Da Paolo Gastronomia at Great World is an Italian gastronomic wonderland that combines a delicatessen, pizzeria, and a bar.
The Da Paolo Gastronomia outlet at Great World is a veritable little slice of Italy. Opened in 2021, the eight outlet of the Da Paolo Group’s little sprawling Latin gastronomic empire – following its sprawling flagship in Dempsey – combines all-day menus for dining in, a retail section swelling with all manner of produce from across Italy, and everything in between.
Have a hankering for hand-stretched, freshly stone-baked Roman thin crust pizzas? There’s the classic Rucola e Crudo (Parma ham and arugula), or the drippy Quattro Formaggi (four cheeses) to sate your need for pie. Prefer some handmade pasta instead? Comforting options range from Tagliatelle alla Bolognese and Linguine Aglio Olio Calabrese for something more traditional, otherwise the Spicy Lobster Spaghetti and Spaghetti alle Vongole can be a gastronomic reminder of Italy’s surging coastlines and the bounty that hails from its seas.
Swing by in the evenings and you can even pretend it’s aperitivo hour somewhere in Rome or Florence (sans sidewalks). There’s a fabulous selection of aperitivo-type drinks here, ranging from refreshing spritzes – such as the classic Aperol Spritz or a Blood Orange Rosemary Fizz for something more adventurous – to a classic Negroni if you prefer something punchier.
Need to pick up some Italian vino on your way to a home party? There’s a decent wine cellar filled with Prosecco, Barolo or Chianti to choose from. In fact you can pretty much pick up anything you need from Da Paolo Gastronomia Great World for an Italian-themed party or home dinner; we couldn’t resist availing ourselves to some house-churned gelato for the kids, freshly-baked Italian-style wood-fired breads, ready-to-eat meals, or various pantry staples most of which are sourced direct from all across Italy.
In a nutshell? The Da Paolo Gastronomia outlet at Great World essentially offers almost everything a homesick Italian could possibly want, and a welcome casual family-friendly dining option for residents who live in the vicinity.
