Prior to opening Paul's Italian American Restaurant in 1973, we were a small "sandwich kitchen" known as the Dutch Door. We started with just a few items on our menu and only 3 spaghetti bowls.
We got our start catering coffee, rolls, bagels and egg sandwiches to neighboring construction sites. From there our menu began to expand and we included pizza.
We were fortunate enough to have loyal customers who would come visit our restaurant for hours. At an early age our children became apart of our business and customers and employees alike; we all became life long friends.
In 1979 we had the opportunity to expand our restaurant and added more variety to our menu. We added salads, pasta, seafood and more. We strive to serve our customers quality food at reasonable prices in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
Without the loyalty of customers like you, we would not be where we are today. We would sincerely like to thank you for supporting and believing in us.

We would like to thank our loyal customers from years gone to the present, friends we have made over the years and to our family, and to those who have passed, our close friend, Patrick Cunningham and Vinny Burns, our favorite bartender and mentor. We especially would like to thank our children, Stacey, Andrew, Evan and Petrina, who have grown up in the business and gave their time unselfishly.
