Great Basic Italian

Brother-in law trapped in Topeka hospital and we needed something better than what you expect from the usual hospital cafeteria. Just headed west on tenth, passed-up several fast food spots and we were about to give up when we happened upon the restaurants center across from Gage Park . Worried... read more

You think you've had Italian food. You haven't until you have tasted the fresh specialties here. From being seated in a small, intimate dining room (one of three or four), to tasting the fresh, hot garlicky breadsticks, you are in for a treat. Even the prices are not expensive. Menu selections have a nice variety of chicken, seafood, veal and... More

Paisano's has to be the most romantic Italian restaurant around and the food is soooooo good! It's almost like taking a mini trip to Italy while you are there. Even when the restaurant is full you never fill pressured to hurry up so your table can be readied for another customer. It is truly the old world slow and relaxing... More

The restaurant is in a good location and for the most part the food is decent. The salad and breadsticks were tasty and they have Mexican Coke (my favorite). I ordered the mediterranean seafood pasta and asked for no red pepper (red pepper is too overpowering for a traditional med dish). They left the red pepper on and as usual... More

Had a mid-day meal on a Sunday with friends. The place was not crowded. The food was good and we enjoyed ourselves. Our server was fairly new and "over-shared" personal stuff. I imagine they'll get him trained.

The hostess & our server (Brian) were as welcoming at 8:45pm as they probably were when the doors opened that day---very warm & genuinely friendly. The Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin music combined w/the low lighting & table lamps really set the mood. However, the decor needs to be updated. The wallpaper borders are peeling, the table is scratched, &... More

Went over the lunch hour. They do have lunch specials. Call ahead for reservations. I am not a big fan of Italian food, but the food was great and so was the service.

If your looking for Excellent Italian cuisine, this is the place for you! Fresh breadsticks, awesome salad (lots of extras in it), and the entrée is to die for. Everything my friends, family and myself have ever had were excellent. Beats the chain Italian restaurant!
