Chef Angelo Romano’s Paradiso restaurant exemplifies excellence. I initially felt a sense of hospitality on the phone when making a reservation; that hospitality was reinforced throughout the evening by the genuine warmth and confidence of the chef and staff. They are on top of their game and it shows.
The menu is a superlative exploration of the chef's Italian Riviera background. It relies heavily on locally caught seafood and light (almost simplistic) compositions that skillfully accent the flavors of the high quality ingredients…
Paradiso absolutely earned its stars. Not because of the meticulously clean and organized restaurant, nor the expert service, or even the amazing food and drink.
It is because all these aspects meshed together seamlessly, effortlessly and impeccably. Whereas some restaurants try to impress, Paradiso is simply impressive

It took 15 minutes before someone brought us a menu, another 15 minutes before they took our order and 25 minutes more before they brought out the appetizers. Of course dinner comes 5 minutes after the appetizers were place on the table. It was a Lake Worth restaurant with Boca prices. Take this off the open table list.

The meal and wine and service were very good to excellent. We wanted outdoor dining. The setting was very good, unfortunately the restaurant is located along side a major roadway and the traffic noise was loud on many occasions. We will definitely go back because the food and everything else far outweighed the traffic noise.

Impeccable food and service. Lovely, immaculate dining rooms and perfectly set tables. Pastas are to die for, but everything is so very delicious. Desserts are incredible. So good that we cancelled our reservation for the following night and brought our son. We could dine here seven nights a week.

It was a special occasion... a birthday and our first dining out experience in a year due to COVID. Four of us enjoyed deliciously prepared food and lovely ambience. Will be back soon.

Our meal has always been consistently great.
It is a pleasure to have Angelo the owner chef take such pride in his hometown dishes and bring them to the restaurant .

Our experience at Paradiso was outstanding. Not enough stars to rate it. The ambiance was great. The service was perfect and the food was absolutely amazing. It was definitely our best dining experience from our 2 weeks in Lake Worth. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Vacation dining ~ great experience in terms of food and service. Covid screening upon arrival was welcomed, but half way through dinner a group of 4 were seated directly next to us. Our chair backs were actually touching ~ very uncomfortable.

We have been there several times never had service so poor even though it was a holiday should never have been neglected like we were. Ordered wine from the wine list didn’t have.
ordered another bottle they recommended and went to order the second bottle and they didn’t have it.

This was a Birthday dinner.

The restaurant is gorgeous, our bartender was fabulous however, even though our server was delightful, it took forever to get waited on. We felt badly for her as she was really hustling around the entire dining room and with a kind manner. Management should have more servers. Otherwise a very enjoyable evening!

My husband and I had an amazing meal. We started with Zucchini Blossoms, and Mussels, I had pasta with freshly shaved white truffles. My husband had pistachio crusted Branzino. Dessert was chocolate soufflé. They recommended a fabulous bottle of wine to compliment our meal. It was perfect

Wow...the restaurant was terrific. We sat outside and the wait staff was attentive to us right away. When the waiter came over, he was charming and knowledgeable about the menu and the history of the restaurant. He told us he has been working at Paradiso for over 20 years. My husband and our friend ordered the octopus as an appetizer. They were tender and mouth-watering, for their entree, the pistachio-crusted Colorado lamb chops, which were perfectly seasoned and delicious. I had the salmon with crab, it was the best tasting salmon I have ever had. Our other friend had the Dorado special. The fish was simply prepared but it had a wonderful flavor to make it worthy of a "special".
For dessert, we shared the pistachio cake with pistachio ice cream and the warm apple strudel which were both decadent and delicious! We are so happy to have found a restaurant where the food, atmosphere, and staff are all excellent!

We came from New Jersey on vacation to palm beach and picked this place to have a nice dinner for 2. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service. Everyone works together as a team and the bartender even came to our table to make specials drinks based off of what we told her we liked. Highly recommend.

Wow, every bite was delicious. We split a Cesar salad, appetizer portion of pasta, veal chop and desert. It was expensive, but for a special occasion it is worth the splurge. Service was great and ambiance was romantic. We will be back.

3rd time within the last few months we ate here. Each time was terrific. Food is done to perfection. Would have liked something other than their house vegetable as an accompaniment to the excellent Orata. Risotto? Definitely pricey but truly excellent food.
