I hadn't been to Ristorante
I hadn't been to Ristorante Paradiso for many years. I found the entree and appetizer to be as good as it gets. We had Scampi covered with Veal and a special sauce that was to die for. The appetizer was smoked steelhead with a nice compliment of cheeses,veggies, and a gourmet cracker.

A Boutique Italian Bistro
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ristorante Paradiso. The food was excellent and the wine list was very good and affordable. Service was very attentive even with a new server who was still training. The restaurant is small, tightly packed and very busy so make a reservation.

A group of eight of us went
A group of eight of us went for lunch and had a very good time. We all ate from the Seattle Restaurant week menu and everybody enjoyed their meal. The service was very good for a large group. All agreed that this would be a good place to go for a group lunch in the future.

Pasquale likes Ristorante Paridisio
Very nice 3 course meal for Restaurant Week. They found a table for four of us after walking in around 6:30 pm. Nice menu for the special with excellent, pleasant service. Busy but not crowded. Food was excellent. Will definitely return.

The Caesar salad was overdressed
The Caesar salad was overdressed and there was too much oil with the pasta, otherwise the food would have gotten a better review. If this happens again, I may take the overall review down, but generally I enjoy the restaurant.

I meet a couple of friends
I meet a couple of friends for lunch at Ristorante Paradiso a couple of times a year. We come from Edmonds, North Bend and South Bellevue, so it's a natural meeting point. The intimate atmosphere, wonderful food and impeccable service make for a great venue for us to catch up and enjoy a leisurely meal. We've never been disappointed!

Great Italian Food & Service
Although we had to wait half an hour past our reservation time at 8 pm on a Saturday night to finally get a table, it was well worth the wait. The food was great; the wait service skilled, and our combination birthday and Father's Day gathering was a success, although we were there until closing time at 10:30 pm. (Note: Diners who linger long past a reasonable time for their dining experience might want to consider that that affects those waiting to be seated).

Great Birthday celebration
I enjoyed a fabulous birthday dinner. I ordered the pork medallions in marsala wine sauce and my husband had the steak with cracked pepper. Both entrées were delicious. I ordered a glass of Sangiovese, which was not sold by the glass, but the manager was willing to do so. The wine was so smooth we bought the bottle! Thanks Ristorante Paradiso for a great evening. MHH

Great Experience and Good Food
We went here for my wife's birthday (table of 4). It was very busy and a good thing we had reservations. Although the staff was extremely busy, they were still prompt and attentive. The only complaint would be that the salad we ordered for our first course didn't come out. They apologized and made up for it by comp'ing the salad and a bottle of wine. The food was fantastic. Not the best italian I've ever had, but quite good for the price. I had the Vitello Scampi. Mmmm!!! My wife had the Linguine Tutto Mare which was also very good. The Caprese salad was tastey and a good starter that I would recommend. All the dishes looked good and I look forward to going back some time to try more.

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at Ristorante Paradiso. It's one of my favorite restaurants, living here in Kirkland. The food was fabulous, we shared a very special bottle of wine, and we were treated to a complimentary tiramisu - with candles! A very special evening. Can't wait to go back.

We have been to Paradiso 4 times in the last 4 months, and the food has always been cooked to perfection and served while nice and hot. Their specials always are appealing. The menu itself has plenty of variety. While does have an Italian flair, it is not overpowering. Excellent use of sauces.

Wonderful Neighborhood Restaurant
What a wonderful place. We went as a group of 5 to celebrate my birthday and had this perfect round table. The service was great. The wait staff are very outgoing and friendly. The food is tastey and the wine list is suberb. We enjoyed ourselves immensly and know that we will return. Clearly the folks in Kirkland know what a great place this is. Make sure make reservations.

Cute little place
A small quiet place where you can take your date or friend and eat at a reasonable price and actually hear each other talking (a modern novelty).
