Paese Ristorante Bathurst St. Ratings and Reviews
One of my favourites!
A group of ladies had Lunch at Paese the other day. We were able to talk to each other and hear each other. This restaurant is not noisy. There were nice groups of people talking not yelling. And probably enjoying the delicious food. Our lunch was very good and enjoyable.
Their catering arm is excellent. They catered my Granddaughter's Wedding with Kudos all around.
Terrible and overpriced lunch the salmon was dry and overbuttered for $30. Not going back
The ambience, service and food were all very good. The menu had lots of selection and there were many specials to pick from. I would come back and recommend this gem of a place.
Great food great service terrific ambience !!!
The service was terrible. Our waiter spent more time socializing with preferred tables. The food was was not great. I had gone to Paese years ago and was very disappointed.
Great service, food and great atmosphere.
Returned for the first time in a couple of years. Paese is as good as I remember! Perfectly grilled octopus as a starter (my wife had the broccoli and carrot soup special) with a pair of excellent fish dishes (branzino and red snapper). Just fabulous! Service was outstanding.
We love Paese. It's our favourite restaurant.
We are never disappointed. The food is delicious and exceptional quality. Tony and his staff take pride in their service and quality. We always recommend it.
Good options on the menu but lacked a standard pasta dish. So one of us made our own and it turned out great - exacly what she wanted. I appreciate a restaurant that has that flexibility.
Always good, never disappoints, The food was very good. It was an enjoyable evening with friends.
I was somewhat disappointed. Previous reviews said that the staff was excellent at recognizing soecial occasions. I informed the staff ahead of time. When it came to,dessert, the server brought one of the desserts we had ordered and put a candle on the side. Certainly was nothing special.
The appetizers were good. My pizza was mediocre.
Never disappoints, food and service far out weighs the too close tables
Love this place. The food is always amazing. Very interesting menu. Very friendly servers and always there to fill up water without begin asked.
Worth every penny
Service was impeccable, food is excellent. Each dish is flavourful. My favourite caesar salad!
As always the food was fantastic, choice of wine was great!
The food was terrible and portions were small
Excellent dinner - everyone's meals were delicious
Good food. Very fresh and tastefully prepared. Service staff knowledgeable and suggestions very helpful and "right on" for our parties needs.
Paese remains an amazing neighborhood gem. After so many years the food and service remain fantastic and the decor is current. When I lived locally I ate here in a regular basis and always tried their interesting specials. It is now a drive for me to visit but recently had an outstanding meal while catching up with friends. Don't know why I stopped going!! One of the best wine lists you can find.
Dinner was great but we found it very pricey, Portions weren't that large.
excellent food and service. will be back soon. very warm
I've been here many times over the years, but I'm finding the price keeps getting higher. My daughter and I had dinner recently (no alcohol or appetizers and we split dessert) and the total bill was $90.00
Not going back any time soon
My fish was undercooked and service was very slow!!
Food was definitely not up to par
It was our first time, and aside from a hiccup with our reservations, everything was really good. Bartender and Waitress were a pleasure.
First time eating at Paese. We accidently booked the wrong night for our reservation but were accommodated with seats at the bar. Our serer James was excellent. We very much enjoyed everything and will certainly return for future meals. Highly recommended!!
It was my first time there after a few recommendations to go. I was not disappointed and will return! Soup was good, salads creative and tasty, short ribs delicious and pizza wood fired.
Service was terrible
It took so long to get our food
Great dinner for five. The 21 Ingredient and Caesar Salads a hit, three pizza choices tasty and pasta choice delicious (not overly seasoned to over power the taste of the fresh ingredients). Service very attentive, not rushed. Overall great experience and will be back. Picky eater enjoyed the pizza "best pizza in North York so far'. Would definitely recommend. Parking is limited though.
Good food, Friendly knowledgeable Waiters, Good Service, Nice ambiance - add good company what more could anyone ask for? Definitely one of our favorite places to Dine.
Great food and great service. Lovely vegetarian Pizza.
This is the second time my girlfriend and I have gone to Paese. This time we went for Valentine's day. It was busy with people lined up out the door, but fortunately, I had made my reservation well in advance of the day. I've previously written a review about the restaurant so I'm not going to repeat what I said other than I really like this restaurant. The food is good. The service is excellent. And it's just a 10 minute drive from my home. You can't ask for much more than that from your local eatery.
Great food, great service! ☺ will be back for dinner.
We had an enjoyable dinner with friends. It was winterlicious. We would return.
Visited location during Winterlicious, food was delicious, serve was excellent. Checked the prices on the regular menu and seemed reasonable. Would definitely return.
Great food and fantastic serving staff! Glad I brought our large group here. They've got nice large table for groups over 8.
We live in North York and wanted to go out for dinner. We went through Opentable's list looking for an Italian restaurant and landed on Paese as a random pick. We got lucky. This was a very nice restaurant with a good selection of dishes in a quiet setting. My girlfriend had the Ceasar salad and the carbonara. I had the deep fried polenta and the spinach and mushroom pasta. All the dishes were very tasty. The only complaint we had was the Ceasar wasn't worthy of being called a signature dish as others have stated. It was good but not the best we have had. We ended the meal with cookies, gelato and coffee. If a measure of a restaurant is whether you would go back, I would say this restaurant gets a definite yes.
Great evening. Really enjoyed the food. Service was great.
