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.

I have been to Paradiso countless times, I went with friends last night to watch Italy v England. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious! (I had chicken skewers - would highly recommend) Even though it was extremely busy the service was great!! :-)

“Busy - but worth the wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We went there with no knowledge of this place other than the TripAdvisor posting. So glad we went.

Very busy especially for a Tuesday night but we quickly got a seat and despite it being so busy, the staff took great care of us the food was wonderful, both the risotto and the pasta.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

I visited Paradiso with a friend in May after purchasing a deal on Living Social. It is tucked away in a little side street and although I visit Newcastle regularly I hadn't realised it was there, but what a find! We ate early and it was very quiet when we first got there but within a short time it began to fill and the place was buzzing. The service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly waiters who were really lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. We really couldn't fault the food. It was excellent and fantastic value for the quality even without the voucher and the drinks were not overpriced like some italian restaurants I could mention. I will certainly be back, it is a wee little gem of a place.
