Had a great dinner Thanksgiving weekend. Atmosphere very festive. Service was spot on and the prices are surprisingly low for generous portions. We had a great time all around!

The restaurant was packed. No masks and no checking of vaccinations upon entry. As this is required in NYC they are breaking the rules.
Service was horrible - slow and almost impossible to get anyone's attention despite the fact that we were a group of 8. When we did get service it was rushed with the sense that we were in a cafeteria. Food was ok - my Caesar salad was good the gnocchi Bolognese was not. Industrial grade gnocchi that was almost inedible.
More important than the bad food and lack of service is the complete disregard for Covid rules and protocols.

The food was outstanding. I had a reservation and was 5 minutes early. We were not acknowledged for 20 min and seated 45 min late. We make reservations for a reason and 5 to 10 minutes late would be exceptable, but we were not acknowledged for 20 probably won't return

We sat outside, and it was quiet and warm (space heaters). The inside of the restaurant was packed, so the tables outside were a bit neglected by the waiters. But we were not in a rush, so we enjoyed the moment.

My wife, son and I traveled to NYC for my son’s birthday. I found Paesano’s on Mulberry after looking at reviews of restaurants in Little Italy. Paesano’s did not disappoint. The atmosphere and service were great. The food was too. I had lasagna which was delicious. My wife enjoyed chicken parm and the bday boy had fettuccine Alfredo. Overall, it was a pleasant dinner.

Visiting from Texas. Excellent tasting food, friendly service and classic Italian decor. Perfectly made lemon drop martini, crisp calamari, delicious lasagna, tender veal piccata and homemade linguini. Wanted tiramisu, but didn’t have room!

I don’t think I would be able to recommend this place t9 anyone I cares about. Unfortunately, it just didn’t do it for me. Coming to little Italy, I was expecting homemade pasta and quality food. This place did not deliver. If you are on a budget, looking for a just ok meal, this restaurant might do it for you. No comparison to other places I have tried… overall, pretty disappointed.

We celebrated my sons birthday and ordered the Tortellini Bolognese and chicken Frandsche’s. Both dishes came in delicious sauce. I ordered a marinated house salad wasn’t really anything special. The linguine with substituted for sautéed spinach which was a nice choice. I ordered a glass of Chianti. And for dessert we ate tiramisu which was delicious. Though waiting staff was hospitable and very friendly. There’s definitely a comfortable place to go out and have a meal
