“awesome dining experience”
Reviewed November 5, 2009

We loved Cinema Paradiso, even though we had to wait for almost two hours to get a table. But I guess this was part of the fun, we waited at the bar, had a few glasses of excellent white wine.. the service was extremely friendly, quick, everything you could ask for. The food was very good, the menu list is short but that's a good thing! There's something for everyone. And the atmosphere is amazing, it's loud for sure, but that adds to the good atmosphere. And we were positively surprised with the bill!
Make it an evening and go there, it's worth the wait.

“Don't go if you're hungry”
Reviewed September 15, 2008

Beautiful space, nicely set table, good cold starters.

However, I couldn't tell you any more as after 1.5 hours, our main courses still hadn't come. In fact, as we were able to watch the kitchen staff (bickering amongst themselves/getting stroppy with the waiting staff), we could see that our pizzas hadn't even been made, or put into the oven as yet even though the restaurant was almost entirely empty.

After asking where our food was several times, and being met with a shrug, we gave up and left.
