I have gone back to Da Paolo a second time as I was yearning for some gnocchi.
Without a shadow of a doubt it is the finest in all of Hanoi - and I have been hunting far and wide.
The gnocchi is as real as you will get. It is fashioned in the same way your Nonna might of made in Italy.
Whether you are Italian or not, I will say one thing - if it’s hand made gnocchi you are chasing, then this is the place you need to get to. I hooked onto the gnocchi with ragout lightly dusted with some parmesan - yummo.
Positioned right on Westlake, this roomy, two story restaurant is just the place to park for the night.
For sure it can cater for an intimate affair or large groups. I did not book on the night we went, and just rocked up. Service is good, no doubt about it.
The wine list is a little challenging though, albeit a little confusing it does take a bit of navigating to find what you are looking for. It is a bit like a dogs breakfast - all over the place.
Don’t let that deter you.
The menu caters for everyone and no stone is left unturned in terms of menu options.
I look forward to going again.
