“market italian style”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

this Italian market has everything you need. From produce to fresh meat. A very nice wine selection. Shop here get your wine and go home for a perfect meal. BUT also there is a patio serving lunch until 3pm with daily specials. If you want prepared food the market has a wide variety of italian foods prepared for you to take home and heat up. I had the beef wellington and a nice bottle of wine.

“Cosi-Cosi (so-so)”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The market has a wide selection of italian food, meat and cheese. We stopped for lunch yesterday and while it was ok, it isn't somewhere I can't wait to experience again. My friend usually orders the meatball sandwich and he says it's really good. I had the special which was penne pasta with garlic and broccoli, side salad and garlic bread. The pasta was good however the broccoli was cooked to the point of being mushy which personally I didn't like. He had a cold sandwich on fresh baked focasscia bread which he enjoyed but not as much as the meatball sandwich. The restaurant is outside and casual. Everything was served on stryofoam plates along with plastic 'silverware'. I saw a waitress delivering a red wine to another table and it was in a plastic glass - ah - that just didn't seem right. The waitress was good - our wait time was short but overall it won't go down as a favorite of mine.

“Great Italian Selections”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Just like back home. Everything you need to make an outstanding Italian meal or just some great wine and cheese. I don't care for the little restaurant part of the operation and do wish the people were a bit friendlier but in the Cape you take the good with the bad. And their quality is very good.

“Market is better than Cafe”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The last reviewer hit it right on the head. The market is very interesting and has good quality, the cafe - not so much. Although the prices in the cafe are attractive the quality can be very spotty. Today the special 3 cheese tortellini was tasteless with a watery sauce and the bread was well beyond fresh. the house wine at $1.50 is a bargain.

“Market trumps restaurant”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We love to shop at Paesano's Italian Market. Wide selection, great weekly specials, and a mouth watering deli. Seldom miss a week. On the other hand, although I don't avoid the restaurant, it does have some flaws. Last time I was there the tables were not bussed because there was only one apologetic waitress, and they were out of beer among other things. We decided not to wait. I am not usually disappointed with the food. There is a chef who prepares dishes to sell in the market, but I don't see his creative flare on the restaurant side of the business. It is funky which appeals to me over a chain any day. They would be wise to open up their mind to some fresher ideas for today's diners.
