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.

i was in town for one night and decided to eat at the Quarry area location. I used to eat here when I was in town for business before I retired. I was pleased that my memories were accurate. I love the basket of mixed breads they bring you. Everything remained the same including the crowds. I had the Shrimp... More

A group of friends met to celebrate a birthday. There were about a dozen of us and the waitstaff did a good job of keeping up with the various drink orders while educating us on the Daily Specials. The seafood entrees were excellent. Shrimp varieties were were all top rated by our group! Adult beverages were also quite tasty. All... More

I have been to this restaurant with (1) my husband, (2) a small group of friends, and (3) a business Christmas lunch. Each and every time, I have enjoyed exceptional service, great food, a wonderful atmosphere, and attention to special food requests that are above and beyond. Not many restaurants can manage large groups as efficiently and effectively as Paesanos!... More
