Sat at the bar waiting for our friends and the bartender was very engaging. Gave a couple of drinks to taste and entertained us with his stories! Food was great, service was great. Finished dinner and returned for more drinks and conversation at the bar! Will go there again!

We had dinner on Sunday around 7pm and it was delicious. My two and four year olds loved their food. It was delicious and prices were good.

I was here for dinner on a thursday night, as I was alone on this trip. I got seated right away in a corner table off the main dining area. My waiter came to get my order right when seated. I had been here before a few years ago but didn't send in my review. Thought I would try this... More

I try to eat at Paesano's every time I go to San Antonio. The food is consistently good and the service a step up from a lot of the Riverwalk restaurants.

One of my favorite places to eat on the Riverwalk, Our party went early on Sunday evening and there was no wait and it was quiet inside seated near a window. I had a chicken pasta with a creamy pesto sauce that was outstanding. Way too big to eat there and was just as good as a leftover. Love their... More

Having been in the restaurant business as an owner and in management, there was one axiom I drilled into the wait staff. A good server can save a substandard meal experience while a bad server can ruin a perfect meal. Luckily during our visit to Paesanos our server was excellent in the old school style of restaurant service. His name... More

Saturday night dinner was wonderful at Paesano's on the River. We were seated at a nice corner table inside near the kitchen. We enjoyed the special shrimp as an appetizer, large, tender shrimp filled with fragrance of lemon in a light creamy sauce...simply delicious. We ordered traditional Italian meals - Eggplant Parm, spaghetti with meat sauce and my daughter had... More

Husband and I with are 3 kids went because we had a coupon. The food did taste good it's just very pRicey. The service is slow even to just get drink refills. The dessert was really good that's what the coupon was for.

We had been warned about the restaurants on the Riverwalk - and now we know why. The service was very good and friendly but the food is well below average. Worse I think the staff know. I didn't eat my pasta, and it was cleared without question. Clearly this is not unusual. I could go into detail but its not... More

It's hard to weed out good and bad restaurants from such a touristy area. By the time we got to the area, we were starving so we just picked this place. The over powering fried calamari smell in the restaurant should have been our first clue to not dine here. The second clue was the amount of time it took... More
