the best Persian food in Louisville 4/6/2006

finally got a chance to experience Pesto's recently and regret only having not gone there sooner! I was totally blown away! you get a lot of awesome food and a really great variety of tastes and textures. The dining room is most inviting, but it's the food -- well-seasoned and well-priced that really shines. Do try the various kebabs - flavored with a luscious marinade of saffron and Olive oil -- and all entrees are served with mountains of fragrant Basmati Saffron rice. Love love love this place! Amazing food !!! Pros: excellent menu, awesome servers, , wonderful atmosphere more

persian army 11/27/2005

We went for lunch for a quick bite and as my colleague stated ""it's italian held hostage by the persian army"" The noodles and sauce were missing anything italian with an over abundance of anise .. I also had some hidden bonus tinfoil in my eggplant parmagian. The food was reasonably priced, we did get quick service and they do have a good looking web site. but i'll be passing on pesto's for chef boyardee in the future... more

Incredible! 10/14/2005

After reading other reviews I had to try out Pesto's. Let me say that every bite was delicious! The spinach salad was not only simple and great tasting but it was also aesthetically appealing. I followed up with the chicken parm which was awesome. Although stuffed, I had to try the cheescake for dessert. Overall the atmosphere was romantic and quiet with light jazz playing over the speakers. Highly recommend you check this place out. more

An Undiscovered Gem 10/27/2004

Two recent visits to Pesto's dazzled everyone in our party. Everything - from creative appetizers to delicious, homemade desserts - were gourmet creations. A Tahchin entree (with Saffron rice & Barberries) was truly memorable. The atmosphere is low-key and lovely. Topping it off, the menu offers an amazing value. We actually enjoyed it more, both times, than a recent ""splurge"" meal at fancy, mega-expensive, restaurants! Pros: Delicious, service more

Excellent dining experience 10/25/2004

This is a wonderful find. Very warm, friendly service, great food and lots of it. The food is filled with intoxicating flavor, and every bite is more scrumptuous than the next. This is a great place for couples who want to have a bite before going to the theatre. I highly recommend this restaurant. Check it out-you will love it! Pros: delicious, Service, Filling portions more

The Best Kabab in Town! 10/19/2004

I tried out Pesto's Persian food on a Friday night, and was absolutely amazed at the excuisite quality you get for the reasonable prices. We tried the Pesto's signiture kabab, which is a mouthwatering skewers of beef, marinated chicken, and steak on a bed of basmati rice... it was delicious! What topped it all of was the Napoleon dessert with hot persian tea! Mamamia!! A must have! Pros: classy, inexpensive more
