“great italian meal with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We were vacationing in Islamorada for a week with friends and were in the mood for Italian. Got a recommendation for Paesano's and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was friendly and attentive. We all had pasta with marinara or fra diavolo sauce. It was delicious. The wine choices were also good. We were too full for desert but enjoyed our evening.

“Annoying Male Waiter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Pizza was good but the older male waiter was patronising and rude made us feel very uncomfortable could not wait to leave.

“OUTSTANDING! Service and Cuisine TOP NOTCH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We started out at this restauraunt on our first evening. We did not know where anything was and were running out of patience with our little one. We had two older girls with us but our little one was quickly draining the last vestiges of energies we might have left. We went into Paesano's Italia and were more than surprised when they were super welcoming to a family of four. Though it was not crowded, it should be because our food was excellent, the service was more than superb, and we could not have asked for a better wait staff. Our waiter in particular was very kind and knowledgeable about assisting us to get to various places and we ended up leaving him a $20.00 tip because of the most pleasant dining experience we have had in our lives! The older girls were excited about the food (mainly the desserts) but they also ate a healthy portion of their overflowing plates of Fettuccine Alfredo. Though for us on one income it was pricey, it was still the best place we have ever eaten anywhere in the US. Thank you all for a wonderful experience. We hope to visit again and make it a tradition to stop and eat with you. We met the owner who was delightful and if I am not mistaken, Scott was also our wait person. He was fantastic! Many thumbs up to all of you! This place makes you feel as if you are the only people there and that all they exist to do is wait on you.

“Just what we needed when overwhelmed by the the locale cuisine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Had a wonderful time at dinner tonight. Scott served us, introduced us to Vinnie, the owner, and created an enjoyable atmosphere. The pizza we ordered was delicious and we'll probably return for more before our vacation ends.

“Awesome service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Scott went above and beyond to take care of us! He refilled my wine glass to overflowing and made sure my husband and I didn't want for anything. He offered to give us the lay of the land for the remainder of our vacation.
