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

I liked everything about dining upstairs at Paradisos. Tablecloths and candles. Atmosphere is very nice. Service was very good and the food was excellent. Dessert was the best.

Paradiso is in my home town and I eat there every month or so. Being vegetarian, Italian, is often a safe bet. I am partial to their spaghetti with a house marinara- tasty and filling. I must say in the interest of variety I seldom stray from this standard- I enjoy it, they do a fine job of preparing it... More

When I want a great meal and a relaxing evening, Paradiso is tops in Westminster. My wife and I eat there often and have never had a bad meal. The bar can get noisy and crowded at time, but if there is a seat open, that is a great place to eat. The upstairs dining rooms are good for larger... More

Paradiso is a wonderful restaurant with a great menu. My wife and I have been eating at Paradiso's for over 20 years. The specials are the bomb with delicious sauces and varieties. I highly recommend this restaurant.
