Quaint restaurant with excellent food

The restaurant is pleasant and well located to my hotel. The price was reasonable for an appetizer, main and glass of wine. Wait staff were attentive and helpful.

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

You have to hand it to a place that offers you a delightfully restful refuge from all the construction noise and activity outside. We were actually not even aware of all that, forgetting it as soon as we were shown to our table in the front. Though the tables in the inner room were just as nice. The lunch menu... More

I can't remember the first time I went to Ristorante Paradiso, but it was over 20 years ago, and we've been coming back ever since. The ambience is perfect for a giant graduation party, like the one I hosted in 2007, to the romantic anniversary dinners my husband and I annually celebrate here. The food is delicious - the best...

Finding a respectable, enjoyable and tasty Italian experience on the Eastside of Seattle can be challenging. This restaurant clearly fills the bill. What I liked the most: 1) Superb, attentive service; 2) Hot, fresh delicious home made bread delivered promptly after drink orders were taken; 3) Good house wine by the glass choices for very reasonable prices; 4) A nice,...

First timers, and we enjoyed the ambiance. Even on a Monday it was a lively, even with the street torn up in the front, which means to me that this is a neighborhood treasure. Three of us gave our dinners a 4 out of 5 star, the fourth loved the flavor of his dish, but felt the temperature was cold,... More

Paradiso delivers good Italian food night after night in Kirkland! We love their seafood dishes . The clam dish with linguine is delicious and the mixed shellfish dish is another favorite. We were here on a Monday night and the place was packed, yet the hostess was efficient and Louis, our waiter offered us friendly and efficient service. This brings... More

We ordered off of the regular dining menu with really poor results. To be fair, this place is cute in person and might be tasty for a night out. But for take out...well...not so great. It tasted like microwaved fast food and of very poor quality. We were hoping, given the great reviews, it would be good for take out,... More

There is no competition for a traditional Italian restaurant.in the vicinity. Reliable fare. Nothing memorable but nothing bad?

Hankering for some true, old-world Italian cooking? You know the kind...like that trattoria in that hillside village where you and your other half shared some home-made pasta, hand-pressed olive oil, and artfully shredded parmesan under the Tuscan moonlight? Throw in generous wine list, addictive freshly-baked rolls, and first-rate staff, and you have an idea of what awaits you at Ristorante... More
