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.

Good night out again

Third visit and was glad we returned, food excellent with great service. Even though we arrived early we were shown to our table and enjoyed a relaxed unrushed meal. The restaurant was fairly busy but you were not ignored, would recommend and would return.

Eat here before 9 months ago and really enjoyed it. So, was really looking forward to the meal. Sadly, the service was so slow I didn't have time to eat as my food took nearly an hour to arrive. What little I did eat tasted great and the staff were good enough to bag up the food for me which... More

Just wanted a quick bite after a film, and it did not disappoint! We have not been for a while, but it was as good as we remembered. The food was delicious, and the service friendly and really excellent: he got a bigger tip than usual, which if you know my wife, is praise indeed! Long may Paradiso continue!

We went on a busy Friday evening, we booked and was shown straight to our table. My first impression was how noisy it was, but it made for a good atmosphere, I think the acoustics in the building make it noisy, but some may not like this. I had lamb skewer for starter and it was very tasty, my friends... More

Have been here many times, tonight we arrived at 6.30 it was very busy and we had no booking. The waiter asked us to wait, he went to the co-owner Giuseppe who recognised us and found us a table. He came and welcomed us, so friendly as usual. I had the mussels in a tomato chilly sauce, lovely plump mussels... More
