About Paolo’s

Since 1958, Paolo’s has consistently
remained the favorite of Silicon Valley
locals and visitors alike.

Second-generation owner Carolyn Allen maintains the Allen family’s longstanding commitment to their Italian heritage by weaving the unique traditions and techniques of regional Italian cuisine through a modern interpretive menu and by acquiring the finest local and imported ingredients. This commitment makes Paolo’s style as fashionable and contemporary today as it was forty years ago.

Maître d’ and Sommelier Jalil Samavarchian directs a knowledgeable and professional staff in this dramatic setting overlooking Guadalupe River Park, lovingly maintains a spectacular wine list of exceptional breadth and depth, and develops a uniquely personal rapport with Paolo’s clientele.

Paolo’s has been a consistent Wine Spectator “Best of Excellence” and DiRoNa Award Winner.

Paolo’s professional memberships include the National Restaurant Association, Gruppo Ristoratori Italiani, Italian Wine Institute, Chef’s Collaborative 2000, and Women Chefs and Restaurateurs.
