This small restaurant in West Hobart does not have meat dishes, only past and pizza, but they are soooo good. They have a very busy take-away business which is always a good sign for quality pizzas. Domenic and his staff run a very nice establishment with excellent service and very good value meals.

Dinner here for the four of us was a nice surprise. Kids menu had good variety but the rigatoni was woefully small for $12. Luckily our other child a 9 year old ordered a normal Main ravioli which was generous and tasty. Gnocchi bolognese also wholesome. Fettuccine with prawns was packed full of ingredients and delicious. Good variety of local... More

Had another great catch-up with friends at this great Italian Restaurant. We have a focus on pizza and try to get 4 pizza and share them at equal intervals so we always have a hot one. This time we were celebrating my birthday and did not make it as clear as we could have. The garlic came out first and... More

Great selection of Italian cuisine. Desserts to die for. Service is a bit slow. 30 min for drinks, 45 min for entree, 60 min for main.

Visited on a busy Friday night - although the place was packed full (can get very noisy) the service and food were very good. We had been recommended to come here by a family member and were not disappointed. Reasonably priced too. Definitely recommend.

We were amazed by the quality of the food at Paesano's... it was fantastic. We arrived on a very busy night and there was a line of people outside the door (it looked booked out). It turned out that a group had booked for one number then shown up with a few extras. The staff handled this wonderfully as they... More

Paesano's dished up some of the best Italian food I have ever eaten. My partner and I shared a tomato, garlic and cheese pizzetta, and then had the pumpkin and ricotta ravioli (a special of the week) and the meat ravioli with carbonara sauce. It was all delicious, however the carbonara sauce was the standout. Silky smooth and a wonderful... More
