Best pasta we have had in ages. We will definitely be back. I can't wait to try the pizza. And .... they have strictly coffee!

“Excellent pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Amazingly delicious pizza (smoked salmon one), very reasonable prices, good service and the nicest smelling rest rooms that I've ever used! Haha, yes, strange but true. Over all a great experience, cheers!

“Tasteless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Went here due to the really good reviews on tripadvisor. Staff was really friendly and the owner bragged about his Italian pizza chef who had a masters degree in food.

All very well except the food wasn't really good. Had a "mixed salad" side. This was a small bowl stuffed with rocket leaves and topped with 3 small pieces of tomato, 2 olives and some thin bead slices. Less leaves or at least more olives, tomatoes etc. please.

For mains we had pizza. Both of them looked really good but were very tasteless. Way too much cheese. The base wasn't crunchy only the crust.

I really wanted to like this place but in the end the food wasn't good. Neither me or my fiancée could finish our dishes. I hope this was just an off day or whatever for this place.

glacialrock, Owner at Ristorante Pizzeria Paradiso Da Toni, responded to this review, 5 November 2013
I am sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to our Ristorante, it is my desire that every one who visits us leave happy and content. If there is an issue and you like your Pizza crisper it is not a problem as we can easily achieve this. I would be interested to know which pizza you had to describe as lacking in taste as all our toppings are the best we can source. My Pizza chef would have loved to speak to you as his desire see people happy and enjoying his pizza, he was sad that he did not have the opportunity to do this with you.
As far as the salad goes, you were correct, I can assure you that this has been rectified and that the salad is a very different dish both in composition and presentation.
If you are every in the area please come and dine with us as our team we would love to see you leave happy.
In a parting comment may I add this, Most business love feedback and if there is something that is not right for you regarding food or service then bring it up at the time. This way you can enjoy your evening.

Ciao Finn

This was a real italian experience! It seemed like everybody working in the restaurant was Italian. The food was good and the prices were reasonable, overall a good place to get a quick bite.

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Food was really good cooked by genuine italians. Light thin crisp Italian pizza base and good chilli oil.
Lacks ambience but they are only candles shoved in old wine bottles and a dimmer switch away from solving that. The lighting is just too bright.
Waiting staff are mostly Italian and couldn't be more helpful. Gluten free options on everything too.
Great value tasty food.
