Have eaten there 3 or 4 times and I always feel the same: it's a average restaurant in a small college town. Smaller inside than the outside would hint at, consequently making a intimate or even fairly quiet dinner difficult. The food is ok but somewhat overpriced. It has a nice little bar and the bartender was a nice guy

You will definitely be disappointed if you believe the majority of the reviews here. I have given this restaurant 5 chances to win my business and they have blown it every single time. The food is mediocre at best - veal parmigiano was over-cooked, same for lasagna. Calamari tasted like it came right out of the freezer and into the... More

When visiting Oxford this past weekend with my field hockey team, we were faced with the question of where to eat with a large group. We tried Paesano's carry out for 25 people and it was truly amazing. I had the chicken parmigiana and it had tho be in my Top 5 chix parm experiences! Everyone in our group was... More

We found this place by accident, but if you are in Oxford to visit your college student stop in. A little pricey but our waitress was very nice and the food was great!!!! Might have to make a reservation if you go after five pm. Four of us 100.00 no alcohol. Very nice. Been going to Oxford for four years... More

Had dinner there once, very nice meal. Small but very good menu. Nice selection in wine. Reasonably priced.

We all love this restaurant, but try to go through the week as it is typically very crowded on the weekends. Often we will order food to go for take out, which includes our entree, salad and bread. They package it well and it is still great once we get home (15-20 minute drive). We've eaten in as a family,... More

This is a small little restaurant that makes up for its lack of atmosphere with very good Italian food. Our family of four enjoyed our meal very much though we found it somewhat overpriced for what it was. The tables are jammed tightly together in both rooms. Service was friendly if not wildly attentive. Would recommend the lasagna and the... More

The great garlic smell when you walk in the door will have you wanting to stay. We got there at 5:00 when they opened and it was already full. They told us next seating was at 6:30 so they took are name and told us to come back then. The service was very friendly and the food was great. We... More

This is the first time I've ever re-reviewed a restaurant. Since my last review, I've had an opportunity to dine here again, and I feel that it is only fair that I share the low-down on my updated opinion. The food is unquestionably good. Since my last review, I've gotten off the scampi train and tried something new: the steak.... More
