The food was so good, very large portions, had to get to-go box. I got the chicken fried alfredo, it was simply amazing, will probably have again before trip home. You need to get there early, it is so good & popular, there will be a wait. But well well worth it!

Paul's Pasta has excellent pasta with a good friendly staff and reasonable prices. It is a little out of the way but well worth the trip! The only issue is that it is not wheelchair accessible.

We went with the family after I saw so many positive reviews. We were lucky enough to get a table on the deck. The server was friendly and quick even though they were very busy. My daughter ordered the chicken parm, which was great. I ordered the alfredo with was also good, but I think the parm was the better... More

Went with party of six and sat outside under awning overlooking the Thames river. Service was great and they are very attentive. Ordered both the mixed vegetables and shrimp appetizer for the table and they were both very good. I had the spaghetti pie and ordered the small portion which by the way was huge. It was very tasty and... More

We have been coming to the area of over 7 years. Normally, their food and service are outstanding and it shows since the restaurant is always packed. This time we ordered our food for pickup. We drove there at the appointed time and the food was ready for pickup. Unfortunately the food order was incorrect. The food that we received... More

We came by for an early dinner and were able to sit on the deck. We took the last parking spot but there is also on street parking. The staff was very nice and attentive. I had the lobster ravioli which was very heavy and filling and didn't have a lot of flavor. My husband had the carbonnaro which he... More
