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."

The frutti de fare appetizer was very fresh and delicious, followed by the classic creamy burrata! We also thoroughly enjoyed our main pasta entrees very much! All of the staff was friendly and courteous. We even had a chance to meet the owner! A fantastic experience overall!

Paul & Jimmy’s is the perfect spot to enjoy a superb Italian-American meal. You can’t go wrong here! Everything is fresh, incredibly tasty, and always cooked on point. This is a top spot for us and we always look forward to our next visit!

A gem of a local restaurant. A great family owned vibe and the chef is the owner's son. The restaurant has been there for 50 years and my wife's family who lived nearby used to go there regularly. I am surprised I never knew of the place although I have often eaten in the area. I will definitely use this place for dinner with friends and family.

Very good food & service. The food quality is consistently good. The ownership sets a very professional tone and everyone that works there follows that lead.

Food was good. Service could use a little help. Seemed to have waited some time before our order was taken and then again when we waited for the bill.

Great local place with excellent service. Loved the appetizer selection that is on the chalkboard when you walk in. Fantastic marinara sauce! Now I know why there were jars for sale near the hostess table. On the critical side: meatballs needed breadcrumbs and seasoning. The carbonara had way too much cream and not enough pancetta. I would return but stick to menu items that have the excellent red sauce!

Why didn’t I get points for December 14,2019?
It was so crowded and noisy that I should get double points for putting up with the worst meal we ever had in Paul and jimmy’s.
Please credit the points.Thank you

The food was terrific, as was the service. I’m not sure I would return at prime time as the noise level was deafening. I could hardly hear the person sitting next to me let alone the one across the table.

I will consider returning either earlier or later but not at 8 pm.

The food and the service both were excellent, as usual. Unfortunately, the noise level became uncomfortably high. Next time, we'll go earlier and hope for a quieter experience.

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.
