even though there are a number of other excellent restaurants nearby we make it a point to eat at Paul's Pasta whenever we are in the Groton area ... their fresh pasta serves as the basis for a number of delicious meal offerings ... the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff make it a family favorite

I absolutely love Paul's Pasta! They make their own pasta and everything is delicious! My favorite dish is the lobster ravioli with Alfredo sauce. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Everything on the menu is great! It is my go to place for special occasions!

It's like eating at a friend's house. The pasta is perfectly made. Lobster ravioli is a favorite with Alfredo, pink, or pesto. It doesn't matter, it's all fantastic! The bread helps you finish every drop and is delicious in and of itself. This is a casual place on the river under the bridge. Carafes of wine, soda from cans, and... More

I've read reviews on Paul's and I agree. The downfall is space. Tiny restaurant, many customers, minimal seating. But...I love the Carbonara. Friends and family I've brought there have enjoyed other dishes. Maybe some day I'll try them.. Their creamy garlic house dressing is fabulous, can't get enough. Outside deck, not during fly season. Not very handicapped accessible. No ramp,... More

This is a little place in Groton. They make their own fresh pasta there. The meals are very good and inexpensive. Don't expect gourmet. But good for a casual meal, or if you're in the area, or coming back from the beach. It's on the water too. The Alfredo sauce is the best and I'm not an alfredo kind of... More

P, a dish they are famous for.aul's Pasta is an extremely popular restaurant with outstanding food. Seating is somewhat limited and crowded, but worth the frequent wait. There are many good choices on the menu. My absolute favorite is the chicken picatta, a dish they are famous for. Paul's is also known for their catering.

We live about a 15-minute drive from Paul's Pasta and think of it as one of our regular casual dining spots. It's small, cozy, and homey--not fine dining by any means, but really good pasta at very good prices. The drawback is that they don't take reservations and it is almost always full unless you go quite early. There is... More

While visiting our son in the Navy, we wanted to take him to his favorite restaurant...this was it!! We had to wait only 10-15 minutes for a table. The restaurant is quite small, but after eating there...you don't care how small or how long of a wait to be seated. Our son and my husband had the Fettucini Alfredo, and... More
