    The ambience was fabulous. We got there a little before lunch crowd. I ordered the soul and my daughter ordered a Panini. I asked for the soul on vegetables instead of the pasta and a house salad with no dressing. The soul arrived on top of a garden salad

    Paesano’s was PERFECT!!!! I haven’t had cacio e pepe this good since I was in Italy. The muscles were also to die for. The sauce was perfectly seasoned. Everything was perfect and the service was great. The ambience inside is adorable with the plants hanging.

    A return trip to NYC. Last time we visited NYC was 2017. We enjoyed Little Italy in the past,,so we decided to go to Little Italy and have dinner at Paesano’s on Mulberry St. To be truthful, we rate Paesano’s a 5 out of 10. Chicken Marsala was very weak. The sauce was mostly chicken broth. The Italian wine was very bland. Our CC was not returned to us after paying for our dinner, so we had to return to the restaurant the next day to retrieve our CC.

    We ate outside during a trip to NYC. Food was great; outside tables were not elegant, but didn’t detract from the food or service.

    A little too warm in the restaurant to enjoy the food. The air conditioning needs to be improved. We chose to eat inside on a very hot day - no better inside than outside!

    We had dinner at Paesano's last night and what a wonderful experience it was. First of all, we were a party of 5 for 6pm, and requested a round table. When we got there, the efficient host lead us directly to a round table, which was great for our conversations (this was our yearly college reunion among long time friends). The entire staff was so polite and could not do enough for us. Everything from our appetizers, salads (Caesar salad was big enough to share and was just so good), to our entrees (yes, the Rigatoni with Vodka sauce was as good as advertised) made this evening an outstanding success. This was the first time we were at this restaurant, and all I can say is that we will be back very soon. I am from Philadelphia, and our city has a great neighborhood of Italian restaurants, but it was definitely worth the trip for the evening to NYC to have dinner at Paesano's.

    Food dry and over cooked. When I checked in I said it is my grandsons bday. They said great! Does he like cake. Said yes, chocolate. They brought him a slice and charged 8 bucks. They lead me to believe it was free.

    Out-of-towners visiting the city and picked your restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. Pricing was reasonable by NY standards and the food was good. We loved the decor and ambiance. The server was not horrible, just not great. Seemed indifferent and uninterested. Otherwise, a perfect evening.

    The gluten free pasta was immaculate. I ordered the penne a la vodka and I’ll be dreaming of it forever. So so good. Service was fantastic, every waiter from the restaurant had come over to the table at least once. So kind and helpful. The food was absolutely incredible.

    I remember my first experience here years ago being wonderful, hence my desire to bring my wife on my 50th birthday. Our waiter was friendly, professional, zipped around the room like he's been there for years. He did disappear at times though, making it uncomfortable to move onto the next step in our experience. Ambiance was busy - nice to see. Frankly, the food was the culprit here. My chicken scarp was bland, overcooked (the chicken & sausage) and had no potatoes (maybe they make it without pots?). My wife's carbonara had a LOT of cream. Stuffed mushrooms were frozen or old, not fresh. We support restaurants as much as we can but I must say I was disappointed on such a special evening. We didn't even order dessert. I am sorry to say it felt like a tourist trap vs the authentic Italian restaurant I knew years ago.

    Food good quite cheap too! Service good Only downside was had a table booked but when we arrived everyone seemed to so had to queue in the doorway for around 20 mins. They deffo over book so it ends up busy I’d recommend getting there earlier than reservation in order to ensure you sit down on time.
