Good Basic Italian/Greek food

This is a very good stop for lunch or a casual dinner. Service is prompt and efficient and the food is well prepared and good value for money. Our favorites include Stuffed shells and the Giro sandwiches (an excellent lunch choice). Lunch times are generally busy but the evenings , at least when we... read more

After an 'interesting' journey on the Freeway I met my colleagues at Paisanos for lunch, we were given a friendly welcome and an open choice of tables. The beautifully finished wooden furnishings in the restaurant give it a classic setting. We had the the Calimari starter which was lightly battered, fresh and tasty. As a new experience I opted for... More

My colleagues and I always eat at least one meal here while in town on business. Great little Italian / Greek restaurant. On this visit we all had pasta dishes. I chose the lasagna, which never disappoints. Maybe we are lucky, but we love this place. Excellent food, great service and prices that don't break the bank.

We have eaten here before and the food was good. This is a self-seating restaurant with no hostess (cost savings?). After being ignored by servers at adjacent tables, I walked to the center of the restaurant and finally spoke with a server who was setting up a table, requesting that a server be sent to our table. With no response... More

Have been to this place ten or so times. My wife always gets the pizza and loves it. I usually get the Greek combo (the pork souvlaki is very good). However, this time it was like an episode of Kitchen Nightmares wherein the lady owner had an offended meltdown because my Wife said the pizza was not good this time.... More

We've been eating here for several years. The food and service is always great. Most of the time we get our plates to go and have movie night at home. 😄

We tried Paisanos for the first time Saturday afternoon. What a pleasant experience. We had the calamari as a starter. This was good. I had lasagna and my wife stuffed shells. These come with a salad and garlic bread. Both dishes were very good as were the salads and bread. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked good! The wait... More

Food was amazing and service was great. Portions were enormous! Also tried the steak and cheese and being from near Philly thought it was amazing.

This is an average eatery, the spaghetti is usually good, my fiance is usually pleased with the calzones. It can be a little pricey for the amount of food in portion sizes. The side salad is way too small.
