Great pizza and a large variety of Italian dinners and subs. Eat in, delivery or pick up yourself. The sausage is very tasty.

Stopped for lunch. The veal marsala was outstanding. I could have licked the dish clean. The flavor was wonderful. Will be back soon.

We had business in Catonsville, and were parked just beyond the edge of this restaurant's lot. It was dinner time, so we decided to give it a try. From the outside, it looks like a regular sit-down restaurant, although it isn't really. It took us a minute to get the lay of the land. You have to order at the... More

We celebrated a birthday with a nice dinner here. It is a roomy but warm place with a large selection of Italian specialties. The dining room is nice, but you can certainly dress informally. After soccer practice or work, it's very relaxed here. Everything was delish from the Caesar salad and fried calamari appetizer to our veal Parmesan, pasta dishes,... More

Order at the counter and they call your number. Serve yourself drinks too. I like this better because it's so much faster. Huge portions. I had the Chef P salad, came already tossed with dressing, thank you for that too. I'll be back. This is also great for takeout. One salad can feed 5 people.

Take out or eat in....no matter it's good food. Friendly & helpful staff. Very busy place at lunch & dinner time, especially on Friday & Saturday evenings. Order much like you do at a Pizzaria in Italy, serve yourself drinks and staff brings food to the table. Works well and quite quickly. Large portions (always have enough for another meal)... More

Huge portions at a great price are wonderful when the food is also very good and Chef Paolino's is all of this. This casual family style Italian restaurant has NY style thin crust pizza, great grilled chicken caesar salads and pasta dishes you'll remember for a long time. The classic Italian dishes are perfect and the seafood dishes are fresh... More

When you enter Chef Paolino, you first order at a counter, but don't be put off by this. The prices are excellent for what you get, the dishes are delivered to your table, and everything is delicious!! We've had pizza, sausage and peppers, spaghetti and meatballs, etc. The main courses are served with pasta and a large salad and garlic... More
