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.

Was trying to go to the place next door but ended up here for our first meal in Boston. We all had the hot lobsta roll in butter. It was so good and ended up being the best of the several I had in our...short trip. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised such an unassuming place would be so good, but I was a little. I'd 100% recommend.More

I've had many lobster rolls in my life... but this one beats them all. It was so juicy and flavored and their garlic parmesean truffle fries are out of this world!!

Wow. Previous reviews are spot on. The lobster rolls with the buttery sauce are just delicious. We shared a couple between four of us but there was still plenty of juicy lobster. Clearly popular but we were able to get a seat. Would definitely return

Did a bunch of research on where to go for lobster rolls. Some places actually do a lobster salad in their roll and some places go with 6 ounces while others are more expensive than other places though I understand the "market price" aspect. Based...on all these metrics this lead me to Pauli's and we went twice including to take some back on the plane for our flight home. It is definitely worth going out of your way for their lobster rolls. Pauli's goes with 7 ounces for their standard roll but you can get double that amount if you want. The amount of lobster, the quality of the meat, the ratio of mayo, the toasted hot dog bun is near perfection. Yep you do pay a pretty penny for it but, really, the price is right compared to other places including those that use lobster salad in their rolls. The Utz brand of chips we got were not to our liking. Our second visit we also got a Roast Turkey Club on a braided roll and it was good but even though the lobster roll is more than twice the price of the Club sandwich I really feel the lobster roll is well worth it. I can't wait to return.More

GMA DEAL! We loved the lobster rolls... it was soooooo good, perfect pick me up for the family. I hope they stay in business. We had a great family dinner, like everyone said in other reviews they shipped the lobster with rolls and mayonnaise.

I ordered the lobster roll kit after seeing it on Good Morning America. All is can say is WOW! Everyone that tasted one had the same reaction. I hope Pauli's continues to ship these kits in the future. I will definitely be a loyal customer...from afar.More

I took my daughter there mid-afternoon based on other recommendations - so glad I did! It was her first lobster roll and we shared it to not spoil our dinner. Chunks of lobster, not too much mayonnaise (I hate when restaurants use too much) and...we loved every bite! A must try when in the North End!More

We were going to a concert at the Garden so we compromised by parking at 75 State (very good security and reasonable rates). An easy stroll to Pauli’s, then to the Garden, and back to the garage. It’s an easy out to 93... More
