Paolo’s Restaurant & Pizzeria (Pembroke Pines)
***** Paolo’s Restaurant & Pizzeria, 12111 Taft Street, Pembroke Pines, Florida 33026, (954) 431-0899.
Well…so much for my New Year’s resolution to drop 20 pounds—Got a terrific “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint for you, Paolo’s Restaurant & Pizzeria in Pembroke Pines.
Paolo’s has been around for something like 20 years. The joint’s menu is loaded with appetizers, pastas, hot/cold subs, pizzas, calzones meat/chicken/seafood entrees. Now–you know and I know, that there are more “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joints in South Florida- than there are Chins in a Chinese phonebook (credit: Soupy Sales)…and some are a whole lot better than others.
I am telling you, Paolo’s is right up there with the “whole lot better” crowd. A recent outing had me doing—delicious- eggplant parmigiana, veal marsala, shrimp marinara, chicken francese…special shout-out to a delicious large thin crusted pizza. As “expected”- Paolo’s has plenty of soup or salad/entree/pasta side/garlic rolls- deals. The most expensive dish on the menu is a seafood combination plate at $18.45—so nobody’s gonna go broke eating at this joint.
Just a heads-up…www.southfloridadines.com is currently running a $30 coupon for $15—so if you want to try Paolo’s and play the coupon “game”—there you go.
Paolo’s is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 4pm-10pm.
