Caffe Paradiso - Tampa
They are redecorating so the ambiance will improve greatly when they finish. Great place....
Delicious food and very friendly and prompt service.
The food is always fantastic and the service is beyond amazing.
The food was excellent, however they are doing some renovations so it is a bit congested. Still will pay them another visit to try something else.
We enjoyed a leisurely dining experience. The service was attentive but not rushed. Each course come in a well paced, timely fashion. Our meals were delicious, especially the veal special and the beet and burrata salad. The wine selection is good and fairly priced. Our waiter was fantastic. F o Naples, Italy, he made it a real Italian evening.
Loved it! Food was authentic - homemade noodles ~ delicious!
Home family feel and excited to bring my whole family here for our next special occasion!
Thank you for making us feel at home and taking care of like we were family!
Food was great, service was great, and it was a very good value. Especially love the Trefethen wine.
Always excellent personalized service and food is beyond five stars. Perfect for special occasions or any time we’re in the mood for fresh homemade authentic Italian. Makes you feel like you’ve traveled to Italy. Molto Bella
Comfortable. A welcoming feeling — owners very visible. Tasty food.
I do not understand how this restaurant subsists. My wife could not believe how her plate could get out of the kitchen. I can not believe the reviews that this restaurant has. By far the worst Italian restaurant in Tampa, period. I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant.
Great birthday dinner!! Food was amazing!!
Anniversary dinner. Great service and good food. Enjoyed our meal
We really enjoyed our meal and the servers were all so helpful!! Will be coming back. The melon proscutto appetizer was a refreshing starter for the meal to come!!!
Very good meal - authentic italian - friendly wait staff
As a resident of Tampa I consider it to be the best Italian restaurant in the city. The menu is superlative, the service impeccable, and the pricing surprisingly reasonable.
Fantastic evening great food, wine, service
Great food, great atmosphere and a totally awesome experience- as always!
Great food , service, very attentive to customer. full Bar and wine selection
We had a fabulous another dinner last night. Great food and service!!
We love to go to Cafe Paradiso. It is actually one of our favorite Italian restaurant.
Neighborhood restaurant with good food, friendly service and we can hear each other!
We love this place. We always feel like we have been treated like royalty. They will prepare anything that you want to eat. The service is impeccable and fast. They now have a full bar so you can have cocktails before dinner.We will continue to return time and time again.
It’s an all around excellent Italian dinner experience. Many thanks to our wonderful waiter, Anthony.
It was a shame - first time here and the food was great. But service was atrocious. Waited for over 45 minutes and still did not have any bread on table. Had to get host to intervene 2x.
Service was horrible - ignored all evening by the waiter though our water girl was very attentive. Also they charged us more for the wine we chose than what was advertised on the menu and didn’t make good on it 100%. The food was great but the rest negatively overshadowed the evening
Paradiso never disappoints. Even when they had already run out of the special I had ordered, Paulo fixed it. Love this place.
Consistent food and service
Excellent, quaint, great service and food. Always consistent with quality and taste, family friendly, fun dining
Food and service were excellent, a little pricey even though it was Valentine's day. But been going there to celebrate the day for years....
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Usually go to Caffe Paradiso for big event. You can go off menu and create.
Lively dining experience with friendly staff. Attentive to special order details. Service was slow but that is what true Italian dining is all about so plan for a relaxed, enjoyable experience. We split an appetizer and it was served on two plates, pre-split, without asking. Very thoughtful. Plentiful portions for first course pasta dishes. Food was delicious.
Great food, service, value and atmosphere. I would recommend it to everyone.
Food took over an hour to get.
Waiter was great but kitchen was slow.
The food is good, the service very poor. We waited 2 hours for our food. We were a party of 4 and ordered pasta! Nothing difficult! They offered us dessert and brought two pieces of cake - for 4 people! I asked if I could have cheesecake, and they charged us! We would have given it a second try, but not now. No apology, just brought us 2 desserts without even asking what we'd like. Poor way to treat customers.
We brought our daughter's God Mother during her visit. She enjoys Italian cuisine. It is truly our favorite Italian place.
Excellent South Tampa restaurant. Wide choices and superb presentation
Very good authentic italian food. Staff was also very nice and attentive. Great place for a casual dinner any day! Will definetly go back often!
We had heard many outstanding reviews about this place and were anxious to check it out. It's a bit small and a bit crowded. The parking is very limited. The staff and drinks were fine but our biggest disappointment was the taste of our main courses. Everybody had raved about how delicious the food was but my husband and I both felt the food was good but not exceptional. Average at best. And, things weren't cheap either. Maybe it was bad luck: we'll probably give it another try in the future.
consistently good food. we had fried calamari which was excellent. I highly recommend their tortellini.
Authentic Italian food, with a very private but casual dining experience. They are very accomodating with making anything you want.
