Lovely italian restaurant, great food.

Lovely little italian restaurant. Ordered fettuccine carbonara in a main size and it was delicious! Big serving. Also ordered on our table the salmon risotto which was fabulous. Prices are very reasonable for the portion size and freshness. Service was attentive and quite quick considering we went... read more

good food, good service, family owned and run, which always helps as the service is friendly, it has a relax atmosphere, you must book as it is a very small dining room

Great pizza here, although I thought the thin crust I asked for was a little thicker than I normally have in NZ. We telephoned the order in and it was ready on time and the staff were very efficient and courteous. Definitely order again.

Sorry guys but you have missed the mark. My pizzas were tasteless and uninspiring. I had the BBQ chicken and Paesano.

Went here for a work function having enjoyed delicious meals with family in the past. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was fantastic, especially Nonna's gnocchi! The wine was great and inexpensive. All 23 of us had a great night. Thanks!

Have been hearing about Paesano for so long we decided to finally give it a try. It is only small and takeaways downstairs with a small restaurant upstairs so booking is a must if you want to guarantee a seat. Great Italian Menu for Pasta and Pizzas and is licensed, The Food is incredible. Great Value and we were really... More

We get pizza from here on Friday nights. Its the best. Very busy so phone ahead but well worth the wait. Happy staff as well. Nothing is too much trouble.

Maybe we got them on a bad night, but we didn't enjoy the pizza at all - gluggy, doughy bases and too much cheese. The prawns were microscopic. We only had takeaway so eating in might be better. We wouldn't recommend this place.

Hi Karen, So sorry you had a bad experience with our pizza. We endeavour to produce food that is of a very high standard, and it seems on this occasion we have let you down. No excused, but we have been training this week and perhaps that may where we have not met our usual benchmark. If its possible, we... More

We went here for dinner as somewhere we've often driven by and said 'we must try that'. Seated upstairs, was slightly disappointed that the ordered lemon, lime & bitters was a bottled pre-mix and not made at the bar. The Garlic pizza starter was fantastic with the crisp fresh crust I have come to expect from italian restauarants and disappeared... More

Three of us went here for dinner last night. Our table looked out onto the street where we could watch people go by as we talked. Service was friendly and fast. The pizzas and rosotto were delicious and big serves too. Topped off by a few glasses of wine and a citrus tart. Very happy, will go back.
