We arrived at Cafe Paradiso on a Saturday evening, shortly after the normal dinner rush, so we did expect to see a crowd and were a bit worried when there wasn't one. We had called ahead and put our names in just in case. We were seated promptly and professionally. I have to say we were all pretty pleased with our dishes. They also had a decent wine/beer selection. This is a nicer restaurant, but we all showed up in jeans and sweaters, and didn't feel out of place. I got the pick your own pasta dish, with the marinara sauce, priced at 10.95, and I couldnt' finish it all. I even shared some with my mom and there were still leftovers. It also came with 2 meatballs. They weren't really great, but not awful either. I could skip the meatballs next time. Salad was really good, as was the raspberry iced tea.
This is a newer restaurant, and I hope business for them picks up so that next time I'm in Urbana I can visit here again!
