An old house- the atmosphere is bit odd. But the food was delicious and the service great. Front room is nicer, quieter, but feels odd with front door right there. Back room is loud, had the bar, and more casual feel. Generally rather chilly in the back room.

Great place in the middle of campus. Most of the students don't go here because it's a little more expensive. Great for families that are visiting students. We had excellent meal with various pasta dishes. Fillet mignon on top of mushroom risotto was very good .

The food is excellent and worth the wait but their "call ahead" wait list does not work very well. We were there on a chilly evening and the entrance to the restaurant was so crowded with "waiting" guests that diners could not get into or out of the door! Once we finally got seated, our waitress was fabulous and our... More

Nice atmosphere, decent service, food was average. Very small for a large group, but they did accommodate.

Have visited this delightful restaurant many times over the past ten years and it never disappoints. The scallops were outstanding!

We have eaten at Paesanos in Oxford, Ohio many times & have never been disappointed. Yes, it is a small, noisy atmosphere ~ just like your Italian grandmas kitchen table. The food is exceptional just like your grandmas. Riley took great care of us, Drew poured us generous portions of the house red wine & we left happy as can... More

My daughter and I stumbled upon this restaurant while in Oxford visiting the university. The food was excellent as was the service! It's not very fancy inside but it was just what we were looking for! Highly recommend going there for dinner.

The food was great but it was a long wait to get in (told it would only be 20 minutes and it took an hour) and the service was slow. Don't go if you are in a hurry or have other plans.

First visit to Paesano's and it was delicious. I had the seafood pasta dish with 5 different seafood with fettuccine. Angel hair with chicken and broccoli was also very good. Warm bread and oil for dipping was great. Choice of two home made salad dressings. Ranch was very good; wish I'd asked for a bit extra. They open at 5pm.... More

We visited this cute place when we dropped our daughter at college last week. It's a small homey feeling restaurant- nothing fancy. The food was better than I expected! All of us enjoyed our meals! And service was great!
