Italian
Paesanos sits in the heart of Midtown's Handle District. For over 15 years, Paesanos has been delighting guests with great Italian and eclectic fare at affordable prices. A "go to" for many in the community, Paesanos has established itself as both a neighborhood standby and a special occasion spot. The bustling energy of the busy dining room and aromas of garlic and pizza baking in the brick oven are reminiscent of the urban dining spots in San Francisco's North Beach. Paesanos has something for everyone and rarely disappoints.

    Service was great. We arrived at 8:34 and had our table already set up for us - we didn’t have to wait at all. The waiter was super nice and friendly. Instructions about QR code was clear. The food was in good portions, and they were tasty.

    Service was good, everything was "good" except my dinner. I can't speak for the other 5 in our party although my husband said his pasta/scampi dish was greasy too. I had the spaghetti carbonera and at first bite it was obviously too salty for me as well as greasy/oily. Maybe the bacon made it salty... I don't know but I'll never order it again and maybe just go with a pizza. The service, ambience all fine. Bad night? I am willing to try again one more time.

    The restaurant takes numerous COVID 19 precautions. We ate inside, but there were only 3 tables which were 6+ feet apart and all the windows were wide open with fans circulating air. The waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and super friendly. One of the best places to eat indoors if you are concerned about COVID 19 safety measures being fully enforced.

    The pizza was amazing! The fried ravioli was also excellent. The service was a little bit slow but considering that they were short staffed I give them an A anyway. I did mention that it was my friends birthday but they didn’t bring any kind of celebratory dessert for her.

    Food was mediocre. Overcooked pasta, came out warm not hot. Pricing would suggest either better quality or more quantity but it was neither of the two. Table was cheap and wobbly, tablecloth looked very worn, silverware was wrapped in a plastic bag. Management showed that they were stressed out and did not properly de-escalate with customers that were upset. The street dining was nowhere near as nice as Zocolo across the street that had comparable pricing. Server was friendly and got our order correct—that was probably the only good thing.

    For a Monday night the food was a bit slow to come but the service was excellent. The shrimp scampi was a bit more spicy than I expected. The Bullitt Manhattan from the bar was EXCELLENT. The spinach and arugula salad was also very good. I don't even like arugula but my husband and I were splitting and it was the best!

    Made a reservation for 5 and we were seated quickly. Order a couple appetizers and drinks that were delicious. Ordered a dish that we didn’t realize had anchovies, they were happy to take it back and allow us to reorder an amazing dish. Food and service was great!

    Great Italian food is to be found in Midtown Sacramento. Great and safe outdoor dinner even on a busy Saturday 8 reservation. Our waitress Alicia took great care of us. She deserves her 20% tip. We would definitely come again!
