For over 15 years, Paesanos has been delighting guests with great Italian and eclectic fare.

We have a great patio for outdoor dining.

We had been wanting a night out and decided on paesanos. Their patio was really beautiful and they had heat lamps to compensate for it being cold out. We got a pitcher of sangria, fettuccine Alfredo, and fettuccine aristitti. Delicious.

You must try the lemon ricotta bread appetizer. House-made and completely delicious. In the new COVID world, it's wonderful outdoor dining complete with heaters make it feel almost normal. And I love its not a big chain restaurant. Would rather spend my $ on small businesses like this one

I always enjoy eating at Paesanos. They are super gluten free friendly and the chicken sandwich on a gluten free baguette with a lovely green salad was delicious!

AMAZING food. This is our new favorite spot. Definitely a place to do the whole nine yards... get an appetizer, a salad, an entree, and a dessert. Our server was great, just very busy. Indoors it was a little loud. The outdoor area is charming, covered, and includes heat lamps. Highly recommend.

Kayla was outstanding, super patient and allowed me the space I needed to get work done while enjoying a delicious salad. Can’t remember the name of it but it was spinach and arugula maple vinaigrette that was hands down the best dressing I’ve ever had! Bacon and candied walnuts and goat cheese

Covid19 Restrictions so the inside dining room was maybe 50% full of normal.

This was a Sunday 5pm reservation and we were seated easily at 5:10 as my friend got stuck in traffic.

Our female server was very nice, patient, and attentive. My friends Grilled Chicken sandwich was good she said. My Margherita pizza was disappointing. I've had this at this location before, but this pie was undercooked as there was no crunch to the bottom crust. It was also short on toppings. It seemed like there was "just enough" cheese to cover the pizza, a few tomato slices, and limited basil. Overall the pizza was underwhelming.

I will chalk this poor experience up to covid, sunday, etc. I've probably eaten at this location 30x over the years, and the midtown location 10x, and know this company can do much better.

If this happens again I will not return as a basic Round Table pizza would have been far more satisfying.

The service was poor. We ordered an appetizer, received it, and ate it before our server took our food order. She didn’t come to offer more water or ask for another drink. She was not very friendly.

Met a friend for lunch. We were seated promptly in the outdoor patio, ordered the arugula and farmer's market salads from the contact-free menu, and received good service from our waiter. Salads were fresh and delicious.

Seater went to see if table was sanitized. He just ran his hand over the table and called it good. There were a lot of crumbs on the seats so I’m guessing yeah not too sanitized.
Ordered food. They were out of a few things. Had to tweak my dietary restrictions because of it.
Food was good - a little Luke warm . Ambience was ok- bathrooms were a little dirty.
I still go back to this place despite the things that always seem to occur. I just wish they’d up their game.

Our server was oblivious to social distancing and when at our table he stood way too close for safety and comfort. The baked pasta is good and always comes out hot hot.
The outside tables are spaced out to allow for social distancing among guests.

They made a nice outdoor patio but since we brought our infant (for a 315pm lunch) they sat us at a wobbly table outside of their shaded patio, next to the door to the restaurant and the benches where people wait to be called if they didn’t make a reservation. People without masks walked by us for the entire meal and everyone who arrived at the restaurant during our stay were seated in the nice patio. This restaurant is not family friendly and we will not be visiting it again.
