Great Italian Restaurant in downtown Kirkland and a nice local hangout in a central location. In the summers, they have an outdoor area which makes people watching even better. The food is good, friendly service, and regular place that we eat at.

Had reservations for a Friday evening, and was seated promptly when we arrived. Restaurant is a tad noisy when full, but you can still talk without yelling at your dining companion. We started with Caesar salads and they were crisp and tasty. Nice selection of wines by the glass. I had the cannelloni and it was very good. Hubby had... More

We enjoyed another great evening with friends at Paradiso. The entrees were delicious, all four of us had a seafood with pasta dish. We were all pleased with our choice! My clams with pasta in a white wine sauce was just perfect. I frequently order this when traveling in Italy and the chef matches the Italian version to a T.... More

The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is good, but not great. That said, I've only been here once so there may be other yummier entrees yet to try. Also, they've been in business for several years so that alone say something about their commitment to cuisine and customer service. The wine menu is extensive and what we've tried is... More

The patio is shaded in the evening - a plus on these warm summer days. The staff is pleasant and the food is delicious. I have been enjoying this restaurant for a long time. The quality is consistent. On recent visits I have ordered fish. Outstanding! The vegetables are always good and cooked just right - a sign of an... More

This is old school Italian at its best ....much like Ristotante Machiavelli in Seattle. Saltimboccas, Picccatas, Cannelloni,Lasagna ....all cooked perfectly. Professional, accommodating , and congenial staff.... Outdoor seating is pet friendly which on recent weekend visit to Kirkland was so welcome. Only complaint would be the wines by the glass.. Not up to the standard of the food. But they... More

I have been here several times; always a great experience. Ambience is elegant and casual at the same time - good menu variety and great wine list (try the Barbera!), delicious food and very good service - attentive without being too much so, nicely paced. With the new Park Lane pedestrian mall in front, it is a great place to... More

I had dinner there on May 29, 2015, the day the new street, Park Lane, was opened for business. I sat outside and enjoyed both the meal and people watching. I had the veal with mushrooms, potatoes and vegetables. Their potatoes are extra good and the veggies were cooked just right. The veal was delicious. It was sliced thinly and... More

I've dined here before, but this visit left me wanting -- Service was attentive but lacked touches like offering fresh grated cheese on the pasta, refilling water glasses. I ordered the lemon chicken with pasta and veggies - pasta was dry and tasteless, but veggies were fresh and well prepared. Chicken was unevenly cooked so part was dry and part... More
