There were 3 of is, and two ordered pizzas. You cannot really go wrong on them here, IMO. I however, was not that hungry, and ordered the Vegetable Tart, an appetizer. Now I maybe read the menu wrong, I thought it would be made with puff pastry. It should have been. Instead. It was on an unremarkable piece of bread.... More

Our waiter Joseph was definitely one of the most professional I've ever come across. He really knew his menu and helped to define the best items for the evening. The Manhattan Clam Chowder was an Italian style and the pan seared Georgia sea scallops were to die for. I would highly recommend trying this restaurant. Oh yes, the wine list... More

This was my second visit in about 8 years. Both times we had really good food. Truth be told, not the most original or innovative, but always good. We had traditional stuff, pasta dishes, etc., and they were great portions and we had leftovers that reheated well. Wine list was nice and not too pricey. All in all, for the... More

This is the definition of a hidden gem. My parents moved to Seneca from Greenville, SC several years ago, and it seemed that we were going to kiss authentic Italian food goodbye. I was sorely mistaken. Not only is Paesano's an excellent family-owned Italian restaurant for the Seneca/Clemson area, it may be one of the best restaurants in the state.

Hard to beat this local gem with excellent Italian fare. Menu is extensive and the wine list is adequate and reasonable! Kids menu has lots of good choices for all ages. Bring your appetite - the portions are very generous! We have eaten here dozens of times and are never disappointed

My family has been dining here for over twenty years. For the area the food is great. Great service and friendly staff. Always an easy choice in the Seneca area. Would recommend to everyone.

Much improved, ambitious menu with excellent fish snd meat selections (ask for sauces on side) beyond myriad Italian entrees. Has a loyal following and weekends are packed with visitors. No Rez required unless you are a bigger party. Space is dated, bar table tops looked like a good choice and music was perfect backdrop. Oysters on half shell excellent and... More

I get the feeling this place was great in its day but has lost its way. The servers need training, were poor attentive wise and not dressed specifically well. Took too long to get food and they don't serve your wine - you poor your own. The garlic not rolls were dry and cold; bit hard really, and the Italian... More

Of course, I have quite a bit of Italian in me so it being family like comes pretty natural. I often fine and drink in the bar room... Jay is an outstanding bartender that really knows his wines and takes a personal interest in serving you a great meal. This is not an inexpensive place to spend the evening, but... More
