Opening Remarks -Paesanos was opened by Peter McAndrews and his partner Nathan Baynes after McAndrews grew tired of having to add “gusto” to other sandwich shop offerings. -Paesanos is located in the heart of Philly’s Italian Market, and has been regarded by many as having the city’s top Cheesesteak and Roast Pork. -Apparently, the folks at Food Network and CNN...

This place has a fierce reputation as a great sandwich provider. We had a mixed experience. We ordered a giardina sandwich and a tomato soup. Our other diners had a liveracci sandwich. The giardina was way too salty and while the eggplant was perfect, there was too much tomato paste, dominating the sandwich. The soup was actually terrible and we... More

Unique offerings! Conveniently we got to the Italian Mkt just before noon, so didn't have to wait too long... I had the tasty Gustaio - lamb sausage with roasted tomato and I believe a mint jelly with greens in a crispy wrap. MMmmgood tho a bit pricey and of course messy. Mr. had the Bolognese which I thought sounded like... More

Just finishing up my Paesano beef brisket sandwich. Absolutely incredible. Stopped in today with my daughter and they were out of their signature potatoes. No problem. They said if you can wait fifteen minutes we will make more. We did and they were worth the wait. Love this place.

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
