22 USD FOR LOBSTER ROLL IN A CHILD SIZE HOT DOG BUN. If you are okay paying that kind of money, please go ahead. I felt ripped off. There is no way, they spruce up their price like this. And its not my first time...More

Pauli's has fast service and really good food. The lobster roll was fresh, good amount of mayo and there was substantial amount of lobster. The clam chowder had lots of clams and it was very flavourful.

This is the 2nd time I've been here and the warm lobster roll is still the best. They give you soooo much lobster and its soft and buttery and delish! I've heard people wait for hours for the Neptune place but these guys are great!

Stopped here based on the ratings ... we had the meatball and cheese sub and were delighted. The meatballs were tender with great flavor. It was fun eating at the window watching everyone walk by.

Not much to say here. I ordered the fish and chips and the fish was burnt. I was only in Boston a few days and it was a bummer to have a bad meal on my trip.

Lobster roll was as good as expected and prices were stunning!! Definitely I would recommend it! The only problem is the size....the dinning area was too small so probably you will have to wait or take it away.

We found this place through Yelp, and it had high ratings. It's a small deli shop in North End and we were delighted with our order. We had hamburger, fries and a vegetarian sandwich that were so tasty. Delicious! We highly recommend this place.

It's a small place- don't blink as you walk by or you'll miss it. Any discussion of the "best lobster roll" in the Northeast will engender a fierce argument. Pauli's needs to be included in any discussion of "best lobster roll". Pauli's lobster rolls are...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

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.
