The food was very good for standard dishes. Had Eggplant Parmesan over spaghetti noodles. The noodles were perfectly done - flavorful and tender. The eggplant was also as close to perfect as you can get. The wine list was decent, including by the glass selections. Kudos to the restaurant for handling a 20 plus business group with separate checks. They... More

Linguine not al dente with taro sauce that lacked taste. Worst dish ever tasted and worst "Italian" style food ever.

This is an ok italian restaurant right on the riverwalk. We ordered shrimp fettuccini and sesame tuna, I asked for no almonds and my order came out with almonds. The waiter was new and you could tell, the atmosphere was fine if you want to sit at the Riverwalk but my boyfriend said that nothing we ate there was better... More

My husband and I ate on the river walk yesterday expecting the usual tourist trap. However we were delightfully wrong, our server noticed us waiting at the host stand and greeted us as if he owned the restaurant. Immediately coming back with water he offered us what seem to be everything had they had behind the bar including their home... More

We got a lovely table down by the river. Our waiter was friendly, but I believe he was new to the area. My husband got the veal ravioli and loved it. I stuck with the cheese ravioli and it was good as well. We finished off dinner with the chocolate mousse dessert (WHICH WAS DIVINE). Food is on the pricey... More

Great service. Nice patio with fans, great view of Riverwalk. Shrimp Paesano was delicious. They also have reasonably priced Italian Red Wines.

Right on the Riverwalk, but not on the sidewalk. Really nice atmosphere. We sat in an open-air arbor type setting that was very pleasant. The food was good and well discribed. Wine was good and the waiter was great.

Tonight we had a wonderful dining experience at Paesano's on the Riverwalk. Our waiter, Rico, was OUTSTANDING in his knowledge of the menu and wine list, and he struck the perfect balance of attending to our needs without interrupting the flow of conversation among our party of six. The food was delicious. I will recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I would give this place 5 stars if service had been consistent during my 2 visits this week. It appears it's hit or miss though and the server can definitely make or break the meal. Our first visit was highlighted by a great server and we had a fabulous time, two nights later (we brought 3 more guests with us),... More
