Social Profile:

THE STORY Passion, determination, and attention to details are the elements that make Paesano Ristorante one of the most appreciated Italian restaurants in San Jose and in Bay Area. Giuseppe Spatola (Pino), owner and chef of Paesano Restaurant was born and raised in Palermo. In the 80s he moved to the USA to join one of his brothers who was living in New York. After experiencing the new country for one year and eager to follow the Californian dream, Pino relocated to San Jose, where his second brother was running a restaurant. Ambitious and determined to succeed, Pino spent a few years working hard and learning all about cooking and management until he opened his own restaurant in Redwood City called Siciliano.

Contemporary Italian eatery lures locals with its traditional dishes served in a cheerful interior.

The food and service are both good. The atmosphere is cute, but it seems more like a little neighborhood bistro than an expensive restaurant. They are also kinda stingy with bread , which is minor but a little annoying.

Good solid Italian food. The fettuccine is a must. Sit outside because inside is really loud. The acoustics are not great inside, but the porch is nice. Nice wine selection. Thank you

The food was good, service was great and atmosphere was good. Our waiter was super attentive which I really appreciated. The food was good, but I feel like it could have been better for the price? The friend mozzarella on marinara sauces was delicious though.

First time here! My roommate ordered Spaghetti Tutto Mare and I got Spaghetti Porticello. We also got Calamari, Carpaccio, & Tortellini in Brodo as appetizers and soup.

This quaint little Italian restaurant packs a big punch. Located near downtown San Jose California at the entrance of Little Italy. Coming from Southern Italy is a region called Calabria well known for their amazing little red chilies. I had the lasagna that was prepared way different from other regions in Italy. The sauce was more of a light puree, the filling was a mushroom and Italian sausage layered with their homemade pasta. Let me tell you, I don’t think lasagna ever melted in my mouth quite like this one! You have to experience it for yourself. My husband had their daily special that was the Orecchiette pasta with a sauce made with Calabrian chili and their Italian sausage dripping (not sure how else to explain that, but Wow was it amazing! My daughter had the veal parmesean with roasted potatoes and veggies and it too was amazing! I recommend making a reservation to ensure you have a seat. Paesano’s is a must try if you are in or visiting San Jose. Wait, I can’t forget to mention the staff. We lacked nothing while we were there. They were on top of our drinks and making sure our visit was perfect. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. I have to mention one thing that was a little bothersome though, it is very loud in there and making it hard to have a conversation, however there was a large party which could have been the culprit otherwise perfect in every way!

A local-favorite Italian restaurant in San Jose! I came here to celebrate a birthday and decided to try a good variety of dishes on their menu. The staff are so friendly and gave us great recommendations!

I really enjoyed visiting here! The service was good, and even though it was in a small house, it didn’t feel crowded. As far as I can tell, everything was made in house even down to the mozzarella sticks. They are definitely not those reheated microwave kinds, they’re bigger and really good. I will say it’s a little pricey, but if you know that it’s going to be amazing and very high quality, then it isn’t a problem. Lasagna came right out of the oven piping hot, and the Spaghetti Porticello was so good! The Black Forest cake was the best I’ve ever had. Wish it had a few more cherries, but still the best.
