Nice family friendly place with tasty food and wine starting at $15/bottle. The garlic bread is incredible. The total restaurant probably seats between 20-30 people, so it's not the best for large groups.

We are visiting for a few months and are right around the corner from Paul's Pasta Shop. It is winter and at this point I prefer take-out. I can't speak to the entire dining experience, but I can say that this is not a place you go to for atmosphere, it is crowded every time I go in for take-out... More

We love going here for the fresh pasta. You can even buy it by the pound to take home with you, along with their sauces and meatballs. It's a small restaurant and can fill up fast, especially in the summer. Parking can also be tough in the summer. The menu has many traditional italian favorites. They also serve tiramisu and...

Four of us had dinner at Paul's Pasta on December 23rd. We each ordered the same thing - - - homemade lasagna. It is to die for! The pasta is homemade and the sauce is thick and delicious! The bread they serve at the table with it is crusty with a soft center. . . . .just the way it... More

To find an Italian restaurant that makes their own pasta on the premises is hard to find. When I visited Paul's Pasta they have their pasta maker right in the front window, so no mistaking the freshness of their pasta! The whole experience of this quaint diner is true Italian at its best. I had the pleasure of eating their... More

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!
