Very Good Italian Pasta Spot

This is a very, very good Italian spot. Paesaon's is a very small, very casual, and somewhat loud restaurant wedged into two or three small dining rooms, and is a busy spot. But it has a very good selection of Italian dishes, and their Rose sauce (a blend of marinara and white sauce) was... read more

Very small, pleasant spot for a parents dinner. Probably a little too expensive for a college budget but a delicious meal. Good variety. Good quality. Wine list is thin, but that's not a major downgrade.

Oxford diners were happy when Paesano's re-opened the former MaryJo's restaurant site across from Miami U's campus a few blocks south of Uptown. But the space is quite small and reservations are not accepted; you must call early in the evening to get a table for dinner. My friends see it as a special-event venue worth a drive from nearby...

Oxford is not a big town and hence this restaurant is very small. It serves great Italian food but be prepared to wait on some nights and have tables very close together. If you ignore that you will find that the food is plentiful and delicious.

We had a long day driving to Oxford, including a speeding ticket! All we wanted was a good meal and a bit of time to unwind, Paesano's delivered! The food is wonderful, fresh and very flavorful! The staff was wonderful, freindly, knowledgeable about the menu and very professional! The lemoncello is not to be missed!

The food at this Italian restaurant is heavy on the red sauce. Most dishes have too many ingredients and too much cream or cheese.The menu is a riot if you know Italian. If you order carefully you can get a decent meal and some of my friends LOVE it.

At one time the former cuisine lured customers who were willing to overlook the lack of comfort. Heck, there were even reservations and waiting lists.
