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.

    This is a lovely and very authentic Italian restaurant. We have visited a couple of times now, and the food has always been amazing (try the grilled lamb steak), portions huge, and the service really friendly. No wonder it's always busy – booking recommended!

    We had a wonderful evening at Da Paolo. The food was again outstanding. We all enjoyed our authentic traditional Italian pasta dishes, including one of us who is celiac and appreciated having a delicious gluten free pasta dish. The high quality food and excellent wine list is very good value for money. The atmosphere at Da Paolo is also fabulous. The location, in the heart of buzzing Fitzrovia is excellent. We definitely consider Da Paolo a restaurant we will return to again and again.

    We found the portions off- puttingly large, just a plate of food piled high. Like most Italian restaurants tables very close together. Service was very good though and a good choice of wine.

    Restaurant very nice and cozy, food very good. Waitress didn't smile much, though. Took a while to order dessert and she seemed to be getting a little inpatient. Overall very good.
