I went to the river walk location with my husband for our anniversary and was extremely disappointment. The best part about the meal was my crown and seven and the breaded artichoke hearts. The bread was terrible and we were told that they have different chefs and the chef's take their own liberties. If I'm going to spend the money at Paesano's I expect that I will get the same meal regardless of which one I go to. If the shrimp Paesano's wasn't as good. I recommend that if you want a real Paesano's experience, go to Basse or 1604.
I love Paesanos, all of them. However, this is my favorite just beacause of the atmosphere of the Riverwalk. The Shrimp Paesano is wonderful at all the locations, but to eat it here right on the river where you have great people watching opportunities is the best. It does get super crowded at Christmas time, but that is to be expected. If you like to people watch and you love good food, Paesanos is the place to be.

This was our first time & we loved it! Lobster bisque was awesome, if a bit salty. My shrimp Alfredo was delicious & hot from the oven/stove. My husband fell in love with his Penne Gorgonzola! Word of advice: share a dish unless you like doggie bags. The bread loaves were yummy & plentiful. Very nice staff. Sister in law was enticed by the dessert menu but forgot to ask the price :$11. But she ate all the Key lime cheesecake , smothered with Apple Strudle , a la mode. Weird combo, but she ate all, complained about the taste, & got the dessert free. Patient waiter deserves a medal.

We attempted to get in this restaurant on Xmas Eve and whoever the manager was taking names seemed extremely frazzled and said he was hoping not to take anybody after 9:00 - would be too late,,,,blah, blah, blah... Very confusing.
So the next afternoon (Xmas), we put our name down for a ""wait"" time - we were told no reservations and we left. When we showed up the same man as the night before told us 45 min to an hour and never looked at our name. We stepped to the side and another manager (who seemed to be more in charge and was very helpful and was helping all over the front of the restaurant) called our name 15 min. later and said he didn't know we were there, he just took a chance calling the name. We had a lovely seat and a wonderful meal. Linguine with creamy clam sauce (I've had all over Italian restaurants in Chicago) was excellent, pasta with gorgonzola sauce was Delicious!. Plain old spaghetti was almost like homemade, bread and olive oil were wonderful. Two other pasta dishes were great. The drinks were very good.
The downside was this man who was handling the front seatings. We saw him tell at least 10 parties how long a wait they would have (even though there were some empty tables) and they left.
Get someone else for that job and let everyone have a chance to taste that great food. Make sure you get a second person to help with seatings if you don't get in right away. It's worth the push.

When I walked in to the restaurant, the wait staff was very nice that he gave me a table away from a big group so I was sitted in a more quit area. They started me with bread with olive oil with pepper and salt. The waiter gave me very good recommendation on what to choose from the menu. Finally I chose 'Tuna stead with reduced balsamic sauce on top of veggie with lemon butter sauce. It was very delicious!! The food cost ~ $30 with tips. The waiter kept checking on me to make sure I have everything I want. I would go back again if I am in the neighbourhood.

I thought food was ok. My wife had the signature Paesano shrimp dish which she did not enjoy. It was
tasteless. Robert our waiter needs to learn some manners. Robert on numerous occasions would come to our table with his hands full and ask if we could grab our own plates from him, instead of dropping them off himself. We had wine that he never poured for us. As far as I am concerned I will never visit this establishment again. If the restaurant had any sense, Robert should be fired on the spot.
