Started with a solid cocktail and moved on to amazing food with the friendliest staff. They have a share in the business so you feel they really care. Definitely will go again. Very happy with the plate size to cost profile. 100% recommended.

Food is ok, but if dry piece of bread as side costs 5€ something is wrong. Also small cup if rice as side 5€. Not worth the price.

Was really excited to visit Paisano but I gotta admit I was a bit disappointed - 20€ for 4 piece of prawns..? The Whitefish dish was good tasting but not worth the price, I mean it was only a small piece of fish with some...slivers of vegetable and a nickle size splatter of puree. The drinks and service was nice tho, had to wait a long time for mains even tho the restaurant was pretty empty.More

We were at Paisano with a couple of friends and ordered plates to share. We got great recommendations from the waitress, which we went with. All plates were shared by us, so we got a great variety of meals. The atmosphere was great, the service...as well and the food was amazing. Especially the eggplant and the deserts.More

First of all great eggplant! All the rest was disappointing: Tiger prawns only 2 pieces for 10€ and bad tasting. Muikku was so well done that it chews like gum. Very variable chili amount in portions. Pretty slow service and missed some items like hot...sauces that we did not get at all. Nice try but nothing that makes us wanna go there again.More

Food was okay, recieved the wrong item at first, but our order arrived quickly, the waiters lacked basic manners and were unprofessional. Would come again, if i heard more positive reviews.

This is a true spirit restaurant. The small dishes are all good, and the wine is OK, but the feeling it gives you is one of authenticity and real paisano.

Good quality food with nice modern twist, you still can taste original filipino flavours in a good way. Highly recommend order snackmenu tapas style!

Had lunch, the vegetarian option. The meal was great and big enough, the tofu amazingly crispy! The dish was not spicy at all, so I added some chili sauce that was available on the table. Come eat here, if you love Asian food but need...some variety for a change.More
