Great Neighborhood Find

This is a very popular eating place in our neighborhood. It has been around for quite some time. It's great for lunch - serving sandwiches, pasta, salads. It's friendly, happening, and fun to eat here. Good for families. Good for casual business lunches. I believe it's open for diner too, but I... read more

This place has good food. Not terribly expensive. Good salmon dish, Terrific oso buco. Maybe the best eggplant I've had at a restaurant! No parking but really good food

Went here with 2 others on a Monday evening and the place was pretty busy. You go to the counter, order and find a table or vice versa. Or that's how it's meant to work. You have a bunch of tables where the customers have finished dinner and drinks and just sit there with a glass of water chatting on... More

This neighborhood eatery has stood the test of time. Good sandwiches, some pasta dishes and daily chef's specials. Popular for lunch and dinner. Happy hour wine prices. It's often crowded and requires some waiting around. The grilled tuna sandwich is tasty. I don't prefer their style of potato salad or pasta salad.

Excellent food, I gave it an ave score because the only thing we didn't care for was when their Square register was turned to us for signature there were 3 large boxes, 15%, 18% and 20% tips center screen. Small print for no thanks or custom tip. Surprised they were expecting a tip, before we even ate and determined quality... More

After being paleo for over two years, I have told myself I didn't miss pasta. What I haven't missed is regularly prepared store-bought pasta. The pasta at Paulie's is deliciously hearty and almost nutty in flavor. I had the shells with garlic and broccoli - in a half-portion which was huge! - and it was delicious. Hubby had a pasta...

Ok folks if you want some from scratch pasta and amazing sauce then head to Paulie's! The salads are amazing and the chicken parmesan is fantastic! There are special throughout the week and the desserts are amazing! This is a treasure of a find and I highly recommend finding a couple of buddies and splitting some pasta! You will not... More

Quaint bistro, good beers, happy hour is noon to 4pm. Wife had a Buffalo Bayou Great White Buffalo and 1/2 Spinach salad topped with sushi grade tuna. I had a Stone Go To IPA and the lunch special 1/2 Petronella panini and side Caesar. We split a decorated short bread cookie. Definitely a new favorite place. We might come back... More
