Overpriced pasta! Very small servings for really expensive prices. Not that great. Atmosphere is nice

We were a group of 15 and they gave us the upstairs room surrounded by windows that looked lovely. They allowed access to decorate and were very open to last minute additions and changes. We had a dedicated server who was very accommodating and professional. We had basically the whole upstairs to ourselves for a fabulous private gathering. The food... More

My aunt loved the fresh asparagus with homemade pasta, my favorite is the bufala mozzarella and tomato appetizer, my uncle always orders the tagliolini with clams. Gluten free niece was pleased to find the eggplant parmigiana on the menu. Great service-and save room for the creme brûlée or the tiramisu. They have the best espresso and cappuccino in town. In...

I understand wanting to cut calories but in response to the recent post I have to say cutting the tarragon cream sauce from this meal would be like cutting out sauce from a pasta dish lol. Don't do it! It obviously ties the dish together. It just makes sense that you would ruin the dish by doing so. I'm in... More

Ate at Paganini's this past Saturday as part of a girlfriends' get-away weekend. We liked their pizza, thought the salad was good but boy-oh-boy were we ever disappointed in the entree. We ordered a veal dish with lemons and cream, but told them to hold the cream. The veal tasted like cardboard and looked like processed bologna!!! It was horrible.... More

Haven't been there for a long time and went last eve. The pasta is so good and tender that you know it's home made. All our dinners were outstanding. the fungi salad is still my favorite. My wife and I had baby clams with pasta and it's not on the menu, you have to ask for it. Usually it 's... More

Very good homemade pasta dishes that were not over-sauced. European sized portions. Service fair at best. Drink refills and bread very slow. Outside dining in warm weather. May be a bit noisy depending on traffic. More smiles when greeted by the wait staff would of improved the atmosphere.

My wife and I have eaten here twice in fall of 2013 when we have been in mood to be in Doylestown for dinner. Late fall we ate outside twice here and had a very good time and meal when we were there. Just need to remember it is a BYOB. Once we were planning to go somewhere else and... More

Recently returned from a trip to Rome, as we sat on the sun porch, our lunch at Paganini was so delicious that it was hard to believe we weren't still there! Along w/ a crisp green salad, my paper-thin spinach & cheese frittata was served piping hot in a small skillet & was the best I've had anywhere. The thin-crusted... More
