Wow! I live in Miami and I love Italian Food. I can’t believe I had to go all the way to Tavernier to eat the best, authentic Italian food I have ever had. When we arrived at Paesanos Little Italy Restaurant, we were seated immediately and felt very welcomed. We started off with the garlic rolls. They were slightly toasty on the outside and delicately soft on the inside with the perfect balance of garlic and oil. Truly the best I have ever had. Next we had the Calamari Giovanni. My boyfriend doesn’t like spicy food, but I love it. So, the very attentive and super pleasant waitress suggested we put the peppers on the side. It was absolutely delicious. The wine selection was great as well. I had a really nice glass of red wine that complimented my meal. They have a very nice selection, great prices too.
My boyfriend and I were both starting to feel a little full when our entrée arrived. We had the Veal Saltimbocca. This is a must try. It is a super tender veal with marsala wine sauce with mushrooms, prosciutto, different herbs and spices that seem be dancing a perfect tango in our mouths. I had never tasted veal this way before, it was amazing. Although we were stuffed, we could not stop eating until we were done, it just tasted so incredibly good. We also spent a little time with the owners, James and Vinnie. Make sure to say hello to them, they make you feel like you are visiting old friends for dinner. And as Vinnie explained to us, that is what what Paesano means in Italian, it’s about friendship.
This place is a GEM! We will definitely be back and soon I hope!
