“It just gets better and better!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

Paesano's must be doing a lot right as they just celebrated their 30th year in business.

We travel to Ann Arbor 3-4 times and year and have never made it any other restaurant other than Paesano's...
'cause
We know we'll always have a great meal with their seasonal offerings (last weekend we had blueberry barbeque ribs and the Italian Country vegs in pasta - great flavors, and perfect portions.
The wine selection is one of the best and the recommendations the staff make always lead us to a new variety to add to our own cellar!
The hospitality is "bar none". The staff knows their stuff and are eager to accommodate - making it a pleasure without being overbearing!

“Hospitality top notch, food excellent, wine list wonderful!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Paesano's Restaurant must be doing a lot right - they just celebrated 30 years in business. We travel to Ann Arbor 3-4 times a year and so far we haven't ventured to another restaurant 'cause we haven't finished trying everything on their great menu with its seasonal influences. The wait staff know how to make you feel welcome, very accommodating, and professional. The food - best Italian I've - and I'm Italian! Great meld of flavors with unexpected twists - like the blueberry barbecue glaze on the ribs, and the vegetables in the Italian country pasta. Don't know where they get their macaroons but the first one's I've ever had that actually had flavor! They really know their wine - we've never been disappointed and the variety available keeps evolving.

“Little Italy ”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Well, shall I say every experience here is different? The food is quite good but at a cost. Of course it is a very established restaurant and is very well known, but sometimes I feel that too much garlic can ruin an excellent meal.

It's always been a favorite in Ann Arbor but I think it could step it up a notch

“Beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy sangria”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went for after work business before a flight and had a great experience. Not the best view overlooking the parking lot/road, but it was still great to sit outside in the summer. The sangria was perfect and the apps and meals were all good. Our waitress was great, will definitely return if in the area!
