If you walk in, there is plenty of prepared foods to choose from. The price range is worth what you get. I sometimes order ahead or walk in and wait for my food so I can eat it on the spot hot. I recommend the Calzones. VERY good. And the Pepperoni Roll is great too. I order both with the... More

Paesan's just remolded there Restaurant & reopened last month...nice fresh look. I have always enjoyed all there food especially there pizza. They introdued mini freshly frozen pizzas...3 for $18.99. They are not so mini...good size & just delicious! Great for those who live alone and don't want to order a reg. size pizza....fabulous idea.

Paesan's has some of the best pizza and subs in the area. The pizza is always great and the Italian style subs are excellent as well. They definitely have the best cheese sub. There are five other area locations for this family run operation. This location seems to be consistently busy.

We were traveling and stopped for a late lunch. Friendly cook who took our orders. Pizza was just ok. Nothing special. Sandwiches were not very flavorful and kind of bland.

We've only had food from there twice. I had stopped by there a while back for lunch and the pizza was pretty good so we decided to order an 8 cut for dinner a couple weeks ago. I guess the quality depends on who cooks it, as the pizza we got was slightly under cooked and the dough was kind... More

The quality with Paesan's is never in question. Good crust and sauce and good quality cheese. It's a reliable small chain. It is however, very pricey. I think pushing $20 for a large 1 topping is a bit much. Dinners are simularly pricey and the wings are very tiny. This particular restaurant is a bit on the rough side as... More

I am very fussy about pizza. I used to live in Queens NY and they had wonderful pizza. I finally found a place that has great pizza here in Rensselaer. We usually get the meatball pizza. It is delicious. We have also tried their dinners and subs. All are great. Highly recommended.

Thank hereinny
