Al Paradiso is a little off the beaten track which adds to its charm. We had a very good meal our last night in Venice. We struck up a conversation with people at another table, and were allowed to enjoy a leisurely meal without rushing. The food was excellent and the service superb.

i have to admit that the branzino was good, the way it was presented was very poor (although we asked for vegetables aside it came all on one plate). the appetizer and even more so the dessert was in terms of quality below every poor expectation you may have. their only interest is to ripp you off. never again.

Fresh and traditional menu with amazing personal service from the owner. Great daily specials and customized dishes to our liking. Really enjoyed this Venetian hospitality. Kids loved home made pasta and freshly baked bread.

We two adults and two children had one of the best meals ever at Al Paradiso. The owner couldn't do enough for us and was more than happy to have the chef make anything the kids wanted. Service was very good and the meals BRILLIANT! When back in Venice we will be making a point of going back to this... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by the concierge of the Hotel Monaco, promising excellent food. It is situated down a dark alleyway, no view whatever. On arrival with several tables to choose from, there were two small ones either side of the entrance (suitable for two people) and asked could I have the one on the left. Shouted at... More

Went to dinner here for our anniversary, per recommendation from the concierge at the Westin hotel. We really enjoyed the food and the staff was very friendly. Atmosphere is peaceful and romantic. I highly recommend this restaurant to couples who are visiting Venice.

You probably read the other reviews already, off the beaten track, felt like we were in a different Venice, no crowds. We were here 6 years ago, liked it so much we ate there twice (doing that again this trip). If you read any of my other reviews we like to go to a restaurant when it just opens for... More

We went here last night on the strength of TA reports and were not disappointed. In fact, I had the best fegato Veneziana ever...it was truly sensational. In fact, the whole meal was wonderful and the two of us had different courses with which we were completely satisfied. The chef is first class and the staff ( all ladies) are... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Al Paradiso with family and friends recently in Venice. Our friends live it Italy and recommended the restaurant and we were not disappointed in the food. It was a hot day and we expected to have seating inside, but the small inside seating was fully booked / reserved for another party so we sat... More
