This restaurant pretends to be Italian. We should have known when entering by the very untidy looking staff and garden setting that looked truly tired ( agree with earlier comment re the "bunnings plastic trestle table" we should have walked back out. Once seated we looked at the very limited and bottom of the rung wine list and were struggling to find a good choice. My husband ordered the Lambrusco ( to be safe) but was later told they were all out. Surprise surprise! Dining with young kids we just ordered bread with olive oil and balsamic for entree, 20 mins later some limp bread & no oil etc arrived. 1 hr 15 later still no food to be told that as we didn't have a booking we WAIT untill those who came after us were fed..... Interesting way to run a restaurant! So we left! With sleeping child. Couldn't rate the food as we had none to speak of. Witnessed many pizzas being made and given to takeaway customers though! Beware of the elderly untidy senior waitress that deals with customers with such disdain. Her behind my back, but heard comment after I finally complained was "anything else?" I can only assume they have customers regularly walking out! With this type of response. Worse restaurant on the Sunshine Coast!

Been here several times: great pizzas and a little different. A really copmprehensive and interesting take away pizza menu. We'll eat there again...definitely.

Worst service we have ever received. Went to Cafe Paradiso every weekend for 2pizza for $20 deal. Rarely the pizzas were on time, even after a 35min wait, you would sometimes wait over an hour.
Customer service skills from this place are ridiculous. So slack, and a terrible example of the Sunshine Coasts service standards.
Pizza always tasted fresh, but for the amount of horrid service we recieved, we will never return, nor would we advise friends to go there.

For an Italian themed restaurant, it sure lacked that homely Italian feel. The table we had was PVC trestle table near the toilet and ours did not have a table cloth. Service was very ordinary and took ages to have our order taken. We nearly walked out. Only good point was that the food tasted quite nice (when it finally arrived), but not a very big serve at all. The bill was a little over the top, so not very good value for money either. Flashing Xmas lights in your face just doesn't cut it. Would not recommend and will not go again.
