Great Food

Three of us went on a Friday evening. It was early, so we did not have the noise problem that some reviewers noted. I had saltimbocca, my wife had lasagna. Don't recall what the third person (a friend) had. The veal was so tender. My wife said the lasagna was the best she'd had in a restaurant for... read more

Went here because a co-worker raved about it. It's decent but for the prices, I would go elsewhere. The flavors are just a little off and the portion sizes aren't great. Not to mention I most definitely got sick after eating here but I have a sensitive stomach compared to most so take that with a grain of salt.

Our meals were flavorful and not overwhelmingly large. There was plenty of food on our plates. My husband loved his veal dish! I had a gnocchi dish with sausage in it that was pretty good. The atmosphere was nice. The food was good and the service was good. It wasn't extraordinary, but I would eat there again.

The atmosphere is quaint and I love that the outdoor dining has improved since Park Lane was reworked. Great wines and the chicken picatta was wonderful.

Stepped out of a rainy night into a warm & welcoming environment. There were several large seatings (holiday time), so noise level was heavy, until the area cleared a bit. A goodmen.

We've been going to Ristorante Paradiso for at least a decade. Although it has fewer pasta options than other Italian restaurants in the area (such as Firenze in Bellevue for example), the front of the house has always made an effort to get to know people and welcome them back, and know their special likes. Enter Lewis the waiter. If... More

We dine here for a family get-together once a year . Sunday we enjoyed rack of lamb, pork tenderloin,swordfish, veal scaloppini and Sardinian wine. Top it off with bread fresh from the oven, caprese salad, and lemon sorbet served in a real lemon shell. This place is at the top of our list locally. It gets a little loud but... More

Kirkland is a nice town with lots of restaurants, this one is my family favorite, from the kitchen baked rolls, to the wine list, the soups, desserts and main courses. But the best part is the attentive, pleasant and very helpful staff. You feel like an honored guest. At times, when pretty full it does get noisy, but everything is... More

When I moved her from NY, you could not get a decent (let alone good) Italian meal anywhere in the Seattle Eastside area. That has changed, thankfully and Paradiso is among the best around. Specializing in Sardinian style Italian food, the pasta is sublime and the wine list extensive. "Sister" restaurant Sardinia in Redmond also quite good.

We come here often, it's one of our favorites. We're so glad there's an Italian restaurant of this caliber in our own backyard of Kirkland. They've been here well over 20 years and for good reason — consistently great Italian food, knowledgable staff, fair prices and great ambience. Everything we've had has been excellent. I especially like the Linguine Tutto... More
