    Fried lasagna sandwich. Died and gone to heaven.

    Amazing sandwiches with really unique ingredient combos. The Gustaio with home-made lamb sausage and red sun-dried cherries on mint crispy flatbread was phenomenal. Can really recommend this place !!

    The namesake and arista are both incredible. Pretty much can't go wrong here. And there's a pretty good sandwich with fried lasagna in it.

    The paesano is a thing of beauty- messy but beautiful. Perhaps my favorite sandwich in Philadelphia

    This is where you'll find my favorite roast pork sandwich, the Arista w/ broccoli rabe, long hots and sharp provolone. It may be sacrilege to say, but this beats out DiNic's for me.

    Brendan Rastetter · August 10, 2014
  • Bob B.

    Had the classic Arista. Delicious despite Mets fans in the building.

    Bob Bentz · August 9, 2014
  • Campbell B.

    Get the Paesano or the Bolognese. Both are rad.

    Campbell Bird · August 3, 2014
  • Sarah R.

    They are cash-only now due to increasing price of credit card fees.

    Sarah Rivera · July 24, 2014

    More than just sandwiches here.. try the Tuscan Tony hot dogSopressata wrapped all-beef dog with Bolognese, sharp provolone and Italian long hots. Read more · July 2, 2014

    The United States has the best sandwiches of any country. Philly has the best sandwiches in the country. Paesanos has the best sandwiches in Philly. Ergo Paesanos has the best sandwiches in the world.

    1of2 Try one of Peter McAndrews’ famous sandwiches. Arista, Paesano, Gustaio. Their potatoes are roasted in duck fat and are smothered in provolone cheese. OMG.

    Best Gluten free Hoagie by far! Try the Tuna Italiano no cheese. 👌

    Italian market birthday!!

    Elisabeth Aulepp · June 26, 2013
  • Amanda S.

    The most epic sandwiches ever. Like ever. My favorite is the Bolognese, a fried lasagna (yes this is real) sandwich. Also check out the Paesano, the Arista, the Daddy Wad, and the veggie sandwiches.

    Amanda Shulman · April 28, 2013
  • Barrett L.

    You could easily split one of these enormous filling sandwiches...but why? Get the Paesano.

    Barrett Lane · April 1, 2013
  • Jeffrey G.

    Best sandwiches in the world, seriously.

    Jeffrey Gray · March 24, 2013
  • Aaron W.

    The liveracce sandwich is so damn good. You'll be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't.

    Aaron Williams · February 22, 2013
  • Steve S.

    Nothing on the liverrace sounds like it goes together until you taste it. Possibly the best sandwich I've ever eaten.

    The Gustaio is a sandwich to build a dream on.

    Reagan Copeland · December 1, 2012

    Pork sandwich was dynamite. Brisket pretty good too, would benefit from a thicker cut. Mmmmm

    Bill Martella · November 18, 2012

    These sandwiches put the cheesesteak to shame. Get the Arista with roast suckling pig and wash it down with a root beer.

    34th Street Magazine · November 6, 2012
  • Travel + Leisure

    The Bolognese, which layers fried lasagna with red sauce, smoked mozzarella, roasted peppers, sharp provolone, and a sunny-side-up egg, will make you forget all about those touristy cheesesteaks.

    Anthony Bourdain stopped by Paesano's while in Philadelphia filming for his show The Layover. He and his crew tried four sandwiches: The Liveracce, the Gustaio, the Arista, and the Paesano.

  • Kristie M.

    I would like to attempt to try every sandwich on the menu. So good!

    Kristie Mabs · August 26, 2012

    Go for the roasted suckling pig, provolone, and broccoli rabe in the "Arista". For an Italian cold-cut, go for the "Daddy Wad," packed with mortadella, salami, sopresatta, cappacolla and prosciutto.

    Men's Health Mag · July 9, 2012

    Don't ask for ketchup...unless you want to shame yourself.

    Naveed · May 11, 2012
  • Jake S.

    Go for the meatloaf parm

    Jake Sullivan · April 21, 2012
  • Eater

    Order the Paesano, the Arista, or the Bolognese. Take out-of-towners here to blow their minds. [Eater 38 Member]

    RC Cola on tap. Instant classic. Get the Liveracce or the classic Paesano. Seriously impressive.

    One the best sandwich shops in the Italian market in south Philly. There crispy meatloaf Parmesan sandwich is out of this world.

    Favorite hoagie in town. Don't even bother anywhere else.

    Gab Bonghi · November 30, 2011

    The Arista- "whole roast suckling pig with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone!. Need I say more?

    Concierge · November 5, 2011
  • Ed L.

    Oh God. Deliciousness. Get anything. You'll love it.

    Ed Lee · November 1, 2011
  • Chris W.

    These are honestly some of the best sandwiches in town. And this is a sandwich town.

    Another favorite: Daddy Wad marries mortadella with pistachios, genoa salami, sopressata, capicola, prosciutto and sharp provolone with arugula, tomatoes, onions and sweet and hot peppers.

    Visit Philly · October 12, 2011
  • Visit Philly

    Paesano’s sandwich shop is decidedly new-school thanks to chef Peter McNamara’s flourish: The Tuna Italiana throws herb-cheddar spread, hard-cooked egg, roasted tomatoes, arugula & chips into the mix.

    Visit Philly · October 12, 2011
  • Steve A.

    Pretty good, but make sure you've tried Pat's first!

    Steve Arze · September 30, 2011

  • Mike F.

    Get in right now! Skips Pat's, Geno's, Jim's and other tourist traps.

    Chef McAndrews sandwich spot has become one of the biggest destination spots for food tourists. We love the Bolognese, a piece of lasagna and a fried egg on a Sarcone's seeded roll. Read more

    Think Slow Food in Italian Nonna’s kitchen with loud Irish roots...Crazy-delicious combos like the pulled roast suckling pig with broccoli rabe, Italian longhots and sharp provolone.
