Exposed brick walls and two-person tables inside Paolos Trattoria help convey a sense of intimacy. As guests lean in to whisper over tables, waiters fill glasses with wine and discreetly deliver plates filled with Italian favorites such as mixed greens salads tossed with dried figs and goat cheese, lobster ravioli, and roasted vegetable pizzas pulled straight from a brick oven. Most portions are large enough to share, which makes for a romantic and delicious dinner, unlike eating a silver tray filled with red roses, which is just romantic and not delicious. After finishing bites of panko-crusted veal milanese or salmon seared in a cast iron skillet, dessert is served in the form of tiramisu, chocolate mousse, or bread pudding with rum butter sauce and vanilla ice cream.
