We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated immediately in the quiet dining room, per request. Our server came by to introduce himself and take our drink order. We told him that we needed to catch a train in 1.25 hours (train station is across the street). Our salads came out right away, followed by our meals shortly after. Everything was hot and delicious. The eggplant parmigiana passed the strictest of tests (my Italian boyfriend), and the kitchen made my veal Romano completely gluten free. My daughter’s baked haddock was fresh and flaky, and her side of gnocchi marinara melted in her mouth. Finally, we had profiteroles for dessert. Fresh cream filling in flaky pastry, smothered in chocolate and topped with fresh whipped cream. I could have used less chocolate, but the bite I had was delicious.
Great food, great service. Really enjoyed our server, Michael.
I wish management would fix the cappuccino machine as it's been out of service for quite some time. Come on, if you are serving Vitello Ossobuco (very good), you are an Italian restaurant, you gotta have an espresso machine.
Always great service. Excellent specials (especially the seafood selections). Really nice outdoor dining setup for the fall weather.
Great food. The services was fabulous. Great attitudes and very accommodating.
Excellent place we found for great Italian fare!!!
Paradiso is a great local neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was very good, nothing fancy. Good value for what you get and the service was really nice and friendly.
They offer outdoor seating in a heated tent which is definitely a plus in times of Covid.
Hope to be back soon.
Wonderful food, prepared from off the menu. Great that they would do that for us.
The ambiance is cozy and very welcoming. The food is very delicious and they serve large portions. Try the eggplant in pesto sauce (appetizer)...extremely delicious. Very decent wine list, and the wait staff are very friendly and accommodating. This is now my third time back and plan to frequent when I can.
Lots of outdoor space. Excellent wine. A classic red sauce night out!
This is a tough time for restaurants: staffing shortages, supply delays, morale. Nonetheless, Paradiso staff continue to offer good service & tasty food, in a lively neighborhood "go to." Michael, at the check-in desk, did his best to accommodate walk-in diners (we had a reservation, which I recommend.) It was nice to see that he was empowered to make decisions. Stephen, our server, moved lightning quick through the restaurant and was very attentive to his guests. As for the food, my husband had a salmon special that he scarfed down before stealing two pieces of my parma cotta pizzette. The pizza was one of the best dishes I've eaten there, and it's on the regular menu.
Everything was great and we'd come back again soon
Totally enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning soon.
The food was fabulous and Franca was
Attentive to every detail
Fine. Table, service, food were all fine
This was my first visit to Paradiso and it exceeded my expectations.
we chose to eat outside in a huge cooled/heated tent. app was octupus salad served w cukes beets and fresh string beans / perfect for a summer nite. we each had the special which was sea bass grilled or livornese style w olives capers and tomatoes. nice portion w perfect flavorings. luv an ice cream and hazelnut was the choice for the night. enjoyed that as well. paradiso is definitely a north end restaurant worth going to outside the city.
Great food, awesome service, we love it here!! Never feel pressured or rushed, just a wonderful, delicious and relaxing experience!
First, the rolls were served with olive oil mixed with spices and a bit of red pepper flakes. I mentioned to my niece that I would love to have the recipe so that I could toss it with pasta for a meal of its own. Two of us got the veal piccata. The veal was tender, beautifully cooked, with a wonderful light lemon sauce with mushrooms and spinach. It did not come with pasta, but I could barely finish the meal, there was so much. There was a large wine list which the waiter seemed to know by heart. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive. It was a wonderful dining experience.
Excellent food and drinks. Outdoor seating is spacious!
Amazing! Would recommend for any occasion for a wonderful meal and fantastic service!
Nice, relaxed atmosphere, pleasant staff, great food... and family friendly! First time here, we will definitely be back!
We always have a wonderful dining experience at Paradisco. Went with friends visiting from Florida. The food and drinks were outstanding. Sat outside and everyone had a great time.
LOVE this place! The staff is SUPER friendly and the food is great! PLEASE make that lemon sorbet served in a lemon special an every day menu item!!
Fantastic food, but we really have to comment on the outstanding service! From the host at the door, to the staff and servers on the floor, all were friendly, and very focused on the customers. We had a wonderful evening and will be back soon!!
The food was good and the service was excellent. I will go back.
We love Paradiso! North End or Arthur Ave level food close to home!
We ate on the patio, which is protected in foul weather, and kept comfortable with fans or heaters, whichever is needed. My husband and I ordered one of the specials, the spezzatino, a dish of veal, eggplant, tortellini, and tomatoes. Always delicious. Our server, Michael, was efficient and friendly. We each had a different specialty cocktail, mixed by one of Paradiso's experienced bartenders, Kim. Also delicious.
Always good here and reliable. nice atmosphere. glad they are back with indoor seating
The number of tables that had no one seated was surprising considering only a tall table was available when I made a reservation. However the service and food was very good.
Enjoyed the tent setting very much
Dinner was excellent!
Paradiso is our favorite local haunt, on the regular dinner out rotation. Service is spot on, and the bartenders know how to mix perfect cocktails. Food always reliable, a good value. The owners have been diligent in adhering to Covid-19 guidelines. I hope the large covered patio is a permanent fixture, they've made it an attractive space.
A traditional Italian menu with a few specials, and very well prepared. I had halibut puttanesca and my husband had veal piccata - both delicious. We sat outside in a tent. Only negative was that the food came too fast - we hadn’t finished the first course before the second came. Perhaps with Covid precautions they are limiting time, but still this felt rushed.
It was my first time at Paradiso. My friends have been their several times. It was excellent from start to finish. Our waitress Ashley was wonderful. We'll definitely be back again.
I had the Veal Piccata with homemade fusilli. It was delicious.
Service and food were amazing. Our waitress Kim was absolutely amazing.
Paradiso Ristorante is ALWAYS a fantastic choice for making dinner out fantastic! The food is always the best! The service is beyond beyond! Everything is always fulfilling! Don't miss out on the Steak Pizzaiola or Sea Bass specials!!!!!
Delicious food. Great service! Will go again soon!
Always a phenomenal meal with great prices and perfect portions. Still the best Italian restaurant north of Boston.
Always the best at Paradiso!!!
