San Antonio is warm in winter. That's about it. The local Riverwalk passes for a tourist attraction. It's a River and you can Walk next to it. It's lined by restaurants generally hawking brown slop known as Mexican food. Paesanos is an Italian place. Eight of us went there recently for dinner. I ordered a steak. When I asked the... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant on the Riverwalk. My husband and I had the fruitti del mar on the recommendation of our waiter. It was excellent. Our waiter did an nice job of checking on us and making sure we were happy with our meals. We would definitely have dinner here again! Wonderful sidewalk setting on the Riverwalk!

I didn't feel like Paesano's lived up to other reviews. The "Giant Calamari" appetizer was served with two excellent sauces. The "Shrimp Paesano" was very good as usual, but the pasta was not even close to warm, it was sent back and then only came out luke-warm, it also had very little lemmon butter and garlic flavor. The "Sea Bass... More

Friday night on the San Antonio Riverwalk is busy. We made reservations for an outdoor table right on the walk the day before, and we were graciously accommodated by the helpful staff at Paesano's. Four of us ordered different meals, and each was a delight. The Fruitti de Mare pasta dish was outstanding with tasty fresh shrimp, scallops and garlicky... More

Went here in a Tuesday night and found the entire atmosphere great. The location is second to none on the San Antonio river walk. I would recommend this place just for the location. The food was ok, I had the fettuccini with chicken but it tasted a little under seasoned. Maybe a little more Parmesan would have helped. Their bread... More

Kirk was our server, orginally it seemed service started off slow. But he kept up our waters, and was a gentleman, with the way he spoke and moved about our table. The food was great for all 4 of us. I loved cheese ravioli! My BF really enjoyed his lasagna, his mom lived her fettuccine with crisp chicken breast and... More

We went to eat here on a weekend at night, we had to wait to be seated for more than one hour. We ordered the sampler we loved the calamari and the mozzarella cheese sticks and it was really good.

I ordered the salmon and it was awesome. A couple with us ordered it also and split it. It was way to much for me and left a lot of the delicious noodles. A little pricey but service was great, food was awesome, portions big, maybe not for a big eater and the atmosphere was perfect. It's the whole package... More

While visiting San Antonio, I enjoyed lunch here following a race. Our waiter was very pleasant and quick with requests, especially from my friend's 5-year-old. Nice selection of food with a twist on your usual Italian favorites. I had the fettuccini Gorgonzola with grilled chicken. The sauce was amazing! We enjoyed our lunch outside with views of the Riverwalk. Even... More
