Expected so much more .. Have had better food at Mom and Pop for half the money .. For some reason customers rave about this restaurant but everything we ordered was so so nothing amazing .. Ton of money

We visited Paradiso on a Friday night with my daughter, son in law and new grandson. Food was excellent. The crap cake special was the best we've had and that's saying a lot for Maryland Crab cakes! The only disappointment was at the end of the meal trying to get our coffee and dessert. Coffee was late and cold :-(

Took my family there for 18th birthday dinner of one of my daughters. The restaurant itself was impressive and modern. The service was great. The food was, well......bland and boring. My daughter ordered a simple penne in vodka sauce and I honestly think they sent out a different dish. The sauce was NOT vodka sauce, it wasn't even pink. My... More

This was our first visit to Paradiso. The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is wonderful, but as my title stated I didn't think the dish I ordered was very good. (The bread and salad were very good.) We both ordered the Pasta with Vodka Sauce. This vodka sauce was the complete opposite of all of the other vodka sauces we... More

Recommended by our supplier, great food, great service. Had the linguine with white clam sauce - best I have in awhile. Staff was great, friendly, efficent and fast. Rest of the group (5) enjoyed their food too (veal, chicken, seafood). Definitely will return the next time I'm in the area.

Every time we have been to Paradiso the food and service have been outstanding! You can go on a budget or you can go and have a fancy night out. One of the best restaurants in Westminster!

Spur of the moment, my family decided to meet at Paradiso for dinner. For some reason, I thought they served pizza, but that was actually across the parking lot at the pizzeria. Atmosphere was pleasant, and our hostess was very quick to seat us. First time ever I have drank a soda out of a wine glass with a straw.... More

My husband and I have been eating at Paradiso's Ristorante for years and the food and service has always been excellent, and the atmosphere very nice. During our most recent visit with another couple, we were seated upstairs and although the food and service were impeccable, the atmosphere was like that of a Chuck E. Cheese's. We sat adjacent to...

Coming from North New Jersey, we are always reluctant to eat in out of state Italian restaurants not located in major cities. However, we were in the mood for Italian and found Paradisios. We were not disappointed. Located in what used to be an old distillery, we were impressed as soon as we pulled up to the front door. We... More
