We visited this cute place when we dropped our daughter at college last week. It's a small homey feeling restaurant- nothing fancy. The food was better than I expected! All of us enjoyed our meals! And service was great!

This was our second visit to this small Italian gem. The prices, food variety and freshness make this restaurant high on the list of places to eat in Oxford. We did call ahead seating on a Friday night and that paid off. The restaurant is not large so it will be full for evening dinner. When we come visit our... More

Our family always stops to eat at Paesano's when my daughter has swim meets at Miami University in Oxford. The highlight for us is the fresh pasta and choice of sauces. One of our favorite's is the Rose Sauce. It's very authentic and service is always top notch. Make sure to call for reservations early.

This was one of our favorite restaurants when moving to Oxford, and is fine when the students are not in session - but when the restaurant is very busy, you cannot hear a conversation at your table. The noise gets louder, and people talk louder to be heard by their party. Uncomfortable, but great food!

This is a nice restaurant for meeting with friends, enjoying a meal and a glass of wine. The Italian food is quite standard, although the daily fish special is sometimes outstanding and what I usually order. The restaurant is very convenient to the Miami University campus, very near to the ice hockey stadium and Rec Center and so is often... More

Food and wine selection is great. My favorite is the vegetarian risotto. It is slightly al sentence with lots of saluted Vegas. Fish and seafood is not their speciality but the pasta with scallops is good. Love the bread with olive oil and deserts especially the tiramisu. Service is efficient and wait staff pleasant. It is small and crowded on... More

It is worth traveling to get either the Eggplant Parm or the meat lasagna. The place is small but we find the service is good. Salads ok, but we go for the entrees (had no room for dessert) We have visited twice when visiting Oxford and would go back definitely. My father isn't much of a pasta eater but he... More
