We live on the West side and became regulars at Webers because the best server ever worked there. Then she told us she was going to Paesano's. We were sad to see her go so we decided to go visit her at her new location. We asked for Amanda and of course knew the service would be amazing and we... More

My sister and I took our elderly parents there, and this was selected by them based on prior experience. On a Saturday after noon it was quiet and not rushed. They offer a large selection of Italian and other wines. Large menu of classic Italian dishes. Our orders included duck-filled ravioli with peas (a special that day), eggplant parmigiana, and...

Very nice ambiance and very classy restaurant. Enjoyed the atmosphere, food choices are many all of which sounded delicious. The choices we made were excellent and I would choose them again. One little obstacle, getting out of the parking lot was not the easiest based on the location of the restaurant and main road.

Paesano's is more than great classical Italian food. The menu is quite varied, and does very well with it's gluten free items. The gluten free pasta is very good. They feature a very nice wine selection. The wait staff is very helpful, and fun. Paesano's is not to be missed when in the area.

I am a builder here in the city and I take all of my clients here at least once during their project. The food is always excellent, the service is far above what you receive downtown, and the wine list is to die for! Cannot recommend enough!

Since I originally wrote a lunch review of Paesano's, we have visited there for dinner a number of times. We always love it! The servers are friendly and know the menu items, the owner usually stops by tables to chat and be sure everyone is happy, and the food is as good, or better, than the finest restaurants around.
