We enjoyed a custom experience which included cooking instruction and helping to prepare our own meal called "An Evening in Tuscany". The staff did a great job, we had a lot of fun, and they made sure our food was excellent.

I attended a cooking class one evening and have to say I was a bit reluctant to eat the meal at the end of it! The kitchen was dirty and dusty and I was absolutely shocked!! I checked the Food Inspection report for them the next day and was very surprised to learn that Paradiso had actually passed an inspection... More

This is a bustling place. Efficient waiterstaff buzz from table to table. Maybe not the fastest service, but they are affable and get everything right. Food goes from okay to terrific.

My wife and I decided to try Paradiso after not dining there for many years and we're glad we did. While the menu options were limited on the Taste of Oakville promotion, the chicken dish we both selected was well prepared and very tasty. As well, the salad was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. We will most likely... More

Paradiso has long had "Date Night" which is a package of shared appetizer, 2 entrees, shared dessert plus 2 glasses of wine for $60. We finally decided to try it and it was a wonderful evening! Our server was excellent, and we were seated near the food prep area, which lent some entertainment to the evening. There was more than... More

The heat was so high as to be uncomfortable. Food was average, the service was friendly, but VERY slow.

I hosted a dinner for 9 here on a Friday at 7:00 pm. The only complaint to speak of was many of my guests had trouble finding parking. The service was excellent, both our appetizers and entrees were perfectly timed to arrive for all nine of us at once :) My gnocchi was extremely mushy, could easily squish right through... More

This restaurant used to be our go to spot either as a couple or with friends. It's located downtown Oakville with a lot of atmosphere but parking can be a challenge. At our first few visits we were pleased with the service and food quality. However when we took a group of friends the service was so slow it was... More

The Waitress was outstanding and very patient despite the ridiculous requests from our female companion who for some unknown reason seems to have a recognition problem and wanted to be the centre of attention causing a beautiful night amongst friends to be ruined otherwise this Restaurant was outstanding

Located in the heart of Downtown Oakville and Historic Village Square, Paradiso offers much more than a place to have an exquisite meal. The warm, intimate atmosphere flows throughout the restaurants but the heart of Paradiso can be found in the open concept kitchen.
The cuisine which draws inspiration for the European Mediterranean is prepared before your eyes and it's easy to see why "Dinner IS The Show" keeps guests coming back again and again.
Paradiso offers innovative entertaining concepts for corporate team building events, winemaker's dinners, and weekly recreational hands-on cooking classes in the Cooking Studio.
The interactive cooking classes at Paradiso cater to individuals and groups, and Read admits these popular classes book up very quickly. The recreational classes are inspired by culinary Mediterranean regions such as Italy, Greece, Spain and France. The Cooking Studio also offers classes for those who want to hone their skills. The most popular class is the Signature Dishes of Paradiso.
The culinary team building classes promote collaboration and communication between team members. Co-workers enjoy a unique and rewarding hands-on cooking experience that nurtures teamwork and leadership.
