    Paradiso is quickly turning into one of my favorite restaurants. I go at least once a month and it’s just as lovely everytime. It does take a long wait to get your food but always worth it. They cook everything to order so it is understandable. Favorite Italian spot around!

    Lovely Valentine’s dinner. Only reason for a four star under service was the fact that there were several items sold out prior to our reservation time and meals came out with a 20 minute difference between two of the four people at our table. They didn’t want to eat and be rude while the rest waited and it created some awkwardness. Normally this is not the case at Paradiso and is likely due to the volume of customers on a Holiday. Go on a non-Holiday and your meal and service will be perfect as is their norm.

    Valentine’s Day here was phenomenal. Our waitress was amazing and very attentive. We had the joy of sitting on the upper level, which had an amazing view and felt more private and secluded. As soon as we sat down we had waters and bread was soon to follow. The bread tasted great and I had a salad that came with my meal. For an appetizer we ordered the fried mozzarella, which is our go to appetizer. This is my favorite and is always on point. Next, I made my own pasta, which is an amazing experience like always. My boyfriend got his own pizza, which looked absolutely delicious. Both of our meals were phenomenal and definitely photo worthy. Even though I was stuffed, I ordered the Zeppolis. These are deep fried and coated in cinnamon sugar, I chose raspberry sauce to dip and it was a perfect end to a wonderful meal. I even ate some the next day for a part of my lunch. Overall, what a wonderful restaurant and an even better experience.

    We were there on Valentine’s Day and sat upstairs, where there was one waitress only. The menu was so confusing even she didn’t understand it. I wish they had regular menus to choose from too since their menu was very limited. The waitress wasn’t the cheeriest but she wasn’t rude. The music was awful considering it was very quiet upstairs so you could hear the music very clearly. Christmas music and otherwise unpleasant music. We will gladly return on a regular night and sit downstairs.

    A wonderful dining experience! We went all out: Drinks (wine) Appetizer, salad, main entree, desert. Over the top on all accounts. Excellent server (Thank you Tyler F.); who recommended my entire meal. We are fans, and happy to know that Paradiso is open year round. We will be back, next time by boat! Tip: Don't eat it all; Bring home 1/2 your entree for tomorrow; save room for desert, the Zeppoli’s dipped in melted chocolate are amazing !!!

    Locally-sourced seasonal menu. Pasta is made in-house as is, I think, everything. Creative drinks and seasonal specials, and the regular section of the menu is good, too. This is what Italian food is really like, not like the standard North American version of Italian.

    Somewhat dissatisfied m. Mixed drink was very watered down and waited 50 minutes for their burger entree. It was over cooked too. Pizza’s are always a go to so recommend sticking with that. Staff is always excellent.

    This was my first time at Paradiso. We had a reservation and arrived a little early but they sat us right away. The waitress explained the menu to us and multiple other staff members checked on us throughout the night. We ordered fried ravioli, salad, pasta, and pizza and everything was delicious. As part of their Valentine’s partnership with the sweet easy, I was able to add chocolate covered strawberries and wine to our reservation which really made the date feel special. We’re already planning our next visit.

    We’ve been to Paradisos many times, and never a disappointment! Skillet lasagna was cooked perfect, as was the chicken Alfredo! Nothing more romantic then eating good food, while watching the river views. Establishment can get loud, especially when there’s a full house. But for us it isn’t a big deal. Staff is always so friendly. Best Italian in our area!
