We visited Paul's Pasta Shop on July 18 with our twin three year old daughters. We arrived right at six and found that we didn't have to wait which is a rarity in this area during tourist season. Everyone we have talked to just raves about this restaurant, so as locals, we thought we had better try it for ourselves.

The food was quite good. The girls had spaghetti with a bit of sauce, I had the meat lasagna and my husband had the spaghetti pie. We got small portions for everyone which was plenty. We actually brought home probably one small serving of the spaghetti since the girls don't eat much.

I only had two issues with the restaurant which cause me to rate it a four rather than five stars.

First, they do not have a true kids' menu. So, we ended up spending $13 on their meals and bringing home loads. We could have split one small, but there is a charge to do that, so we would have only saved $3.

Second, the service was not all that attentive. Our waitress took our order and then ignored us until she brought our food. It would have been nice to have drink refills and possibly some bread while we waited.

But, overall this is a great restaurant, and we will go back.

After reading reviews on this site, and wondering how I could have spent so much time in Groton, and never heard of Paul's Pasta, I wanted to give it a try.

I concur with the other reviewers. This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten in. Portions are plentiful, and the prices are reasonable for the high quality of the food. I just wish the menu weren't so limited.

The next day we returned to bring home a whole assortment of fresh pasta. We can't wait to return.

Pauls Pasta is a great local restaurant located along the Thames River. It is a restaurant loved by all locals! Great food at a great price. This is the only place in Groton we go to eat when we are in town. Its a unique and friendly family run place with fantastic Italian food. All pasta is made fresh to order. Ask to sit on the back deck over looking the water.
