A large group of us came to have dinner here and the food and service were wonderful. Everyone's meal came out correct and tasted great, the salad and dessert were very good, and the wines were a great pairing to the dishes we ate.

met some girlfriends there last night. Excellent waiter. Great food! We all had the Gorgonzola dressing. It is $1.00 up charge, but well worth it! I was expecting it to be creamy like blue cheese dressing but it is not. A delicious balsamic vinegrette base with Gorgonzola crumbles. Delicious!

This is the place to go in Westminster when you want to be spoiled. Ambiance is great, it's definitely a little fancier than most of the local places. The food is amazing. Everything we've had there is delicious. I especially love the pasta dishes. My husband enjoys trying the specials of the evening. I went there with some friends a... More

One may dine outside on the patio, in the dining room or at the bar. The chef's specials are always a good choice and are magnificent. The bruschetta is excellent, but you must order it with extra garlic!! A great choice for dining in Westminster.

We have been here several times when we are in town visiting my parents. It is a great Italian restaurant. The menu selection is quite large and every dish I have gotten has been very good. The portions are very generous so I often get a second meal out of it. You can sit inside or outside when the weather... More

The food is always excellent and the staff friendly. The owners and management team have really created something extra special. We often refer to it as Club Paradisio!

I really like this restaurant. They serve good Italian cuisine and I've been eating here for years. Recently, they remodeled the place and it is now one of the most uncomfortable places in town. They installed padded bench seating along the walls and in the booths that don't match the heights of the tables well. They make me feel like... More

We have been many times and were treated by our friends who thanked us for watching over their home and mowing the lawn while they were away. With it being a Friday night we were in the upstairs dining hall that has a very cool industrial look. The downside was it was VERY noisy and hard to hear each other... More

Paradiso is my favorite restaurant. The food is outstanding. The red sauce is the best I've ever had. I'm a big fan of the chicken (pollo) dishes especially pollo valdostano and my wife loves the seafood with cream sauces. You can't go wrong with any meal.

Nice Restaurant in a very interesting building. We used to go there more often than we do now because it was always good. Recently, however, we have had some good meals and some not so good meals (e.g., tough, grisly veal and a relatively tasteless chicken dish). On the other hand, the fried shrimp from the bar is consistently good;... More
