Definitely worth crossing the threshold

From the outside this place looks unprepossessing, but it's definitely worth an investigation. Tasty food and good wine served without pomp. We ate and enjoyed two starters instead of main courses. For a Monday lunch time the places was buzzing.with both locals and visitors.

Great Italian restaurant. Seems authentic - staff were from Italy and there were a few groups of Italians there. Staff were friendly, chatting to customers, giving recommendations. Good price for the quality of food.

Our Sunday evening dinner was a sumptuous delight of bread and olives, then mussels in a saffron cream, followed by hand made pasta with steak and truffle oil. The food is without a doubt excellent and the charming Italian gentlemen who attend to front of house know their food and wine so can make excellent recommendations, it is just a... More

Another superb night at Il Paridiso. The food is delicious and unsurpassed as far as Italian food is concerned. The friendly waiters cannot do enough and provide Caberet entertainment with their good humour and banter ............never dissapoint ! Food worthy of a michelin star

I see that huskyjunky has submitted a second scathing review in Feb 2015 despite not returning to the restaurant, so here goes..... I regularly go to this wonderful restaurant for the great food, friendly atmosphere and helpful staff - it may be quirky with cash payments/lively decor and has recently updated it's kitchens to comply with environmental health concerns, but...

Being a couple of free spirits that don't like to plan meals in advance, we always struggle to get a table by walking in due to this place being so popular (and small). Anyway, as we were walking past on Sunday night and remembered they had had some bad publicity recently from something that happened a long time ago, and... More
