Description: Fast-casual modern Italian diner + (Signature sandwiches/wraps, salads, pasta, hot entrées, appetizers, burgers, lobster rolls, breakfast all day)"I started working in the North End in my family’s food businesses when I was just eight years old. Back then, the North End was a neighborhood where everybody actually knew your name, and “freshness, quality and value” weren’t just trendy catch phrases—they were simply expected.Today, Pauli’s is based on that same philosophy. We believe you deserve food that’s always served wicked fresh, that always tastes crazy good and that doesn’t cost a lot of money.

Good food, fresh lobsta, and really crisp fries :) The clam chowda is not the best I've eaten, but still really nice. Had a good time, very good!

We randomly found Pauli's while searching for somewhere to eat before going to TD Garden. While it's not an elegant restaurant, it's the perfect spot to hang out and eat a delicious sub or salad or italian food. You can do takeout too! The prices were very reasonable and the portions were large. There is something for everyone- there wasn't... More

Bumped into a guy whilst walking to the North End who said we must visit Pauli's one of the last true Italian diners in the area. We were looking for somewhere before going to see Boston College football. The crowd was a mixture of locals, college grads, and toursits ( us). Food was just what you wanted, great value and...

Stopped by Paulie's for lunch because we heard that the Lobster Rolls were excellent. We were not disappointed. The price was very reasonable and they give you large amount of lobster on each sandwich. They have a very big menu if you don't care for seafood. There is something here for everyone. I highly recommend Paulie's.

Lobster Rolls tossed in butter are excellent and a good deal since they're half the price of Neptune's (next door).

So, perhaps by custom, the concierge at my North End hotel recommended Neptune's on Salem Street for lobster. A good recommendation, I guess, but it was too crowded when I got there. So, I leave and walk a few steps and stumble upon Pauli's. Lucky me. I had the best lobster role at this sandwich shop. And, I wouldn't be... More

We have been to Pauli's many times, and the food is consistently good. The Lobster rolls are every bit as good as the one's next door for many dollars less.

Stopped by Pauli's as we were walking the Freedom Trail. Tried the lobster sub, lobster grilled cheese and a fish sandwich. They were all very good but we agreed that the lobster grilled cheese was the best as the grilled cheese really brought out the flavor of the lobster meat. For the sub, there was plenty of lobster meat, not... More

Pauli's has lots to choose from on the breakfast menu. I had an omelet and my husband had French toast. Both were very good and the staff were super friendly!

Finally tried Pauli's after a colleague said that he was going to get lunch there. First time was a steak and cheese sub. Wonderful, tasty and good sized portion! Second time I went was to try the much talked about Lobster roll. It was fantastic! A hearty portion of chunky lobster meat with just the right amount of mayo and... More
