Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The appeal of the Paesano brand shows no sign of slowing down. This sister restaurant to the Miller Street original, housed in a former bank building, is a bright, modern celebration of just how good pizza can be. Everything is imported from Napoli, from the chefs to the pizza oven (which required the building’s foundations to be reinforced) and everything in-between. Paesano’s recipe for success lies in its signature hybrid sourdough – light and easily digestible, the dough is proved for 24 hours then baked at extremely high temperature for just a few minutes. It’s expertly cooked, chewy and flavoursome and provides a good foil for the select range of classic toppings – salami, mushrooms, capers, anchovies and the like – all with impeccable provenance. The speed of cooking means there’s a quick turnaround, and waiting staff keep things moving so it’s a good spot for a speedy lunch. Its location means it’s a hit with students during the week and families at weekends, but Paesano’s ‘no reservations’ policy does mean there can be competition for tables at busy times.
