Always talked about, often with great fondness is Il Paradiso del Cibo. My first visit was for a slice of pizza when it was more like a deli 7 years ago but it has got bigger and gained reputation so that it now has two rooms and though it can be cosy (and noisy if football is on the TV... More

Recommended by a friend, and so glad it was. The food was excellent and so was the welcome and the service. There was a fantastic atmosphere which you felt the minute you walked through the door. My friend and I ate here on a busy Saturday night and could not fault the place, it felt very authentic. The food was... More

It's not often you can combine tasty authentic food, an excellent atmosphere, friendly service and a more than satisfactory price, but Il Paradiso does this with effortless grace. I highly recommend that you visit this restaurant.

We called here on the off chance while out & about, & have now put a pin in our map for this little diamond! All I can say is bellisimo - if that's how it's spelt - it will have you walk out with the feeling you have left something special behind, and a true diners contentment. :)

We ate here with friends who like to dine early and so we were in our seats at 6pm. Our host was already in fine form, recommending various dishes and joking with us in what is his second language. The food arrived quickly and though relatively simple was delicious. The recommendations and menu descriptions were totally accurate. The bill for... More

I was recommended this place and could only get a table for 8 at 6.30pm. Apart from being told "it was a great little Italian" I had no idea what to expect. When I arrived and saw the smallness of the place which was packed I was concerned. I needn't have been, the whole meal including service, ambience, food far... More

A fantastic little gem of a restaurant providing all the ingredients for an enjoyable evening. Arrived half an hour early from booking and was packed (6.20 on a Friday......impressive) realised later it was due to a meal deal, bonus!!! Staff were lovely, funny and charming, food delicious- home made and moorish (recommend tiramisu for pudding as well) everything coming out... More

I can never find enough superlatives for my opinion of this "little piece" of Italian eatery. . From entering to leaving is my Favourite place to be. The greeting my family and I get is just the "STARTER" .After that is just like being at home. We have been so many times and now are classed as "FAMILY". If you... More

Have visited the resturant a few times and have not been disapointed. Pizzas look amazing and thin crust, pasta dishes look authentic and the steaks are so good that the resturant challenges you to see if you have had better-we havent! You will need to book as it gets very busy but worth it.

Probably one of the best - great food, service, atmosphere, value (did I mention the food??). It's small, it's a bit loud, it's soooo Sicilian, and it's great. Don't go there or there won't be room for us
