I am not positive this is the exact location of this restaurant. We ate at the "Quarry" location which was a taxi ride from downtown. The food and service were both excellent.

My family and I used the restaurants near me feature on trip advisor and just stumbled upon this one. We decided, why not? The service was awesome. We had a eaitor named joe and outside of him we also dealt with probably no less than 5 others. They were constantly patrolling to see who needed refills and they even brought... More

One of the top restaurants ( in the affordable range) for food and service I've been to in a long time. The Shrimp Paesanos is excellent as well as the Pork (with cinnamon - Yum!). And the service was excellent - very attentive but not hovering and bothersome. The family had a wonderful time - even treated the little ones... More

Shrimp peasant is the best. Never miss a chance to have dinner especially at 1604 location. Staff is always helpful and great choices. Excellent food at a good price.

Paesanos is an upscale Italian venue serving outstanding meals. The modern decor is complimented by extraordinary service from an attentive staff. Table size appears small and when the meals arrive, quite crowded for a party of 4. The menu is extensive, as is the winelist. Even the bread is fabulous, WE ordered a bottle of the Ferrari Carano Cabernet. I... More

The restaurant is in a really nice area and has an upscale atmosphere. The service started out great but then the kids were only given drink refills (adults had to ask for more tea), I never got my salad I asked for and the bread basket stopped having a variety of breads and we became limited to a fruit/nut bread...

Paesanos restaurant on the beautiful San Antonio River Walk is a treat for true Italian food lovers. As you would expect from a fine Italian restaurant the service and ambiance are excellent. The specialties of the house are exceptional. I strongly recommend the "Paesanos shrimp". Paired with an excellent sauvignon blanc, the meal was divine. Sitting on the patio with... More

I would've given them 5 stars if service was better! Back in the 80's they had a location in Corpus Christi, which we miss. I don't know what was going on with the service; other tables were getting great service, maybe because they're regulars? Don't know. I waited over 20 minutes to get a glass of wine? But, the food...
