The food was excellent and the wait staff attentive, but with a maximum seating on New Year's Eve, I found the room congested and probably at the limit of seating capacity. Well known as the best restaurant in San Leandro, I found it to be priced more like a great restaurant in San Francisco or Los Angeles. Without any alcoholic... More

I'll start out to say I would have given an additional 5th star if the prices were better. They seem to be a tad on the expensive side for San Leandro. I waited to do this review until going there a 2nd time with friends that I met for dinner who live in the area. They also tend to rate... More

That's what we'd heard anyway... and to be honest, without trying them all in just 3 days there, they're probably right. That afternoon we made reservations though OpenTable for 6 at 8:30 and arrived on time to a packed restaurant. We sat at the bar for a round of drinks. Within approximately 20 minutes we were escorted to our table... More

I had dinner with a couple of my clients at Paradiso and I was pleasantly surprised. The service was great. The food and wine were fantastic. I ordered a seafood entree. The seafood was fresh and it was cooked to perfection. The entree's are on the pricey side and parking is awful. But, overall I enjoyed myself and would definitely... More

Food is very good for this area. Salmon, pastas, seafood salad are all really good. I did not care for the chicken Havlicek (sp). Apple salad and prosciutto is excellent. I return always and am not disappointed.

We had dinner this past weekend with a group of 40 in the banquet room. It was fantastic: the food, the atmosphere and the service from the wonderfully accommodating staff. We had a pre set menu and everything on it was delicious. The wait staff was great about making small adjustments and the food came out relatively fast. It does... More

Celebrated birthday with 20+ in-laws and spouse, including three small children. Chose Paradiso because we enjoyed previous visits, and I'm fond of their linguini with clam sauce. We all enjoyed the variety of entrees and the attentive service. The staff handled our large party, including the children, smoothly and professionally. They served the birthday cake my sister-in-law provided as if... More

I love Paradiso! Consistently great food, great staff and a great wine list. It does get loud and I have taken to sitting in the Wine Bar for a quieter dining experience. The rigatoni bolognese is to die for! Also a great place for brunch. Be sure to try the breakfast pizza!
