We visited this restaurant twice over our weekend vacation to San Antonio. Our waiter, Thomas, gave us recommendations on our meal selection as well as outstanding service. its not the cheapest place in town, but the entrees are more than your typical Italian restaurant

Very Nice place for a sit down Italian Meal along the Riverwalk. The food was excellent and had very good, but not excellent service. Sat inside, but should have sat on the patio to really enjoy the atmosphere of Riverwalk.

Slow it down! Was served our entree almost before taking the first sip from our bottle of wine . . . this is so far from a true Italian experience where you get to enjoy the surroundings and atmosphere as part of your meal and not just getting greeted, seated, fed, and given the 'check' (bill) all within less than...

This is a great place for families or dates on the Riverwalk. I went with girlfriend and our children. It was great to find a spot where kids are happy and mommies are too!

Several associates joined me at my new favorite restaurant on the Riverwalk! We arrived on a cold, rainy evening, but chose to sit on the heated patio. We had a great view of the area and remained comfortable throughout. The gorgonzola pasta and spinach was one of the best pasta dishes I have had. Simple, yet full of flavor. The... More

If we get within an hour's drive of San Antonio we will go to this restaurant. Been going for more than ten years, Wish it was closer. Love the Shrimp Paesano and the MEDITERRANEAN Salad. Service can be sporadic but the food is worth the wait.

I used to go to the original Paesano's all the time. I no longer live in Texas but got the opportunity to visit Paesano's on the Riverwalk over the holidays. As expected, there was a long wait. It was the Riverwalk during the holidays after all. But, the host seemed to be oriented toward seating anyone who hovered over her.... More

We waited for a good 30-40 minutes when they told us it would only be 20; standing awkwardly by the bar the whole time. The food was average. They forgot about our soup and salad. When we saw him our waiter was nice, but service was definitely lacking. The atmosphere was nice, if you didn't think about all the people... More

I hadn't been here since I was a kid. We went for my best friend's 40th birthday party. There were 25 of us. I was absolutely amazed at how good the service was in a crowded restaurant for a group this size. Our waitress must be the best on the entire riverwalk. The food was as delicious as I remembered...

Enjoyed dinner after Christmas here. Tried one night, and the wait was 1 1/2 hours. Went back earlier the next night and got right in. Dishes were very tasty. Their Shrimp Paesano was delicious, their signature dish. Find it at river level next door to Hard Rock. Great menu.
