An old house- the atmosphere is bit odd. But the food was delicious and the service great. Front room is nicer, quieter, but feels odd with front door right there. Back room is loud, had the bar, and more casual feel. Generally rather chilly in...More

Great place in the middle of campus. Most of the students don't go here because it's a little more expensive. Great for families that are visiting students. We had excellent meal with various pasta dishes. Fillet mignon on top of mushroom risotto was very good...More

My daughter and I stumbled upon this restaurant while in Oxford visiting the university. The food was excellent as was the service! It's not very fancy inside but it was just what we were looking for! Highly recommend going there for dinner.

The food was great but it was a long wait to get in (told it would only be 20 minutes and it took an hour) and the service was slow. Don't go if you are in a hurry or have other plans.

First visit to Paesano's and it was delicious. I had the seafood pasta dish with 5 different seafood with fettuccine. Angel hair with chicken and broccoli was also very good. Warm bread and oil for dipping was great. Choice of two home made salad dressings....More

We visited this cute place when we dropped our daughter at college last week. It's a small homey feeling restaurant- nothing fancy. The food was better than I expected! All of us enjoyed our meals! And service was great!
