We have eaten breakfast here multiple times now and will be back again. Nothing fancy or over the top just good food.

We had a very relaxing business dinner at Panolivo. Service was great as were the apetisers, main meal with a Mediterranean flair and desert. They also offered a good beer selection. Everyone was quite happy and we will return.

Whenever we are in the Paso Robles area at breakfast time, we go to Panolivo and are always satisfied with the food and the service. Just two blocks off the square in old town, they bake their own pastries, which you can also take "to-go". We have also enjoyed various omelettes, tortas, and the brioche french toast. The coffee is... More

I imagine that people heading up and down Highway 101 in the Paso Robles area have no idea what they are driving by when passing the town. There are numerous restaurants, shops, wine tasting rooms, and even a coop art gallery - all circling a town square that features a Carnegie Library (now a museum). So, if you do stop... More

They had a Monday night special of spaghetti. I went with friends. We found the spaghetti dry. I asked for Parmasean Cheese and was charged an extra dollar. I only wanted just a bit on top but they brought at least 1/4 cup. I thought that was greedy.

As my wife and I took a walk around town we noticed what seemed like two restaurants in one - Panolivo & Jaffa, offering kabobs on one side and a more Italian/French menu on the other. Actually, maybe 3 restaurants if you count the bakery/expresso counter. Turns out they have their own bakery in the back of the premises. A... More

This was our 2nd trip to this restaurant and our last. The food was tasteless and service was slow. The grilled panini's looked like sandwiches on English muffins with no grill marks evident, I've had better minestrone soup from a can and the salad was just giant chunks of lettuce in a watery vinegarette. Definitely not worth the 75.00 we... More

This restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Paso. We were there for breakfast, but it seemed they had a pretty good menu for lunch and dinner, also. I had the vegetarian breakfast burrito, which had eggs (egg whites were an option), cheese and thick slices of avocado, in a spinach tortilla wrap. The wrap was very filling, but really delicious....

We were in paso for a couple of days, and our hotel didn't offer breakfast, so we were given a list of places to try. This one was our favourite by far, we had breakfast two consecutive days. The staff were helpful, and the food amazing. There is plenty of parking, and you can sit either inside or outside. This... More

Panolivo Family Bistro is one of my favorite casual eateries in Paso. Owners and chefs Didier and Beatrice serve traditional French family fare with fresh California ingredients, as well as a wide variety of other offerings including many salads, sandwiches, pastas and vegetarian dishes. I love the seafood croustade filled with shrimp, scallops, baby clams and calamari in a creamy... More
