“Best sandwich in Philly”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Come to Philly for a cheesesteak, then go here when you're actually hungry. Best sandwich in the city!

“One of Our Favorites-Italian Market Location”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I've been here countless times and every time I wonder why I don't go more frequently. The Paesano's on 9th street is awesome. It's a little tricky to find (right next to the fish stall) but so worth it. Their vegetarian crispelle sandwich is fantastic as is the lamb sausage sandwich. The restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall local spot but honestly, the food is so good, who cares?

“Place was amazing”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

The staff was polite and fast. The food was out of this world. Not only was the food great but the portion size was big as well. I will go back every time I am in Philly.

“Crazy Delicious!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

They say good things come in small packages. Well, that is an understatement for Paesano's Philly Style Sandwiches. This was one of our planned meals for our trip to Philly. Forget about Pat's and Geno's. I've had 10x better in Michigan. This small place had gigantic, perfectly paired flavors in each of the sandwiches that we enjoyed. The Gustaio with lamb sausage was a perfect combination of sweet and savory, earthy lamb, sweet cherry moutard, creamy gorgonzola and peppery arugula, crazy delicious! The Zawzeech was equally incredible with its slightly spicy italian sausage accompanied by, what tasted like, an all day, homemade sauce, carmelized peppers and onions and sharp provolone. It was like a party in your mouth. Eventhough we went for the pork, we left knowing that it too would have been out of site. The guys were equally fabulous. Wish this place was in Michigan.
