    First let me state that my 2 rating is a reflection solely on management. We had a reservation, we were seated promptly, had fabulous service from Nathan and enjoyed the food very much. However, in the inside seating there are about 25% of the tables that should be removed. It is ridiculously overcrowded. We were jostled continuously during our dinner pretty much cancelling out the excellent service and good food. The waitstaff were apologetic but it was ridiculous. We will never go back there.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Waitstaff was polite, welcoming, and helpful with menu questions. Cocktails were excellent. I highly recommend the Blood Orange margarita. Good quality olive oil served with delicious warm bread. Oven roasted meatballs were a wonderful and filling appetizer. We shared a margarita pizza and had plenty to box up. Portions were generous. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

    Food and service was very good, however after offering us crème brûlée for dessert they ended up being out of it. We were very disappointed. Not a dealbreaker though, still very good.

    our server was horrible. he didn't refill waters or ask for refill on cocktails. I reserved for my daughter's birthday and he hurried us through and ignored the Birthday request. We were very disappointed to say the least. would not recommend that server to anyone!!!!

    We sat on the covered patio for a dinner date and birthday trip to San Antonio. We had a 7 pm reservation but we’re easily sat at 5 pm as we wanted to eat earlier due to our schedule on a Friday night. We had a great warm greeting and thoughtful recommendations from our server whom seemed like an old friend with his great personality. We both were happy with everything we ordered including the shrimp appetizer, garlic bread, stuffed shells and fettuccine alfredo with chicken. We did not have enough room for desserts but they looked amazing. We will have to come back for this as well! We highly recommend this place and getting back out on the Riverwalk in San Antonio if you are considering making this trip at all then you should since you will NOT be disappointed!!! Now is the time!!!

    Our party of four enjoyed the outdoor dining. Calm night. Server very helpful. The food was good but not quite the same quality as the other two Paesano’s locations but still good. Will probably dine here again if we are downtown.

    Pasta was delicious. Bread was still raw in the middle. Service was pretty bad, forgot our salads and always had to flag someone down for a refill. Ambiance was just ok….very crowded but probably just because it was a holiday weekend. I would go back and give it another try because the food was great.

    It was a Friday nite, day before New Year's Eve, they were very busy. There was a minor issue. We had ordered Veal Marsala, and not noticing right away, it turned out to be chicken by mistake. After calling the attention to the server, he had the manager come out who was very apologetic and threw in a free dessert. Since we had already eaten most of the meal, didn't want to make too big a deal, and could not have eaten much more anyway. They did their best to make it right, so we were happy. Even though busy, the service was excellent.

    Shrimp Paesano tasted like it had too much flour on the coating. The asparagus was huge, but color was bad & some of the stalks had not heads on them. Our server was very good!

    We had a wonderful time eating on the riverwalk at Paesanos! Brandon was a wonderful server and helped us with anything we needed. The food was delicious and fairly medium to large portions. We had a reservation so they seated us at the table as soon as we reached the door. There is a long line and a long waiting list so make sure to have a reservation. They did forget to give us utensils but the restaurant was busy and the service was excellent.

    Horrible Christmas dinner. Literally it was a waste of my time going all the way downtown to paesano’s. My ribeye steak was very rubbery even though it was a medium tempt. When I tried to cut my steak my whole plate would move. Very disappointing. My friend couldn’t even chew through her own Ribeye because it was so fatty and rubbery. Like bubble gum. Bad quality. I will never find at this location again.

    Our boys don’t consider a trip to San Antonio complete without a meal at Paesano’s, and it is consistently good food. On this particular visit for dinner on Christmas day, our waiter Julian made it even better. Excellent service and attitude. My son wanted to try a new dish and his recommendation of the crab stuffed salmon was spot on.
