First time visitors and we will absolutely be back! Casear salads to start, followed by the dishes that our server recommended. (one was a chef special veal milanese and the other was a basic crab/pasta/olive oil/garlic dish that is their most popular) - great night! Have lived in south tampa for 12 years - why haven't i gone sooner?

Nice ambience, bar, great servers, especially Antonio. Food quality is excellent. You must try the ossobuco or the specials. A far cry from the local chain restaurants that pretend to serve authentic Italian dishes. Paolo Tini, the owner does it right.

Great evening, as usual!! Food was amazing. Started with mozzarella and tomato appetizer and a Caesar salad. I had the seafood ravioli with a pink sauce for my main course. Wonderful! Nice Chianti. Doesn't get much better than that.

Their classic Italian dishes are so scrumptious. The Caesar salad and veal dishes were very yummy. Their wine list and prices are great

My wife and I visited Cafe Paradiso for the first time for dinner and we were impressed by the service as well as value for our meal. There was a fairly large crowd, indicating how popular the place was. Service was prompt and very professional. We will definitely come back.

Caffe Paradiso is the best Italian Restaurant in Tampa. My favorite is the veal piccata and I get it every time I go there. Others that gone with me have tried almost everything on the menu and all have been fantastic! If you have not tried this Tampa gem you are missing out on one of the great dining experiences

EXCELLENT FOOD! LIVED IT!! Server was ok- older gentleman- we got all our apps and wine and food very timely—he just didn’t come to the table to check if we needed anything once we were served. Had to haul down others for a fork, another bottle of wine and then the check.

Really enjoyed taking our party of 6 at late notice. Food and service were outstanding even if tables were a bit snug. Thinking to have my Dad’s 80th party here next summer. Food is very good at a reasonable price.

Cannot wait to return. The staff was so accommodating in making a few dishes less spicy. I had the cuttlefish with squid ink pasta which I was able to switch the sauce on. We had meatballs appetizer, fried risotto balls with tangy dipping sauce and BRACIOLUNI. The bread comes out of the oven nice and hot so be careful! Yummy. Save room for dessert, the tiramisu is worth the calories.
