About
Fast-casual modern Italian diner + (Signature sandwiches/wraps, salads, pasta, hot entrées, appetizers, burgers, lobster rolls, breakfast all day)"I started working in the North End in my family’s food businesses when I was just eight years old. Back then, the North End was a neighborhood where everybody actually knew your name, and “freshness, quality and value” weren’t just trendy catch phrases—they were simply expected.Today, Pauli’s is based on that same philosophy. We believe you deserve food that’s always served wicked fresh, that always tastes crazy good and that doesn’t cost a lot of money.

Went with the Lobster roll and was not disappointed. The flavor was so sweet and good. The warmed bun was perfect and was heaping with lobster. The overall meal was iconic and wonderful. Lobster in Boston, a well reviewed restaurant and an exceptional meal. The...menu was filled with great options, but this is what I needed!More

Good but pricey lobster roll Went to Pauli’s for lunch. Take away only at times of COVID of course but despite this, warm and friendly welcome and the freshly made sandwich was delivered in a few minutes. Filled (overflowing even) with BIG chunks of lobster....Tasty and not drowned in a ton of sauce like other places do sometimes. On the less positive side, the bread roll could be better. Not soft enough and not much taste. In summary, a good place a good food but for 20 dollars a piece (including a bag of crisps), it is not a cheap deal.More

Pauli's has consistently been following all safety guidance during the pandemic, and because of this, we have kept coming back! Each time we pick up our takeout, all staff are wearing masks. Additionally, they have designed a system in which the takeout is placed on...a cart, and that cart is pushed towards you in order to maintain the 6-foot distance between staff and patrons. On top of the excellent safety standards, Pauli's offers a large menu of great comfort food. We have not been disappointed by any of the food at Pauli's and will continue to frequent it for takeout during the pandemic! The website is also super user-friendly for ordering!More

The eggplant plant sandwich tasted pre frozen, breading was thick and soggy, and not even hot...like room temperature and cold on the inside of the patty. If all y’all care about preparing well is the lobster roll then just remove the subpar items like you’re...eggplant and mozzarella sticks off the menu...the sticks were not good either, but they were hot at least.More

Made a stop by Paulie's because we saw they were top notch for lobster rolls. Got a hot and buttered roll and ate it outside in the rain and it was totally perfect and worth the money! Tons of lobster chunks and butter dripping all...over! Clam chowder was good as well! Would go out of my way to get another one, next time we visit. 🦞More

Was trying to go to the place next door but ended up here for our first meal in Boston. We all had the hot lobsta roll in butter. It was so good and ended up being the best of the several I had in our...short trip. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised such an unassuming place would be so good, but I was a little. I'd 100% recommend.More

I've had many lobster rolls in my life... but this one beats them all. It was so juicy and flavored and their garlic parmesean truffle fries are out of this world!!

Wow. Previous reviews are spot on. The lobster rolls with the buttery sauce are just delicious. We shared a couple between four of us but there was still plenty of juicy lobster. Clearly popular but we were able to get a seat. Would definitely return

Did a bunch of research on where to go for lobster rolls. Some places actually do a lobster salad in their roll and some places go with 6 ounces while others are more expensive than other places though I understand the "market price" aspect. Based...on all these metrics this lead me to Pauli's and we went twice including to take some back on the plane for our flight home. It is definitely worth going out of your way for their lobster rolls. Pauli's goes with 7 ounces for their standard roll but you can get double that amount if you want. The amount of lobster, the quality of the meat, the ratio of mayo, the toasted hot dog bun is near perfection. Yep you do pay a pretty penny for it but, really, the price is right compared to other places including those that use lobster salad in their rolls. The Utz brand of chips we got were not to our liking. Our second visit we also got a Roast Turkey Club on a braided roll and it was good but even though the lobster roll is more than twice the price of the Club sandwich I really feel the lobster roll is well worth it. I can't wait to return.More

GMA DEAL! We loved the lobster rolls... it was soooooo good, perfect pick me up for the family. I hope they stay in business. We had a great family dinner, like everyone said in other reviews they shipped the lobster with rolls and mayonnaise.
