All dishes looked spectacular, but we could only eat two of them! The family (owners) were attentive, warm, inviting and entertaining. The food was homemade and delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant was vibrant.

Lively, compact restaurant with very entertaining and efficient Italian family cum staff. Please book as they offer seating times. We opted for 8.30pm and it was full on a Thursday night. Good menu and comprehensive specials board which we both took advantage of. Lobster soup followed by a Sicilian pork sausage pasta and a strawberry trifle dish for hubby and... More

We were hungry and have had our fill of pub food. We were wandering down Walmgate, we asked a local where to eat. He suggested, Il Paradiso Del Cibo. It fills up fast and reservations are probably needed. The food was wonderful!

This resturant looks nothing from the outside, old worn table and a couple of chairs sitting outside the window but by the noise and hustle and bustle from inside made my husband and I enter, and so glad we did. Visited 15/07/15 The service was very attentive, the food was lovely and totally shocked at how very reasonable the bill... More

This has got to be the best most authentic trattoria this side of Italy. The menu changes constantly, always good, service is excellent, and very reasonably priced

Great food. Traditional Italian. Lively atmosphere with great friendly service. I had the scampi risotto. My son ordered tomato soup instead of the tomato pizza bread which caused some surprise and hilarity when it was served with our main courses. However the staff were really happy to change it with no trouble at all. The desserts were lovely. All in... More

Just returned from il paradiso del cibo, what a fantastic place to eat! The food, wine and service was excellent! My partner had the sea bream, all that he left was the head, tail and skeleton! This was our first visit and we will definitely return! Lovely fresh food, well cooked and nicely presented!
