, but service and foods were below average. I have little to say about dishes and drinks we had. We ordered soup, salad, margarita pizza and bongole to compare with other restaurants. Not all but some servers attitude was ruined the lunch. They were arrogant, ignoring our requests, no spirit of... More

Its a bit expensive for what you get. The long haired Italian Manager spoke down to the staff which is absolutely tasteless just like the base of the pizze. If we were in a Western country and he spoke to me the way he did as we left I would have broken his jaw. The Spaghetti was undercooked as well

Very delicious, and my favorite dish was Lasagna ...... It's near the lake and has a really nice atmosphere...

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.
