I have a fatal food allergy and have trusted PAESE, their chef and staff, for many years, to feed me safely. I carry a card with the allergies listed which goes to the chef every time I eat there. Specifically Sabine and Derek are my "GO TO" waiters who always take good care of me. It's a pleasure to be there in their new heated outdoor patio. The food is presented beautifully and delicious & I look forward to every meal. Thank you all attentive staff.

excellent service and great food -- we were told that the pizzas were thin crust but that they could make them even thinner than normal. Turned out to be perfect.

The food at Paese is always great. Our waiter Ken is a gem, always sociable and friendly with great service as usual. We love the large patio, heated and tables are segregated with ample social distancing. We will always come back.

Our meal was disappointing. Cesar salad was very bland, and pasta had no flavour. I do remember when the quality was better, maybe a new chef, or an off night?? Will maybe go back sometime, but not up to par last night.

We felt our server was not having the best day and was very sarcastic with us. Also, the washroom on the main floor was filthy. A real concern especially during Covid.
