The staff was wonderful. Carol greeted us like we were old friends and Michelle took great care of us. We were there for a while catching up with friends but never felt rushed.
And...the food was delicious!

We ate here on a Friday night, the parking lot looked packed, but I was able to secure a reservation and we were seated right away. The place is nicely appointed, with the open ceilings that give it an urban feel, but it also gives it terrible acoustics and it is way too loud! We asked for and were given a quiet table, the table was tucked back around a corner and all we had a view of was the parking lot, but at least we could hear our conversations. The food was good, we had an order of garlic bread and the meat lovers pizza. The pizza tasted good, but was very messy to eat. I’m not sure if it was too much sauce or perhaps too much grease from all the meats, but we all went through numerous napkins trying to keep our hands clean. I would return here as we did enjoy ourselves, but will try something different to eat next time.

Super friendly service! We also never feel rushed no matter how busy the restaurant is. Good Italian food .. we had 3 different pasta dishes / sauces and none of them were dense and heavy like they tend to be. Paisans is one of our go to places in the area.

The service is good, but the food is hit or miss. Some was outstanding (e.g., the bombolas -- fried meatballs), some was wretched (e.g., ziti -- the sauce had an awful smell with the taste to match). This is the third time we've been to Paisans, and this most recent experience is consistent with the other two. There are too many other, far superior, restaurants in the area, so we'll not give Paisans a fourth try...

Sun 4/7 4pm reservation, seated immediately. Restaurant was empty. Great place for pizza. Thought we’d change it up and ordered burgers. Big mistake total disappointment! Ordered medium, Mine was served rare more towards the raw side. Just left and munched on the fries. Next time will know better.

Burgers are great. Fries need help. Wings and pizza are solid. The server was exceptional. Great neighborhood joint with nice ambiance - family friendly and energetic noise level. Will definitely come again for the burgers and beer.

The food was mediocre at best and our server was clearly overwhelmed, unfriendly and unapologetic. Unfortunately, we will not be back. There are too many other good restaurants in the area.

Our food took almost an hour to arrive and both my husbands and my meals were wrong! Our waiter didn’t come back at all to check in or update and we had to wave him down for refills...we will not be returning!

Never disappoints. Sandwiches and entree's are excellent. Pizza is among the best, if not the best, in the Naperville/Lisle area. One thing Paisan's does is they put plates of each daily special by the hostess desk instead of having the wait staff explain them to you. Many times I've chosen my meal based on the attractiveness of these entree's. It can get a little noisy in the low table area of the restaurant at peak times. Quieter if you ask for a high table towards the front of the restaurant.
