Good food but they have too large of a menu so some things can be just OK. Can be a little pricey for Italian food in this area.

Wonderful family atmosphere and good food. Only food one of our party did not enjoy were the meatballs which tasted spongy like they had been sitting a while. They were happy to replace that order. The other dinners were really good. Prices are in the 3 out of 5 range. Good service and customer service is excellent.

One of the first dates I had with my boyfriend was at Paesano's Italian Restaurant and it was an wonderful choice! The service was excellent and the food was excellent. The menu is very diverse with something for everybody. The 5-layer chocolate cake and tiramisu are fantastic dessert choices!

This is a go to place for hands down a great Italian Meal. The servers are very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food/wine pairings. The food is authentic and it shows in every dish that is prepared. Some of our favorite is the black/blue chicken, eggplant, pizza and seafood dishes are perfection. Give it a try next time you are looking for a great place for dinner. We don't eat dessert very often due to being stuffed but they do have some wonderful treats to try!

He have a lake house on Keowee, and have eaten at Paesano's for 7-8 years. We have never had a bad experience, and on a few occasions, the special has been one of the best dinners I have ever had. Frank, the owner, is always moving around the restaurant making sure everything is running smoothly, and every customer is taking care. He is also great with a wine selection, and he actually serves some excellent, and inexpensive wines. The wait staff is experienced and friendly, and the Chef's always have great specials, as well as typical menu items like Eggplant Stack.

I highly recommend a reservation if you have more than two people in your party. Otherwise sit at the bar like my wife and I always do when we are alone. There are always lots of locals at the bar, and you never know what interesting thing you will find out about Seneca and the surrounding area.

This may be an Italian Restaurant, but they have steak and seafood as well, and there is most always a steak and seafood special.

Paesano's is certainly the best Italian in the Upstate, and one of the best restaurants overall.
