Everyone had a different entre, but they all looked the same. I decided to play it safe and get just soup and bread. This place use to be great, but it has tanked for sure. To have this place rank so high of places to eat is truly disturbing. If you want a fantastic Italian meal, try Carrabba's in KC--where... More

If I lived in Topeka, this would become one of my favorite restaurants! Service was great, good was delicious, portions were large (my husband and I shared) and prices were reasonable. Fried ravioli - YUM!

I have had mixed experiences. Usually the food is really good - I love the ravioli artichoke plate. Lots of food - I get two dinners for the price of one. I would rate it higher, but I did have one unfortunate meal issue that was pretty bad that I just haven't been able to get past that even though... More

Got there at 7 and main course didn't come until 8. Seemed like long wait for 4 dishes but they kept us good with second helping of Olive Garden style bowl of salad. One of our party ordered calamari and was great! Thick and tender they looked like chicken fingers. I Ordered the special which was seafood with spicy Alfredo... More

Many years ago Paisanos was a great Italian getaway stationed locally. It continues to go downhill and it seems the menu is entirely pre-cooked. The noodles are dipped in hot water and dropped on a plate with watery sauce. The breadsticks were rock hard at the ends and soggy from reapplied butter/spices in the middle. My daughter is 4 and...

Locally owned and operated in Topeka. Wonderful salads and soups. Bread sticks are great. All you can eat. So much better than Olive Garden. It is near the zoo on Gage. If you have the chance to go you won't be disappointed.

Thank John D
