We only ever order pizza from here. They are very consistant with their quality, and get our food to us in a timely manner.

Best pizza in the capital region so far. We have tried many. But, we usually wish we had Paesans after we eat. It is not all grease and it is cooked very well. Real cheese!

This place has great pizza and I've never been disappointed in all the times I've come here. Slices are cheap and they have plenty of styles to choose from. The pizza is flavorful and It's definitely a great place!

Stop in about once a month. Most recently had a pepperoni roll with a side of red sauce. In general after countless visits this place is basically good average. They do nothing wrong at all, everything is always pretty decent. They just don't have any standout thing about them. That being said, there are plenty of worse places for pizza... More

They said they don't do thin crust which was kinda a letdown, the pizza was good not fabulous. I give it a small town average rating, even though their byline is "Brooklyn's Finest" they really don't compare to pizza you can get in NYC. They did deliver much faster than they promised and we were starving so that was very... More

Gotta have a favorite and this is it. Love their calzones and the variety of chicken wing flavors. It's very convenient to home and the food is always good. Love the stuffed pizzas as well. There are several locations throughout the Capital District. Started at one by work, but was happy when one opened up close to home. Give it... More

We were not sure what to eat so we figured pizza would be a safe compromise. Instead, we got surprisingly good pizza. It was fresh, crisp, and the toppings may have just come off of a local farm. They say it's Brooklyn style, I don't agree. I lived in Brooklyn for 9 years and pizza never tasted this fresh...

The search is over for the most delicious Pizza and Italian Food in the nation. Brooklyn Style. Everyone at our reunion for the Navy MSO Association who stayed at the Best Western Soverign LOVED the food. Quick accurate delivery right to the hotel room or eat in. I so wish they had a Paesans Pizza in Cortland New York !... More

Nice selection of pizza's to choose from. I love their chicken wing the best. Also have a nice menu of subs, wings and dinners. Eat in or take out. Friendly staff, quick service and reasonable prices. Best part- they deliver! Pizza not greasy or flimsy. Many locations....my favorite location is on Western Ave.

Paesans is our family's favorite pizza in the Capital District. Their pizza crust is always crisp and their sauce is delicious. They also use real cheese. Our favorite type of pizza is the Vegetarian Pie, which has broccoli, spinach, red peppers and mushrooms ... all for the price of 2 toppings and piled high. It is a meal in itself!
