It seems whenever I ask my family where they want to eat for their birthday or other special occasion, Paravicini's is the answer I get most.
Just recently, my son selected Paravicini's for his High School Graduation dinner.
We had out-of-state relatives with us, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The biggest hit was the Italian Lemon Berry Cake. Even my husband, who does not like sweets, had a few bites. By the way, I was born in Italian, and compare all Italian food to my mother's cooking, and she even liked this restaurant.

Excellent Italian food with an expansive menu. I've ordered several of the entrees and have not been disappointed at all. Service was very good, even though the place was packed. Reservations are recommended.

The BEST Italian food in El Paso county. New York City style food without the prices. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. Didn't have room to try everything on the menu but definitely going back for more.
Thank you Paravicini's.

Loved this place! While only 15 years old, it feels like it has been there for 50 years or more. Run by an Italian family with the kids working at the place until they go to college, it has all the hallmarks of Italian greats. They have the classic dishes, a number of surprisingly good house creations, full range of pastas and steaks. Overall food was strong.

Highly recommended - Wedding soup (amazing - so good kids stole most of mine), veal funghi, lasagna and the bruschetta

Seating wise - ask for the back room as the kitchen is open to the main space making it a bit warm albeit charming.

Cookbook - chef has his own cookbook. Bought it trying to get ideas re how to make the wedding soup at home.

When selecting this Italian restaurant with so many great reviews I was ready for bold & full flavor. Our dishes were Chicken Piccata & Cod. At first it has a surprisingly mild taste which confused the tastebuds. No smell of garlic or heavy spices, just wonderfully prepared "light" food. At the halfway point I came to realize it was good, very good. Both dishes were the same where the food & a little spice enhances the dish vs overpowering and carrying the flavor.

Definitely deserved all of the great reviews.

Thanks Paravicini's...
