“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Went here for my daughter's graduation dinner on the recommendation of a friend and LOVED it. We were sat in a small private room that was gorgeous. Had 2 waitresses that were so helpful with the different menu items. The bread was fantastic!!! Overall a bit pricey, but you aren't at Olive Garden. Was a great dinner and will definitely go back!!

“Above average price and average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Ate here with a large group of friends. Restaurant didn't appear very busy and waitress was efficient with getting beverages initially but less attention as the meal progressed. Ordered the Caesar Salad with steak and had very little flavor, salad was cut so small it was hard to eat. Rolls and butter were the best part of the meal. Overall cost for a beverage and salad was 25$ which I think is pretty high. Others ordered the Tilapia and Chicken Piccata which had better feedback. I'd stay away from the salads and follow the recent recommendations with the Italian style dishes.

“Good authentic Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My family has been going here for many years. The menu changes with the season and each week they have a number of new specials. We go on Friday nights and the fish is always fresh and the weeks new specials have just come out for the week. The wines are all Italian and can be pricey. They will pour you a taste of their wines if you ask so you will not be disappointed when it arrives. The owner is always on hand a personally supervises the floor as well as help bus and serve when necessary. They have room for social occasions and also cater. It's a great place all around

“Amazing food and great ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Had dinner here last night for a Wine Tasting Dinner event that was fantastic. They brought in the owner of an Italian vineyard that makes the wine they serve at Paesano's and he talked to everyone about the process and pairing. Had an amazing 5 course meal there and every dish was fantastic.

The restaurant has a great ambiance and the patio area is really amazing - feels like you've stepped out of Ann Arbor and into Italy!

“Creative and Original Italian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

A favorite of ours in a city replete with excellent restaurants. Menu is varied and creative, with seasonal specials, original creations as well as more traditional dishes. All complemented with a thoughtful and reasonably priced selection of excellent regional Italian wines. (All available for retail purchase, as well--nifty idea for when you've really enjoyed something and want to add it to your private cellar.)

Excellent, well-stocked bar staffed with skilled bar tenders.
