Description: Paradiso Ristorante has been part of Alexandria's culture for over 20 years. We have had the pleasure of cooking for thousands of friends and families over the years and hope to continue the tradition for a long time to come. We are a family run restaurant and enjoy cooking recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. The unique services and meals Paradiso provides are the pillars to the restaurants success. Tony and Julia Amato have been passionate about providing the community with an extraordinary Italian meal and a one of a kind dining experience. With services like their Supervised Children's Dining Area, their reputable and astounding Sunday Brunch, professional Catering services and a Lounge that features live bands with no cover charge, it's not hard to believe they have clients who have been dining with them for the 20+ years they've been open. From the staff to the exceptional decor, Paradiso is a restaurant for everyone. Ourdining room setting always feels serene no matter how crowded it gets. The design is eclectic and comfortable, with an air of elegance. Partitioned into a few small rooms, the place provides a homey atmosphere no matter where you sit. Paradiso's interior - natural barn wood, stain glass windows, portraits, topical paintings and posters, elegant mirrors and soft lighting - is an appropriate one for an Italian restaurant whose food is extraordinarily delicious. If you've dined with us recently, we hope to see you again soon! If you've never dined with us before, come give us a try! We guarantee you leave with a satisfied belly and a smile on your face...It's the only way to leave an Italian kitchen. From our family to yours...Buon Appetito!

When we need to take a break and want great food and service we like to go to Paradiso Restaurant. The chicken Marsala, lamb chops were great! We also loved the pasta with the vodka sauce.

This place is great for parents with kids. The brunch is a great price; the food is surprisingly good; and there's a separate dining room for the kids so the adults can have a semi-undisturbed dining experience.

My father recently hosted his 50th birthday party here. I was so impressed with the service. The staff was on-time and prepared for whatever we had planned; the hospitality and flexibility of the restaurant definitely should be recognized as 5-star venue. All of the waiters were very friendly and helpful, they assisted us in setting up our decorations. The food was absolutely delicious and Paradiso did a great job with our buffet menu. I could tell that they were passionate about making it a wonderful night for my father. They exceeded our expectations and I am so grateful for their hard work because it was a successful and memorable night. Thank you Paradiso!!

The sunday brunch was phenomenal. The taste, the price and the menu was worth the time and the money. They had 3 types of brick-oven cooked pizza, their choices of entree was exquisite.
