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.

Four of us decided to try Paradiso Ristorante around 6 pm on a Saturday night. Service was pleasant and prices are inline with the area. They have a smaller, sandwich shop accross the parking lot so be careful not to go to the wrong one. We found out the hard way on a rainy evening. The food was tasty. My... More

Paradiso is a nice little spot to meet friends and enjoy a salad or pizza. Our server was attentive and very friendly.

Enjoyable but pricey. We do love going but can't visit as much as we'd like due to pricing. Our favorite is the Fried Mozzarella Caprese. Delicious and a MUST for every visit.
