“Look forward to going back”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Good, simple Italian food. Nice portions for the money, fresh and tasty. Great neighborhood restaurant. At 8 people were lined up at the counter for dinner. Paulie's is a order at the counter restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful.

“One of the better places in Houston”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Paulies is a casual lunch/dinner cafe-like relaxed place. The food is definitely more 'real' tasting than most of the places I have eaten in Houston. Paulies has different portion sizes to choose from which is great and the selection of flavoured waters are brilliant (my particular favourite is the lemon and ginger). I had the pesto pasta pesto the other day which was very over salted. I do find that the pastas have a slightly artificially-produced like taste (i think they maybe could use more fresh ingredients) but as I say this is definitely one of the better healthier options in Houston. The staff are friendly and helpfull.

“Decent lunch place but a little casual for dinner.”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Bf and I have been in search for a good Italian place in Houston for a long time. Tried out Paulies and it was pretty good. I loved the gazpacho! Delicious!!! My chicken parm was standard fare but the bf left hungry. Had to go find a snack later.

“Our favorite place to have lunch or dinner”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Found this place by accident and make it a point to visit every time we are near Houston. Cucumber water, fantastic dishes, and eclectic atmosphere are enchanting. Love it for dinner or lunch. Sadly, they are closed Sundays. 1834 Westheimer road Houston TX 77098
