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.

Paradiso is a hidden gem in Newcastle, the staff are friendly and helpful and the pasta can't be beaten... very reasonable prices for such lovely food. We always feel looked after and satified whether we are coming to sit in for a meal or take away their food for lunch at work. My favourite restaurant in Newcastle without a doubt!

How have we not been to Paradiso before!! We had our usual catch-up due and were wondering where to try when this restaurant was recommended. What a great choice, we were meeting at tea-time so were very early but nothing was a bother to the staff. There is a good atmosphere about even though it was not full. The starter... More

Visited here with husband and 2 adult sons on a Friday evening. Reading the reviews before booking, I was hoping for a fantastic Italian dining experience. Wrong, i'm surprised just how highly this average restaurant ranks. So i'll keep this concise, Staff are friendly enough, although as has been said by other reviewers one staff member does has a BO... More
