My office just conducted a fabulous annual holiday luncheon at this Paesanos. We had 75 people sequestered comfortably in the lovely Solarium. The setting allowed for privacy, intimacy and a scenic golf course. The food, service and ambiance exceeded all expectations. This is a perfect place for a team celebration!

Today with business friends for dinner in this Italian restaurant. Service was good and fast. Food was average. It is localized to American food. Nice decorated and a good place for informal dinner.

My wife and I met some friends for lunch and what a pleasant surprise. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious and the location was great, right next to the Quarry Golf Course. We had the Calamari appetizer which was not the traditional small pieces of squid with tentacles. This was a Squid steak cut into large pieces battered... More

I think this is the best of the three locations in San Antonio. The food is delicious and the special Paesano salad, their breads and their desserts should not be missed. Always ask to sit in the main part of the restaurant.

I walked aimlessly looking for a place to eat. I was alone. There were so many people and restaurants were jammed. Although I wanted to sit outside I saw a place at the bar at Paesano's and sat. I was in one of my I don't know what I want to eat moods . Anyway I had an appetizer and... More

First visit to Paesanos. LOVED their bread selection, 3 different kinds offered. My favorite was the cranberry nut bread with real butter!! I had the Fettuccine Margaret, an original, with chicken, mushrooms, poblano peppers and a fettuccine tomato blend sauce. VERY GOOD! Very good service. I would definitely go again AND again!

We read good things about Paesanos and we're looking forward to it. Unfortunately, it was just okay, but expensive compared to others. They also forgot to add the chicken to one of our party's meal, but of course charged for it. Great location, but you can find better.

Went with a group of 9, had tortellini over spinach that was good and reasonably priced. Atmosphere ok, service very good. Others with me enjoyed their entrees although portion size smaller than I expected
