We were looking for a restaurant that the locals frequented in Venice, and after successfully ignoring the annoying street promoters trying to entice us into their restaurants, we found Paradiso. The waiter was quite frank and a little snooty in telling us that we could only have a table until 8:30. However, we grabbed one near the bar and settled in for about an hour and a half. Plenty of time to soak up the experience. We asked the waiter to bring us a plate of cicchetti, and the food was delicious! Yes, it was microwaved before serving, but still quite yummy - in fact, we went back for seconds. There was live music in the restaurant section, which we were able to hear and enjoy. In general, we would prefer a restaurant where the tables are hard to come by over one where the owners are accosting you in the street any day (those are usually BIG disappointments.) Great fun, and a highlight of our trip to Venice.
