Wonderful service and fabulous food! I had the crab cakes appetizer (nice crispy coating) and then baked cannelloni. My husband gobbled down a large lamb osso buco with goat cheese polenta. Save room for dessert - we had a very creamy (and large) cheesecake, warm...More

I was recommended by a friend to go here (not the one on the river walk) and try their signature dinner, Shrimp Paesano. It was very good! 5 very large shrimp, lightly breaded and fried and swimming in a plate filled with a creamy butter/lemon...More

If you want absolutely fantastic calamari, visit Paesanos! The order was very good & very generous. My Shrimp Paesano was also incredibly scrumptious! The jumbo shrimp were prepared just right, & the sauce was light & delicious! Of course, the fruit & nut bread (that...More

Everyone had nice plates, and we had great outdoor service. The spot this restaurant is in is really nice on the River Walk. It's worth your time.

The dish I had was very good and the atmosphere was nice. The service was highly disappointing though. The waiter was not at all attentive, did not ask us how our meal was, did not ask if we wanted another drink, etc.

The food was very delicious. The service was timely, friendly and impeccable. The Calamari was the best I've ever eaten. The stuffed snapper was out of this world. All in all... this restaurant hit it out of the park :)
