We ate here a few years ago, and our experience was not positive, but it this time it was very good. We were greeted by our server who had a server-in-training with her. We were brought a nice bottle of Cabernet, along with some huge...More

First, kudos to our waitress Chelsea, who was prompt and attentive. She kept the meal moving, but we never felt rushed. My husband had Paisano’s Chicken and I had Eggplant Parmesan. The dinners came with hot fresh bread and a cold crisp salad. We each...More

Three of us started with a couple of starters. Fried Mushrooms and fried calamari were both lightly battered and fired perfectly. The waitress was excellent, very attentive and friendly. The entrees were also the best of our three meals in Lexington. Great job! We had...More

This well tucked- away restaurant reminding you of ones in the movies with the theme of the Mafia. The service is excellent and the food authentic. This restaurant has been in business since 1984 and that tells the story.

the restaurant was out dated and musty. The sauce was very salty. The bread was good and the people were very friendly. Good service... but not good food.

Good, Tuscan-style food in a homey atmosphere. Wines are not over-priced, service is quite good and friendly. These people have been in business a long time; the chef may visit you at your table.

Liz , our server, was very sweet and accommodating. Something was amiss with the Alfredo sauce... either from a mix/jar or too much garlic salt..... probably just an off night as we have had great meals here before.
