Paesano's is a very nicely decorated Italian restaurant, larger inside that it looks from the front. It's also on the more expensive side, which is what you would expect judging from the décor. Service was very good and friendly, as was the whole staff. My only disappointment was the food. Portions were generous. Presentation was very nice. But, the taste... More

Enjoyed their Paesano salad and their huge special of the day, 13 oz porterhouse steak with shrimp scampi. Their veal or chicken sorenntino with rigatoni is also excellent. Their portions are large so we had the leftovers for dinner the next night. Service is consistently very good and attentive. Highly recommend if your in the Pearl City/Aiea area.

The food is consistently delicious and the service is always personable and attentive. I alway enjoy the veal sorentino with ziti. Tender veal topped with cheese and eggplant. There's a $25 corkage if you bring your own wine. Will continue to eat there.

There's only two other Italian in the area so they compete with Bravo and Ricados. None of them are in the same price range so this basically leave them as the only mid end Italian in the area. By default they are the place to go. We went here with my parents to celebrate the long weekend. Wife ordered some... More

Excellent restaurant with a staff of workers to match. You get a friendly welcome when you enter and the staff is very attentive to your needs. The bread is made in house and is crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside. The butter is rock hard but they will zap it for you if you want. Their... More

Paesano Restorante has very good food. We were very tired and decided to stop in, late afternoon, and get take out to enjoy at our BnB. They were very accommodating and did not take more then 20 - 25 minutes.They gave us more than we actually expected plus containers that we could actually microwave with out ruining anything. The restaurant... More

Three of us met for a 1230pm lunch. The atmosphere was clean, neat and well maintained. As usual for us, we ordered drinks and appetizers to start - crab cakes with an aioli sauce, calamari and mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce. Not great, but not bad. For lunch we all ordered the Seafood Fettuccini Special... now THAT was a great... More

Ambiance is very good for a restaurant in the suburbs of Honolulu. Service is excellent and their food is always excellent no matter what you order. What I liked best is service by the waiters.
