The very first Paolo's found its home in historic Georgetown in the 1980's, and has been a Georgetown staple ever since.

The bustling ristorante has become a corner fixture in this centuries old melting pot amongst politicians, travelers, shoppers and students.

Dine outside and watch the world go by, or sit inside and watch your pizza being prepared in our fabulous brick oven, and most of all - enjoy! Located in the heart of Georgetown, Paolo's serves fine Cal-Italian cuisine full of exciting pizzas and exquisite pastas.

    It would have been nice if we were not closed for remodeling. I would’ve thought the OpenTable would be aware of this. In any event we went all that way for nothing. 8/23/2018.

    This restaurant is closed/out of business. I went there with my family on August 24 and had to find somewhere else to eat.

    Ate outside on a very hot day. Was just what we were looking for. Had a light mozzarella and tomato salad which was as perfect for a hot day. Husband has gnocchi and son had a huge piece of salmon. Both good. Good solid gGeorgetown favorite.

    The restaurant was empty at 7pm yet the service was slow and inattentive. Our salads came out with the meal even though we specifically asked for them to be first. Our water glasses were rarely refilled. The food was workmanlike though oily. To be fair... the bread was quite good. We didn’t see a server after our meal was served and had to go find someone to ask for a check. Overall... a disappointing experience at a place we had heard good things about.

    Meh. Okay service and decent pizza. Nothing special and very overpriced. That’s Georgetown I guess.

    The service was wonderful and the food was amazing! We had a great rep with our waitress. The seafood was well cooked and didn’t taste fishy or anything like that.

    We don’t know what happened to Paolo’s? I Made a reservation prior to arriving, and the manager looked at the screen and said, “it’s not supposed to do that”. It was odd. Like he was surprised and disappointed we were there?

    Paolo's was always a go to place for me. Shame on me for not trying it in recent years. Something happened. The quality of the food is barley passable. The place looks dirty and very down on its heels. Even the menus are so old the lettering is wiped off in some places. Very strange. I will not be going back.
