My wife and I walked into Paesanos about3:30-4:00 after we had been busy shopping and wanted to have dinner before we went home. We were greeted and promptly seated in the main dining room. Our server Angel came to us and asked if we had any questions and took our drink order. No questions as we had dined there before.... More

The special salad is wonderful, as is the caesar salad. This location is quite popular and parking can be an issue. Go early. My favorite entree is the Shrimp Paesano.

Decided to take a customer here as I had not eaten here in quite some time. The fried artichoke app was very good but the shrimp paesano and calamari was not as spectacular as I remember. Although it was still good. My seared tuna was very good and the portion was huge. The best part of the experience was John... More

We had a family dinner for about 10 people. The server pretended to know what he was doing, but he was clueless. I had soft shell crab and others in the party had the so called signature house dish of some kind of shrimp. Essentially, everything came out of a fryalator. My soft shell crab might just as well been... More

My husband and I visited last week on a recommendation from a friend. We arrived at about 7:15 and were seated right away. Daniel was our server and took care of us in every way imaginable. The restaurant was fairly busy; we waited a bit at first for our drinks, but not too long. Every bit of food was delicious,... More

We were visiting family in San Antonio and chose this restaurant for our goodbye meal. Its a classy place. We were seated in the front section and there is a wall separating this section from the main restaurant. The wall only goes halfway up. We were seated near others whose conversation I had to listen to during the whole meal.... More

A great place to bring your significant other or for a classy business meal. Most everything on the menu is great and the portions are large. A bit pricey to eat and drink for two (100.00 with tip) but I have a smile on my face and a full belly. Service was excellent and the restaurant was clean. Shrimp Paesanos... More

As a frequent traveler i often visit restaurants and hotels. On rare occasion do I come across a resturant with impeccable customer service and cuisine. From the hostess to the wait staff, the service was amazing. Everyone was nice and very friendly. The food was amazing. The seafood seemed fresh, and the dishes were not over done with sauces as...

I had the Chicken Caccitore, another had Mussels & Eggplant Parmesan and our third person had mushroom ravioli. Salads and bread were excellent as was the service. My dinner was enough for the next night too. I was so glad we went there. Next time in San Antonio I'm sure I'll return
