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

Delicious Italian food. We usually order the same items because we love them, but they had some specials recently so we tried them and they were terrific. Butternut squash ravioli in a rose sauce, salmon and tiliapia in delicious sauces. We have enjoyed many items...and loved them all, egg plant parm, pasta and shrimp, pizza, etc. so glad there was a 2 for 1 special and we now have more favourites on our list to eat here,,, it will be so hard to choose next time. We will have to come more often!! Take out and delivery only for now.More

This has fast become one of my favourite places to eat. It is not very large and is very crowded on weekends and holidays so having a reservation is a good idea. The food is mainly italian based and is extremely reasonable in price. I...don't think there is much on the menu over $22. You get plenty to eat and I always leave overstuffed. The service is very good. Parking is sometimes an issue, especially on the weekends, so you may have to park at the back of the plaza and walk to the doors which is a fair distance, especially if you have any issues getting around.More

Hey!! Who doesn’t like Italian food in a classic setting?? Cucina Di Paisano has been around for 50 year s and has two locations in the NorthYork area. I was out with the crew from work for a business lunch. Our table was amazed at...the elegance of the place and mesmerized by the aromas they were taking in. Our gracious host took his time helping each one of us select dishes that matched their taste buds. We started with some antipasto and a platter of garlic shrimp grilled calamari bruschetta and garlic bread as we made our through the appetizers and a bottle or two of Italian wine it was time to order the main courses. I have to admit, I had a really hard time deciding as there were so many great dishes to choose from. With the help of my server, I ordered the insanely delicious shrimp marinara with black tiger shrimp in a white wine garlic tomato sauce with penne pasta and veggies on the side. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their food and it a testament to Cucina di Paisano and their staff and the dedication they have to keep the food and vibe as authentic as possible while delivering excellent food!! You know we will be back!!More
