THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN KNOX
Looking for the best authentic Italian restaurant in the Knox area? You can’t get more authentic than Paesano Restaurant, where our pastas are hand-made every morning by Nonna, the mother of co-owner Frank Cappuzi, who learned to make pasta from her grandmother in Abruzzo, Italy when she was just 5years old. She also makes the pasta sauces and traditional desserts like crème caramel and tiramisu. Her gnocchi is reputed as one of the best in Melbourne and her fresh linguine and lasagne will have you screaming “Mamma Mia!”
You will also be astounded by our delicious authentic pizza. There’s nothing quite like a traditional pizza made to perfection with the freshest ingredients and cooked by expert chefs. Try our Pear & Prosciutto pizza, where sweet meets salty in a beautiful dance of flavour and texture. It’s dishes like this, served by our amiable team of courteous staff that make us the best Italian restaurant in Knox.
At home in the center of the restaurant is the new feature antipasto station with the most exotic cuts of meat and cheeses. Feeling like a steak instead? Have your own teppanyaki bar at the table with the Paesano favourite, stone grilled steaks!
