Had the Canestri & Broccoli

My new place to eat! Enjoyed a Sat. lunch with my husband. It was packed but the line went quickly. Fresh and delicious food, look like a popular place to eat by seeing how the line was constant and people were willing to wait. Looking forward to coming back to try the other menu items!

4 words : Get the veal chops. That's all you need to know. It is so delicious that I can't believe it's not a $30 plate. This is the best place to get great food when you Just want a casual, relaxing atmosphere (and without the outrageous price).

One ordered the rigatoni--which was so good ( we all... More

I love this cafe in Houston with a great variety of Italian dishes and hand made pasta. The dishes are huge so unless you want some to take home you can order a half serving and have plenty. They have all kinds of wonderful drinks and fresh iced tea and lemonade. Order at the counter and then pick up and... More

We had a great lunch here on Saturday afternoon. The weather was nice so we sat at one of the few outdoor tables. There was a bit of traffic going by so the street noise level was above average. Otherwise this was a great choice. We each ordered a sandwich, my husband had the Italian hoagie and I had a... More

This might not be a great place but it is VERY good and in a really good location. Lunch with friends - you can always count on quality and good service. I travel to Houston 2 or 3 times a year and make it a point to stop by for lunch.

We stopped at Paulie's on a recent trip to Houston. It was recommended by a local for a good, reasonably priced lunch. The food was really good and the cookies were great. Ordering is done at the counter, and you are called when the food has been prepared. The counter service was really good. If you are looking for table... More

Heard their poorboy's are even better. They have cucumber water...yummy. I had the family Italian salad....excellent salad. The staff was wonderful. We ordered at the counter.

We found Paulie's last year on our trip to Houston and returned this year intent on going back to the same restaurant. I had the grilled vegetables and my hubby had a pasta (restaurant made pasta) dish. Amazing!! The wait was indicative of a popular restaurant. We love the reasonable prices, the menu variety, and the diverse crowd.
