I wish I had found this place years ago. Great authentic Italian food. Hot from the oven and fresh flavors! I'm really picky about tomato sauce and this sauce was spot on. Fresh Italian rolls accompany the meal. If you can't decide, get the sampler player, you won't be disappointed. I got the chicken Marsala. It was very good.

Great small restaurant. All the food is fresh prepared, and the flavors reflect it. The owner is super nice and very helpful. A must try little place.

Old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs is a classic. Upscale service at a good price. Never too crowded.

Never disappoints! Fresh rolls, homemade sauce, comfy atmosphere. Salads are scant, so get the soup. You won't be sorry. All entrees I've tried are delicious. Family owned and it shows.

Good atmosphere and good food. Enjoyed the veal Marsala and minestrone soupa. I do not like the rolls they serve - too hard, cold and heavy. Would do much better to do away with them and serve up nice Italian loaves. Service is spotty. Still, I will go back for the food.

We have not been to Paisano's for quite awhile, mainly because it's tucked away in a little shopping area and I kept forgetting about it. My wife and I wanted a quite place for a mean this popped into my head. I can say that it will not be as long before we go back because the food was excellent.... More

We went for a quiet date night/birthday weekend. The restaurant was quiet and uncrowded. We had an excellent waiter who has been with the restaurant for an extended amount of time. Hubby got the chicken penne Alfredo and I got the pasta shells. Both were delicious and very well priced. The tiramisu was fantastic! Before tip the bill came to... More

The atmosphere was very good for enjoyment of the food and conversation. Tony, bartender and host could not have been more helpful and a delight to carry on a conversation about the food and restaurant. Our food was delicious and hot and good presentation. It has been a while since there but brought back to mind how super place it... More
