Stopped in while going through Traverse city because I was craving pizza. They have a great lunch deal with a piece of pepperoni pizza, two breadsticks, and a 16 ounce pop for $4.25. The breadsticks were amazing and the pizza was big but I was really not impressed with it. The staff is extremely friendly with a fun atmosphere. I... More

The pizza is super expensive and frankly.not worth even at half the price. We got the supreme and a gluten free with mushrooms, olives and onions. The gluten free was burnt and dry. The supreme had no flavor and the veggies were huge slices that weren't even cooked. I wouldn't eat here again.

I had pizza here after a Ragnar (overnight running relay) race with 12 people and the pizza was awesome!!! I recommend to any pizza lover. The staff was super accommodating. We were going to eat at the restaurant but then decided to take the pizza to eat at a brewery across the street to watch a sports game. The staff... More

wonderful staff, hard workers, friendly, accommodating. The pizza was nicely made had plenty toppings. A bit pricey, however. Tasted ok, really surprisingly bland. Generous size. Would probably try elsewhere next time.

All three of the employees were exceptionally friendly and on the ball. I always appreciate kindness. I wasn't over impressed with the pizza. Maybe we have always been blessed with having top notch local pizzerias in our respective hometowns. The pizza here was average. I did not like the pepperoni at all. It wasn't a good quality in my opinion.... More

Fast, friendly, and delicious! Our family was looking for a place for a quick lunch. Paesano's was a great pick! We sat outside watching the water while they made our pizza. When it came out it was saucy and cheesy - delicious - without being soggy or greasy. Yummy!

The Chicago style pizza was very good. The price was what you would expect. No A/C! We ate inside and it was hot! But I would eat there again.

We read great reviews only to be disappointed! We ordered the 'traditional' pizza with cheese & sausage, and the bread sticks which were made with a garlic butter and served with dipping sauce. The bread sticks were GREAT! Unfortunately they were WAY better then the pizza itself. The pizza crust didn't have much flavor. The sauce was sweet. The cheese... More

Ordered delivery from Paesano's didn't know what to expect. Pizza came within 30 minutes. All I say is that it was fabulous. We ordered a medium combination pizza and it was spectacular. We had enough for lunch the following day.

We LOVE Paesanos PIzza....and I have two teenaged boys that know PIZZA. The Margarita Pizza is AMAZING and so popular that there have been nights that they have run out of basil. But don't worry...they are some other fantastic flavors. 35 years in Traverse City right downtown...you won't be sorry...If you are looking for pizza this is the place!

Thank Jill E
