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.

    Lovely friendly environment neighborhood venue. Authentic food and sensibly priced wine.Great place for a catchup on a Sunday night ....which was surprisingly buzy.

    I came here for the the old style ambience and for a simple grilled fish meal. I didn't expect much as almost always the Italian restaurants that have been open some time in London haven't changed their food much in decades, whilst the quality of the food scene has rocketed. This was the case here - uninspiring food and mediocre cooking. Service not particularly charming. There are now several mid price Italian places in London where the food is streets ahead, and service often better.

    It was the first time in London for us. After a busy day of walking and visiting we got hungry.
    Seeing as it was the second day, we decided to go dining so I went searching for some good and nice restaurants.
    I read some good revieuws about restaurant Da Paolo and it was like it was told.
    Next time when we go back to London we go to the same friendly, inviting establishment.

    Lovely atmosphere and tasty, home cooked food. Starters were delicious and generous. Main courses were well-seasoned and authentic. Service was excellent. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable meal for a very reasonable price in a deservedly popular restaurant.
