I've gone here many times late at night for good, solid pizza slices and the Jamaican patties. A basic place, some places to sit, decent midtown location.

In town to visit RPI with my son and after a long day of traveling I was starving. Paesan's wasn't far from my hotel so I decided to give it a try. I was disappointed either, pizza was hot and good, it's a lot of pizza places in Albany but I'm glad I found this one.

Paesan's earns its reputation as one of Albany's best pizza places. Their takeout service is fast and their pizzas are topped with generous portions of whatever you choose. Typical bare bones ambiance, but Hey, it's a pizza place.

Some of the best wings outside of Buffalo! Pizza was delicious! We did take out, but there is seating too!

I work in the city and often swing through here for a quick slice and it is always delicious. If my son is craving a antipasto salad I order take out and it always so fresh. My co-workers frequent this establishment as well - so swing through, you won't be disappointed!

Not sure which Paesan's location we went to. We are Chicagoans who lived in NY for about 10 years and got hooked on NY white pizza with broccoli. We can't find a good version anywhere in Chicago (which is either about huge stuffed deep dish or super thin Neapolitan-style pizza). We were in Albany visiting our son at college and... More

Tried several pizza places in area before and turned out not so good pizza. Tried them and it was very good. Would definitely order from there again

A bunch of us decided to order a couple of pizzas late on a Saturday night. We were told 40 minutes before delivery. To our surprise 30 minutes later our pizzas were delivered and they were HOT! You would have thought we just took them out of the oven. They were very good....

I do realize that this restaurant is now a local chain, but when I say chain I mean Pizza Hut, Domino's or Papa John's. This is my number one pick for best local pizza in the Capital Region. I have been a huge fan for about ten years now since someone introduced me to the Albany restaurant. Fortunately this restaurant... More
