“Great place with great food!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

How can you go wrong with fresh made pasta... whole wheat available too! Paul's Pasta is a terrific lunch and dinner location along the Thames River in Groton, CT. As a local New Londoner, I wait for spring and fall to partake of their wonderful dishes, allowing the tourist their chance to sample some good food in the area. I take friends and relatives to Paul's when they visit , and I encourage everybody to stop by and enjoy their regular menu... if you can make it past the specials!

“Outstanding Food at great prices”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

From the outside this place doesn't look like much but the lines that form say
It all -- this is the best pasta ever. You can watch them cut your fresh pasta. Portions are huge; 2 sizes to choose from and smaller is still more than I can finish in one sitting. Get a spot on the porch when the weather is nice - great view of the river. My favorite? Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken Breast.

“My favorite restaurant in CT”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Paul's is terrific! Fresh pasta & tasty sauces at unbelievable prices. Expect a bit of a wait to be seated, but it's worth it. Highly recommend the lobster ravioli or the buffalo mac & cheese. If the weather is nice try to score a seat on the deck.

“Awesome Again!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Been to Paul's many times over the past 5 years and they never disappoint. Ordered take out tonight and for a Tuesday you would think they were the only place open in town. Very busy but my order was ready on time. Everything was great! Look forward to Paul's everytime I visit Groton area.
