Chock-full of recipes, photos, and even guidance for folks who want to open their own restaurant, Paulie’s: Classic Italian Cooking in the Heart of Houston’s Montrose District deserves a place on your shelf.

If you’ve never dined at Paulie’s, put it at the top of your list. Housemade pastas, fresh ingredients, and family recipes launch this counter-service eatery into the pantheon of Houston’s best dining options.

“The cookbook commemorates 20 years in business,” Paul Petronella, Paulie’s owner and book author, told Houston Hotel Magazine. “It is a storybook for people to get a behind-the-scenes look at Paulie’s and other family restaurants. It’s also a guide to newcomers who want to open a restaurant, offering insight on what to expect.”

Creating the book and making it come to life has been a long process, and I’m excited to finally share it with the community and the world.
-Paul Petronella, Paulie’s owner and cookbook author
