Go early to get your entree for half price

A couple of coworkers and I had lunch there yesterday. It was busy, but not crowded. The waitstaff was efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. We arrived before 11:30 a.m., because we knew that if you're seated before that time, your entrees are half-priced! Yay! So I enjoyed the penne Abruzzi... read more

The aroma as you walk in the door is incredible! This is one of the best Italian restaurants I've had the pleasure of eating at. There isn't anything I've had that wasn't outstanding. Awesome pizza that we'll drive an hour to get. The staff has always been friendly and the prices are very reasonable. If you're in the area, do... More

We were there with our son & his girlfriend. I had chicken piccata with a side of fettuccine with a Alfredo sauce. The fettuccine was very good - the chicken was a sad. Greasy, falling apart - I make this at home & it is an easy dish to sauté to a golden color with a lemon/caper sauce. This came... More

This is a treasure find in Topeka. We stopped here for lunch. This is an outstanding Italian restaurant. The sauce is definitely not from a jar or a can. We had Erin as our server and she was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone coming though the area. I had the Lasagna and my wife had the... More

On a road trip and stopped here based on all the positive Trip Advisor reviews. Nice old school Italian atmosphere, but a little worn at the edges. Service was prompt and efficient, bottomless salad and bread sticks ala Olive Garden. We ordered chicken parm-good not great, fettuccine carbonara- fair at best, and veal piccata-simply awful. The veal was tough as... More

Paisano's is where we go for Italian, and we go as often as we can because it is Sooooo Goooood! My husband orders the Chicken Spiedini Diavolo and I order Penne with Bolognese. Their salad is full of goodies and the bread sticks are usually just out of the oven. If they have a dessert special on the blackboard -... More
