The place was packed, but service didn't suffer. Would definitely go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in a tiny villageParadiso attracted people from the first day of opening. We have gone there so many times we lost count. They did a wonderful job setting up tables for 20 friends at one time. Please note that Noise Level is low because I am deaf. :-)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious till the endThe ladies and I went for Mother's Day. We had never been to this restaurant before and had a fun experience. We enjoyed the Portobello mushroom tempura appetizer with chipotle aioli dipping sauce. Yum. We all had different entrees but no one had a single complaint. We all enjoyed our meals and had enough room for dessert. Everything was delightful and there were no left overs to take home. Bravo.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMParadisoHad a fantastic anniversary dinner here. Service and food were excellent. Dinners selected were lamb shank and lobster raviolis. Both cooked to perfection and served hot. Attentive but not buggy service. My only concern was how close our table was to the next. Make a reservation if going after 5:30. Looking forward to our next dinner there.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the better restaurantsWe've been going to Paradiso for a number of years now and it never fails to have the best food, ambiance and service we've experienced. Even if things don't go exactly right, Paradiso makes good-faith attempts to fix it. We always recommend it to our friends and neighbors.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest resturant in SLI love introducing new people to our little "White tablecloth place" here in SL. Particularly San Francisco sophisticates. I don't tell them anything about Paradiso's up front. I just let this special restaurant win them over. I truly get a kick out of watching newcomers get there socks knocked off by the friendly service and excellent food of my secret restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful date night getaway!I took my girlfriend here for a night to de-stress from the work week and from school. We were both very pleased with our evening and choices overall. The waiter was very knowledgable in suggesting drinks and food and appetizers based on what we were feeling and that was a refreshing feeling. The food was very well prepared and we also enjoyed that very much we will be returning to paradiso. I had been there before and going a second time was even more of a treat. :-) next time we will get dessert.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM10 for 10I took a group of ten co-workers to Paradiso based only on a random web search. All ten plates went back without a speck of food on them. Everything was amazing, and perfectly prepared. On top of that, the service was excellent. One server handled dinner and drinks for a table of 10, with absolutely no delays!
I will return to Paradiso every time I'm in San Leandro.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is now our go to spot!This is now our go to spot! Very efficient, friendly staff, the pork tenderloin was the best I've ever had!!! Outstanding!!!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated immediatelyWe were seated immediately upon our arrival - Resv @ 6:30. Place was already quite busy. Cocktails delish. My guest ordered the single pork chop which appeared to be overcooked but guest said it was juicy inside. Good trick for pork. My scallops were a little overdone for me. Accompanying fries were crispy and hot. YUMMY Complimentary tiramisu for the b-day girl. Our server, Hannah, was friendly, competent and patient. Paradiso is a neighborhood gem.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been looking for a greatI've been looking for a great brunch option in the San Leandro area and Pardiso hits the spot! Their menu options are a twist on classic dishes - just different enough to be refreshing while satisfying the craving for an old favorite. Their coffee is also excellent and the staff were very attentive.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMParadiso has become a regularParadiso has become a regular for us. The food is consistently excellent and they have an exceptional wine by the glass selection. The specials are noteworthy and we tend to order from that menu, although everything I have had from the regular menu has been delicious. The paella I had the other evening, although not traditional was spectacular.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food and a lovely timeWe made reservation through Open Table. We got there a little bit early, but they seated the 5 of us right away. It was busy for a thursday night, it gets a little loud - but not too bad.
Food was excellent as usual. I had the seared scallops, my wife had the rigatoni (she said it was delicious!). Great go to neighborhood restaurant. We love it!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMParadiso is paradiseThe atmosphere and location is very unique, the menu and service is outstanding!

It was a casual upscale atmosphere of what appeared as locals young and old. I was surprised how big inside it was and the full bar looked very inviting with plenty of seating for eating and drinking at the bar.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated immediately upon arrival.Seated immediately upon arrival.

Tasty cocktails, great tuna and hanger steak entrees plus daily specials (like lamb chops over a caprese salad appetizer!), and a tasty dessert menu. Attentive and knowledgeable wait staff and no rush.Always an enjoyable treat........K&M4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI've dined here several timesI've dined here several times and have always liked or loved my food, however this time I found a slimy looking, very fishy tasting piece of anchovy in my salad and it was gross. Also, I asked for my chicken without sauce over it so the skin would be crispy, so it came with no sauce but the skin was just soft and wet anyway and the chicken was way too salty. My partner loved his lamb shank and they have the best apple crisp ever!! I'll definitely go back, but I won't get the chicken. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was nice as always. BelieveIt was nice as always. Believe we have been there at least 100 times. A local hangout.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Paradiso! It's oneWe love Paradiso! It's one of our favorite spots for a special dinner. The food is always perfectly prepared and the staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAn old favorite of ours...We like to try something new each time we come, but just to be sure, I tried what my son had before - the rack of lamb, and my husband tried the shrimp pasta. The lamb flavor was very good and not gamey at all, and this is only one of 3 places where I like lamb in California. The texture was a bit chewy though, so I thought that could have been better. Nevertheless, I ate the whole meal.
My husband is a huge pasta fan, and though the flavor was very good, the sauce was a bit much on the pasta portion. He would go for his tried and true clam and linguini next time.
As usual, the drinks were tasty and spot on!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good! Waiters FranciscoAlways good! Waiters Francisco and Nasser are both spectacular. They couldn't be nicer and always do a great job!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMUST-TRY NEIGHBORHOOD GEMWe love this restaurant and dine here as frequently as our schedules allow. We have family brunches for special occasions here as well as stopping by for a great lunch. The cuisine is consistently excellent and we like the location. I'd recommend Paradiso for any occasion - dates, family get-togethers, quick lunches. And they accommodate our elder guests with walkers so well.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner before Warriors/A'sParadiso is a great restaurant for dinner before a Warriors or A's dinner.

Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and very professional. The wine was delicious and the food was over the top amazing!! We had the seared salmon on a bed of new potatoes and seafood raviolis...each bite was just an explosion of flavor. Everything was done to perfection.
