We have been to Paisano's many times as a couple or with groups as large as 13. We have never been disappointed. The ambiance is wonderful and the serving staff is very attentive and well acquainted with the extensive menu. Our recent visit was for Mom's 89th birthday at her "favorite Italian restaurant". She was not disappointed. From appetizer (stuffed... More

They seated and served our 11 family members without breaking a sweat. The restaurant is BYOB, and we had been warned there were no drinks, but we could bring our own. They opened and served our wine, with no corkage fee, and chilled the white in an ice bucket. The food was good and ample. One hang-up was that one... More

Mushrooms stuffed with crab -- chewy mushrooms, did not taste or see crab, just stuffing which was not good. Spinach and chicken stuffed ravioli -- some of the pasta was under cooked and hard, stuffing was bland, sauce was good. The shrimp marinara was the best of the entrees, and Ok.

The food and Paisano's was terrific and the portions were huge, but the service was less than attentive...our waiter seemed to ignore us in order to flirt with a table of ladies.

Food was amazing, service was okay. All the pasta is made fresh and you can taste it. It is a more expensive restaurant, so for those of you that have kids I suggest this as a date night place. The front of the restaurant is nice, with that said it does get very loud.

We had heard great things about Paisano's and decided to check it out as a family for dinner on Saturday. We loved the outdoor patio and the good was delicious. We had the special burrata appetizer was so good and the kids loved the carbonara was the best we've had outside of Italy. Also loved the veal. Miro was excellent... More

Everyone enjoyed their entrees, rack of lamb, short ribs, gnocchi, chicken parm, salmon special, among others, as well as the three... More

Fresh homemade pasta, great entrees as well as great service makes Paisano's a treat in East Rutherford. Great for parties or intimate gatherings, but be prepared for a high price tag for the excellence.
