I was all geared up for a Chinese meal last evening but my wife fancied Italian so, as usual, I lost the toss so we chose Paradiso, which was about a ten minute walk from our hotel at the Gate, and we weren't disappointed. The service was a little slow but the food was excellent and well worth the wait.... More

Really nice restaurant with very friendly staff. A varied menu that caters for more than the pizza and pasta brigade. Good service, decent prices and excellent food. Great for couples, groups and kids!

Visited here Saturday night. The waiting staff are welcoming and attentive. The food is fantastic and at a fantastic price. We opted for 3 courses at 19.95. Each course is exceptional and beautifully presented. Best restaurant i have been to by far.

It was two of us and we were seated by the bar but they kindly moved us to a booth when some people left. 2 cocktails for £10 👍We both had the spicy Thai fish cakes to start (homemade and a decent portion size) then I had a pizza and my...

My partner and I finally got around to visiting this restaurant last night with two friends and were not disappointed. The music playing was good, a bit of Northern Soul which was great. The service and food was excellent. We had starters of liver, mussels and spicy fish cake followed by scallops, excellent risotto and steak. Overall good food although... More

We went here on a recommendation from a friend, having eaten in so many places in Newcastle over the years we were surprised we hadn't heard of Paradiso before. What a pleasant surprise we got, the meal was excellent, the staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. This really is a hidden gem of a place and fantastic... More

We visited paradiso for an early valentines dinner and as a way of going somewhere new - we are both very busy and don't often get the opportunity to go on dates. I chose the restaurant because of its fantastic reviews and was looking forward to it. When we got there we were sat on a table in the middle... More

Thank you for your feedback, your comments have been passed on to the team. We are sorry that your visit did not live up to your expectations. Our Friday and Saturday nights do get quite busy, which is not to everyone's tastes. However, we do recommend weeknights which are more chilled out and we have a set menu special offer... More

Description
Paradiso Newcastle - NORTH EAST RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016 As voted by the Food Awards England. One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.
