The last time I ate at Paisan's I was a senior in high school and it was on University Ave. This restaurant always had great pizza. Now it has much more than just great pizza. A great view to over look and fabulous interior. The guys both had the Whitehouse sandwich and it was excellent.

This was a great dining experience. We were seated at a table overlooking the water, in the "Fireplace" room. The wait staff was terrific and very attentive. The locale is very clean and pretty with stained glass windows. The food was excellent; we had the ravioli and the manicotti, both of which were done well. There was enough to take home - lunch for tomorrow!

Stopped by for happy hour recently and were exceptionally pleased by the great options and exceptional prices of the drinks and hors d'oeuvres. We enjoyed a Bella pizza--very tasty with a slightly sweet meat sauce. Make time to stop by!

I arrived about twenty minutes before the rest of my friends, and they said no problem, and seated me right away, at a booth with a view of the lake. The waitperson was very nice and made sure we were taken care of. I ordered the nightly special, beef ravioli with a side porta salad. The porta salad was every bit as good as I remembered it being last time, and the ravioli was delicious! It was enough food that I easily had lunch for work the next day.

First they have a very nice bar area, and once we went up to the restaurant the views of lake Monona are awesome. We went in February, but the outside dinning looks really nice. The food was really good also, the signature porta salad is awesome. Our table also ordered pastas and pizzas which both were very good. The server was very attentive and really funny. Looks like they have space for larger parties and even separate rooms for parties. I would highly recommend this restaurant in the downtown area of Madison.
