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

A romantic spot when you need it, and a great sunny patio in the summer for lunch or an early dinner. Always busy, always great food, always a favorite spot with my sweetie or with friends.

The service is so good here, it almost outshines the food. The servers are friendly and efficient. They make sure you have a nice evening! The food is very good Italian food. They do great seafood dishes.I enjoyed clams on pasta with white wine sauce and my husband enjoyed a mixed seafood dish on Linguine. The Caesar is very good... More

I've been eating at Paradiso for years. I live in Kirkland so it's easy to do. The owner is the real deal Italian born and trained in Naples Italy. I'm also Italian and grew up eating great Italian food. The food each and every time is truly excellent. I've never been disappointed. I recommend just about everything since I've eaten... More

We dined here the other evening with little expectation and the restaurant proved to be just what we wanted... simple Italian American fare. Perfectly cooked veal and pasta..great service and a very reasonable wine list. Looking forward to going back.

We chose this restaurant as it smelled so delicious when we walked by. Had a nice table outside. Our server, Kristi, was excellent. We left the wine choice to her as their wine list is so extensive. She made a perfect choice for us. Both of us had pasta which was also top notch. Would definitely recommend it.

There is better Italian food not far from here (Café Juanita) but the ambience, location and service helps to keep this place going. The food was pretty straight down the middle - not a ton of creativity, even with so much fresh foods in season locally.

This is a solid choice for moderately upscale dining in downtown Kirkland. First of all, the service is top notch. Rhonda, our table server, couldn't have been nicer. She was very informative as to the menu and the wine list. She even comped us our desert, having surmised it was a special occasion (our anniversary) from the table conversation. Same... More
