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

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 excellent. The offer both special dishes... 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.

Thank Jotum
