Fantastic service, the waiter was very helpful when asked for recommendations.
Loved the tortelloni!

Great experience and excellent food
((*** 13 August 2019 by Ann from London
The food was very average and the service rather slow (although they were very friendly)
(((** 10 August 2019 by Christopher from London
Food sensational and a really great place but on this occasion the service was pretty flakey. None of the top 3 wines available and the food took a while to come. Kept having to chase our waiter. We would go back a lot because we enjoy it but they need to up the effort and write down requests so they don’t forget

Friendly and attentive staff. The food was delicious!

I have been to Paesan many times and it’s been great. However my visit on Saturday was terrible. Food was so bland and came out lukewarm. We were a party of six and food came out at all different times. Service was poor. Really disappointed and they have lost a loyal customer. We also tried to go for a drink in their cocktail bar downstairs before dinner but they informed us it was closed due to a private party. However when we got there, there was clearly no party. So poor.

Amazing menu and high quality food. Absolutely delicious.

While the staff were friendly, they could not handle the busy restaurant.
Our starter came out very quickly and then we waited over 75 minutes for a bowl of ragu pasta and some greens, which arrived after chasing twice. Unfortunatley it was not booked properly and we had to send it back. The replacement dish (we changed to the gnocci) was delicious though but it was just too late by then and we were not as hungry.

Service (as in, ordering the food, getting our drinks and getting the bill) was extremely slow even though the restaurant was practically empty. The waiters were barely polite and did not seem to know the basics of their jobs: they took the plates off the table while some of us were still eating and literally waited right there for one of us to finish
Half the dishes came cold and a couple of portions were small even though we paid extra for large. The dishes themselves were not bad, but nothing extraordinary either, and frankly not worth the price.
The fact that we had to pay an extra 2 pounds per person for a mediocre service was disagreeable to say the least
The only good point is the location and interior; well located and nice interior/decoration for a cozy atmosphere. Does not make up for anything else though, unfortunately
Poor experience and would definitely not recommend. Extremely disappointing in every aspect.

Really good food but the service was very slow particularly considering how quiet it was when we made our order. Took a very long time for the starter to arrive (which was just a charcurterie board so no cooking required!) and the mains also took a long time. We ended up late to an event we were going to. I really like the menu and the staff were friendly.
