- VivianDined on 6/21/2014I had a really early lunch at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, to take advantage of the double points event that weekend. I was the only guest there and it was quiet, unlike other times of the day when I was there and it was really noisy, especially when there were groups around. The food was excellent and piping hot, and the portion was generous. I love their food and will certainly go back any day.Special Features:

- VivianDined on 5/11/2014The restaurant was a tad too dark and too noisy for my liking. Otherwise, the food was excellent, as always, but unfortunately, the crab and lobster on the special menu for Mother's Day dinner, and my favourite dessert Tiramisu, were sold out. We weren't there that late - at 7:00 p.m.!Special Features:

- Nice Italian restaurantDaveGDined on 2/14/2014This is a good Italian restaurant with fair pricing. I had the veal in peppercorn sauce, which was quite good although the veal was a bit on the small side. My wife had the lobster and shrimp with fettuccine, which was very tasty. My daughter had the basic pizza, which had a tasty sweet tomato sauce. Good service, friendly, nice decor, good menu. I would go back to try the pasta. I like that it is local.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was mediocre, at best.MauriceVIPDined on 1/23/2014Food was mediocre, at best. Venue needs a refresh, very tired and worn. OK, but nothing special.Special Features:
- Lunch at Paisano'sluv2dineDined on 11/24/2013We especially appreciate the numerous vegetarian options on the menu. This was a return trip for some of us, but the first time for lunch. We will definitely be back again. Looking forward to trying new dishes, as well as enjoying those we've previously ordered. Service was informative, well-timed, and friendly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Neighbourhood gemOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/15/2013Nice little place. We went there on a hot day and the air conditioning was just not enough. Service was good enough and food came at a descent time. Food was great, mainly pasta and pizza. Wine list not too man selections. Price is good. Will come again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Go for the vealOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 5/12/2013I think this is my mom's favourite restaurant - it's in her neighbourhood, she likes the food. It is often busy, so reservations are recommended. Yesterday they had some specials for Mothers' Day - tried the lobster and shrimp fettuccine in a white wine sauce. Lots of lobster, but dried out; and the whole dish was very greasy. From all of our other dining experiences, I would say that you can't go wrong with the veal. Or the roasted vegetables, normally potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower. The small caesar salad is actually quite large, the dressing is good but the lettuce is cut in strips, so hard to eat. Manicotti and lasagne are also good. Don't bother with the bread, it is usually dried out.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superlative DiningOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 5/1/2013With service this good, Paisano's could have fed us gruel and we would have been delighted. Delicious, lovingly prepared Italian cuisine, with exceedingly generous portions in an establishment that truly cares about its customers. One of the most upbeat dining experiences in the GTA!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Home cooking experiencefoodieatheartDined on 2/24/2013If you're looking for good home-cooked, family atmosphere Italian food, this is the place for you. Food is always more than enough, tasty and very reasonably priced. I enjoy the veal and carbonara dishes.Special Features:

- Deserves another visitluv2dineDined on 12/6/2012The food was delicious; the portions generous, and good value. Each member of our group ordered a different entree (veal, another meat, seafood & vegetarian), and we were all pleased with our choices. A plethora of menu choices for vegetarians was most appreciated! Unfortunately, a VERY large and boisterous party seated nearby detracted from our experience; hence the poor service and energetic noise ratings. We were so distracted by the noise, etc. that we didn't even pay attention to the ambiance. A return visit, at a quieter time is definitely in order.Special Features:
- Good Choice for a Dinner OutrtrothVIPDined on 9/23/2012We were especially delighted with Paisano's commitment to their gluten-free customers. :-) First time there, but it won't be our last!Special Features:
