Staff was great, fungi pizza was good, rest of the food not great at all
Food was not up to its usual standards; neither was service.
Excellent overall especially during a pandemic! I had a lovely dinner with a wonderful friend, thank you.
Paese Restaurant never disappoints. The food is out of this world.
I went last week which was my first time there since Covid began.
As indoor dining was closed, we ate out on the patio. It was a cool evening in November but we were able to dine without our coats as there were two heaters by our table.
The food was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert including wine.
They also have an option of bringing your own wine bottle and they will uncork the first bottle for free.
It was incredulous to see almost every table filled. When I asked our waiter, David, (who was fabulous, by the way) if the restaurant is always that busy, he responded with an astounding, yes!
Hopefully the COVID cases will decrease and the lockdown will end soon so that we can return to this fabulous restaurant!
Consdidering the pandemic, Paese makes dining safe and enjoyable. Very good food, served by great wait staff in an enjoyable environment. Highly recommend. Paese.
Food was great, patio was warm even though it’s cold outside. Was so nice to go out, have a nice meal and feel safe during covid! Great spot!
happy to support local establishments during these troubling times, especially when the food is great!
Good food but overpriced for what u get. Covid forced us to this outdoor dining spot. Little Italy is better and more value
We sat outside and although it was cold even with heaters the restaurant trying accommodating turning on heaters adjacent to our table. Food and service was very good and server was attentive.
Always great food and Bernice
An amazing restaurant for value, great food, and great service. Ask for Sal if you want a perfect wine recommendation.
Great restaurant, great for the winter outdoors, covered heated area.
As always excellent food and service. Highly recommend
Paese has done a great job with the covered heated patio. Tables were distanced. Server very good. Excellent food. We felt safe and enjoyed our evening.
Food and service were exceptional, it was a bit cold under the tent/patio.
We had to wait for 30 minutes for our table. If we didn’t complain we were going to wait even longer.
Excellent food, service and during COVID PAESE has figured out the outdoor patio dining experience!
Great dining experience despite COVID. Felt safe as was easy to social distance with the set up of tables. Heaters kept us warm and food was excellent. Paese created a lovely ambience with a well structured tent, tea lighting and upbeat music. A+
They are doing a wonderful job in their outdoor setting.
While we have always enjoyed our meals and service at Paese our most dining experience there was the best!! During COVID 19 it's hard to find a patio that is well heated, has safely distanced seating, has staff that are well trained in safety protocols and still serves delicious food. Paese hit all the check boxes and made you feel safe and have a very enjoyable meal. Their extremely well designed COVID patio was wonderful and We will definitely be back soon and highly recommend it!!
The covered patio had great heaters and even with a major rain storm we did not get wet
Food was delicious. Very comfortable place to have a meal. We felt very safe
Always love coming here. Thanks for making it nice!
They have done an amazing job with their out door covid safe setup. Food was outstanding as usual.
Excellent as always. Tony has gone above and beyond making sure you are comfortable, and safe during these COVID days.
Birthday afternoon drinks / snacks
We had a very good dinner. Felt very safe.
Amazing, delicious food. Beautiful patio with heaters next to or over the tables.
If you're looking for a way to support local restaurants during these crazy times, Paese is perfect!
1) super heated patio, with tables well distanced
2) staff are extremely cautious about keeping distance while serving
3) you don't ever feel like you're in the parking lot!
4) food is foodie-worthy
5) feel good vibe the whole evening:)
Good heaters on patio. I felt safe and happy to be eating at a restaurant! Good food and complimentary bday cake for my friend!
Great as usual!
Waiter had very greasy hair and put me off my food. Everything else was excellent
Great food, great service. Heated patio was great as well considering we are in a pandemic. More people need to eat here.
Amazing service and amazing food! Great heated outdoor patio for these crazy times.
HIGHLY recommend it!
Patio is amazing Food is out of this world even the coffee is the best would highly recommend
I’ve come here a lot in my life but the last few times, enjoying the patio was extra special.
A perfect night—good food and good service
The food was incredible and service was fantastic. The portion of the pasta was quite small given the price. The ambiance was great, but I feel there should not be plastic walls up as it essentially defeats the purpose of it being a patio.
Paese has done the most amazing job with Covid19. Tables are spread apart, tented with tons of fresh air and heated.
The food was great. A perfect evening
