NEW MENU FAIL... The good, the bad and the UGLY. guess I should add that chef Andre is a nice person and my server was cool too... its no wonder they have been through 3 or 4 chefs in the last few years. the chefs come out with a couple of new items that are good but attention to details... More

Chef Andre's spin on bruschetta is incredible. Grilled bread with sides of goat cheese, tapanade, tomatos, roasted garlic and balsamic. Outstanding Ossobuco atop saffron risotto. Fall off the bone tender.

Went for dinner for a 60th birthday the red sauce was bland and the meatballs had a strange flavor like too much fresh oregano. The meat sauce and pizza was good. Also had the special risotto with black truffle and halibut. It was just fair. A bit dry and the halibut a bit over cooked, not sure we would go... More

Italian food was delish and service was very good. Read reviews and wasn't sure but way better than I expected. Yes I will go again.

I have been to this property so many times but this is the first time I have dined at Paisano's. Service was pretty good but the food was nothing special. I had the ossobucco and it was dry and not so tasty.

Great Italian food. Probably the best restaurant in the casino for the price. My wife and I always eat here when we stay at the Pechanga RV Resort.

On July 15 we had the good fortune of dining in Paisano's while visiting Pechanga Casino & Hotel. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Pleasant atmosphere, excellent food and service, and just a great all around evening. The next evening, July 16th was our wedding anniversary and we changed our plans so as to dine at this fine establishment again. We were... More

Warm fresh bread, homemade pasta, sauces that wake up your smelling senses. Located in the Pechanga Casino is a world I imagine Italian food should taste like. We had a little bit of everything, and all I can say, is try everything. I would go back to the casino not to gamble, but to eat here again. Mouth watering.
