We made a reservation for a retirement luncheon for 50 people, but the tentative attendees grew to 75. Everytime we called Paesanos they said "no problem" and that they could accommodate us. Previous experiences with other restaurants have been so-so - with a large group they want pre-payments, no individual checks, or take forever to bring the checks and collect... More

While we were visiting San Antonio, we went out to dinner with some old neighbors, and they suggested Paesanos. We love Italian food, so we said sure. Glad we did. The restaurant was conveniently located off the highway, close to the airport. The atmosphere was very nice within the restaurant, the wait staff was Excellent. The food selection was very... More

Love the food, service is great. We always enjoy Paesano's when we're in San Antonio. Our latest visit was in late Dec. As always, it was crowded but we managed to get a table without a wait. Never disappointed!

Service was good, food was very good, location was fine. On the riverwalk and better than most in that location. I had shrimp in lemon butter, which I usually avoid because many restaurants don't seem to be able to cook it properly. But it was good here. Good wine list. Friendly and helpful staff with good recommendations.

Service excellent I had shrimp Paesano with pasta when it arrived the portion looked so small but I turned out bringing some home because it was so filling. Excellent wine selection and our waiter made very good suggestions to pair with our meals. Parking gets a little tricky on weekends and consider making reservations for weekend nights and large parties.

Christmas Eve dinner with the family and as usual this place did not disappoint. The tables were a bit close but due to the occasion it was understandable. Service was very good but the server was young and didn't know all that the restaurant could provide that was not in the menu. Very polite and I'm sure will be excellent... More

We had shrimp drenched in a lemon butter sauce as an appetizer. The fish entree was tender and was a large portion. The pasta had a light delicious sauce with a sherry flavor that was terrific. The flourless chocolate hazelnut torte was one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. I would like to have the recipe. It was... More

Best waiter ever last night. Usually pretty good service but the guy last night was one top of his game. Had shrimp Paesano and it was very good as usual. House Cab was very good as well.

I can remember eating at these two brother's restaurant at the HemisFair World's Fair as a college student in 1968. And then they stayed and opened a local restaurant in San Antonio and when our family moved there in 1984, Paesano's became a regular in our dining choices. Although the Riverwalk and Loop 1604 locations are excellent, we still prefer... More

It is a beautiful restaurant (Paesanos Parkway). John was our waiter and he did a great job as well as being very friendly. Paesanos had been recommended to us by a friend and she was right, the food is delicious. They even gave us our dessert because we were from out of town. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
