Service was quite good but the restaurant was cold and lacked atmosphere. Our starter of a sharing platter for 2 was unexciting and not much there for the price. Main courses were ok but again quite expensive. Coffee was warm rather than hot and the peppermint tea turned out to be green tea.

Had a very enjoyable lunch with friends. The food and service was excellent. Particularly enjoyed the bread and butter pudding dessert, it was superb. Would recommend it. My wife wanted an omelet, although breakfast service had finished. No problem.

We had a lovely lunch at Paulino, Lindfield. The welcome was warm and the overall ambience of the Restaurant clean and tidy ( tho the temperature in the conservatory a tad chilly on the day ). A very comprehensive menu with a varied wine list. This was a first visit for us but our friends are regulars. It was a... More

Went here in May this year. Table booked for 18:45, drink order taken quickly and delivered. Waiter was nice, quite funny actually. Food order was placed by 19:15, however, there were problems in the kitchen and by the time our mains came it was 21:30. The food was good enough but probably not worth the wait, which was excruciatingly long... More

What can I say? I love love love this restaurant. The food is wonderful, with a rich and varied menu with an authentic Italian home-cooked feel. You're always made to feel welcome by the waiting staff and the owners. I thoroughly recommend this for both intimate dining, family meals, and for larger parties. I can't fault it.

We kept driving past this place and it took our fancy. We booked in for a birthday meal and it didn't disappoint. Our waiter had a fantastic sense of humour but was very good at his job at the same time. Made the whole experience of Italian food more realistic. The food itself was great. Well flavoured, portions just about... More
