We had been to the original Paesano's several times over the last 20 years. The food was always great, and the Shrimp Paesano is one of those classic dishes you never forget. This time, we tried the Riverwalk location. The restaurant had pulled all of their sidewalk seating due to rain, and the restaurant was crowded. The Hostess must have... More

This is right on the River Walk. The service was prompt and the food delicious. They had a good variety of food and drinks. Our server was attentive but he did forget to bring us bread. Worth eating at, and they take reservations.

We have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and it is still one of our favorites. Their speciality is the Shrimp Paesano and you must try it. You won't be disappointed!

We have been to Paesano's several times in the past & while not a five star restaurant, it was always a pleasant experience. There were 4 of us this past Sunday night and it was NOT a good experience. The waiter was the main problem, he was rude and as a result both the restaurant & the waiter lost out... More

We were here on a Sunday evening. It was busy but we were seated promptly. Our server was anxious to get our drink order but we had no wine menu. So once that arrived, we placed our order and ten minutes later, he came back for our order. At that point, we were hungry and he assured us he'd bring... More

I had arranged to have lunch with a colleague who has serious food allergies – intolerance to wheat and to dairy products – and I’m vegetarian, so finding somewhere appropriate for both of us was problematic. We liked the environment of Paesanos Ristorante, situated on San Antonio’s River Walk, and it looked upmarket without being over-pricey. The waiters were extremely... More

Since the food was good we decided to try it again. This time two of ordered salads and they didn't come till we... More

We have been to San Antonio twice in the past 9 months for Air Force graduations and each time we made sure we visited Paesano's. The food is delicious and very authentic. This is definitely more "fine dining" but it's completely acceptable to visit the restaurant in casual clothes. Our family loves the lobster bisque and their salads are excellent.... More

After exploring the River Walk for quite a while with no luck finding a restaurant we could both agree on, we came upon Paesano's. Our waiter, Jacob, was delightful, even though he was very new to the job. He recommended the lasagna for my husband; he thought it was excellent. The T-bone steak I had was very flavorful, mashed potatoes... More

This place has good food; everyone in our party enjoyed it. We ate outside and enjoyed the view of the river and the people.
