Have been several times. When you get a good server, everything seems to go very well. Food is always exceptional.

I would rate this as one of the best restaurants in the state. The dishes ,drinks everything are just awesome. If you want to taste it just go and would never regret for the money you pay.

Food wasn't the best... bread sticks were good but slightly soggy. Salad was tasty. Our server was funny and and definitely the highlight of the lunch. In no rush to return. But maybe i just ordered the wrong thing. I had the Carbonara and added a chicken breast.

There are two ways to handle Paisano's. What it is versus what it USED to be or what it is versus what else is available in Topeka. Compared to what it USED to be - it's a step backwards. Perhaps two. The service isn't as sharp or as friendly. The food - while still good - doesn't come close to... More

We've enjoyed Paisano's on several occasions. We've even taken our entire office staff - 18 people - and their kids - for a party! The food is good. The service too. If you're ready for Italian food - not from a chain restaurant - check out Paisano's!

Close to as authentic as you will get in East Central Kansas. Food was impeccable with exceptional service. Priced very reasonably too. Will definitely visit again when back in Kansas.

Simply heaven no matter what I order! From beginning salad to ending desert this is by far one of Topeka's best restaurants!

Three of us had a late dinner. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the lasagna which had many layers. It was as good as any lasagna I have ever eaten. The breadsticks and salad were good and the atmosphere was nice.

This is a place with real Italian. Everything I have had there is delicious. I especially enjoy the carbonara. The fettuccini is wonderful as well as the lasagna. It is decorated "old Italian". It is a great place to take the family, but also romantic for couples.
