"The staff from the maitre d to the person who refills your water are so gracious and attentive. The food is reliably fantastic. I've been a few times now and it's the perfect neighborhood restaurant. While it's not inexpensive, the portions are ample and I've never had anything that was less than perfect. They will happily substitute gluten free pasta too. When the oysters were a special, they were the freshest I've had in a long time. If I could complain about anything, I miss the booths from its previous owner. However, everyone enjoys their meal so much that I've met some very interesting people who are happy to ask or tell what they are eating. My new favorite restaurant."

"We've always really liked Paola's. The last time we visited was no exception. We frequently order the same dishes because they're so good but every time I try something new I love it. It makes it difficult the next time I visit because I don't know what to choose. Perhaps I should just close my eyes and point a finger in the direction of the menu. I'm sure I would be happy with the random selection. The people are very friendly too and I mean staff as well as patrons."

"We went to Paola's after Works and Process at the Guggenheim on a Monday evening on Martin Luther King Day. It was a cold blustery night and I was amazed to see so many people in the restaurant. The food was very good, as was the service."

"Paola has a wonderful kitchen. Her pastas are freshly made, and are consistently served with the best accompaniments and correct consistency. Trofie with pesto is the perfect example. The trofie is terrific on its own, but the pesto is tastier than in Liguria! All dishes that come out of her kitchen are done to perfection. New Yorkers know to flock here. Be sure to make a reservation!!"

"Superb pastas and other Italian fare in a polished setting on upper Madison. Always a gracious dining experience. Paola herself is great. The problems with this place are the elderly, UES clientele and loud surfaces of the room."

"I have had the seafood salad two times for lunch and it's a delicious and very generous combination of scallops,squid, shrimp. The berries for dessert were fresh and complimented by zabaglione or vanilla ice cream. My friend and I were able to relax and talk without being disturbed for several hours, and we appreciated this very much."

"After nearly 25 years, visited my old neighborhood to find this lovely restaurant where my husband and I had brunch with our 2 sons who live and work in NYC. (We came from CT.)
Lovely decor, excellent service and very good food so I would highly recommend.... Don't see how one could go wrong as this is a gem in Carnegie Hill.

"Visited twice two years ago on my last visit to NYC and was very impresssed. Have just re- visited Paola's and the whole experience was every bit as good from ambience to service to excellent food and wine. Well worth a trip slightly out of the centre of NYC. They've won me."
