Small cosy friendly Italian. Excellent steak , pasta and pizza served by friendly staff. More basic than Pear Tree next door but equally satisfying.

As a family of five, we really enjoyed our meal at Piazza Paradiso - the range of food, its quality and the accompanying wine list were excellent. The service was entertaining and informed, without being intrusive. The price was very reasonable.

I would like to find a restaurant where your bill is R100 for fish and chips for two people! The quality? Excellent! Will visit again.

I went for a quick lunch of hake and chips, well chosen wine pairing, crisp batter, hot flaky and meaty hake and lovely french fries. Delicious! Staff were very accommodating as I wanted to sit outside was in a hurry, it got too cold outside so moved inside and they were just fabulous with my indecision!

Of all the restaurants we visited in Hermanus in June 2016, Piazza Paradiso is the best value for money one. Great food, great variety and reasonable prices.

We have been to this restaurant several times. The standard is not always the same but it is good. The view is amazing and the setting is good. The paella is not really a paella as it does not contain saffron and bomba rice. It is tasty but is really a rice and seafood dish with lots of seafood. Waiters... More

Still a great spot for a casual pasta or pizza, friendly and efficient staff. Food portions are generous and tasty and the hot chocolates were great!
