A charming neighbourhood favourite since 1990, Da Paolo brings flavoursome Italian dishes in a traditional and cosy dining room. Sip on a wine from the huge list in the pretty al fresco pavement area.

Truly Italian cuisine is available at Da Paolo restaurant, with pasta, meat and fish dishes proving ever popular. Pan-fried and juicy king prawns come cooked in chilli, white wine and garlic alongside flavoursome saffron rice. Alternatively, the Da Paolo menu features veal escalope with shallots and tarragon, dramatically flamed in brandy sauce and drizzled with cream. Indulgent desserts include the stunning warm chocolate cake with fudge sauce and chunks of chocolate brownie.

Enjoy an elegant wine from the extensive list, surrounded by Tuscan-orange walls dotted with framed black and white photos. Red roses deck the tables at Da Paolo in Goodge Street, while plush red banquette seats exude sophistication.

Offering a wonderfully authentic, family-run vibe, Da Paolo is a favourite independent Italian restaurant in London. Goodge Street Tube Station is a 4-minute walk away.

    I have been to Da Paolo many times. Every time I have been to this friendly, family restaurant I am amazed at the high standards of the staff, the ambience and of course the "traditional" Italian dishes, plus of course the specials of the day. The wine list is well stocked and both thhe food and wine offer amazing value for a restaurant in the Fitzrovia part of London. They always try to seat me at my favourite table so I am a little biased but I love this small, homely yet totally professional restaurant.
