    The food is always great! This is a San Leandro Gem, and a must do for date nights! From the Lamb and steak to the pasta and seafood, Paradiso hits all the marks spot on! I can not say I’ve had a bad service experience either, all the staff are knowledgeable about the menus offer great recommendations and made sure I enjoyed every dining experience!

    Paradiso never disappoints us!! I had Seafood linguini & my date had Chicken Paradiso. So good. The quality & quantity was perfect as well as the noise level. Key is “Go Early”! Service was satisfactory. The server noted that it was someone’s birthday but never wished them a happy birthday??? She sent our appetizer with our entree. She apologized and said tiramisu was on her for the mistake. We did not receive the tiramisu or dessert of any kind. I would always recommend this restaurant.

    Food was excellent but this time the linguini with clams had more lemon than usual so it was a bit sour. The description in the salad didn’t say it came with onions and when we got the salad, it had tons of onions. Waiter was kind enough to replace it. When we were ready to order, the waiter couldn’t be found so we ordered from the guy who puts water on the table and he was great with amazing memory. Didn’t need to write down our order and he had it memorized. It took so long to get our entree and when we asked our waiter, he said he was waiting for us to be done with appetizers. We then asked him to bring our food and he boxed up our appetizers. I mean we still want to eat some of the appetizers with our entree. It was just odd that food is being boxed up when we still have our entree and we might want to get desserts too. When we finally finished with our meal and ready to go. Our waiter put my leftover linguine with clams in a to go container. When I got home, everything spills in my car. The cover of the to go box was not latched properly and all the sauce spilled all over my car and in my clothes. What a mess!!!!

    I was disappointed I came from Livermore to find out they only offer there burgers Monday-Thursday for lunch. Then I had order iced tea to pay over $6 to have ask for a refill and them to say they were all out. For this I was a little disappointed.
    Paradiso - San LeandroResponded on April 24, 2024
    We appreciate your visit and we regret that you were disappointed, Kindly note that our ice tea is made fresh so we do not run out, but it may take a little time to brew a fresh batch. We also post all of our menus on our website. We offer the Paradiso burger on our brunch and lunch menus, and the option of our short rib, filet, and ribeye for dinner (plus prime rib on Saturday and Sunday nights).

    They were quite busy so it took a while for them to come to our table. Once they did, they apologized for the wait and everything after was good. The food was very tasty, just a bit pricey but overall it was very good. I guess we were expecting it to be a bit lower but all in all it was probably just our expectations that were off.

    Food and service was exceptional. Tables too cozy for my liking. Might as well be communal seating for how close the tables were. Makes for too much noise and impossible to have a conversation with my husband.

    Overall the service was good. Food was excellent. Upon entering host (older gentelman) did not greet us or say anything, he just stood there looking at us. I said "we have a reservation". He said "name?". I told him my last name, he repeated my first name and signaled another staff member to seat us.
