As expected, average italian eatery in america. Must say stuffed shells were good. Artichoke fritter appetizer was just ok. They need more waiters as its too crowded for the staff they have.

The menu offered many choices for our family of vegetarians/non vegetarians. Pastas were well cooked and we enjoyed the cheese raviolis with pesto sauce as well as the plain butter and garlic penne. The fish dishes were well cooked and the shrimp paesano's remains a favorite for it's garlic and butter sauce. A wonderful souffle and creme brulee rounded out an excellent meal.

We had not been to Paesanos on Basse for some time and decided to stop in for lunch. We found the food to be very good.....not over the top great and the service to be the same. One thing that did surprise me was that the bread plate delivered to the table had marvelous bread; however the olive oil was mixed with some sort of vegetable oil and was therefore very oily and flavorless. WOW, not a good place to cut corners! The salad was exceptional and the mussels in white wine were mediocre. The mussels must have been made with the same flavorless oil that was in the dipping bowl. They were cooked to perfection, but needed more sauce and more flavor. The Giant Calamari were as good as always........which is GREAT. Our server stood at the table while we totaled the tab, which I find extremely offensive and his tip diminished because of this. I had water and my glass was never filled and was empty for sometime. I remember the food being of higher quality and the service a tad more polished. All in all it was not bad, just not the exceptional place it used to be.

My wife and I hosted a meeting here and ordered pizzas, everyone loves pizza. The pizza was delicious. We had the vegetarian, cheese, sausage and a pizza with a thinly sliced tomato on each slice. Every pizza was incredible. Be warned, this isn't Dominoes or Pizza Hut style pizza. The crust was thin and the mozzarella was fresh, even the plain cheese pizza was delicious. You won't be disappointed unless your expecting something other than authentic Italian pizza.

Terrible food and service. I will never go back. The food lacked any sort of flavor and quality was well below average.
