Nice place with warm decoración and environment. The Capellini Comodoro Fresco is my favorite. The Eggplant Parnasiana pasta is also great. Desert selection so, so...

Business trip to SATX. Went to Paesano's for dinner and cocktails. Wonderful service. Well-prepared and tasty food. Pleasant atmosphere. Weird bathroom signs--I thought it was only weird in Austin. Sitting outside in the patio area with the coy pond was excellent! Plenty of free parking.

Since I ALWAYS get the shrimp Paesanos, I thought I'd try the ceviche this time. Bad choice. No taste. One of the 4 citrus juices used was too overpowering to taste the seafood in it. Caesar salad is always good. We tried the Brie appetizer and that was okay too! The house chianti is perfect.

This place is pricey and absolutely worth every penny! Fancy, classy, suit & tie, wear a dress kind of place. I would go here for a special occasion (ie: anniversary, birthday, visitors from out of town, LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME...place). If you want the best steak in town this is where I would go. You can cut the Filet... More

The food at Paesanos is spectacular! Of course their signature dish of shrimp Paesanos is always what the hubs orders. It is cooked to perfection. But warning it is very rich. The house salad is ample and basic but their dressing is wonderful. I ordered snapper Paesano but was a little disappointed because the batter was much thicker than I... More

Shrimp Paesano is always delicious, as is the Fish Special. They bring out bread, olive oil, and hummus to start you off. Beautiful decor. Really good service. Always delicious.

Paesano's 1604 is a gem hidden behind trees lining 1604. It has great food and staff. I really recommend the calimari and most any food you can get there.

We ate in dinner in Paesanos and it was a quite good experience. We had Italian food (what else in an Italian restaurant) and found it quite good. The service was good, they had decent wine at reasonable prices and the decor is quite nice.

Ok, I used to be a huge Paesanos fan. It's been around forever and is a local restaurant. However, several times I have been disappointed in either the food, or service, or both. So I only go when someone else invites. This last visit was surprisingly good. We were there with another couple who are regulars and known well by... More
