Superior food quality and preparation...service was also very good. Seafood was fresh and tasty. Ordered a pizza that was equally delicious. Menu items to please just about everyone.

Had a nice dinner and drinks before a basketball game! Had the Kobe burger with fries this time. Great meal. Also had the remaining portion of my wife's short ribs with potatoes. The short ribs were excellent, very tender and flavorful! Also, the service was excellent!

This is our "go to" spot for special occasions close to home, and sometimes just for a nice meal out.

We have never been disappointed with the food, beverages or service. The food is ALWAYS delicious and beautifully prepared. Their basil martinis are the best I've tasted! Go there!

This restaurant offers good Italian food and wines for lunch and dinner. It is large, with a traditional/industrial decor and a little noisy, which to me is a sign of people having a good time. Prices are higher than the average neighborhood restaurants which makes it a good place to celebrate special occasions.

Instead of tender short Ribs, these ribs are dry and chewy for me. Mixed Greens is good. Will try different dishes next time .

Last night was my first time at Paradiso. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how good the food was. The food looked and tasted fantastic. You can tell the place is well received by busy the place gets as the night wears on. Unfortunately, the wine selection didn't measure up to the food - they could... More

1 check-in Food was ok but they jacked up prices for New Year's Eve...by a lot. That's not cool. It was our first time here, and had they not taken advantage of NYE we would probably return but I didn't like that they charged double for some items they have on their regular menu. Service was good, just slow. They... More
