One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.

Our first visit to Paradiso but certainly not our last!!

As a party of four we had a superb meal, deliciously tasty with generous portions. The complimentary bread and oils was a great touch.

What a wonderful restaurant. The staff couldn't of been more accommodating, kind and polite. We had a party of 21 and as it was a wedding they were happy to let us use their evening menu during the day. They also set up an attractive and comfortable private room for us to use. Each of the 3 courses were served... More

There were 10 of us and we were shown to our table immediately on arrival and quickly given menus for both food and drink. However, we then had to wait over 20 minutes before the waitress took our drinks orders and a further 5 before we ordered our food. 9 of our starters arrived fairly quickly but 1 of our... More

We have been a few times and yesterday - a Friday night - was even better than before. The atmosphere was relaxed, buzzing, friendly. The staff are so efficient and welcoming. The food is a slight twist on standard Italian fare and all the better for that. Dishes are well conceived and executed. Early evening menu is amazing cheap for... More

This is about the fourth time I've been to Paradiso, and every time I go I think about how high the quality of the food is. As was the case with each visit, I was welcomed by the owner: Guiseppe - well, rewind: I was given the warmest welcome by Guiseppe, who is amiable enough to be the friend you... More
