Description: Paesano is located on the main pedestrian street of Alvor. The terrace offers a spectacular view of the Ria de Alvor and the main street leading down to the ria, while the covered patio in the back of the restaurant is perfect for a quiet meal. This is the ideal place to relax while enjoying one of our delicious dishes, or just sit at the bar having a cocktail or a variety of beer and wine. Our menu is very varied with a great choise of antipasti, homemade pasta & pizza and traditional italian meat and fish dishes. A warm welcome awaits you at Paesano, visit us the next time you pass by Alvor.

Went here on our last night as everyone wanted italian, it is very busy but it is on the main street it is very big inside also. We had garlic bread, brushetta, garlic mushrooms for starters and the mushrooms were just beautiful really nice and thoroughly enjoyed them.
Mains included, 1 spagh bolo, 1 pepperoni pizza, baked lasagna with chips & side salad extra, fussilli with prawns in a creamy sauce, every enjoyed their dish, I couldn't finish mine as it was a bit heavy but a big plateful drinks included wine/beer/softdrinks. It was one of the dearer meals we had and this was probably because it was on the main strip.E80ish.

Couldn't get into the excellent D'angelos so this was the nearest "Italian" option. Actually amazed at the number of new "Italian" restaurants in Alvor in the last few years. They offer a bit more than pasta and pizza but I would expect that of any Italian restaurant. Prices were in my opinion on the high side but maybe paying for the airy surroundings. The starters were simplistic and certainly wouldn't spoil your appetite, 2€+ for 2thin slices of garlic bread. Caprese salad as it said on the tin. Mains were good, pizza was one of the best I've had in Alvor. My wife's chicken was also good although there was a lack of sauce. Served with ample size of potatoes and veg. Our daughter fell asleep during the meal and they happily put hers in a takeaway dish. Service differed from excellent to indifferent. The lead waiter was easily distracted by what else was going on around him, one of my pet hates. Had to repeat our order as he wasn't paying attention. The waitresses however were excellent, one even helping us downstairs with a buggy. All in all good for family meal, but if you want a romantic dinner for two there has to be better!

We ate here twice in a fortnight and both times had a good meal which the children (teens) particularly enjoyed, in fact they requested the return visit. It wasn't the best meal we had in Alvor but it was good and the staff were friendly. It was busy but if you get to sit upstairs overlooking the street you can while away your waiting time people watching!

Considering that this place was jam packed every night we assumed the food standard was the same as we have experienced here previously... We were wrong.. It wasn't terrible food it was just really really ordinary and quite plain.. The restaurant seems to be doing well because it looks nice from the outside and is located well at the top of the main strip but they really do need to up their game with the food as the competition in Alvor is so fierce and people aren't stupid and will soon realise and take their hard earned cash elsewhere..
