Highly recommend this business and Paolo for his expertise and professionalism. I have seen a lot of his work first hand, and his attention to detail and perfectionism is second to none. Paolo has done many jobs for me over the years, is a wonderful person to deal with, and is a true master of his craft.

Paolo is lovely to deal with and has completed a number of jobs for us in a very timely manner. His knowledge and expertise can't be faulted and he has brought life to a number of pieces in our house. Would highly recommend him for any timber works, new or old. He is honest and reliable and will tell you what you can and can't do/expect.

I have been a collector for over 45 years of early-mid C19th English and European furniture - mainly in Brazilian Rosewood, Walnut and Oak. I have trusted Paolo with at least 8 pieces over the last 3 years – some required extensive restoration (replacing missing pieces), repairing someone else's terrible workmanship and re-polishing, both French and wax. I have dealt with many craftsmen over the years – I have not met a better antique furniture craftsman and artisan –Paolo's skill and work is exceptional. I can honestly say that I think finding someone like Paolo in Brisbane, is a rare find. He does not charge high prices for his work - he has given me excellent value for money. As a bonus - he is also a really nice guy to deal with.

I highly recommend Paolo. He is extremely professional and passionate about his work and takes great pride in everything that he does. I wouldn't trust anyone else. He is punctual and when you see the magic he performs you won't be left disappointed. Thank you so much Paolo.

Would like to thank Paolo for the work he completed. Paolo was very easy to talk to and listened as I explained the repair I want done. Would recommend him to anyone looking for restoration work and repairs.

I cannot recommend this business highly enough. The many years of European expertise and knowledge, the attention to detail, the work ethic and diligence and the old-fashioned, friendly and reliable service make this business second to none. Paolo Bertelli and his daughter Aurora, in particular, have looked after us for many years, and are a delight to deal with.

Paolo Bertelli explained everything he would do and the options we could choose and we couldn't be happier with our new kitchen that looks as good as new now! So glad we didn't replace the whole kitchen when we could just regenerate it changing bench top, sink and tap saving money. The before-after photos are amazing, we love it! Thank you Paolo! Thanks also to your lovely wife Ilenia who helped us in choosing the most suitable color of the top to match the color of the kitchen doors.

Paolo worked so hard on my stairs and rails to make the area around my pool safe and functional. They worked efficiently, quickly and with precision. Paolo's craftmanship is quality and perfection. He takes pride in his workmanship. I will be definitely recommending him to my family and friends. I will be using his services again.

My beautiful table suddenly gave way a few months ago. It was put aside until I found this business. Paolo picked up my table, fixed it, brought it back to its former glory and dropped it off this morning. I could use many words to describe the workmanship and service. Professional, timely, precise simply an artist at work. One word stands out for me: PASSIONATE. It is when one is truly passionate that they can excel and become master in their field. This is what Paolo is a true master in carpentry and restorations. Thank you Paolo!
