Never failed me

I really like Paulie's. Very bright, airy and open space... casual but not dressed down. I like their menu though tend to stick to the bucatini amatriciana (while I like the spice level, it would send most Italians into the stratosphere) and am a big big fan of the all-Italian wine list... read more

Paulie's is the 3rd best walk-up and order place inside the Loop according us us. It has good value and is great for a weekday meal.

Paulie's is my wife's favorite pasta restaurant. It's a no-nonsense walk-up service pasta restaurant, where you walk up fast-food style to order, but the pasta is really good. Honestly, if you order a full plate, you can probably split it with someone and walk away fully satisfied. Well prepared, very good pasta, and Texas sized portions as well. Don't forget... More

Paulie's is always pleasantly busy. The homemade pasta is delicious and the staff are very sensitive to allergies. We frequently drive across town to eat here. Delicious. Great selections of desserts and coffee, too.

I'm visiting from the UK again, and just wanted some good Italian food. This place was recommended to me, and I took my teenage son who is with me on this trip, as we both love Italian food. He had the rigatoni bolognese and I had the chicken parmesan. I tried the pasta and it was good, though I didn't... More

We love Paulies. The food and service are always great. You need to be prepared for a wait for the food and because it's so popular there is limited seating. They have a lovely wine bar next door so we go there and have a glass of wine while we wait. The food is really worth the wait.

We've done lunch and dinner at Paulie's and often bring our friends and family here when they're in town. I've had pastas, spinach salad and paninis (Pizzitola and Principe) here, and they've all been great. And they make great leftovers. The Principe panini may be my favorite. My husband loves the Bucatini Amatraciana pasta, but they will warn you that... More

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).
