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.

Good wraps and subs

Stopped in for a quick dinner to go. Lots to chose from and staff is very pleasant. Ordered a Tuscan Wheat wrap and a Prosciutto Classico sub - both very substantial. Very reasonable prices for the amount of food you get.

Loved the lobster roll with butter on it. We went here twice. The second time was to go and we ate it on the plane home. Can't wait to go back. We tried lobster rolls at 4 different restaurants and this was the best! Tons of sweet lobster.

$15~ lobster roll, opt for grilled cheese lobster if you love it hot and cheesy. Also, BEST CLAM CHOWDER I've ever had! Totally worth it! Paul's friendly, and gave us recommendations to other great places to dine at north end!

My husband and I were celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary, I wanted to go to Boston one of my favorite cities. I had never been to the north end so I was excited to walk around and experience all the sights and smells of this beautiful area! We woke up late and missed breakfast at the hotel so we figured...

What a great place. Fantastic, good fresh food. Lobster rolls? Come hungry. The rolls are loaded with claw meat. Delicately prepared and melt in your melt. Exceptional clam chowder. Gigantic Sandwiches. Sure, you order at a counter and pick it up and eat with plastic utensils. Who cares? For food this good and this inexpensive, it is a MUST SEE... More

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).
