Pasta was excellent, Veal Parm - good, not awesome but solid. Service was average, but the place was packed so overall it was a very good experience. Prices are reasonable for NYC.

The food was exceptional and the service was very quick. Almost too fast - the need to turn the table to another group was almost palpable. It’s hard to complain about the food arriving too quickly, but when the expectation is for a relaxing dinner; super fast service makes the meal seem rushed. It was an absolutely fabulous dinner however - just at a high speed pace.

Awesome food, great atmosphere! The only drawback (if you can call it a drawback) was the tight quarters. And when I look all around me I saw everyone else in the restaurant enjoying themselves just as much as we did. i can't recommend this restaurant enough!

The food was excellent but our server did fall short, my date asked for a specific type of beer and got something different and we were still charged for it even though the server acknowledged that he did in fact bring the wrong drink. Then at the end of our meal, we had to request the check THREE TIMES because the server kept forgetting. My date actually had to get up to find the server to let him know that we still were waiting on the check. If it weren’t for our experience with the server, I would have given this restaurant 5 stars.

Vitorio, our waiter, was one of the best.
He kept was on top of our orders, made jokes with the family, and made the entire experience.

Would highly recommend, if only for 30 minutes of service from this man.

We went to San Gennaro Feast and ate at Paesanso's for dinner (last year we did too). Food is amazing and it was fast service even though it was super busy. The only mis step I could say is they didnt ask if we wanted dessert they just gave us the check. Nbd considering it was the feast and I am sure they needed the table. Would def go back.

I always enjoy Little Italy over the Sam Gennaro festival period, and stopping by any of the old established eateries. I had the baked ziti and it came gleaming with ricotto and moz cheese - just the way I like it. Also the fried calamari was fresh, crisp and not oily.

I found this restaurant on Open Table. I have been to Little Italy many many times as a former New Yorker. This is by far the BEST Italian restaurant in the city! Run, don't walk for excellent food & service!

We had a reservation and stood inside the door for 15 minutes, body to body, with everyone else awaiting to be seated for their reservation. Not once did someone come over to any of us. The place was so jammed, they let us all just stand there and not be helped. No one was being seated. The people that were in front of us were waiting a half hour without anyone helping them. They should not take reservations. It's ridiculous.

I cannot believe that people are rating this restaurant so high. Really?! Old place, it smells, the dishes is not that clean, the food is simply expensive cafeteria style, probably coming out of the freezer. The bread was not fresh and the wine was warmer than the room temperature. I am under the impression that I just lost $140. Very disappointing. And there are so many good restaurants on Mulberry street. Please go somewhere else.

We were seated in the back corner near the kitchen and near a shelf of wine. The waiters continued to reach over us throughout the night to get bottles. I regret eating here. Should have went to Sofia's which is across the street and much better service, food and tables.
