Formerly Illiano's, this is now called Paesano's but I believe it is run by the same family. There are a few places in New London who claim to have the best pizza, but if you are looking for true Italian-style, fold-able pizza, this is the only place you will find it. The others have their own 'take' on pizza, and let's face it: most pizza is infallible! Not saying there are no other tasty pizzas in NL, but there is no better in town with the classic powdery bottom and greasy top, too thick to be considered thin crust and just thick enough to satisfy. Their Sicilian is also top notch. The grinders are big, even the small size, and their sides are also tasty, esp the garlic knots and the french fries, which are uniquely crispy. The pasta dishes we've tried are quite good, too... the cheese ravioli, the eggplant, pesto fettucini (could use a little more seasoning) and the baked ziti is good, too. The alfredo used to be a favorite, but lately has been a little too greasy. Luckily, there are tons of choices and they are almost never a disappointment. Service is great to boot, and it's a warm tradition to recieve a small bite to eat when picking up an order, or placing one to go. You really can't beat that, or their pizza!
