Excellent meal with very attentive service. We had a variety incl. the french fries to start with the house bread & humus, the daily special butternut squash soup (very hearty), another daily special the osso buco with mashed potatoes & green beans (generous portion, very tender and filling) and shared hazelnut gelato, mixed berry sorbet and tiramisu with Paese special coffee & regulars to top it off. Another great night at Paese! Thank you!

Every visit is a discovery of another outstanding dish. This time the fettuccine Fresca knocked it out of the park. This was another outstanding service and meal. Thank you! I'll be back!

Our family really enjoyed our experience at Paese. I was surprised we didn't try this place early ..everything from the food to the service ( even my 8 year old agreed ) was amazing. Will definitely be going back to dine here

The best customer service! He made sure everything was going well with our food. Food was pretty good! The charred octopus was my fav. Def a bit pricey for the size and quality of the food.

We’ve been here numerous times before and food is generally good but this time it appears that the pasts had been sitting under the hot lamp too long. Outer tiges of the sauce had dried up leaving the tomato sauce overall dry.

I have a fatal food allergy and have trusted PAESE, their chef and staff, for many years, to feed me safely. I carry a card with the allergies listed which goes to the chef every time I eat there. Specifically Sabine and Derek are my "GO TO" waiters who always take good care of me. It's a pleasure to be there in their new heated outdoor patio. The food is presented beautifully and delicious & I look forward to every meal. Thank you all attentive staff.
