We were greeted enthusiastically and agreed to a quick turn-around as tables were heavily booked. This suited us. We ordered pizza... More

I visited this restaurant as it was the only one near where I was staying: it was unprepossessing. I went in to what seemed to be a takeaway with a couple of tables, but I was told there was a restaurant upstairs. The restaurant was simple but stylishly furnished, the service was pleasant, and the food was excellent. I had... More

The shabby interior, high volume of noise amplified by crap selection of "music", poor table setting and most importantly poor quality food (pasta 75%, other ingredients sparse and previously frozen, not fresh) - overall not worth visiting even for a take away.

Not knowing Hobart very well, we decided the 1.5 km distance from our Collins St accomodation to Paesana would be easily walkable as suggest by Google Maps...Well the grunt up Patrick St was a challenge and the facts that: 1. Paesana was highly rated 2. We didn't have a reservation 3. It was Saturday night meant that there was tension... More

Have dined at this restaurant many times and keep returning for more. It has it all: Friendly staff, great atmosphere, amazing food - both pizza and pasta, is extremely well priced, fast efficient and fun service. I can't recommend highly enough....it is a must for all Hobart locals and tourists alike. Get along and enjoy the experience.

Wandered up to Paesano from our accommodation in Hobart and was treated to a fantastic pasta and gourmet pizza that I shared with my wife. We were so impressed that we came back and ate there again before we left Hobart.

Excellent food, great service. Very accommodating to a large booking with children. Too many things to choose from on the menu!

One of the better Italians I've been too recently, food and service recommended. Only downside was that there was there was no vegetarian option on the kids menu for my young vege daughter - said they would substitute a small risotto but they didn't charge kids menu price. Only overcharged by $10 but those sorts of things leave a sour... More

My apologies for the overcharge with your daughters meal. It is not our policy to substitute children's meals with adult portions and I can only apologise for the error made. I am so pleased to have your feedback regarding the vegetarian option for your daughter - In almost 13 years it has never been brought up with us before! All... More
