We went here for dinner on a Saturday night. It was around 8 and we got right in. Our server was horrible. It was obvious she was probably at the end of her shift and had a long day, plus it was unusually hot for...More

We had a Friday evening dinner on the outdoor deck. Service was great! We shared a Ceasar Salad that was large enough for four people as a "starter" for the meal. I had the lasagna which tasted of fresh, house-made, thin lasagna noodles stacked in...More

Came for dinner with my family of 5. They offer a wide selection, so even my very picky kids were happy. The pizza was terrific. Relaxed atmosphere, a bit loud but perfect for a casual family meal.

My husband had the Antipasta and I had the Margarita Pizza. We both agreed that our meals were great! My pizza was one of the best I've ever eaten anywhere, including Italy.

I went here with my family as we traveled. The kids were all hungry so we quickly found a place to eat. As we walked down the boulevard we came across Paoli's. The service was ok and reasonable. The food was the disappointing part. We...More

I have eaten at Paoli's several times when my kids were young. We had always had lunch, shared a pizza or a pasta dish and some soft drinks and the food is excellent. This last April (2016) I stayed at Big Bear for a couple...More
