We went there for lunch for the last day of business. They sold the business to micro-brewery beer. They used to locate in a hidden spot of No. 3 Road and made a good choice to move to Steveston Village with a patio in the summer. We enjoyed their appertizers and pasta. I felt in love with their seafood spaghetti... More

One of my regular haunts, when I'm in Richmond. Very good food (including the best spaghetti I've ever had)...rushed, understaffed service...cramped and noisy seating...but still a high recommendation.

This is a wonderful spot that has operated for 35 years, but unfortunately, we discovered it will close permanently later this month (May 2016). Such a shame - every dish is wonderful, and the people are great. This time we had the Antipasti Platter to start, and it was the best I've had - included both hot and cold portions.... More

The service is excellent (efficient and cheerful). The food is good but I've had better. The ravioli that I ordered, while it was good enough, did not compare to the ravioli that I had had a week earlier in Saskatoon. The problem was that the price seemed a bit high for what we actually received. Not that we were being... More

Paesano's always takes great care of our family. They were great making sure their linguine carbonara was peanut free (younger daughter has a peanut allergy), and even split the pasta between my two daughters, with a larger portion for my older one. The veal Milanese was crisp and well seasoned. The gnocchi was extremely tender, and there was a very... More

Too much expensive, too less food. We were there in 3 people and we order 3 dishes. One caprese salad , one lasagna and one chicken parmigiana . They taste good but it wasn't food enough for us. The drink is not refillable and they don't offer bread. The waitress was new and made a lot of mistakes. And in... More

Went here for the Valentines Day special a 5 course meal with a complimentary glass of champagne (more like a 1/2 glass of sparkling wine one had to ask for!) The food and presentation were both disappointing at best. More like something that was thrown together to make profit from a special event. Bruschetta is the easiest thing to make... More

We started off with the Caesar Salad for two, I think this was good. I have to asked for some fresh ground pepper, but the dressing was good. The croutons were not made on the premisses. Next came the bruschetta, this was not what you might expect. It was like a pizza and it was not good. I was a... More

We had lunch here. The total cost for 2, with no appies, dessert or alcohol: $49. Does this seem like too much money for mediocre Italian food? Especially when one of the meals was caprese salad and bread and the other a half a trout and some pasta in red sauce? You bet. The salad, typically including basil, had none... More

I'm a 50 yr old male who's family is from Northern Italy just 20 minutes to the North of Venice. My Nona's meat sauce (and several other dishes) was simply phenomenal. I return every year to enjoy the culture, the people, the views, the food & the wine of various regions within Italy. I tell you this because the meat... More
