    Despite reservations a week ahead we were given a table next to the kitchen access. Menu was disappointing.

    We ordered a Sicilian pizza. It was great. Bartender made great cocktails. Our waiter was very busy as they looked a bit understaffed however he was very cordial. I will go again.

    Our first outing to dine since the pandemic began. Paesanos is one of our favorite places to eat. We ate outside at one of their tables on their patio. It was lovely. The service was outstanding. Great staff. The food was great too. We will be back soon!

    Will you still love coming to this location for dinners before walking around downtown. However, the booth seats were uncomfortable, and it felt like the tables were high because the booth seats were in need of replacement. Also, The table top was so sticky that it peeled off some of the artwork on one of my sons phone cases. The service was fantastic and the food good; the furniture just needs replacing.

    We had an amazing experience and server Riley B was wonderful with us. Our toddler loved her pizza and ate more than half of it, my steak salad was on point with a Hibiscus ginger sparkler you couldn’t go wrong, my wife enjoyed her chicken sandwich and will definitely come back. Thank you Paesanos and thanks Riley B.

    Our group of 5 people for lunch was seated inside at a table that was well-distanced from other tables for COVID safety. The selection of salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes was perfect for our lunch; everyone enjoyed their order. The servers were very attentive. We'll definitely come back for another lunch or dinner experience.

    We had a fantastic time celebrating my birthday with a party of 6. The server (forgot his name) was wonderful, checking up on us often and even taking a few pictures for us. The ambiance was very warm and modern. I loved the lights and plants inside. The tables were spread out all around the cafe, providing a safe place to dine-in during COVID. The food was phenomenal. The Polenta fries were definitely my favorite. My friends and I really enjoyed our experience at Paesanos-Davis.

    Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the restaurant was at 50% capacity. This helped with the overcrowding (which used to be a problem) and the noise level. It was still noisy, but not annoying to the point of not being able to carry on a conversation. After more than a year of not going to any restaurants, this was a treat—entrees & desserts were fabulous.

    We are regulars (or were) at Paesanos and are glad to be able to return. The food was always a good value for the money and the servers always did a great job. We are big fans of being able to make a reservation and hope this policy continues as we get back to "normal."

    Overall experience was great. The only disappointment was the time it took to get our wine with dinner. Two glasses were ordered when our order was taken and they were brought out nearly towards the end of the meal. The reason for the delay was due to wine glasses being washed. This made no sense. Overall the food was great. I would recommend the fried ravioli or spaghetti carbonara.

    It was wonderful to be able to eat INSIDE Paesanos! It seemed like we were back to some form of normalcy. We were taken right in and seated very safely at a table big enough for our party of 4 adults and 2 kids. The clear plastic shower curtains hanging between us and other parties was a constant reminder that we aren't "in Kansas anymore," and the noise level was just as high as when the restaurant is packed (the background music was way too loud!), but we didn't really mind. It was just so good to be out--eating on real plates rather than having our food served in a take-out box! And the food was delicious as always.

    Reserved a table for my husband's birthday dinner on a Friday. We sat inside, but they do offer a lot of outdoor seating as well. I ordered the cauliflower pappardelle, my husband ordered the baked pasta and my father-in-law ordered the prawn scampi. All were so so delicious and tasted fresh. For an appetizer, we ordered the gorgonzola gnocchi and that was creamy, rich and fantastic. Our server was very pleasant and it was a nice birthday meal. Will be back soon.
