The food is always good at Paisano's. My biggest complaint is that I would classify them as a mom and pop restaurant (which is a good thing) however it seems lately that they are trying to be a high-end restaurant which just does match their...More

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.

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,...More
