Is your Chef able to accommodate Dietary Restrictions?
We strive to ensure that all guests are able to dine with us, regardless of their dietary restrictions. We request that you let us know upon making your reservation of any allergies and/or other restrictions you may have so that we may inform the Chef and do our very best to accommodate them. Should you or your guests have any severe allergies or restrictions, we would highly recommend your taking extreme caution in dining in our establishment, as we do prepare seafood, products with nuts, and other foods that are common allergens, and therefore cannot guarantee traces may not be present. Please let your server know of all allergies and dietary restrictions when dining with us.
Are children welcome at Paolo's?
We welcome guests of all ages, and have a special Kid’s Menu awaiting your arrival! We encourage you to dine early, as Paolo’s is a lively atmosphere as the night wears on. We welcome the family, school groups, and church groups, especially if you’re on vacation or visiting DC for a special occasion. We will do our very best to accommodate any special requests for children and work to ensure their experience with us is memorable and fun!
Do you offer Live Music?
Live music is currently offered during Brunch on Sundays. Italian music is played all other times, and makes for a fun, vibrant atmosphere.
Do you accommodate Large Parties, Private Parties or Buyouts?
Large parties and groups are most definitely welcome at Paolo’s. While we do not have a private room, we are able to accommodate large parties (15-40) in our main dining room, just off to the kitchen or in the café. We don’t normally rent out the patio, but have been known to do so on occasion with a secured food & beverage minimum.
As well, we welcome buyouts for parties of 100-200 should you wish to make your event completely private. Buyouts have use of the entire restaurant, including the patio, and may have a band or live music if desired.
