This is my first, last, and sometimes just when I need to fill my craving stop every time I go to Philly. My new home is Paesano's. If they would rent me the room above the store I would eat there everyday of my stay. All the sandwiches at Paesano's are good from the o.g. Paesano my favorite with beef... More

The perfect place to have lunch in Philly's Italian Market. All of the Paesano's sandwiches are unique and interesting combinations - absolute works of art and incredibly tasty! Every one I've tried has been fabulous. One of these days, I'll try the Bolognese - which includes fried lasagne! - but it's so hard to resist my favourite ... the Gustaio... More

I love this place! My favorite is the Paesano but all of their sandwiches are top notch! I have a gluten intolerence leaving me few options when it comes to sandwich shops. I was beyond happy when I found out theat Paesano's offers gluten free bread!

Great sandwiches, mostly takeout crowd on New Years Day and that was a good thing because seating is minimal. Wishniak cherry soda on tap went well with Zawzeech sausage sandwich, the local folks had ordered Paesano sandwiches-brisket and eggs and that looked good too. Very busy guy taking orders, he said 12 minute wait and got it exactly right. Big... More

Encouraged by reports (including the recommendation from Anthony Bourdain's The Layover) we skipped the Pat/Geno's cheese steak showdown for this little sandwich shop abutting the Italian Market. We were not disappointed. We easily got beyond the zero atmosphere and few beverage options to the creative sandwich combinations. We were sorry to only be able to try two. I had a... More

I went based on TA opinions. Sandwiches were good, but not out of this world. We had the Paesano, Arista and Giardina, All very good. Out of the three, the Paesano was the best. Sandwiches were made on French bread, Bread did not fall apart and kept all ingredients together. These sandwiches do get soggy if not eaten quickly. Eat... More

We have tried the "popular" tourist restaurants on and around 9th street on several trips to Philly and for the most part have been very disappointed. NOT this time. My roasted eggplant sandwhich was the best roasted eggplant I have ever had. My husband's mixed Italian meat sub was very good. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The biggest reason... More

I had the Arista here: Roast Pork, Rabe, Sharp Provolone on a chewy Italian roll, yummilicious! I love Broccoli Rabe so the sauteed Rabe, lots of roast pork and sharp provolone set my taste buds on fire. Wish I had a chianti. If you are not a Rabe fan you may want to try their other sandwiches. This sandwich is... More

On my recent visit to Philly I wanted to find the best steak and cheese sandwich, but in my search for that I came across the many rave reviews for Paesano's. It's not steak and cheese but better. It turned out to be convenient for my ride on the historic #15 trolley route too, as it's just a couple of... More

Exploring the Italian Market with family and stopped in for sandwiches. Several of the group had the sausage sandwich which was very good. I ordered the roasted eggplant sandwich and it was heaven, one of the best I have ever eaten. The carmelized onions and peppers were cooked to perfection.
