I went there on Thursday with some friends. The food was good, and so was the wine. The dessert was delicious. It was like a cake with pistachios. Yummy.

Really liked this restaurant in "Little Italy" (only a few restaurants in "Little Italy"). The food was great, but it can be very noisy and the parking is very limited. We took Uber which worked out well. Check to see if the Sharks are playing...More

I had the Veal Parmigiana. It was fine, but nothing I would run back and have again. They had a wonderful array of deserts and the service was excellent. The prices seemed high for a restaurant with a TV blaring during dinner.

Went to Paesano's for the first time tonight. What a delicious and delightful experience! I love going out to a relaxing dinner; not some chain restaurant where they heard you in and out like cattle. Paesano's was small but inviting. We were greeted immediately and...More

So I have started a campaign of derating any resturant where the owner keeps the resturant uncomfortably cool, in hopes others will do the same and instigate a wave of change in these establishments. I am glad to say that the Paesano was pleasantly comfortable....More

Lovely front porch feel, in spite of a larger, busier road on the side of the restaurant. But the porch itself faces a quiet street, and is quite nice on a warm evening
