“Unexpected Italian Treasure in the Sticks”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

My wife & I were on what I call a 'Family Duty Trip'. We were helping one of our nephews get moved in and settled at Rensselaer Poly-Tech in Troy, and we found Paul's Pizza by chance. This dining establishment is what I would definitely identify as "out in the sticks". However, when staying in the area, or as a 'meal pit stop', this place works great. It's within approx. 5 minutes (or less) off of NY TRWY-87, & it is easy to locate.

Dining Environment:
Is what you would hope to find, sort of a cozy feeling due to all of the interior wood work.

This was the first time we had ever eaten at this business. We had a friendly young lady as our waitress. She was very friendly, kind about sharing the her thoughts on the menu, and smiled a lot. Let's face it, it is always much easier to win over customers with a smile.

Our appetizer was Calamari. This was definitely not a boring dish due to the spices, and method it was prepared and cooked. Our two entrees, were a Calzone and a Panini. The Calzone was hot, crisp but not burnt, and plenty of the expected interior treasures to savor. My wife expressed that she felt her Panini tasted "fantastic", which surprised me because its normally tough to get her to brag on any dish of this type.

Portion / Serving Size:
The portion of the Entrees are LARGE, even for an average to large person, it is definitely more than enough to fill you up.

For those out there dieting, unless you have the will power to stick to a salad, or eating a small portion, then this dining location is probably not be 'the best meal choice'. Mainly due to calorie count of dishes described above. However, if you are looking for some great food to reward yourself for hitting weight targets on occasion, this would definitely 'hit the spot'. ;-)

“Close by”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We live less than a half mile from Pauls Pizza. We enjoy the free delivery. The dinners are all good. The pizza is average.. At best. The food is consistent but over priced. Wide menu selection with kids menu too

“Who could guess?”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

In a tiny strip mall at a four corner road in a small 8000 people town, there is this local joint. It was the only decent thing in town it seems. It is a place filled with locals that night except for the two of us most probably.

What a surprise despite the noise and the music: the pizza was far better than our expectation. The Meat Lovers one was simply delicious, thin and crispy crust, generous filling and perfect size for two and Cheyenne, our waitress, was so special, so professionnal and such a delightful person.

Make a detour and find the spot.

“Good Pizza, Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This little pizza joint is a staple in Coxsackie. It's where my family and friends take out of town guests, order for a late night, or go for a bite when they want to eat closer to home. Their food is quite good, and their pizza is rather delicious. However, it is a little pricey, and for food that is good and not fantastic. The atmosphere is great, but I think it eludes to why the prices are so high. They're trying to be that five-star pizzeria, or at least a little more extravagant than they are. This is still a great place to stop in if you have the money to spend. Personally, nine times out of ten, I go elsewhere to save money and still get good quality food.
