Evening visit for dinner. Started with the signature shrimp with garlic sauce. Lovely flavor and the sauce was great to go with the bread. I had meatballs and spaghetti. It was good. Not a strong flavor in the meat but enjoyable. The atmosphere was nice but it can get very noisy. Waiter was experienced. He had a good knowledge of... More

Lovely setting on the Riverwalk; excellent service and the food was delicious. You can dine inside or on the patio.

I highly recommend making a reservation. This place gets busy! We had a reservation for 6, waited about 25 minutes then we were seated. The service was good and fast, the food was tasty! Party of 6, everyone was happy.

Lovely place on san antonio's riverwalk, food is good, not really italian but it is good. Service was very good, they made their effort to make us feel good and were very attentive. The terrace is a lovely place to have dinner.

I would recommend Paesanos. The food and service were very good. This is great for a date night since tables are on the San Antonio Riverwalk. I suggest you sit outside but further away from the river so you are able to talk and hear each other. (We went on Sat night) I don't recommend it for "romance" or business... More

To end our evening we decided to have dinner at Paesano's on the Riverwalk. The atmosphere was great as was the food. Our waiter really took the time to be sure everything was OK (Scotty Love - highly recommend him)

As others have alluded to, this place only does well due to its location. Exploring the Riverwalk solo, I decided on Paesano's. Since I was by myself I sat at the bar which had immediate seating. (Even this is odd as one's back is to the water.) The bar staff was the highlight of the meal; a team of two... More

We went here because I really wanted italian food and saw this place got a lot of good reviews. Honestly though we should've saved ourselves the money and went to Olive Garden. The quality and variety was a bit disappointing. It wasn't bad per se, but nothing to really write home about.
