We make it a habit to go to Paul's each time we visit our son at the Coast Guard Academy. The pasta and sauces are amazing. The garlic bread is out of this world. We usually have to wait for a table which speaks to its popularity. They have good wine as well. We highly recommend Paul's.

This was our first time eating here and we will definitely be going back. We had to wait even though we went about 5 p.m., but it wasn't a long wait. The staff was pleasant and we had great meals. The pasta was fresh and the best that we have had anywhere!

Loved the lobster ravioli with pink sauce. Good sized portions. A little cramped but charming. Service was pretty good. Parking lot in back. Next time I'll try dessert.

I have been to Paul's many times. I've waited an hour and I have walked right in. No matter the possible wait, they have the freshest and finest pasta around. I suggest getting a small unless you are looking for leftovers. We always get cold pasta salad to go. They normally have three varieties to choose from. I suggest anything... More

Went here on a business trip and it was really good. The wait was long but well worth it. I had the chicken Alfredo (small) but it was huge ! It was under $15 for a meal, drink and cake !

If your looking for a great meal for a even better price you can't go wrong with Paul's pasta. I recommend going for a late lunch so you don't have to wait. Portions are giant and food is always great and the outdoor space on the Thames river can't be beat. The restaurant itself needs a good cleaning and perhaps... More

My cousin and I had lunch at Paul's Pasta Shop and boy oh boy did we enjoy an Italian lasagna. The lasagna was freshly made with plenty of cheeses and meat and sausage and a heaping amount of delicious sauce. The meat and sausage were especially tasty. The restaurant was bustling and it was only 11:45 am on a Saturday.... More

Absolutely wonderful! The service is consistently good, and the food is excellent. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired - bare wood floors, mismatched tables and chairs, and a bit on the noisy side - but you'll forget all that with your first bite. Salads are cold and crisp, and the bread is hot and fresh. The worst thing... More

Everything I have had there is excellent! Great selection of gluten and dairy free options! They are very busy on weekends at dinner time so I will usually call ahead for takeout.
