Unexpectedly excellent Italian food in a traditional setting with nice background music and starched tablecloths. Parking right upfront in the street. Reasonable selection of Italian wine by the glass. Great prices. My Australian lamb chops were super tender cooked to my order. Wife's salmon was fingerlicking good. Lava cake-delish. Compliments to wait staff. Will come again.

Visited with my family - 4 adults and we gave the menu a good test. It was a Wed night and the entry bar area was alive and full, we dined in the dining area at rear - which suited our needs perfectly. It is a smart layout with two distinct dining areas. Tried the Scampi, mussels, Buffalo Mozza appies... More

This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed - EVERYTHING. Our meals tasted so fresh and delicious. The apple blossom dessert is well worth the calories. In addition, out waitress was very good. She was pleasant, attentive and professional. The bussers were very efficient - always on top of things. We will definitely return.

I think someone is stacking the deck with these Trip Advisor reviews of this restaurant. Since I was from out of town, I went here based upon previous yelp reviews. I was disappointed with my experience. They honored our reservations on time. The bread with dipping oil came out fast. The bread was fresh and the dipping oil was tasty.... More

This restaurant is a very good place for a meal. The Italian style food and the really, really great staff make this a fine choice for a nite out at a local restaurant. We have never had a poor or unsatisfying meal here. It lacks good parking,but in evening hours the T lot across the st. is available. The redecorated... More

If your looking for good Italian food and a good atmosphere the paridiso is the place to go. They have great drinks and if you get a seat in the bar area make sure you get a margarita from Kim.

This is a small place with a great bar and dining room. The food is awesome. It is a local place near the train station in a great town.

This restaurant has bumped up its game over the last year. The last two times we have dined there, it has been way above expectations. The atmosphere is nice and the wait staff excellent. Go for the food and the fine drinks

If you have not tried the Paradiso Ristorante you must give it a try. It is the best Italian food on the Northshore. No need to go to the North End. I have them make me a veal dish that is no longer on the menu - it is veal, mushroom with plum tomato sauce along with three shrimp and... More
