I've been going to Paesano for as long as I can remember. The food, the ambiance and service has kept my family returning for years. Experiencing it when we returned to the area was no different. Owners Michael and Bridget Roddy always go out of their way to take care of their customers (and we hear this extends to their employees as well)!
Nick and I love to go there even though it's removed from the downtown scene, or more likely because it is removed from the downtown scene. When we dine there, we know it's a destination experience where we'll linger through the courses. The service is impeccable and the flavors are always exciting. We had an unforgettable pappardelle dish as one of our courses during their Carnevale celebration a couple months ago. The ragu was perfectly savory with a touch of sweetness. We later discovered the sweetness was from sautéed grapes — so delicious!
Nick shot their seasonal menu a couple weeks ago and we were delighted with how beautifully each dish was plated, perfect for photographing, which isn't always the case. With their travel excursions, Italian classes, movie nights and birthday cards, they truly make you feel like part of the family. We can't say enough wonderful things about the restaurant and we're really honored to be working with them.
