Great food great prices

If you get there early the food is great if it's later expect a wait. The food is pretty good was a little bland this weekend but not bad.

Some of the best Italian food around. I've hosted business dinners for larger groups here as well as taken my wife for a romantic evening while in San Antonio. Right on the riverwalk, Paesano's has highly professional, trained staff. The kitchen never disappoints. Great wine list. My favorite meal? Shrimp Paesano.

I'm from out-of-state, and visiting San Antonio, to help a friend find an apartment. I checked the ratings and wanted Italian, and wasn't disappointed. This restaurant is on the Riverwalk, and there is indoor and outdoor seating. It was a quieter evening with school starting tomorrow, otherwise I would make reservations. Our server, was Gary and he was FANTASTIC!!! I... More

We came as a mid-week late night meal with kids and this place was a nice change from the typical Tex-Mex food along the Riverwalk. I learned that they make their own homemade Limoncello...yumm!!! Service was great and attentive...only reason I couldn't give a 5 star is that I'm from NYC and have eaten in Little Italy and Bensonhurst.

Paesano's is located right on the riverwalk. We only went once, only because is was a little pricey and we're trying to budget a little, otherwise we would have gone back for an additional meal. I had the peach sangria and fettuccine Alfredo. Very good meal, our server Bekim was very friendly and accommodating and made the visit that more... More

Only complaint is the calamari .. Tastes and looks like scallops not my typical calamari. But overall food and atmosphere were great.

This was a great restaurant on the Riverwalk. Each entree had big portions and the service was great. They had some really great wines. We ordered the appetizer where you could sample 3. We had the Paesano's shrimp (being from Louisiana, these weren't anything to write home about), fried artichoke hearts (TO DIE FOR!!), and the calamari (average). We then... More

This was close to the hotel and had been recommended by a business associate. We were right by the river; any closer and we would have been swimming with the ducks. A beautiful evening, a slight breeze - perfect for a 105 degree day. My husband ordered the a manicotti dish and it was wonderful. He out-ordered me. I got... More

A tad pricey but it is on river walk. We each had the med salad mine with tuna and hers with shrimp. They were very good. The artichoke heart appetizer was really really good. If you only have a few days available you should make this one of your spots.
