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.

This place was mediocre in every way. I wish we had chosen the restaurant that was offering the free sangria instead.

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

My wife and I dined at Paesano's on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, and took a table outside. Easting in the outside section was a great choice here because there is much to see in Little Italy with people always passing by but it also allowed for a quieter dining experience and we could easily hear each other speak. We had an excellent dinner and the service was exceptional. I ordered the capellini pasta dish with shrimp special and my wife ordered the pasta combo with salad special. The meals were delicious. We were both very pleased with our selections. Our server Gent was very attentive to our needs and made it a nice dining experience. The pricing was very reasonable. I would definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great Italian restaurant in NYC's Little Italy.

We’ve been coming here every time we visit NYC for the past 20 years. The food never disappoints. The lobster ravioli is delicious! I get it every time. My family had the pesto gnocchi and the bolognese which they both loved. Our table was inside which is a little warm for July since the AC doesn’t work as well in the older building, but wasn’t unbearable.
