My wife and I visit Philly several times a year for a weekend getaway. Great food scene. We discovered Paradiso when walking in the East Passyunk Ave area. The menu looked interesting so we thought we would return for dinner. Turned out to be a great choice. The food was very well prepared and delicious. The service was very great. Plan to go back on our next trip.

Really nice surprise! We had to scramble last-minute to find a restaurant that could seat 8 people quickly, and I couldn’t be happier that we found Paradiso. Food was delicious and varied for a shorter menu. Service was just a bit spotty in places - we had multiple servers come up to ask about water right when we sat down, then had trouble getting a server’s attention later in the evening. Other than that, fabulous meal and experience!

The service was all that was good. The seating was way too tight, uncomfortable tight. The food was bland w no flavor and scallop special was gritty.

Seven Fishes fixe prix dinner was fun for us- authentic and a little frenetic- we were rightby the kitchen which was fun to watch. A festive evening !!!

We've enjoyed several meals at the sister restaurant- Izumi, that's what led us to trying Paradisio. We typically dine out for Christmas Eve and the 7 Fishes feast. We usually go to a different restaurant, this year we opted for a change. First impression- the room was VERY crampped. We ordered drinks. I ordered a gin martini with olives - the drink arrived without olives. I had to ask the waiter 3x for the olives ($12.00 martini). We also ordered a bottle of wine that was served & kept in a standing ice bucket. Everytime the hostess went to seat a table, she would relocate the ice bucket completely out of reach of the table. At one point it was 2 tables away, and in the corner. We paid $50.00 for the bottle. Service at this place was pretty bad to say the least. The food was "OK" but nothing to go crazy over. The 7 Fish menu seemed to be decent, but delivery of each item provided luke warm plates of room temperature food. In cases where the serving was delivered "Family Style" we were given a portion that could barely accommodate 2 people. Our bill came to $452.00 for 4 (1 bottle wine, 1 martini, 2 beers + the 7 Fish Feast). Never again. We'll go back to the other place instead.

The food was delicious, the restaurant is beautiful, and wait staff very friendly! It was very noisy, especially due to the large party in the center of the room, but overall a great spot in South Philly!

The food and service are always delicious here - Lynn is a great chef.
We were five (including a nine year old) for my B'day on a Sunday night and were the last to leave. Not only was the dinner excellent (Bronzino, Duck, Gnocchi) but our server was very good and we were not rushed and encouraged to relax over our coffee and dessert (chocolate something and apple something- both excellent).

Consistently excellent for over a decade. I always look forward to a great meal at Paradiso.

The space is large and open, warm but not super cozy. We sat at the bar and thought the service was great, cocktails were fantastic, the pasta was divine, as was the kale Caesar salad. Nice restaurant and we will definitely be going back!
