Upscale Italian restaurant

We were looking for Italian food and we're not disappointed, the service is top notch and the food excellent, we got chicken Marsala, salmon and chicken Parmesan all very tasty, pasta were al dente and we added desserts that were good and not too sugary. It is a place to spend a good time with food... read more

Good location on the Riverwalk, and a welcome change from most of the other offerings, we ate a late lunch and perhaps that was why service was slow and one of the dishes was missing a main component! However has potential, worth a try and not too expensive.

This place has mastered the 3 requisites for an outstanding restaurant experience: food, service and ambiance. I've dined here 10+ times and they are consistent in all areas. I highly, highly recommend!

Perfect for a quick and delicious meal on the Riverwalk. We had a craving for Italian and they did it right. Sat on the covered patio with nice breeze from the ceiling fan. Service was efficient, knowledgeable and friendly.

We were a group of eight. They were very accommodating as our number of diners changed. The service was attentive, food was all around good, served hot and came out quickly. However the noise level was so high, no one could carry on conversation. We ate as quickly as we could do escape the din. Do not sit on the... More

I recently took a business trip to San Antonio from New York. While I dont often get Italian food anywhere outside of the city, I really needed some good Italian cooking. While walking the Riverwalk downtown I stumbled into Paesanos, and boy, I was not disappointed. I was sat quickly and had a nice glass of wine. When the food... More

If you're used to New York Little Italy quality food, you'll be very disappointed. And, it's very overpriced. I was disappointed. The shrimps in the seafood pescatore we're tiny and practically see-through, the cheap kind. You can't change $20 for something with that in. They should he embarrassed.

We dropped by on a Sunday night during a business trip. The outdoor seating next to the River Walk was nice. The menu featured many Italian favorites and a wide selection of wines. The food was very good and arrived relatively quick given the number of people dining. I would visit again.

Hadn't been to Paesanos in a while and thought we'd give it a a go more for location than anything else. The service was as good as I remembered, and the food was tasty. I had the poached salmon in broth. Definitely back in the rotation.
