Caffe Paradiso - Tampa
Awesome place, one of my favorites!
Paolo perfected the menu and execution decades ago and it remains that way. In other words, his passion for pleasing his guests is reflected in the restaurant’s warm welcome, outstanding food and drink, spot-on service and overall attention to detail. Now with the renovations casting a bright new look, even the traditional Italian recipes feel new. It’s a guarantee that you’ll find dishes here that will keep you coming back.
The best Italian restaurant in TAMPA
It is always a pleasure to eat at Caffe Paradiso. We had an excellent dinner with friends. Dining room was a bit noisy, hard to have a conversation.
Wonderful Italian in a family white tablecloth environment- highly recommend!
Wonderful as usual
Great restaurant, excellent food, wonderful atmosphere.
We were very disappointed in the food! We would not be returning
We love the place. Friendly and delicious
Good, consistent food with good service. Excellent specials.
Awesome service & food!
Long wait to get our first course. Then second course delivered only minutes later. Then upon trying to pay with a gift card, they refused to accept it even though I explained a gift card is the same as cash. They refused to honor the card. Owner came to my table to argue with me. We will not be going back even though I was a regular.
Great service and very good food!
Valentine’s Day ❤️ Our first time dining here. Excellent service, not rushing is at all. We see this becoming one of favorite dining locations.
Always a great meal and service and in an atmosphere where you can talk and hear each other! Perfect for a romantic dinner or family gathering
great italian food, what else do you need to know?
Very nice. I will be back.
My wife and I have been coming here once or twice a year for several years often with family.
The food has been outstanding and the service impeccable.
This time around a couple of things disturbed me which I feel I need to comment about.
It was a busy Friday night and the waiters were obviously hustling. Our waiter was as gracious and professional as ever, however towards the end of the meal I got the feeling that he was rushing us to free the table.
Also when we received the check the recommended gratuity was 20% 22% 25% not the usual 18% 20% 22%. While this kind of tip creep may be happening in high end restaurants in Manhattan this is Tampa.
We really enjoyed our first visit to Caffé Paradiso. Loved the warm welcome upon our arrival! The atmosphere was cozy and food and service top notch.
The place was not crowded. We had asked for a quiet table and ended up being seated by the entry way. We had also requested Antonio as our waiter. He was there but didn’t serve us. It seems the restaurant doesn’t read the requests we made when we booked our reservation. Food is good, but this experience will make us think twice before ever going back
Cafe Paradiso is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always good, the staff is awesome & friendly & the vibe is gr8. The new bar is fabulous!
fabulous every time----food is so fresh---wait staff is very attentive---everyone greets you upon arrival-
I just felt like if you weren’t a regular you don’t get the same service or attention. Great food, a little pricy. Probably won’t be back. Our reservation was at 730, didn’t get seated until close to 8. Took about 30 minutes for someone to come take our order. Yes they were busy, and yes I’m understanding. But when you see regulars getting their table right away and getting their food right away, I’m not understanding.
who is a wonderful experience. Hugo and Paolo are absolutely tune in to what everyone would like and accommodate everyone in every way possible
Monday night and the place was packed....did not effect the food or service. The servers and bussers were working like crazy to keep the 5 Star Italian rating up. And they did a great job!
Outstanding food, atmosphere in a cozy place. Been enjoying the Red crab sauce and tuna steak for 20 years here
Phenomenal Italian food, great staff, great atmosphere.
Awesome staff, great ambiance, and outstanding food!
This is our favorite restaurant. Food is always excellent and service is perfect. All dishes are made with fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection.
New Years Eve
Amazing as always!
Good and consistent food
Excellent food and service everytime we visit Caffe Paradiso.
Excellent food and service that you can always count on.
We enjoyed it well enough to return on February 1 with out of town guests. It was once again lovely but we didn’t receive open table credit.
