    Our server Sabina was absolutely outstanding. She always recommends the best dishes. We continue to go PAESE just to be served by this gracious professional. I am not sure how she is always able to know our dietary restrictions. The restaurant is always clean and the ambience is amazing. We will continue to go to this restaurant for our celebrations.

    Service was excellent and the food was tasty. Espresso coffee was a bit bitter but overall experience was outstanding. Was there for a business meeting and we were accommodated with a quiet area in the corner where we enjoyed our meal and the company.

    Overall experience was good, the Gamberetti to start was lacking. There were only three small shrimp with small portion of beans, was disappointing. We ordered a pasta dish and a pizza which were enjoyed. Felt it was a bit overpriced for overall quality and portions provided.

    The food, service and ambience at Paese is always excellent. I have never been disappointed. Who knows if the value is good anymore because prices are ridiculous in general, BUT if I am going to eat out, at least at Paese I know I'll be getting a great meal and excellent service. Their patio has a great atmosphere and is so nicely set up. Keep up the good work.

    Great patio set-up. Nice heater situation with one above each table and free-standing heaters. Appreciate having one side completely open for safety (would be nice if had opportunity to open windows on other side as well). Very professional service. A bit limited menu but something for everyone. Overall happy with the experience.

    This place used to be my go-to place for a wood-fired pizza and pasta, but last time we visited, the pizza tasted nothing but cheese and the spaghetti was extremely undercooked and bland.

    The waitstaff were excellent, friendly & efficient. We ordered salad bowls which were new lunch specials & very disappointing. The ingredients were fresh but the dressings did not complement the salads. It is better to order Italian food. The person who ordered sweet potato ravioli loved it

    We got a table outside in their makeshift outdoor space - they have done a nice job but the traffic is loud. Our waiter wasn’t present. He checked on us maybe once. Our water glasses took +++++ time to refill. It took us 20 min to catch someone’s eye to ask for our bill even though we could hear new diners coming in asking for outdoor seating and being told there was a long wait. It was almost as if they were avoiding eye contact. As for the food, just fine. Polenta fries a bit overdone. Marcher it’s pizza needed more flavour in the sauce but the crust was very good. Gnocchi needed more pieces of squash. Overcharged for the drink I ordered but too frustrated with the terrible service to rectify it. Not rushing to go back anytime soon.

    Pizzas and pastas and salads were enjoyed by all. Unfortunately, the service was quite poor although friendly. Thankfully we were not in a hurry but the time to bring our food was far too long and the attention by our server was severely lacking. I understand they may have been short staffed so we did not complain but normally this would be quite unacceptable.

    Food was very good. They've done a lovely job of making what used to be their parking lot into a tented, inviting space with plants, lattice dividers, drapery, floor to and string lighting the entire ceiling of the tent. We had a happy and satisfying family dinner.

    Service was very attentive. Dishes were brought out by several staffers, on time and hot. Food was very good - appetizers - mushroom calamari and Octopus (special) - presentation was great and octopus was perfectly done. For Entrees, Funghi and Calabrese pizzas and Fettuccini Funghi pasta was excellent. Pasta was cooked perfectly (al dente), sauce was great, light on creme (which was perfect for me) so you can taste the mushroom. Just enough salt to bring out the taste. Had a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc - quite good. No dessert. I understood that the long standing manager has left and some staff departures and that Paese may be falling out of favour by the locals. I've been there many times and I experienced absolutely nothing that would tell me the service nor food has been sub-standard or compromised because of these changes. Will certainly return.
