We were in Toronto from Sarnia staying at the Pan Pacific directly across from this restaurant. Looked on line for reviews and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. From the time we were seated, ate our meal and watched the staff...work as a team, it was awesome. Our waiter was Calvin, who is amazing. He has been at this restaurant which is not a franchise for 9 years. It says a lot for the owners as well. Calvin was great; made great menu recommendations. We enjoyed Caesar salad, meatballs and spaghetti and chicken parmigiana. All was fantastic.....even took leftovers back to Sarnia the portions were so large! Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome, Calvin. We would definitely recommend everyone try this gem!More

There were 23 attendees. We were set up in a private area of the restaurant. The room was set up perfectly so people could stand, sit and mingle. Each person ordered for themselves and all said the food was delicious. The staff were very caring...and did an outstanding job. I can't recommend Paisano highly enough. Thank you.More

It was my first time here. Calvin, the server, such a pleasure! All by myself on the patio. Food delicious! Attention to every detail. Such a wonderful surprise for a spot with a parking lot patio. I will be back! A great way to end...a stressful day at work!More

Great food, amazing service. Waiter went out of his way to get our names, remember and use them. Food was out in 10 minutes tops. Cosmopolitan was chilled and strong. Overall great service and better people. If I am ever in the area I will...be back. Also reasonable prices.More

Atmosphere is pleasant. I loved the brick and stone walls. While the restaurant was not too busy, it was quieter than expected. Slightly soft lighting made it feel warm and welcoming. Service is excellent. Our server, Calvin, learned our names and referred to us by...them for the rest of the night. He always made sure our drinks were filled and asked if there was anything that would make our visit better. This was our first time visiting, and Calvin pointed out popular options on the menu, and his suggestions were spot on. Food was great, albeit a touch expensive. The escargot was a treat, the garlic bread was delicious, and the meatballs had the perfect texture combination of spices. A significant number of vegetarian options are available, which is nice to see. Food was brought out in a very timely manner. We were visiting from the States, and it seemed like all payment methods were accepted - even Discover, which wasn't commonly accepted during the rest of our trip. I highly recommend Cucina di Paisano, and if Calvin is your server, you're in for a great experience.More

We went here on Saturday for a date night and we’re blown away with the service (Calvin) and the food. Everything was fresh, flavourful and homemade. Will definitely come back!

I scheduled a 2pm pickup for my fiancé. When he got there meal wasn’t ready even at quarter past 2. He left and returned to pick up the meal at a later time only for the restaurant manager to claim that someone had picked up...the meal. Poor customer service overall. I wouldn’t recommend.More

We went there for a celebratory dinner because they have a patio and the reviews were good. Our server Alfred was outstanding: attentive but never intrusive. I began the meal with mussels, which were smaller than usual. The sauce was very garlicky but still not...terrific. My main of shrimps and scallops in marinara sauce was undistinguished. Too much tomato paste? My tiramisu was ok but not really authentic. My friends agreed that we would not go back.More
