Best authentic Italian food in the area. Closed Sundays but open the rest of the week. Dine inside in cooler weather or outside during the warmer months. Enjoy the marvellous Italian ice cream for desert!

We usually eat in the Bent Arms when we visit Lindfield but on this occasion they were really busy so we went next door to the Paolino Italian Restaurant. We were given a warm welcome and shown to a comfortable table in a very bright airy restaurant with lovely decor and a great Italian atmosphere. There was an extensive range... More

I find it nice to be served by Italians who were friendly and served us well. Food was good great choices and good children's meals. I had mussels to start which were ok a touch on... More

A lovely little Italian. The food is fresh, the wine menu is good and the staff are friendly. I have eaten here a few times, with both family and my boyfriend and can confirm that it is perfect for any occasion.

This is a really vibrant, family restaurant in the heart of Lindfield. It's very popular and busy, make sure you book a table especially at the weekend. Being so busy does make for a slower service, but the relaxed atmosphere lets you forgive this. The food isn't the best in the world but it is good enough to be enjoyable... More

The place was unsurprisingly packed on a Saturday night but the service was prompt, friendly and authentically Italian. There's a good choice on the menu to cater for all tastes - the cod and porcini were both very good, and the pizzas looked authentic and... More
