London has a competitive dining scene, and to survive, a restaurant has to be up there with the very best. So when we tell you that Da Paolo Restaurant London has been in business down on Charlotte Place in Fitzrovia since 1990, you can take that as a mark of quality. It offers the atmosphere of a traditional Italian village in the centre of London, with a menu replete with classics from up and down the bel paese, as well as regional specialities and house signatures. Book a table and head out to Fitzrovia – take the tube to Goodge Street and wander around the corner to Charlotte Place – for one of the best, most-loved Italian restaurants to be found anywhere in London.
As we said, Da Paolo Restaurant London is reminiscent of a traditional Italian village right in the centre of London, thus from the decor you can expect a certain amount of ambience and tranquility, classic white tablecloths and a wonderfully warm welcome. Da Paolo Restaurant is perfect for groups of friends or family and also offers luxurious private dining opportunities. Over the years the menu has adapted and grown but always stayed true to its Italian roots, and now diners of Fitzrovia and beyond are able to enjoy tastes from the backstreets of Bologna to the middle of Modena.
Everything at Da Paolo London is good but we’d certainly recommend the set menu – perfect for a pre-theatre meal – with a starter of grilled Italian sausage with salad and pecorino cheese, a main of pesecapada di Salmoriglio, swordfish grilled with lemon, fresh oregano and chives and a tiramisu to top it all off. Alternatively, the main menu is brimming with fresh and exciting pasta options, fish, meat and salads. You really can’t go wrong with the pappardelle all'Anatra with duck, sage, mixed mushrooms and a white wine sauce. On Charlotte Place, Da Paolo Restaurant really is one of the finest Italian restaurants we know of in Fitzrovia.
What a lovely restaurant, great food and great service. A little surprise we found on trip advisor and glad we went with it. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.
Good food and service and nice ambience - definitely recommend for a nice evening meal. Starter portion was big - so you may wish to share if you have a smaller appetite!
The Food was really well cooked and the waitress was most helpful We sat down stairs as it was much quieter there so would go back again
