My family and I live in Manhattan and have eaten here many times over the past 16 years. When our three kids were in school, it was the chosen place to celebrate birthdays, and both our sons asked for their high school graduation dinners to be here. We've never had a bad meal here over the years. So recently, my... More

I absolutely love this place. I always get the fettuccine alfredo. Their salad and breadsticks are also delicious. All three of those are WAY WAY WAYYY better than Olive Garden. Hands down!

Easy to find location with plenty of parking. We were in town for a funeral and the restaurant arranged a table for 16 people with very short notice. They put us in a semi private room with a few other tables but they didn't seat anyone else in the room while we were there. The service was outstanding, we had... More

I must admit I was impressed by some of the reviews for this restaurant. After dining there I was not so impressed. Having huge portions does not assure you that the food is going to be impressive. It was just average. We are big fans of canollis and were so disappointed. We were served 2 small canollis per order but... More

Come on, Topeka, call this a pleasant dining experience? My husband and I went for dinner at 6:30 pm and the best thing we had there was the wine. First off, the hostess sat us at a booth which looked like 1 year-olds had just gotten up from- grated cheese all over the floor and peeling border on the wall.... More

This place was just amazing. The restaurant itself is a little worn but the food is to die for. Easily better than Olive Garden!

I love Italian food, and I've eaten it all over Kansas. I have to rate this place as the best! The service is excellent and the staff is good as accurately describing and selling their dishes.

My dad served in Italy during the Second World War. He fell in love with Italian food. Every week would travel to Kansas City to shop for the ingredients. Making the finest spaghetti dish from scratch. He has not been able to cook his famous meal for quite sometime. I took him to Paisoano's, ordering the spaghetti with meat sauce... More

This restaurant rivals the best Italian restaurants I've been too. Great flavor, large portions, and good atmosphere. One of the best local restaurants in Topeka. Don't miss out on this one. If on a weekend, call ahead for reservations as they fill up fast.

My wife and I visited Paisano's for lunch for the first time a couple weeks ago. Although looking at the menu it sounded very expensive, once we received our food we understood why. The portions are huge, along with never ending salad and breadsticks. I absolutely loved the breadsticks being very soft, however my wife preferred them to be a... More
