...about their Shrimp Paesano. But my personal fave is Lobster Fettuccine in a Chipotle sauce with capers. It is out of this world. $20 including salad. Great servers: Jay and William.

Ate here with my company and was not impressed. It's not bad food, just average food at 5 star prices! There are many great places to eat in San Antonio but this isn't one of them! Not worth the price! Go elsewhere!

The outdoor seating is very good as there is space back from the Riverwalk so you don't have to share your meal with long lines of walkers but can still enjoy the atmosphere. Our server worked hard with excellent suggestions and careful attentiveness. I had the veal stuffed pasta shells and it was one of the best pasta meals I... More

We stumbled upon Paesanos, because we needed a restaurant, and it came up in our GPS. What a nice surprise! The food was excellent. We took the waiter's recommendations and chose the "customer favorites", the shrimp dish, the "special salad". The dishes were unique, flavorful, and delightful.

Whenever we come to San Antonio we go out of our way to come to this one. We've been coming since all there was out there was a golf course. My partner had the osso bucco. A little over done on outside but excellent otherwise. I had the Pollo Francesca (like my sister-in-law). They give lots of great sauce and... 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
