I got right off the plane in San Jose and came direct to Paesano for lunch. The crowd is really happening here, lots of regular customers, enjoying their lunch hour and Christmas celebrations. Owner Giuseppe is as kind and generous as he was the last time I was here. My lunch was delicious, and Giuseppe was very welcoming, this is my favorite restaurant in the area. It is a place that you must try!
Here’s What I Tried:
Martini, a traditional Vodka Martini in a traditional Vodka Martini glass, what more could you want.
Chardonnay J. Lohr, a nice creamy Chardonnay, it paired great with the seafood dishes.
Guazzetto Clams and Mussels with garlic, olive oil, white wine and marinara sauce. The shellfish is super fresh and the sauce is nice and light, a true winner, and I ate the whole dish.
Fettuccine Alla Moda, this was my favorite pasta, nice porcini mushrooms fill this pasta with a wonderful fragrant flavor, just spectacular.
Spaghetti Tutto Mare with shrimp and scallops and white wine in a marinara sauce. The shrimp and scallops are perfectly cooked and they pop in your mouth, another delectable pasta dish.
Panini Eggplant Parmesan with small green salad, this is a no nonsense lunch item, and the salad is so refreshing.
This dining establishment is so special, everything homemade and all so delicious. If your looking for great Italian cuisine make Paesano part of your lunch or dinner repertoire.
