Generally, this is a good local spot to get food - Tonight was not so. First of all, the temperature in the restaurant had to be in the 80s. We decided to go to the bar but it wasn't much better. Our shrimp and chicken scampi was very bland. Our male server spent more time talking to a young lady... More

I have to admit that I was dubious even after reading accolades for this restaurant. In Seneca? Oh my. We dined here for my husband's birthday while visiting our state's beautiful parks. I was astounded. The staff was amazing, especIally our waiter, Joseph. Ask for him! My husband and I both had the most delicious New York strips, worthy of... More

It seems that they're marketing themselves as a more expensive Italian restaurant with an extensive wine menu (which we didn't get). And the food we ordered was good & satisfying but not exceptional. I had an eggplant dish that was tasty layered Portobello, zucchini, breaded eggplant & spinach but was $17 where my husband had medley of 3 different typical... More

Staff enjoys their jobs! Very obvious! From veal to fish to eggplant stack....you cannot go wrong! I live in Atlanta and am disappointed when I have to drive through this area on a Monday and they are closed! You will not be disappointed!!

Never thought I could find authentic Italian food in the mountains of SC. I was wrong. Beautiful atmosphere with excellent food. The service was a little slow but it was wirth the wait. I was told the owner is from Brookyn and you can tell!! Highly recommend

Great food. Very tasty, but service was a little slow. We were a large group, but after adjusting for that, it was still a little slow. Again the food itself was well done and great. A good variety of dishes.

Nice pace, good people. If you want big money food- this isn't it. It's fallibly run and good. I recommend the lasagna- amazingly they use mozzarella

We always eat at Paesano's whenever we're in the area and we always have a wonderful meal. My husband craves the Blue and Black tortellini (it's a good thing Paesano's is 3 1/2 hours from home!) and I love the piccata dishes and fish specials. We found them by accident several years ago, but now make it a destination meal... More

This is the best restaurant in Seneca, SC. Not only that, it's one of the best restaurants anywhere. The quality of the food is fantastic, first and foremost. The tortellini black and blue is my favorite dish, and it's delicious every time, and big enough to share. On one visit, the special was balsamic marinated flank steak with mashed potatoes... More
