Welcome to the Paesan Kitchen & Bar

We are a neighborhood gathering spot located inside Thea’s Landing on Tacoma’s Foss waterway. The menu is simple yet varied, including gluten free crust and pasta, and a full bar. Our restaurant is casual and comfortable.

Our Concept

Open early weekly, start your day with fresh baked pastries, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, frittatas, oatmeal, and amazing espresso. Lunch and dinner include fire oven pizzas, sandwiches and salads. Happy hour from 4 to 7pm – come enjoy our rotating beer taps, including Dr. Townsheds Kombucha, craft cocktails, or an evening glass of wine.

Ingredients Matter

Fresh ingredients make all the difference. Fresh pizza dough made everyday. Never frozen. All our veggies are sliced on site and pork bellies cured in house for our roasted pancetta. Hand rolled lamb and pork potato meatballs. Fresh basil at every turn. Quality ingredients make simple dishes extraordinary.
