Birthday lunch

There were six of us celebrating one of the ladies birthday. We asked for shrimp dish which they did not serve but they let us order another dish with marinara sauce. It was good but I like a spicer sauce which was not offered.

We were pleased to get a quiet table upstairs in the back. We needed calmness after a hectic day. The wait staff were excellent - attentive without hovering. Our meals - Manicotti Fiorentina and pesce al limon - were excellent. Paradiso is always a great choice for a wonderful dining experience.

I had their seafood bisque and it as really good, especially on such a cold day. Other couples got the Italian Wedding soup. A couple people ordered pizza,... More

This past week my family stopped in for dinner. When we arrived there was no one waiting to seat us. After waiting a while we were shown to a table upstairs. It wasn't too crowded up there, but the servers and even the few diners that we saw had a sense of superiority and snobbishness to them because we has... More

This restaurant can be great, but suffers from inconsistency. Very often we are disappointed in the quality and consistency of the entrees. Server try really hard.

My wife and I stopped in to Paradiso this past Saturday night around 6pm. Even though we had not made reservations, they seated us at a fine table in the upstairs dining area. Our server was great and told us about the specials. I ordered the Tornado Paradiso, an 8oz. Filet Mignon with shiitaki mushrooms, roasted red peppers, cabernet wine... More

On a few occasions I was fortunate to catch the ossobuco special at Paradiso. It is the best I have had anywhere! I love Italian food and have eaten at scores of upscale Italian restaurants throughout the U.S. and I must say Paradiso rates up there with the best of them. Every dish I have had has been very well... More

the food was really good, staff was great the restaurant decor was very 80's, but the pub is quaint. However, the prices are ridiculous.
