One of the party picked Paesano from TA as we heard it would be busy that night in Alvor. Walk ins are accepted everywhere. Paesano was Good ,the food was reasonably priced and arrived well presented. Large choice on the menu. I had monkfish escalopes which were covered in a sauce which in hindsight I should have requested on the... More

Ate here tonight. The food choices was excellent and the range of wines etc very good indeed. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. The food was great and the bill was reasonable. Try sitting in the rear garden. Beautifully decorated and very rustic in style. And don't mistake the pepper mill for a baseball... More

The food here was great and good value. I had the chicken in mushroom sauce and my wife had the goats cheese lasagne, both very nice. Just a shame the waiter couldn't crack a smile! (don't let that put you off, foods worth a visit)

When we arrived at the restaurant the blackboard says wait here till we sit you. The waiters just looked at us about 4 of them and eventually one came forward to show us to a table. We ordered pizzas and lasagne. One pizza came wrong and lasagne was very dry. No salad, no rice just a slice of dry lasagne.... More

Stopped here for a family meal yesterday evening with my husband and three small children. The waiter assigned to take our order had a serious attitude problem. It was like we were an inconvenience to him. When I enquired re the beer on tap he answered to my husband as if it was him that asked the question. He then... More

We ate here on two evenings and both were really good, food was delicious, service was good, the staff made great fuss of the kids which was greatly appreciated. Good value for money. I will definitely return in the future. Thank you Paesano

The food was hot, fresh, tasty, plentiful, cooked well and varied - everything you would expect from a nice restaurant. What made it outstanding was attention to detail and the service. Small gestures like recommendations/explanations on the menu, topping up water/wine, replacing side plates for fresh, giving a choice of table and courtesy glasses of port were just some of... More

3rd night of our week here and called in for an evening meal. Overall, the food was good and not bad value for money. The whole experience was let down however by the service. Every time someone came to our table it was a new waiter and the coordination between them all was poor, very poor. So, as long as... More
