I booked il Paradiso for the wife's birthday treat and not being from York, i'd done a bit of research online before I booked it so were aware of it's great reputation. We certainly weren't disappointed, from the warm welcome to the vibrant atmosphere and most importantly the amazing food we both agreed it was the best Italian food we'd... More

Quite simply it's a genuine Italian restaurant run by people who care, share a smile and cook great food! We go back time and time again and the only thing we'd change is for it to be bigger so more people can enjoy it's excellence!!

I have visited Il Paradiso many times and have always been impressed. All my favorite pasta dishes are the best I've ever tasted here. The decor is unusual but the atmosphere and food more than compensates!

Really disappointing. Had a pasta dish as my main and it was tasteless. The Service was far too rushed. Our meals were brought to us 5 minutes after ordering. Felt like being on a conveyor belt system in there. So many better places to eat Italian food in York.

Best Italian we've been to for years. Great seafood, great chef, great atmosphere. Perfect for a group or just the two.

We have been here many times and visited again lastnight for a quick supper. The staff are always really friendly and genuinely appreciate your custom. Whilst it's not romantic, it's a great atmosphere with a great buzz. Pizzas are some of the best we've tasted, we've taken a vegetarian friend previously and she had plenty of choice. Very reasonably priced... More

This place has ghastly décor. The place is small and the tables cramped, but the food and service are superb. There is a large screen TV playing non stop Italian football. The staff are friendly and clearly know some of the customers. Great atmosphere. If you want something more authentic than Pizza Express/Ask then this is the place! Will return!
