We have been visiting Paradiso for many years and its still our favorite! The food is amazing and their specials are wonderful! Great prices for generous portions! Love the atmosphere upstairs in the fall/winter, and downstairs for lunch. Love the bar area for dinner sometimes, too. Matt W. is the best server - ask for him!

I went with a good friend for dinner. Loved everything about the restaurant. They do having outside dining and if it was cooler, it would have been fun. However, the service was excellent along with the large menu. I chose the veal with a cognac sauce and my friend chose the veal with salmon with a wine sauce. Salad was... More

Best Italian restaurant in Westminster. Consistent good food, nice atmosphere, good service. Especially fond of the penne with sausage, the fettuccini con gronchi (crab), and their steaks are good too. Can't go wrong.

Paradiso's has been my go-to restaurant for the past 11 years when I want a great atmosphere coupled with great food. I have had most of their dishes and have not had one bite that wasn't perfect. The specials are always great - Italian, seafood, steak...all wonderful dishes.

I went here for a work luncheon. The service was good, the food was good and the prices were reasonable. The room we were in was a bit odd with the lady's room opening right into the dining area? It was okay but some place that I have considered going back to when considering where to eat out.

This is a really good Italian Restaurant. I get the best eggplant Parmesan and my husband love the sausage, beef and pasta one. And for lunch, they make their own thin potato chips. I go with family, friends, or by myself. The upstairs has a view of more of downtown Westminster but I don't do the steps. One downside, no... More

Good local Italian place to go. Atmosphere and service ok, but the food is usually very good. Different specials and good menu staples. Wine list is ok. Have never had a really bad meal there.

We had a very nice dinner upstairs by the fireplace. Pleasant surroundings and nice service. Salads were simple and the warm bread tasty. Chicken Parmesan was excellent but the chicken Modena was just so-so. We were too full for desert and truly enjoyed the dinner by the fire on a cold and snowy winters night.
