On the positive side, the staff at this restaurant are amazing and service was superb.
However, the food was horrible. The salad consisted of Iceberg lettuce drowned in dressing making the lettuce inedible. The red snapper special was covered with cheese. The snapper paesanos was drowned in sauce. I don't understand why others have given this restaurant a good rating. Disappointing.

Live in SC so not in San Antonio often. Have been here 4 or 5 times in past 10 years. The “Shrimp Paesanos” was the first meal that I tried there and the only meal. Has been just absolutely perfect everytime. Hopefully look forward to it again one day. Atmosphere and service great as well. Great job

This is an attractive place with good menu. I split the Redfish Paesanos and the Eggplant Paesanos with my friend. We both loved the redfish. The eggplant dish was thick and heavy. Food on the whole was delicious.

This was our favorite place to eat while we were in San Antonio for a week. It is located on the Riverwalk, and we opted for an inside table. The atmosphere is very romantic, dim, and cozy inside. The service was very friendly and accommodating to our requests. And the food was fantastic! I ordered the Shrimp Paesano dish they are known for, and it did not disappoint. I would give this meal a 10 out of 10 because it was THAT good. My husband had the fettucine, and he loved his as well. On the way out, we ran into friends and told them how much we enjoyed it. The next day they said they also thought it was fantastic.

Recommended by more than one local we found this to be a great meal Shrimp Paesano is the dish to get, but we also had pizza and salad one evening and we found it very reasonable. Great service, and this would be a nice place for family and a date night. We would go again.
