I usually don't write bad reviews unless they are really warranted, like getting 3 strikes at a restaurant. We went to Paul's on a busy mother's day. The staff was overwhelmed and it showed. While the food was good, the service was less than spectacular....More

The service and dinners were fabulous. Took home some habanero pasta to make with scrimp the following night and it was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

My son and I were in the area visiting colleges and we came across Paul's Pasta Shop.! Wow! Home made pasta, fresh sauce and great prices. A gem of a find!

Paul's pasta also caters and sells fresh uncooked pasta. I loved the lobster ravioli and the Buffalo Mac and cheese. I did not like the lasagna as much, but it was not inedible, I just didn't love it!

Went here with a friend on Wednesday night. We only get down there once or twice a year and it is always a treat. She had the spaghetti pie which was huge and I had the chicken parm which filled the plate. Best chicken parm...More
