V. Paul's offers a full menu of Italian favorites. Appetizers include selections such as: Bruschetta, Roasted Vegetables, Calamari, and Cheese Ravioli. Traditional Minestrone soup and a Ground Pork sausage soup, as well as several salad options are available to accompany your meal.

A few of the Italian classics you will find on the menu include: Fettuccini Alfredo, Lasagna Bolognese, Pomdoro, Parmigiana, and Marsala. Additionally, several meat and seafood based dishes round out the menu.

The Primavera, which included mushrooms, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and a garlic olive oil sauce, was a delicious vegetarian selection. The fact that they carried gluten-free noodles was a big bonus, however, offering a gluten-free bread in replace of the traditional bread and olive oil pre-meal would be a great add on to further please the growing number of gluten-free guests.

Overall the food was excellent, especially considering the affordable pricing and attractive ambiance.


Our waiter service was professional and efficient. On this particular occasion, the staff was training a new waiter, who did a fine job.


The dining area is very modern and appealing with big windows looking out into the downtown area. We were lucky enough to arrive early enough to get a window seat. V. Paul's feels like a classy Italian restaurant you would find in a major city, rather than a small town Italian restaurant.
