A minor cock up with our booking but seated quite quickly. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. Food was good and fairly priced.

This is a really vibrant, family restaurant in the heart of Lindfield. It's very popular and busy, make sure you book a table especially at the weekend.

Had never been here before but the reviews were very promising - we weren't disappointed. The place was unsurprisingly packed on a Saturday night but the service was prompt, friendly and authentically Italian.

Having read a few previous reviews we were surprised when we rang up 24 hours early to book a table for three for Saturday night. Although we were accommodated, the impression was very much that we were being squeezed in. We arrived to a very full and noisy restaurant, with an excellent atmosphere. The food was good without being outstanding,... More

We enjoyed a family lunch together in one of our favorite restaurants. Always a friendly welcome with good quality food. We weren't disappointed. It lived up to its normal high standards and a great time was had by all.

We've been to Paolino Italian Restaurant for a lot of occasions already- and on valentines my husband surprised me hugely! The meal was delicious, and very romantic, especially loving the staffs' friendly service. On valentines, the restaurant looked amazing with the heart shaped balloons for every single table, and heart shaped chocolates were given with the bill. Our favourite was... More

This is a really friendly place with consistently good food. We have eaten lunch here now at least six times and always tasty. They are helpful and give prompt service. Good to try.

Lovely, friendly restaurant. Great atmosphere and attentive staff. Nice to find an authentic Italian rather than sticking to the big brands out there. Bread and butter pud was delicious. Pizzas amazing. Will be returning

I like to throw a small lunch party to "celebrate" my birthday and this is the fourth year running it's been at Paolino's. We were a party of 6 and the food, wine and service were all excellent, as usual. Well done to Paolo and his team!
