Keeping it real is the ethos behind Darlington’s newest eatery, San Paolo, with a commitment to cooking and serving authentic Italian dishes. Although there is the familiar Italian fare that you would expect to find on the menu San Paolo is introducing the Cicchetti – an Italian-style tapas that encourages sharing.
Originating in Venice, Cicchetti dishes are ordered as smaller plates – perhaps two or three to share, rather than individual meals. The intimacy between friends or family of sharing a number of dishes adds to the enjoyment of the meal and allows everyone to taste different things. With Cicchetti dishes such as salt and pepper squid, baked aubergine with provolone, and chicken involtinil lemon butter and rocket, at £5.95 each or £12.95 for three, they are definitely worth trying for that something a bit different.
The opening hours allow for light lunches, and hot and cold drinks from 10am to 4pm every day, with the evening menu available from 4pm until 9pm. To book a table please get in touch
