Worthy for Regular Lunches

My lunch buddy and I return every couple of months. It's a comfortable and relaxing mostly-Italian food but enough standards for almost anybody's taste. Service is fairly good, although we usually sit at the bar and perhaps have to compete with the bar service for the tables. There are several good... read more

This was my first time eating breakfast at Paesanos. First off, they have a fairly good stuff on their menu. The pictures on the menu depicted rather huge servings. I ordered the Classic Breakfast. The serving was good enough to share. As a matter of fact, although it was very good, I was not able to eat more than half,... More

My wife and I went here for a night out without the kids, and I was pleasantly surprised. I expected a upper end place with lots of menu items I wouldn't eat, but I actually found myself choosing because a couple of different things. I ended up with the spaghetti carbonara, and it was amazing. I had never had bacon... More

I had heard good things about paesanos but it didn't live up to the hype. Came for a late lunch on a Monday and the restaurant was empty. Never sure if that is a good thing. They have a wonderful front patio but it was warm that day so we opted to dine inside. Ordered a steak salad. Not sure... More

Paesanos has great pizza, salad, and is a very nice atmosphere. The outside seating is comfortable year round too as they keep it heated in winter.

Outdoor seating seems like you're not in a shopping center. Relax on the patio on a not-so-warm evening with friends and family. Pizzas are great for sharing, Fried Polenta Fries are a must, wish they would bring back the Steamed Sake Clams (with kick).

We ordered the farmers and mediteranean salads - mediocre. Ordered the fried polenta fries - also mediocre. Server and busboy were great but doing double duty as bartender so service was slow on a Monday night and we had to remind them a couple of times for condiments. Wasn't a great experience overall and most likely would only return if... More

In a nice Strip Mall. Nice atmosphere. Good food. Not the best, but good. It was somewhat noisy in there, was hard to have a good conversation - with family. I'd go again, but would try other Italian restaurants first.

Extremely slow service on a Monday night. Food was above average but they appeared to be understaffed.

Great menu. I have eaten at Paesanos many times. We have had our family over to Paesanos and it is always a favorite. Fuji apple with gorgonzola cheese pizza was recommended to us by one of their excellent staff, and it has become a favorite. If there was one thing that they could improve is the wait staff. We have... More
