Perfect spot. Nothing to look at outside so you have no idea what's inside. Very old school Italian place that locals swear by. Very authentic Italian made by a first generation immigrant family. Some say it needs updating inside but I hope they don't. It's like going back in time to an authentic Little Italy spot. Paul, who started the... More

We have been visiting Pauls for years since we used to live nearby. Paul paid great attention to detail growing fresh herbs and vegetables for his meals. We were very sorry to hear he passed away but his son is following in his footsteps. The menu is still the same and we had a very nice meal. The pasta was... More

I've known Paul's reputation, but never been, as I though "fine dining" meant "formal". WRONG. I travel (and eat out) for a living. Paul's stacks up to the best of the best I've experienced in NYC, Cincinnatti, DC, Atlanta....places I frequent. The wait staff is as attentive and knowledgeable a crew as I've experienced. They speak confidently not only about... More

My friends have been coming to Paul's for years. They new the original owner and know the son who runs the restaurant. The ambiance needs major overhaul to be on high prices that they charge for the food here. It is stuck in the 70s with the service that while efficient and friendly still lacks personality. The bread basket was... More

My 90 year old dad had just passed and we all decided to toast him and eat well at Paul's. The food was very southern -- Italian and US. I was touched that they could make my pasta gluten free. The rest of the group was completed sated with old standards. I am really impressed. by how they took on... More

I recently visited Paul's for the 3rd time since earlier this summer. From the first visit, the wait staff and management make you feel welcome and right at home. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The tables are set with white tablecloths and fabric napkins, a rarity in today's restaurant crowd. We were accommodated in the bar area one evening... More

Every time we have dinner at Paul's, we are delighted to find that the quality never changes. The food is delicious no matter what you order! The atmosphere will remind you of a time when dinner was always severed on white linen tablecloths and starched napkins were placed neatly at every place setting. If you want an authentic taste of...

My wife and I were looking for a place to have the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding. Since the wedding party was so large, we were having a difficult time finding a venue. We went to Paul's to check out the bar area as we were looking for a private room. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite big enough to accommodate... More

We had gathered in town to celebrate. The team at Paul's is the best. They were very attentive and did everything to make sure we had a good time. Two of our group are vegetarians and enjoyed the mushroom raviolis. All our dishes were wonderful. I would return and sample another pasta on the menu.
