Description: Paradiso Newcastle - NORTH EAST RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016 As voted by the Food Awards England. One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past, Paradiso is a local family run restaurant that has been a mainstay on the Newcastle gastro scene for 20 years. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.

“Unbelievable value got such great food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We came here for lunch at the weekend on a hen do. The girls couldn't believe the quality of the food for the price. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the staff were great and attentive. I would recommend Paradiso to anyone and 100% go back - a real hidden gem in Newcastle x

Came for an early bird meal before a night out and really enjoyed it. The service was excellent and the food very tasty - the portions were large too. Can highly recommend this hidden gem! X

“Simply The Best”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

OK So we were on a Living Social Deal - but isn't that good business practice to attract first time visitors.
First a warm welcome from Giuseppe, second a LS menu with 6/8 choices for each course, third a glass of prosecco.
Each of our 4 diners were totally impressed with their choices - mussels, fish, lamb, pork. Even my pint of Peroni seemed the best I had ever tasted - and I am a Real Ale man! Also mention should be made of the quality of the house red.
Service was polite and informative, by what appeared to be all male staff.
Surroundings comfy with a nice 'buzz' once the tables had filled.
OK I need to mention a downside - without our knowledge a 10% service charge was added to our drinks bill - although Guiseppe was honest enough to point this out when he saw we were fishing in our pockets for a tip. Also I have this thing about the absence of Italian music in Italian restaurants ( although once the ' buzz ' had taken off, background music was not necessary ).
To sum up - at just over £9 per head for two courses + glass of fizz, this has to be simply the best valued voucher deal we have experienced. Our party agreed that we would willingly return and pay in full to sample again the quality of the food and service
