Di Paolo’s was a very pleasant surprise, the night I found myself in this large, traditional Italian restaurant in Penns Grove. Those who know me know how fussy I am about my Italian food in restaurants, and I’ve often been disappointed with the options in South Jersey which are too Americanized for my tastes. From the pleasant environment to the excellently prepared food, I’d say Di Paolo’s certainly is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area, though with a hefty pricetag that makes it a definite special occasion restaurant and not one I’d be able to afford dining at regularly.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
