I am a BIG Paesano's fan. I've also sent easily 100 people to their counter to sample the best sandwich in Philly. Easily. (Both the Italian Market and the Girard locations, not yet Temple) I intended to write this review as feedback directly to Paesano's, I hope they read TripAdvisor!

Paesano's is located in a cramped part of the city (the Italian Market). It's a hole in the wall that you may pass by if you don't pay attention. The shop doesn't smell all that great. But the sandwiches are unbelievably good! I will say I was a bit disappointed at my circumstances. I ordered two sandwiches, the Paesano (Beef... More

Easily one of the coolest, low key and delicious sandwich experiences I have ever had! Each sandwich on the menu beats the one before it and makes it hard to have only one! The chefs are nice, happy to greet customers and enjoy seeing people get messy with their meal. No plates, no cutlery just finger licking good food. Don't... More

Get and Arista which is a roasted pork hoagie with broccoli rabe, sharp provolone and long hots. It's amazing and kicks the Philly Cheesesteaks butt!

I got four sandwiches and only two of them were good. They seem like they were trying too hard to be an authentic Italian sandwich place. I say average because they also took way too long to deliver too.

We were making a pilgrimage to the Italian Market, went into Paesano's 9th Street location for lunch and am still thinking about it. It's a bustling casual place with a couple of tables and counters around the room. The Spousal Unit had the Gustiao, lamb sausage, cherry mostarda, gorgonzola & roasted fennel on flatbread. You can read the description and... More

We had the classic Italian hoagie and it was outstanding. The bread is chewy and can withstand the weight of all the yummy ingredients without falling apart. I loved that they put arugula on the sandwich instead of lettuce. It was the best Italian hoagie I ever had. Now I want to go back and try other sandwiches there.

Love the Paesano sandwich and the roast pork. The bread is great, holds up well unlike the soggy soft rolls served elsewhere. A bit out of the way but, worth the trip. Limited choices but hope to explore the menu further. Counter service. Good prices.
