    I would recommend eating at Paradiso. The service, the food and ambiance is always great. I’ve never had any issues in regards of the quality of my meals and the service of the staff.

    We arrived 30 minutes early to an empty restaurant and hostess would not seat us. Therefore, we were at the bar for an uncomfortable 30 minutes and then seated us at a window table a half hour later. What changed in that half hour? All the place settings and tables were ready when we arrived. Did they need to bless the table, wave some ashes and bless it with holy water? Why the production. Then in ordering the pasta (fettuccini, marinara sauce and chicken), the server mixed up the orders and for mine they forgot the chicken. Just overall rather sloppy service and not well thought through or presented. Food was not outstanding at best. Feels like the restaurant has gone downhill or stayed the same for the last few decades.

    Went for my wife’s birthday and had a very nice time. But… The hostess knew it was her birthday so had selected a corner table by the window for us. The hostess said the people at that table had finished eating some time ago so said we should wait. After waiting 15 minutes or so, we opted to take another table. Meanwhile , the people sitting at that other table, who were finished eating when we came in, were still not leaving. They stayed another 80+ minutes after that. We finished eating about the time they finally left. Restaurants really need to be more proactive in asking “table hogs” to move along. Seriously, almost an hour and a half after finishing? Lucky for us another table was available. But it was a disappointment. And while we waited, we saw another table near us where it was the woman’s birthday. They brought her a dessert with a candle in it. Nice touch. But when we were done eating, they did no such thing. And they knew it was my wife’s birthday. Also disappointing. Lastly, my wife has food restrictions which limits her menu choices. The restaurant managed to make her grilled fish with fresh vegetables. But alas, it was rather plain and boring. This is not the first restaurant we have been to that can’t figure out how to make something tasty without onions or garlic. I can’t imagine they don’t have spices other than salt and pepper in the kitchen. A little curry powder on the fish maybe? A restaurant of this caliber should be able to make something taste good without garlic or onions. Obviously they can’t. So I would recommend Paradiso if you can eat what’s on the menu, their food that way is quite good. But with restrictions or food allergies, not so much. It might be a pass for us in the future.

    Food was and always is outstanding. Went most recently for father's day brunch. our server was very warm, however, the general setting of the restaurant was way too crowded. i feel that the restaurant fills way too many tables than can be comfortably served for a busy weekend like father's day. especially given the cramped quarters and proximity to the kitchen, there were times it felt unsafe to walk with my child to the bathroom b/c we kept getting in the way of the wait staff. as i said, the food and service was excellent, but the restaurant was overly packed. i would recommend holding less reservations on busy weekends like this one.

    Gave me a hard time for wanting to have no onions on pizza and having certain ingredients taken out on dishes overall. Service was a bit slow.
