About Us

Paese [pa’eze] means “town or village” and for us this symbolizes neighborhood. Paese opened over 25 years ago and has stayed true to a handcrafted and housemade approach to a menu that’s Italian-inspired, with a distinctive and original made-in-Canada twist. The multi-region wine list is not only a wine lover’s dream but is reasonably priced for all to appreciate.

Wine Program

Paese has wine cellars with over 800 labels from all major wine producing regions. Paese has four Sommeliers on staff.

Sunday to Friday, BYOW, there is no corkage fee on the first bottle and the corkage fee on additional bottles, and on Saturday’s is only $25.

Appropriate glassware and decanters are provided.


Our wine inventory changes daily.
The lists featured are subject to availability in the restaurants.

Private Dining

Paese Ristorante features two private dining rooms.

The Cenare Room seats up to 60 and the Liardi Room up to 35. Both rooms are equipped with a projector and screen, stereo system and ipod adaptor. The private dining rooms are good for social and business functions alike.
