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.
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'. ;-)
