Dated atmosphere but great food

The atmosphere at Paradise comes across as fake Italianesque done on the cheap sometime in the mid-80s. Having said that, it's still comfortable. This place could do with some serious renovation. But the food... the food is excellent! I've had their fettuccine carbonara, their calamari and... read more

We have eaten at paradise many times in the last 2-3 years. And although it's a little run down and dated, the service has always been informally fun, and with the exception of one dish out of all those visits, the food was very very good indeed! It's not a fancy place, but it is appealing in a kitschy sort... More

Went for lunch with a group of friends. Some of us wanted something besides the lunch special and were told it could take 45-60 minutes. The lunch special was 2 slices of pizza and salad or pasta. We could not understand why it would take so long to order a different kind of pizza or some different pasta. Opted for... More

There are two restaurants by this name. One on Leila and the other on Portage at Broadway. This review is on the Portage location. We dined with 6 friends and the experiance was better than I thought it would be. One of our party was late in meeting us, but the waitress kept coming around to see if we wanted... More

It has been same family owned and operated for 34 years (Portage location opened in 1978 and Leila opened in 1983) We have had, I'm sure, everthing on the menu from veal, chicken, pasta, pizza to specials. We may have not cared for some of the entrees but I'm sure other... More

Decore is slightly rustic but charming. The food - I have chicken parmesan - was excellent. It was te special for the night. The portion was large and I had to take leftovers home. They brought out a large basket of breadsticks which was complimentary. They are some of the best breadsticks that I have ever had! I would go... More

We found out about this place when Italian friends of ours in Winnipeg invited us. Since then, we go there when in the city. Not the greatest atmosphere in the world, but the service has always been excellent, and the food is very good.
