Paseo Arts
About the restaurant
Eating is a community experience. Like art, our restaurant is only as strong as the people who support it. We aren’t in the Paseo by accident. This place is home: filled with all walks of like-minded life that love to eat, drink and laugh the same way we do.

That also goes for our vendors. We’re not just local because of who owns the kitchen. We buy our fresh ingredients from local purveyors and farmers, too. It’s our way of giving back to the same economy that keeps us going.

Nice Italian place just off I-40. We had the arancini appetizer, caprese salad, spicy bolognese, and gluten free pizza. All were good - the pasta was definitely spicy!
