We've been coming to Di Paulo's for over 20 years. It is the most consistent, excellent dining experience that we've ever known. The drinks are generous and always exactly what you ordered, the food is extraordinary Northern Italian, and the wait staff is friendly and well-trained.

As usual, the service was excellent, and the food was outstanding. I truly enjoy their seasonal menus and innovative specials. Our waiter has been there for years, and was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu. We’ve been coming on special occasions for years, and will keep coming back.

From beginning to end this restaurant never fails to hit all the right notes. Excellent service and the food was wonderful. We had brought a friend up from the south side to introduce him to Di Paolo. He is now a fan as well. Keep it up ladies and gents Di Paolo is always a great dining experience.

Our previous experience with di Paolo was good. This last experience was lousy. We waited far too long to be served initially considering how few people were there. When our salads arrived, they had the appearance of being made a day before, lacked any degree of crispness. the entree waiting period was too long. When the food did arrive, it was luke warm as though it was prepared and then allowed to cool somewhat before being served . The server would not have won any medals for warmth nor ability to serve us in a timely manner.

Will we return? Will we recommend di Paolo? When pigs fly!!!

Di Paolo is a great spot for Italian food. Everything is made in house and it is all delicious. The service is also spot on. We went for something special on my son's birthday and it was fantastic.

We were hoping for a good Italian meal tonight. The food was a bit better than the average Italian restaurant in Metro Atlanta. The waiter did a fairly good job in telling us what the specials were in addition to the staple items on the menu.

The food is somewhat "homemade" as most restaurants have their 50% prepared because it comes out of box /bag and it is reheated. To some degree, this is one of those type of establishment.

After we ordered our bottle of sparkling water, several minutes later our Italian bread arrive with olive and some black pepper. I tasted a sip of some wine, liked what I tasted, and ordered a glass. We then proceeded to order our entrees. Within about 10 minutes, our meals arrive and that was the last time we saw our server. That was a shame because he was doing such a good job with everything else. We finished our meals and waited for the server to come back and tell us about desert. There again, he got lost trying to wait on other customers. We gave it some thought and came up with the understanding that he was trying to wait on every table in the dining room by himself. That didn't make any sense because there was another waiter who was taking care of another table next to ours.

I finally his attention and asked for a desert menu. Again, we waited and waited. He finally came back to our desert order and within 5 minutes, had returned with our deserts and a check.
Its funny how the bill appears with the last course almost like " Pay the bill and get the hell out".

As I started to say in the beginning, we were hoping that This restaurant would be a vast improvement above the many , many Italian establishments in the Atlanta area. With the exception of mediocre service, it wasn't. This was our first time to this restaurant, and if the waiter staff ever changes, we might consider returning.

For us, "its back to the drawing boards"

Family birthday dinner, great service and dinner. The osso bucco was fall-apart tender and delicious. The polenta with shrimp and sausage was also excellent. Our waiter gave great advice on the dishes and wines.

Great - as always. Love DiPaolos. It is always good. Great to go with friends or just as a couple, last minute, and sit at the bar. The food is always excellent, no matter what you try. The specials are worth asking about. Very good wine list. DiPaolos is always busy, mostly local regulars, so you know it's good. I think it is one of the best restaurants in the Roswell/Johns Creek/Alpharetta Holcomb Bridge area.
