The patio seating at Paesanos Pizzeria is a pleasant sun-dappled space in which to enjoy truly innovative interpretations of fusion cuisine. Pastas include pad Thai noodles (snow peas, broccoli, julienne carrots and noodles with ginger sauce), Penne Roma, Rigatoni Asparago and others featuring fresh produce and spicy sauces. The pizzas are all baked in a brick oven. The "vegetarianno" features crust brushed with olive oil and garlic, layered with fontina cheese, grilled onions, spinach, sauteed mushrooms and other delights.

Sometimes they run out of the clams...at both this location and the Elk Grove location...that's the only downside because sometimes that's all we are craving when we go there.
A guest and I were there for lunch 12/18/2006 - we both had the fettuccni. Service was fast - food was bad. What COULD have been a fantastic dish was spoiled by the exceessive amount of CHILI OIL that it was swimming in. VERY oily. My lips are still on fire. A little could have gone a long way - especially in a dish that normally would not even have chili oil as an ingredient. I came to an Italian restaurant to have Italian food - had I wanted hot, spicy food, I'd have gone for Thai or Mexican. As it was (too hot and too oily), neither I nor my guest were able to finish our lunch and due to time constrants, it was not feasible to ask for a correction or replacement on the dish.
On a busy night be prepared for a long wait. If you can get past that, you'll have a good chance of having good food and a good time within a nice ambiance. Once known for their exceptional pizza, Paesanos has declined in this area. In the past I found their pizza selection to be unusual and suprisingly good. I don't know where the pizza creativity went, but it has left the restaurant. For now, I would advise avoiding the pizza and trying a pasta or salad. There you will still find some great flavors. Although getting a timely table can be very diffucult when busy, once seated I felt their service has been exceptional under the circumstances. The wait staff seems to go out of their way to cater to your special needs and are often very good at anticipating those needs. This is not a restaurant I would think of when going out with the kids, but we have always felt just as comfortable when accompanied by our children. I offer much thanks for this. I recommend Paesanos if you don't mind putting up with weekend crowds and have ample time to spend having dinner on busy nights.
We have ate at the Elk Grove place about 4 times. Went there last Sunday afternoon and got horrible service! We were offered no water or bread and waited 25 minutes for drinks that never came. There were only 6 tables taken and the Bartender (Manager) was delivering food instead of pouring drinks. needless to say, we walked out, but not before giving our thoughts to the so called manager who really didn't seem to care. Oh, but they did get our kids dough to play with while they were starving. Fire the manager! She's easy to spot as she tries to look like a dude and dresses sloppy!
I have gone to Paesanos about 8 times and the food is always great. My favorite dish is the Pollo de Modeno. The garlic bread is very crispy and tasty. My favorite appetizer is the fried calamari with their special dipping sauce. The pizza is also very good. It's a very noisy place, so in order to hold a conversation, you have to talk quite loudly. Parking is difficult to find since it is in midtown.
