Enjoyed a dinner for four and was pleasantly surprised with the very good food and service. One of the chairs had some "spare" parsley on it when we were seated, but other than that the decor was quite nice and well tended. For some reason everyone had a lamb dish, and everyone was pleased with their choices. The lamb shank... More

Paradiso continues to shine above other East Bay restaurants! We went to celebrate our anniversary. The crab and avocado tower appetizer was excellent, and the wood roasted chicken was moist and juicy. Perfection. Careful service. Wonderful ambiance. Go for a celebration or just for a great meal.
