When we are arranging something at Darchei Noam on Shepard Avenue, we always eat, often with a guest speaker at Paese. The food is excellent and the service is good. And if we have a tight schedule, they always come through.

Another great time
Paese is a favourite spot. The meatballs appetizer is beyond fantastic and a must have. On this visit the Scamorza pizza was suggested by the staff and it did not disappoint. Smoked scamorza cheese with veal/fennel sausage.
In fact everything is great!

We were a group of 8 out celebrating a birthday. The menu has a nice variety, each dish was outstandingly delicious and the waiter was very friendly and was not overbearing with a million interruptions (customer service doesn't equal frequency). We will definitely dine there again!
My dish was the veal, it's mouth watering.

Can't say enough great things. The scallops are not to be missed and try the Scamorza Pizza-the fennel infused veal sausage on top is just a treat.
Staff always attentive and very friendly.
You will not be disappointed!

Great food at Bathurst and Wilson!
Paese is an excellent Italian restaurant, with very good service in a space which is not special, but is very comfortable and very quiet. Food is unfailiingly excellent. You cannot get anything less than an excellent meal there and you will be well taken care of by knowledgeable waiters.

Best focaccia I've ever had...
Fluffy, crispy, salty and covered with rosemary...what more could you ask for?

Good Italian food
The service was friendly and attentive. Pizza was very good; Arugala salad on mushroom was excellent. Linquini was good, lots of vegetables, but the tomato sauce could have been more dense and more flavourful. Excellent wine. Veal was tender and good. Price a little high for food quality.

Sabine makes my dinners at PAESE COMFORTABLE AND SAFE. I have a serious food allergy and she is careful and attentive to my needs. I introduced PAESE to some friends and they thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the wonderful food. Thank you.

was celebrated at PAESE with 7 family members. It was an outstanding experience. The square table was perfect for this number of guests, the service and food impeccable and everything about this venue was excellent.

Loved the entire meal. Corkage
Loved the entire meal. Corkage on the first bottle was free so our bill was very reasonable. This was our first time and I can guaranteed that we will be back.

All aspects of this restaurant are consistently impeccable. Sabine is a great server and Matt the chef is outstanding! All wait personnel are attentive, smiling, welcoming and I love to go there.

Wait staff at PAESE are knowledgeable and really good at what they do. I love a corner booth which provides privacy and quiet. The food is diverse, tasty and delicious. Chef Matt is so accommodating - I have a food allergy and he always makes me something unique and safe.

We decided on Paese because we were going out with friends and we wanted good food and an unrushed dining experience. We got both. I highly recommend Paese. We all enjoyed our food and we did not feel rushed at all. We'll be back soon especially on a day other than Saturday when you can bring your own wine and drink it without paying a corkage fee. Great idea!

Girls night out
Whenever my friends decide to go out - we choose Paese because it is awesome! If we should tell our server that we are celebrating a birthday or special occasion. They always acknowledge this we some delicious dessert.. This is so nice and personal as the world is becoming so impersonal! The guests are always very nice but because this restaurant is small, the noise level is loud at times.

No matter what you select, the food is prepared individually..always hot and fresh and tasty. The service is impecable and all the wait staff is well-trained and accommodating.
