Had a coupon so checked it out for dinner. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife ordered the Chicken Parm. I must admit the chicken parm was delicious, but my meatballs left much to be desired, and I wasn't impressed with the pasta and sauce. The Caesar salad was decent but the garlic rolls were hard and seemed... More

We dined here many times when it was Lubrano's and were sad to see it closed. When it reopened under a new name with a revamped bar and seating area, we were so glad. We tried it out last night, and while menu is new and improved, all the old Italian classics are still there. This place still serves the... More

Never dined there when it was Lubrano's, but have frequented Paolo's On 54 several times for lunch and dinner since the opening. Have not been disappointed each visit, as the staff attends to your needs, the food is served hot, and cold drinks served cold! My wife and teenage daughters enjoy the chicken tenders, pizza slices, and chicken francese, while... More

Same place, same owners, same mediocre food with a new name, new paint job, and the addition of a bar. Had to wait about a 1/2 hour even with a reservation. Bar: Not only did they not have Dewar's Scotch, they didn't even know what it is. Not good way to emphasize the new bar and bar skills. No bread... More

The shuttle van driver from the hotel brought us to Paolo's because everything else was closed on Christmas eve. The restaurant was full, but we were able to be seated almost immediately. The waitstaff were excellent. They were knowledgeable, but not intrusive throughout the meal. The wife had the salmon salute and I had veal masala. Both dishes were excellent... More

This restaurant used to be Lubrano's but they have changed their name and up-scaled their menu items. They have a broad selection of Homemade Italian items including Pasta, Chicken, Seafood, Veal and good Pizzas. The quality seems to have improved even though it was pretty good previously. We had a very good waitress who helped to arrange some dishes that... More

I have been coming here since 1999 and have never had a bad meal or experience. Paul (the owner) does an amazing job in providing a well balanced Italian menu. My personal favorites are the steak stromboli and chicken francese. The pizza is very good too, which the kids love. Please try this place out - great for families and... More

Paolo's On 54, formerly Lubrano's, has a new name and bar, similar but better menu, better wine list, better pasta entrees AND, a biggie, FAR better service. Not that the service was so bad before, but now it's vastly improved with the barkeep's spouse serving tables. She was both fun and attentive. The Veal was tender and the pasta was... More

New renovations make for improved layout, add'l restroom & a bar. They've added some (small) tables out front which is fine for party of 4 or less, and will serve out there. We walked there from where we live & brought our dog. Waiter was friendly & brought some water out for our dog. Some menu items have changed, but... More

The new name is "Paolo's on 54" but run by the same great Team as before. Same seating capacity but new bar and has beer on tap and serving liquor. Our family has gone 3 times in the past 2 weeks and the food is better than ever! They worked very hard redoing it in nine days. I have had... More
