Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place. Great food. Great service. Great facility. This place has hit it spot-on. Pasta is perfectly cooked. Sauces are just right. House made Greek dressing is fantastic. Nice relatively small restaurant with modern ambience. Even the fountain sodas are worth commenting on.

I had the baked ziti and the Greek salad and took it back to the Fairfield Inn hotel close by. It was fresh and hot, and so delicious! I was able to save the leftovers in the hotel room refrigerator, and had the rest for lunch the next day! I will eat here every time I visit the area!

Awesome food!! We always go here when in town for softball. Never had anything that wasn’t delicious!!! Service is slow at times, but we are always with a big group so that makes a difference

I went in to order and asked if they had veggie lasagna. The girl at the register asked another woman who asked the cook. The register and kitchen are close enough to hear. They said they could make it, told her how to ring it up, and how to charge me - $10.49 + $1.50 for the veggies. That’s fine. She rings it up, I make sure to say with no meat. She said so you just want marinara? Yes, I don’t eat meat. Get the food $47 total and drive 20 mins home. Well, there is meat in the lasagna. I called back and just requested a refund for the lasagna. The girl who answered said the first one must have misunderstood what I asked for... ok would still like a refund. She was nice, I was nice. She asked me to hold on. Some loud, rude guy comes on the phone, no idea who he is, and says they don’t make veggie lasagna. I told him what happened. He said you may have called the one in Greenville. No, I ordered inside the restaurant. Just asking for a refund for the lasagna, everything else was fine. Again, yelling loud enough that my husband hears him clearly from across the room, tells me they don’t make veggie lasagna and if I want to bring in the lasagna, he will give me a cash refund. I’m not driving 20 mins for $12. I hope the $12 is worth losing a customer over. Such poor customer service!!

Food was mediocre for the high price. $$$ $5 for a plate of lettuce with some cheese sprinkled on top. Waitress stated that she could sub out toppings and then brought out bill with multiple upcharges. A simple calzone ended up costing more than a steak dinner! The owner initially hid in the kitchen, and we had to request to speak with him. He was immediately loud and rude! He didn't have any professionalism or customer service skills, and proceeded to throw his staff under the bus and claimed he had no control of how his computer system calculated the tab. Probably should take some college technology classes. All I can say is WOW! I feel sorry for the employees who have to work for such a weak manager. Sweet waitress, but the owner is a liability to his own business. Definitely not worth it. Too many other great restaurants to patronize. If I could give a negative rating, I would. Don't waste your time or $$.

Food is below average for the price. While is Spartanburg with siblings, due to the passing of our mother we decided to eat a Paisano's. I ordered a meat calzone and asked the waitress if I could sub out 3 of the meats for 3 vegetables and she responded "absolutely, no problem" When I received the check instead of the $12.99 that I had expected it was $19.00. I questioned the amount of the check and she said she would have to asked the manager. She was sent back with a message from the manager saying "that is how the computer rang it". I asked to speak with the manager who did finally arrived at our table in loud, confrontational manner. He tried to be intimidating by being loud and drawing attention to the table. He also blamed his waitress suggesting that she needed to be retrained and lastly blamed the computer system suggesting that he had no control over how things get rung. Imagine my surprise to find out that he was the owner of the establishment (a course in customer service would go a long way). Considering the state that restaurants are in post pandemic you would think an owner would go out of his way to make his customers happy and not drive them away. The experience was so bad that my family and I will never darken the doors of this establishment again. For a better experience and much better Italian food I would recommend Boston's Pizzeria (also in Spartanburg).

When we lived in Duncan, we always went to Paisanos. They had great food and great service. We moved to Inman and still continued to go to Paisanos....that is until, along with their decor, they apparently changed management. The redo is a cheap "farmhouse" style and doesn't fit their menu or offerings. We stopped going after they closed up on Saturday (what restaurant closes on Saturday?) and went back (on a Friday) after almost a year. The worst. The restaurant was dirty. They don't keep the S&P etc... on the table (apparently because of COVID) but they clearly don't clean them up after each use....ours were sticky and had crushed food on them. I used the bathroom and should have known that it was not going to be a good experience when the door plate was sticky and crusty. I came back to my table and told my husband that I don't feel comfortable eating here after seeing their bathroom. It was disgusting. We stayed only because we ordered a pizza and didn't want to do that to them. We are never going to return to this restaurant which is unfortunate because we like their pizza.

Went by to pick up food for lunch for a coworker and I. Check the pizza but failed to check the side salad. Lunch time, to our surprise only lettuce and 3/4 of a tomato. The young lady that answered the phone was very pleasant but the owner was a complete Jerk. I will support Pizza Hut and day. For 4.99 I should’ve drove and purchased my own bag of lettuce

We ALWAYS go when in town for ball at Tyger River. Great little local Italian place that seems to be family owned. Food is great and the service is basic but fast, efficient and attentive. Love to go there when in town.

I have not been here for dinner, but if you are looking for a quick, good place to eat in Duncan, SC this is one of the best. I like Italian, and start with Chicken Parm, and this place has never failed me, Now, the Chicken batter is not as spicy as I would like, but it has a good sauce, the right crunch and gets to the table quick.

We traveled to Duncan to see my sister in law and decided to eat dinner here. Very good menu, clean, friendly service. Our table had lasagna, salad, pasta and eggplant parmesan. The portions were large and very good. The food came fast and hot. Very good place to eat. Hope to return.

This restaurant has been around for quite a while and, from my perspective, hasen't improved or gone down hill either. They want you to believe their fare is cooked up by an elderly Italian who does food proud. Fact is - it is what ever the food service truck dropped off at their back door. Thaw it out, warm it up, poor some cheese on top, and hope for the best. It is just OK but has the edge as they are about the only restaurant for miles (except for the usual fast-food joints. I would return if I was in the area but only expecting average. They could do so much better.

I have never written a review before, but felt that this restaurant deserves to hear about the experience we had this past weekend while visiting SC again. We had a very good experience with our swim team last year when the folks at this restaurant accommodated our party of 10 very well with tables put together when we called ahead. This year, another parent called for us to meet as a group of about the same number of people. We were about 10min. early than the time we were told to meet there. As we were shown into the restaurant after mentioning our group had called ahead, we were given the choice of booths and nothing remotely accommodating to bring the empty tables together to form for our group. As my wife asked about a more hospitable arrangement, a younger man walked up and asked "what is the problem?". My wife explained that we had called ahead and they had said they would accommodate our party. He responded rather rudely to my wife that we need to make a decision to use the several booths since there are others waiting to be seated. Our invited family and friends were new to the restaurant which we had suggested for the evening. Even my friend's father in law thought it was better to leave at this point. We had the swim team kids to feed and after our server smoothed it over by identifying the man as the owner and that he was rather abrupt, we decided to stay and have dinner. I have to agree with the other review that the food is basically a Sysco level jar sauce over-cooked pasta operation. I will not patronize this business after our experience again and felt that others should know the same.

My family used to frequent this restaurant often. We would even have small business meetings here at lunch. The last time we went I swore it would be the last. The hostess was so rude that we just walked out. We had a party of 6 and she wanted to seat us at a booth built for 4. When I reminded her that we had 6 she tried to pull a chair up to the end of the booth. The entire center section of tables was empty, they simply did not want to pull tables together to allow a for a party of 6. Just ridiculous.
