Paul & Jimmy's Restaurant has been a landmark in the historic Gramercy Park neighborhood since 1950. The father and son tandem of Louis and Greg Azzollini continue to serve old-country-style Italian dishes, as well as, innovative specials prepared daily. All plates are crafted with the freshest of ingredients, many sourced locally from the farmers market. Louis always welcomes you as part of the family and Chef Greg makes sure each dish would proudly be served to "Nonna."

This is a classic Italian restaurant that makes you feel right at home when you walk in. Amazing service and fantastic food make it an overall wonderful dining experience for all ages. The aperol margarita is a must as is the gnocci. We will definitely be back!

This restaurant is a regular with our family - we have been coming to Paul & Jimmy's for a long time and we still love everything about it. A neighborhood gem! Whenever we have guests from the area or out of the town this is where they want to go for lunch or dinner.

The food was delicious, the service was good, my only suggestion would be to have a few more lower priced wines - it is definitely possible!

It’s my favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is Italian “great” because of the talented chef, Greg, who is also handsome. The restaurant is a family owned and operated restaurant and the family, especially Louis, makes me always feel special. There is a genuine warm atmosphere from start to finish. I highly recommend Paul & Jimmys as the place to go whether it’s a quiet dinner or special occasion

Mysteriously, in a very culinarily competitive city, this establishment has excellent reviews. As a result, my family and I dined there a few nights ago and were seriously underwhelmed. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the rather lovely but very simple food, decor and service. But don’t go expecting excellence of any kind. If average is what you’re after, you’ll be satisfied.

We went on a quiet Monday night. The food was excellent. I had the hot appetizer plate and veal saltimbocca. My friend had the fried calamari and salmon with asparagus. But there were so many other wonderful choices which were very tempting so we’ll have to go back for more. The service was perfection. The atmosphere is more old world with linen tablecloths and napkins and candles. It can very easily become your go to place for a casual dinner with friends or for a special occasion. You will leave feeling well fed and comfortable.
