There is really one reason to go to Di Paolo's, and that is ice cream. In summer they have an amazing range of award winning homemade ice cream ranging from chocolatey to fruity and everything in between. There really is no greater treat and if...More

Lovely ice cream by the beach, loved it. Would recommend the salted caramel or the cadburys creme egg one, it was delicious!

if you have never had an ice cream there, you have not lived. Excellent as always with many many flavours. Be warned they only take cash, so make sure you have some in your pocket

Cash only. By the time I walked all the way to the cash point there was no time to order, wait to be served, eat and make it in time for the car parking expiry time so we had to leave. Take away ice cream...More

Their ice cream is fabulous. True Italian ice cream that is so popular. On a warm day the queue is an expression of how good it is. Meals at Di Pablos is inexpensive and the staff are efficient.

I thought at the heart of every Italian was family, you're an Italian restaurant and you should promote this. 2 of my daughters were part of the group of mums you was so rude to on Tuesday. I'm appalled you treated them so badly. How long do you honestly think it'd take to drink a hot drink, it'd hardly have any impact on lunchtime trade, and if you assumed otherwise have you not heard of the saying don't assume as it'll take the a** out of you and me! Would you have been so rude to a group of elderly customers, I'd be very surprised. I look forward to your response. Mandy Thomson
