“Good food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

It's been a year or so since we went to Paulys, and visited last week with friends. Restaurant was apparently quite busy on the previous (Friday) night, but was empty when th six opf us showed up on Saturday night. Small, but good choice of items (they were out of their "Twin Tournedos" which have been excellent in the past. Had a very good piece of grilled tuna, and wife had Grouper Piccata, which was an off-menu item - excellent! Got an over-aged bottle of chardonnay (fresh from hi distributor that week!) which was immediately replaced - no questions asked. Place is nothing fancy, but Eric really knows how to cook good food, offer decent wines, and all at a very reasonable price. We understand they also do a very good lunch business.

I know good Italian food. This isn't it. Went there twice with a large group. Food arrived cold and is overpriced. The waitress yelled at me. I couldn't get a glass of water. Decor is awful. A waste of space and food.

“Wonderful Place!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Don't let the size of this place fool you; it's a small restaurant but a truly amazing place to eat. The food is fantastic and the menu features some unique combinations that make this a big step above your average Italian place.

“Good Italian Meal in St. Marys”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

My wife and I had dinner here one night during our stay in St. Marys. I would recommend eating at one of the seafood places, but if you're in the mood for a good Italian meal, go to Pauly's. Their menu offers the regular Italian fare with some additions. Our server was nice and gave us extra garlic bread. There is nothing special about the atmosphere. The inside dining area is pretty small, but there is an outdoor patio as well.

“Quick Bite”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

We got into St. Mary's rather late and stopped in here for Dinner. It was fast, cheap and pretty good. Nothing spectacular but we weren't looking for that either.
