Swing by a beloved counter-service Italian cafe serving house-made pasta, pizza, famous cookies and more at Paulie’s Restaurant in Montrose.

Located on Westheimer in the heart of Montrose, this laid-back eatery is known for its cozy ambiance, attentive staff, ample seating, and of course, their mouth-watering Italian dishes.

After saving for years through their catering work, Bernard and Kathy Petronella opened Paulie’s Restaurant in 1998, named for their son, Paul.

The family institution eventually passed over to Paul Petronella in 2007, where he’s focused on delivering delicious dishes at the original location on Westheimer ever since.
