Another Visit, another very good meal

Went to Paesano's for the second time and once again was very impressed. With the exception of the Caesar salad, which I thought was less than great (but my wife thought was very good), the food was excellent. The bread is good and I had one of the specials (shrimp and lobster pasta, which was just... read more

We experienced great service, tasty pasta & lasagna. Our salads were fresh & crunchy. The entrees were hot & delicious-moderately priced.

We've sampled Paesano's on several occasions. Appreciating the dearth of better Oxford restaurants, Paesano's ranks up there with the best. However, relative to other Italian restaurants in the greater vicinity, Paesano's is marginally competitive. Atmosphere is congested and noisy. Table spacing is tight. Service is average as are most entree's. All in all, Paesano's represents an average to slightly below... More

Love this cozy, family owned and run restaurant for their rich sauces and pasta cooked to perfection. This place is always packed!

We ate at Paesano's this past weekend and were impressed with the food. Tucked away off the beaten path, this restaurant serves a very good variety of well-prepared and favorite Italian dishes. The chicken Parmesan is everything you'd expect but the story was the spinach and cheese ravioli with vodka sauce.

We ate here with a group of seven. I had the Funghi alla Pesto, a Caesar salad, and glass of Merlot. The service was pretty good and the prices were quite reasonable ($25 without the tip). Everyone in our group enjoyed the food and one thought it was better than our previous meal in Oxford which cost twice as much.... More

Had reservations on a busy Friday night and were seated right away. The restaurant is cozy and dress is casual. Service was very efficient. Menu is the usual Italian fare. There are a variety of sauces matched to your choice of pastas. You can also choose what type of meat or vegetable to add to your pasta. Traditional Italian dishes... More

Having dined in various college towns on multiple occasions, we've found it can be extremely difficult to find high quality food...at any price! Paesano's Pasta House is one the rare exceptions to this. The food is very good quality, the service was good and all of this came at a very reasonable price. The only downside is that the seating...

I usually go in a group and we always get great service. They have the best Italian food around... I work in a local bank in Oxford and It is the first place we think of for our Chritmas party. Great staff and owners

Oxford has a lot of great little bars and restaurants like any college town, but Paesano's beats them all. This cozy Italian restaurant just off Miami's campus has the best food and service in town. Definitely the best place to bring parents and visitors. Tips: Try the Rose sauce on your pasta, life changing. Reservations are a must, but they... More
