I hesitated writing this review as I am being selfish and don't want too many people to find this place! However, that would just be wrong -- to not share with others so they can experience this fine restaurant. My husband and I have been going here on a somewhat regular basis; we got tired of the chain Italian restaurants... More

My wife and I and another couple ate at Paese Mio on a recent Friday evening. The weather was pleasant and we sat outside. We did not have a reservation and our wait time was approximately 15 minutes during which time we were served fresh garlic knots and a free glass of wine by the owner. Two of us ordered... More

We found this place a few years ago when we were coming back from a trip and needed a placed to stop. We checked Tripadvisor and on the basis of reviews decided to stop in and were glad we did. This was our first chance to come back and happily nothing has changed. This small neighborhood gem is terrific. Staff... More

I am not quick to give an excellent rating, but this comes close - what drops it below the bar also adds to its charm and character, which is its unassuming exterior and interior. Not all restaurants need be 5 star to be excellent and it goes without saying that not all 5 star rated restaurants deserve the rating but... More

I have a group of friends who meet monthly for dinner and will go to a place when someone suggests a restaurant. This past dinner we went to Paese Mio, an Italian Restaurant. The restaurant is very busy, a lot of people picking up Pizza. Parking is sometimes a problem. They do have excellent garlic knots that are served while... More

We had a party of 12 for our son's first communion luncheon, and everyone in our party commented that the food was very good. The service was very good also. We do frequent Paese Mio and it is always a positive dining experience.

Small family owned Italian restaurant. Parking lot was packed at 7:30 pm on a Thursday in April, a good sign. No wait to be seated. I had the Pasta Primavera. Lots of fresh veggies: mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, eggplant, red and yellow peppers, broccoli and garlic, all in a nice light red sauce. Excellent! My spouse had the homemade cheese... More

We went to Paese Mio as a party of five in December. The weather was bad and we were looking for something closeby. The food was fantastic and they even had complimentary wine. The decor was quite nice, although maybe a little too much fake greenery throughout the restaurant, which is a total dust collector. The dining room is small... More

Amazing food but such horrible service :( My fiance and I go out to eat probably once a week but I never feel the need to write a negative review. This was our third time here and it was such a bad experience. We sat there for 20 minutes without any services waiting on our table. After finally saying something,... More

I love this place. The pizza has a great flavor and the sauce is perfect. Closer to real italian pizza than most places I have eaten at. It's family run and it shows. Everyone is very friendly and really cares about the experience that you have. In addition ot the pizza that we often take our the entrees are delicious... More
