  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Charming
  • Good for special occasions
PAOLO'S is a charmingly buzzy 50-seat scratch-kitchen and bar with a core menu of refreshed Italian-American, Mediterranean, and seasonal New England recipes reflecting Boston-based chef Paul Delios’ 40-year career.

At his former national award-winning restaurants (Paolo's, Meze and Kane's Donuts) Delios earned acclaim for his mountain-size heart and multi-cuisine mastery. His signature pizza crust, pasta combos and sumptuous entrées have always shined bright.

Named by Boston Common Magazine in 2024 as one of Boston's best restaurants in the suburbs, with dinner and bar service Tuesday through Saturday, PAOLO'S is the first concept by boutique restaurant group Veloce Brands, LLC, founded by Delios and 25-year food and lifestyle writer, editor and communications director Jen Chase-Corwin (owner/creative director).

Come for favorites. Come for specials. (And did we mention the pizza?)

    It was our third and last time. We were greeted by the owner and got quickly seated since no one was there. We ordered the chicken wings… came out hot and very tasty. I wish I could remember our waitress’s name… she was very lovely. I ordered the Farfelle with spinach, sundried tomatoes and pancetta in a wine sauce. My friend got the Bianco pizza and added caramelized onions. My dish came out piping hot and it looked gross… I started to try it and notice the bow tie pasta was all mush and the sauce was saturated the dish. My friend’s pizza had no taste and she added more grated cheese, salt and hot pepper. My friend tried some of mine and agreed the sauce and pasta was nasty. We did tell the waitress and my friend notice her tell the owner. The waitress did mention after awhile to re make it and I just wanted to leave. The air conditioning was nearly working and fruit flies began to appear. She shut our light off on the table and that helped. The part that is bothering is that the owner was there the whole time and never came by…there was only about 6 other people in the whole place. That’s it… moving on.

    Paolo's was excellent. We have been many times and this visit didn't disappoint. We brought family members who had never been before and they were blown away. All entreé portions are enough for another meal. The lamb chop special presented with 5 grilled loin chops with roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables. Our party of 6 shared 2 apps and 2 portions of tiramisu for dessert. There was enough for all of us. We will be back. Paolo's never disappoints.

    We recently enjoyed a mid-week dinner and drinks at Paolo's. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The drinks were divine. The food was fresh-tasting and perfectly prepared. Don't be fooled by Paolo's unpretentious location, it's a gem!

    Excellent Italian food at a reasonable price. Bothe gluten free and standard pastas are excellent. Portions are large if a bit heavy. They use a lot of butter/cream/oil which makes it delicious but not light. Highly recommend.
