We first ate here on a trip to the Cinque Terre 8 years ago. Having returned to La Spezia we made a point of coming back....and we were not disappointed. We had the Misto Di Mare for two and it was the best seafood selection of dishes we've had anywhere! If you like seafood then you MUST order this dish....it... More

With many touring groups stopping here, Il Paradiso is a bustling place almost like an Autogrill. Quickly prepared fried foods and okay pizza dominate the menu. The food is average for Italy but still quite good. Service is rushed.

We arrived a bit late.... they closed the kitchen ... we could not enjoy food at la carte but they said the pizza corner still open and desserts. The pizza was very good, the house wine also nice...the best dessert..... lovely handmade cheesecakes and etc. I do recommend going to this place.

We stumbled upon Il Paradiso del Golfo while working our way from Genoa to Riomaggio and were hungry, so figured this would be a good place to get some food before we had to get out and find hotels and settle down. The view from the front deck is amazing overlooking the city and sea below. We saw there was... More

The pizza and the service were outstanding. We had stayed only a few kilometers towards Riomaggori and stumbled onto this wonderful place. It is frequented mainly by locals. The view over the city of La Spezia is wonderful at night.

On the way back from a blocked road near Vernazza we needed lunch. And we were very lucky that we could order just before ( actually after) the kitchen closed. A very good Cotoletto Milanese was enjoyed in this quite OK anlong the road restaurant. Very friendly staff.
