I have dined at Paradiso more times than I can remember! It is 1) the only decent upscale restaurant in San Leandro and 2) always reliable quality and presentation of food! Cocktails are always spot on too. The only thing that is sometimes remiss is...More

Ranges from exotic pizza oven offerings to great and interesting entrees and appetizers. Good bar, friendly servers. Weekends get crowded. No need to go past San Leandro for a great food experience.

Good food, wide range of menu options, great service. Even traditional entrees like gyros (which were very tasty) presented in a fresh and updated manner. Only watchout is that the noise level made it difficult to hear at times during lunch.

This is our "go to" spot for a meal that never disappoints. Pizzas and pastas are great, -and they offer gluten free options. The wait times are never as long as they predict, but better to have a reservation on weekend evenings. The tiramisu that...More
