Description: Located in the heart of Downtown Oakville and Historic Village Square, Paradiso offers much more than a place to have an exquisite meal. The warm, intimate atmosphere flows throughout the restaurants but the heart of Paradiso can be found in the open concept kitchen. The cuisine which draws inspiration for the European Mediterranean is prepared before your eyes and it's easy to see why "Dinner IS The Show" keeps guests coming back again and again. Paradiso offers innovative entertaining concepts for corporate team building events, winemaker's dinners, and weekly recreational hands-on cooking classes in the Cooking Studio. The interactive cooking classes at Paradiso cater to individuals and groups, and Read admits these popular classes book up very quickly. The recreational classes are inspired by culinary Mediterranean regions such as Italy, Greece, Spain and France. The Cooking Studio also offers classes for those who want to hone their skills. The most popular class is the Signature Dishes of Paradiso. The culinary team building classes promote collaboration and communication between team members. Co-workers enjoy a unique and rewarding hands-on cooking experience that nurtures teamwork and leadership.

Nice middle of the road bistro and great outdoor patio! Love the Crab Ravioli. They also have nice room in the back for small gatherings.

You can also order take out which is great.

Thanks Jan C for posting your comments. Good recommendation on the back room...since "Dinner is the Show!" due to our open concept kitchen it can be a little noisy, but the back room is typically quiet. Look forward to seeing you again soon!

Have been there twice. Both times was seated in the worst table in the restaurant. They were busy and service was very slow. The food was mediocre. There are better restaurants in Oakville with superior sevice and at comparable price.

Visited this place on the spur of the moment while we were visiting downton Oakville. 2 adults 2 older kids. We eat out regularly.
Service was excellent, place had a nice feel to it and the food was top notch. Every app and every entree was delicious and you could really tell the attention to detail and the subtle flavours infused in all the dishes. The bonus was the prices we very reasonable for the quality of the food.

Went to this restaurant on Saturday November 16, 2013 and it was below average. My steak looked and tasted like it had just been purchased from the local grocery store and taken out of the plastic and styrofoam package. It was very grisly and absolutely tasteless, certainly was NOT worth the $30.00 price tag. At no point did the waitress come over and ask any of us if everything was ok...a party of 6 people. There were no hand towels in the bathrooms even after I told 2 different female waitresses. Very disappointing. Will not recommend or eat there again.
