One of the places where you feel welcome and served from the second you walk through the door! We all have our favourite dishes but also like to sample the extensive 'specials' menu ... I am not a vegetarian but the vegetarian lasagne I picked one evening from this menu was far better than any other I've ever tasted. The... More

When we arrived for our Saturday evening reservation, the restaurant was buzzing so you definitely need to book in advance. Words of warning: portions are generous and service isn't included! The menu is one of the most extensive we've seen but the owner visits each table to talk through starters and mains. We were warned that the soup of the... More

We were welcomed and had a seat in the reception area - which I understand is the norm. We were offered drinks and had a chance to review the menu and discuss the specials. Our order was taken and we were then escorted to our table. The table is basically yours for the evening so there is no rush to... More

Casa Paolo is one of my favourite places to go for special meals. It's never a hurried experience and the owners are friendly and take the time to describe the specials in mouth watering detail. My mouth has even watered at the descriptions of some dishes that I don't even like! The menu is good and varied. As they source... More

Reading through the reviews prior to our visit, expectations were high, service and the staff were polite and helpful. The food was average, deserts were very dissapointing, there are far better resturants in Swindon. Not a place for a revisit for my friends and I.

We visited here with friends for Saturday lunch on the 5th November. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We relaxed in the comfy seating area while we chose our food and had some drinks. The choice on the menu was impressive and the details with which the specials were delivered; you could tell everything was home made. All of... More

Took my Mum for her birthday, staff were really friendly and helpful. We ended up with most of the specials which were amazing, beautifully cooked, presented and great sized portions. Superb evening out. A+++

Was taken here for my Birthday and was seriously impressed. I've never been the greatest fan of Italian food so have not booked here before. Have to say I was incredibly impressed. The end to end experience was exceptional from the service to the fantastic food. If you are ever tempted and stuck with what to order have a steak.... More

We had a lovely meal at Casa Paolo on 21 October 2016. This is such a nice place; it is a small and very welcoming restaurant with a great menu of rustic Italian dishes. The owner greets you personally and takes time to explain the many specials. The food is brilliant and very reasonably priced. The dessert trolley of homemade... More

Cosy setting. Beautiful food with excellent choice. Something to cater for most tastes. Wine list was good and puddings incredible. Staff are very friendly and give a very high quality service. Definitely impressed and would recommend to anyone.
