Description: Paesano is located on the main pedestrian street of Alvor. The terrace offers a spectacular view of the Ria de Alvor and the main street leading down to the ria, while the covered patio in the back of the restaurant is perfect for a quiet meal. This is the ideal place to relax while enjoying one of our delicious dishes, or just sit at the bar having a cocktail or a variety of beer and wine. Our menu is very varied with a great choise of antipasti, homemade pasta & pizza and traditional italian meat and fish dishes. A warm welcome awaits you at Paesano, visit us the next time you pass by Alvor.

We loved this place so much we visited it 3 times in our 1 week in Alvor, we found the service brilliant and i hope i've his name right but marco took great care of us especially when something i wanted was not available that night he went out of his way to find me something else, surprised by comment about the minestrone soup as we had some and it was really good, we also had pizza, calzone and variety of the chicken and pasta dishes and never got a bad one. thoroughly fab place

Visited the restaurant on a Sunday. The service was slow and lacklustre. Minestrone soup for starters arrived lukewarm with no black pepper or parmesan offered and the garlic bread was burnt. Main course was the Paesano pizza which was mediocre and a prawn pasta bake which was bland and contained prawns still in the shells. Overall from our experience there are much better restaurants in Alvors so eat at them instead.

Same people who own Vagabondo, just across the street. A little different from Vagabondo, but no less acceptable for that. Superb fish in particular. Excellent service. We loved it.

A lovely restaurant, with lovely food and lovely staff. Although this is a big restaurant the service is still very personal. This is definatly worth a try people.
