Good food, good service

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.

We ate at the 555 East Basse, San Antonio, Texas 78209, (210) 828-5191 location. I have eaten at their other locations and think this is the best location to eat at. We only eat here once or twice a year and always have the Shrimp Paesano. We have eaten many of the menu items and have never had a bad... More

On the Riverwalk, but not right at the front, so didn't get lots of people walking past our table. My salmon salad was very good and my partner's salmon stuffed with crab was great too. Very busy, but service was very professional. Nice place to eat in San Antonio

WOW! This place was amazing. We made reservations in advance for 7 of us. We had two servers waiting on us and they were great! The food was delicious, the wine was wonderful and the service was unbelievable. They made my daughters birthday special. We will definately return.

We have eaten at Paesanos since the sixties. It is also consistently outstanding, the food and the service, the full bar is available with a good assortment of wines and Proceco. We have lunch after church sometimes and dinner often. Probably will for another 50 years.

My other reviews center around what is most impotant to me...service....this restaurant doesnt disappoint. From the moment you enter, you are greeted by wonderful smiling staff ready to greet and serve. It is quite obvious that the executive chef has taken care of every aspect of the restaurant..food ..service...promptness..etc. The food was fresh and delicious...the service was impeccable and the...

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
