    I ordered seafood pasta which was quite disappointing as the clams and mussels were not fresh at all. The scallops even had some smell like fermented fish. Compare to its price, it was not a pleasant experience at all.

    Awesome food and service! This was my second visit, and the food did not disappoint. One thing I will say is that they don’t pay any attention to OpenTable notes. For both visits, I brought someone in for their birthday and put that in both the notes and tags for my reservation. Both times, I had to tell the server in front of the guest that it was their birthday because the notes were not read.

    Bread dishes were dirty and we replaced by more dirty bread dishes. I was promised a window table for four and it was given to a man dining alone. We had to cram around a smaller table. My vitello scampi was so overdone that I could not cut it and I asked for pasta as the side and was given an over cooked medley of vegetables. Waste of time and money

    Our visit felt like we were in a wine cellar in Italy. We sat in the rear by the kitchen which turned out to be quieter than up front. The beet and arugula salad was well done with not too much dressing. We chose the veal wrapped prawns, gnocchi with sausage and chicken in lemon as our entrees and all were outstanding. The wine list is extensive and we chose the Bruno Giacoso Nebbiolo D'Alba - perfect! Jesús was our server and he was extremely attentive. We'll be back (hopefully many times)!

    We have been here several times and it never disappoints, but this time, you kicked it out of the park! We had 2 new people come and wow, they also were blown away. Everything was beyond perfect! Outstanding wine list, fabulous and friendly wait staff (love Carmelita), appetizers excellent, fresh hot rolls, entrees - the lemon chicken, the parmesan risotto, the Oso Bucco, the spinach and ricotta crepes! Then dessert, fantastic. You continue to be our favorite restaurant and you always deliver. Thank you for keeping your standards at the top notch level!

    Genuine Italian cuisine that includes some very specific Italian dishes that you find in Italy, but usually not in so-called Italian restaurant. This is why Ristorante Paradisio is so unique. The team is very efficient and not intrusive at all.

    It has been about ten years since I last visited this locale, and given the pandemic, inflation and economy in general, I wondered how these would all impact our food and dining experience. Well, as with all restaurants these days, the prices have certainly increased (OpenTable's web site did not reflect the latest price increases, though the restaurant's web site did). Notwithstanding the possible negatives presented by today's dining milieu in general, e.g., increased costs, we had an absolutely delightful time enjoying our delicious cocktails, food and wine (Caprese ((a simple dish, but the best I have had outside of Italy)), Carpaccio alla Milanese, Bisteca al Pepe (done to the requested temperature ((perfection)) and delicious), Saltimboca (fantastic, tender and tasty), Vitello Scampi that looked wonderful all accompanied by Bruno Giacosa 'Arneis' and a Brunello di Montalcino (that we brought from home paying the $25.00 corkage fee). Portions were very nice and certainly matched the price paid I thought. The food at Il Paradiso is certainly "world class," or an even better compliment, would be a locale I would happily bring my friends from Italy without fear of them being horrified by "American Italian" cuisine. All of the above was truly a pleasant surprise, but what really made the evening a "cut above" was our server "Santiago." As it was a Saturday evening at the close of a beautiful day, the restaurant was very crowded. He did not miss a beat, and made us feel as if he were his only customers...he was attentive without being intrusive, and made great recommendations. My only regret is that it was ten years between visits. I will have to save up my pennies and rectify that situation. Just know, tables are a bit tightly spaced in certain angles of the restaurant, and while we were three and had ample room at what was in effect a four-top, it seemed to me that the two-tops were a bit small. The "vibe" is energetic, not quiet, but not unpleasant.

    This place is a classic and a favorite spot of my mine to ring friends and family to. I had two friends come into town this past weekend, and I made reservations a couple days in advance. We had a wonderful warm welcome and a quick sit down. We loved our entire eventing here and it feels so good to be able to go out normally again after the COVID era. The ambience and setup is lovely, but it was a bit loud. This should be understandable as it was a Saturday night. There was just enough space to maneuver between the tables. we ordered the caprese salad which was a bit bland, flavorless and not as tasty as I’ve tried other kind. The green crepe dish was odd the charts. Great recommendation from the server! And my friend really enjoyed the special for the night, halibut with vegetables. Overall great experience.

    Another great meal at Paradiso. Veal was great. Lasagna a bit cheesy would like a bit more tomatoes sauce and meat. But I ate it all so no complaint. Love the half carafe of wine, just the right amount. We will be back!
