Paesano, which means Friend or Countryman, a person from your village, was started by friends with a dream. Those friends were the families Pat and Lori Lanni and Mike and Michelle Patterson, both residents of Oxford that knew there was a market for a good Italian Restaurant. Pat Lanni was one of the creators and founders of The Great Steak and Potato Company. The Patterson’s are the owners of Patterson’s Cafe. That dream was in Summer of 2004, when the purchase of Mary Jo’s Cuisine was a reality. In November of 2004 the doors opened to rave reivews and still going strong. The philosophy of Paesano’s was to serve only the finest ingredients in custom made pasta dishes, in a quaint Tuscan Style atmosphere that caters to good times and good friends or paesanos.
