Surprisingly good Italian food in a college town restaurant

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... read more

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

Had driven by many times when in Oxford. Always wondered what it was like. Stopped in on Saturday evening and was able to get a table. Dinner was wonderful. Great staff. Try the spinach and cheese ravioli.

Went with a large group where children sat together and adults sat together. Imagine my surprise when my under-10 son's individual bill was over $20. I asked why he didn't get the children's portion and she said she thought he was the same age as the others (all 16yo). Three of us (1 adult, 1 teen, and 1 child) charged... More

Went during the week so it wasn't overly crowded. Students were also on vacation which also helped as the place is typically packed. Wonderful lasagna i would recommend it to anyone. Wine prices are very reasonable (not the greatest selection but adequate).

It had been awhile, but had the chance to stop in again. As always, it's small, sometimes pretty loud and almost uncomfortably hot. The calamari app was ok...a little oily for my taste, but it's pan fried so to be expected at some level. The salads were ok, but the vinaigrette not as flavorful as I would have liked. Veal...
