I have been to Paradiso Ristorante a number of times and I have enjoyed my meal everytime I have been there. The food is full of taste, reasonably priced, and the service is very good. I first went with a group for a Mother's Day brunch, and we decided to come back a year later. The brunch spread on Mother's... More

Everything about this restaurant is fantastic! I've never had a bad meal there and have eaten there dozens of times! They have a room for the kids so the parents can eat alone! And they treat you like family there, the likes of which I've never seen. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I've been to Paradiso twice now, and the food is excellent. We love the Gnocchi Tri-Colori, which is a generous serving of gnocchi with three separate sauches; marinara meat sauce, alfredo, and pesto. It is probably our favorite pasta in Northern Virginia, and my wife usually doesn't like pesto, but she loves it here. We tried the pizza last night... More

We have been to Paradiso a number of times because our friends gather there for Karioke on Sunday night. I've had their fabulous desserts at that time but never really had dinner. We decided to give dinner a go last night and we were pleasently surprised. The food was very good. Not the best meal I've ever had but way... More

Tried this place on a whim and I was happy with all aspects of my dining experience. For starters the host and our server were both fantastic. They were accommodating to my friends many requests and knowledgeable and confident regarding my food questions and their recommendations. The garlic knots and rolls are the best I've had. The bread is warm,... More

My wife & I went to Paradiso on a Friday nite to have dinner with a friend. There was plenty of parking, and it was being well used as the place was very busy at 7:30 on a Friday evening. There were plenty of larger parties and families with kids, so if you are one of those people who like... More

I haven't been to Paradiso for a while and decided to give it a try. To begin with, they have the "Baby Amarone" wine that is just to die for at a great price, and although we met for dinner, we decided to have appetizers instead and ordered the mussels in garlic sauce, calamari, and small pizza margarita. The mussels... More

Pizza was great cooked in a real stone fired oven. You can see the oven from the bar. Also lots of different beers to choose from over 160+ bottles and tons of drafts there is something for everyone. The restaurant uses fresh ingredients on their pizzas and it is definitely noticed! Would definitely recommend

Atmosphere: We were seated on the family side, which was more casual and had plastic table cloths and such. They have a kid dining room in the back with small plastic picnic tables and a permanent staff member; plan to use that the next time we go out to dinner with other families. Food: Quality was good. Not the best... More

Paradiso was suggested by my brother-in-law as a local restaurant which would be able to accommodate our annual family birthday dinner. With 9 adults and 5 children, 4 of us celebrating a birthday would be a challenge. The waitstaff were gracious, helpful to reset the tables so that we could all sit together, and their adult-supervised children's room was just... More
