Paesano Restaurant was first established in 2002 by restaurant owners, Frank Capuzzi and Angelo Lomonaco. The Paesano Restaurant success is built on the foundations of friendly service, quality home style authentic Italian cuisine and great value for money. Our gnocchi, fettuccine, lasagne and tiramisu are made daily on site by Franks mother Clara, whom at age 5, began learning recipes originating from the 19th Century that had been handed down over the generations. The menu is classic Italian however, we also offer modern & contemporary alternatives like our Stone Grill, which is a unique dining experience featuring volcanic graphite heated to a sizzling 400° Celsius so you can grill your meat the way you like it. We pride our menu on local fresh fresh produce, whether it is freshly made pasta, ocean fresh oysters, or fish fresh from the market daily. Paesano is fully licensed with wines sourced from Italy to local Australian regions. Our bar staff are also happy to shake things up, with our own signature cocktails…. Paesano is the ideal spot for a quick bite between shopping adventures or before a movie. We cater for all special occasions whether it is a date for two or a function for 200. Paesano Restaurant Knox will always cater to your specific requirements. We have an easily accessible venue, located in the Westfield Shopping Centre at Shop 2218 Town Walk Knox Ozone, Burwood Highway, Wantirna South with ample parking.
