Paesan takes a more traditional slant on Italian food to most places you’ll find in London. And by this we mean that you can take an Italian there and watch as they eat everything put in front of them without complaining once. Paesan’s approach is all about small plates from different parts of Italy - think arancini from Sicily, and burrata by way of Puglia - served with deliciously moreish fresh bread. Or, if you prefer, order one big main portion of the slow cooked, braised beef shin pappardelle instead.
