My Wife and I had a truly wonderful evening here, we ordered a different pasta dish each and we were both deleted with the quality and quantity, prawns were in abundance! We have to mention the service too, this was faultless, the waiter offered help...More

We had a great meal tonight. The waiters were all very friendly and helpful. The food was one of the best meals we have had so far in Portugal. We were sitting out the front people watching. I would recommend this restaurant.

I am genuinely surprised at some of the other reviews. We visited with our baby in September and really enjoyed our time there. Yes, the service was a bit slow but there was only one waiter, run ragged, trying to serve a lot of tables...More

We'd visited here for lunch previously and hoped dinner would be as good and it was. The spaghetti vongole was excellent as was the lasagne. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and attentive waiters. Good all round Italian restaurant.

Paesano is located on the main pedestrian street of Alvor. The terrace offers a spectacular view of the Ria de Alvor and the main street leading down to the ria, while the covered patio in the back of the restaurant is perfect for a quiet meal. This is the ideal place to relax while enjoying one of our delicious dishes, or just sit at the bar having a cocktail or a variety of beer and wine. Our menu is very varied with a great choise of antipasti, homemade pasta & pizza and traditional italian meat and fish dishes. A warm welcome awaits you at Paesano, visit us the next time you pass by Alvor.
