The service was very good. The pizza was good. My only issue was that the pasta dishes my friend and I ordered had way too much sauce on them - leaving us unable to get a good taste of the actual food.

We haven't been to Paese in several years, and we were not disappointed that we came back. The food & service were very good. All the details taken care of. We ordered off the Winterlicious menu and they were very kind to make some small substitutions for us due to diet.

Their polenta fries are to die for.
We enjoyed the food. I just found it took a long time for the server to took the order after he presented the specials.
Would visit it again for sure.
Thank you.

Food was very salty even after sending it back and re cooking it. Could have been a really good dish but saltiness just killed it. Other than that okay! Not a fan.

I have eaten at Paece many times for both lunch and dinner and have enjoyed the flavor and quality of the food each time. The service is always good. I gave the food four stars instead of five because I find the salad I love is a little small. The reason for my overall and ambience rating above is that I always find it cold in the restaurant. This time I remembered to wear warm layers but I have often eaten with my coat over my shoulders. I have asked for temperature adjustments and sometimes it works but the next time it is the same. I do wish they would adjust this.
