I have always had good meals at Paesano. I tend order pasta meals but have also had their pizzas and have never left disappointed. I should branch out! It's not a huge restaurant so you are never left waiting too long, and the other benefit of that is that don't find yourself screaming just to be heard over the noise.... More

Absolutely loved our meal here on a chilly Hobart evening. Had the Paesano pizza and Nonna's gnocchi - can absolutely recommend both. As a pizza lover you will not be disappointed. Service was prompt, polite and unforced. Mains were about $20 and nice glass of Pinot was $8.50. Would love to return on our next holiday. We did book for... More

Our AirBnB host recommended the place, and it was an excellent recommendation. it seems to really draw the local crowd, and can be very busy. We visited on a Thursday evening and they couldn't find a table for us. However, they DID allow us to place an order for take out. We visited the grocery across the street and killed... More

pizza and pasta tasty but average. The small pizzas are too large for one "big eater" - we had a small and large for four people

Went with friends, very busy, able to take bottled wine which we appreciated. Staff great, entree servings quite large and tasty. Good service overall. Book early as you won't get in, it's very popular.

Went for dinner tonight, had gluten free pizza vegetarian and garlic prawns. It was flavoursome and came out piping hot. Our waitress was very attentive and quick on her feet! Despite being so busy we were not forgotten. Overall the restaurant was great, food wasn't on the budget side but worth a visit if you love pizza!

I booked for a group of six on a very cold night and they placed us upstairs in a room that is warm and friendly. Although fully licenced, BYO wine is welcome at a very reasonable corkage charge. The menu is extensive and they have daily specials. Everything at our table was regarded as excellent both in presentation and flavour.... More

My partner and I stopped in for dinner following a movie. We were both in the mood for a pizza and had been told theirs were good. We were promptly seated and waited on by friendly staff. We ordered one of their special gourmet pizzas. The main components being Australian prawns, sweet chilli sauce, red capsicums and cheese. It was... More
