This review is for the Saturday brunch buffet. The salads and deserts were incredible but we arrived a bit late and most of the mains were overcooked and the eggs benedict muffin quite chewy. Good selection of brunch items, expected traditional things like eggs benedict...More

My family has enjoyed eating at this restaurant many times during the past 20 years. We have always had great service and excellent food. The Sunday buffet is amazing, and we have taken out-of-town guests there, and they have been very impressed.

We stayed overnight for the 2017 Army Ten Miler race in Pentagon City. Our friends said, "pick an Italian place!" Being I've never been in this town, my restaurant experience was severely limited. This place was a good call with the roll of the dice....More

I went there for dinner and had great pizza. They have a separate room for children for them to play and dine.

I heard a lot of things about Paradiso and the new menu AND specials so I got a Groupon coupon to go there. We were greeted warmly by our server and we were given some rolls with olive oil and pesto for dipping. The dishes...More

I would call 703-922-6222 to see if you can get a better price than what is advertised since you're bringing in 10 people. Normal price is 13.99

Paradiso Ristorante has been part of Alexandria's culture for over 20 years. We have had the pleasure of cooking for thousands of friends and families over the years and hope to continue the tradition for a long time to come. We are a family run restaurant and enjoy cooking recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. The unique services and meals Paradiso provides are the pillars to the restaurants success. Tony and Julia Amato have been passionate about providing the community with an extraordinary Italian meal and a one of a kind dining experience. With services like their Supervised Children's Dining Area, their reputable and astounding Sunday Brunch, professional Catering services and a Lounge that features live bands with no cover charge, it's not hard to believe they have clients who have been dining with them for the 20+ years they've been open. From the staff to the exceptional decor, Paradiso is a restaurant for everyone. Ourdining room setting always feels serene no matter how crowded it gets. The design is eclectic and comfortable, with an air of elegance. Partitioned into a few small rooms, the place provides a homey atmosphere no matter where you sit. Paradiso's interior - natural barn wood, stain glass windows, portraits, topical paintings and posters, elegant mirrors and soft lighting - is an appropriate one for an Italian restaurant whose food is extraordinarily delicious. If you've dined with us recently, we hope to see you again soon! If you've never dined with us before, come give us a try! We guarantee you leave with a satisfied belly and a smile on your face...It's the only way to leave an Italian kitchen. From our family to yours...Buon Appetito!
