Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in years. Especially for restaurant week, the menus was superb. Definitely a hidden gem.

Four of us enjoyed a dinner at Paradiso on April 7th, 2019. Three of us use the fixed price menu (Seattle Restaurant Week) and 1 guest had lasagna. All the main dishes (2 of the Tutto del Mare, one with tomato sauce and one with wine sauce; 1 of the Polenta with Lamb Ragu, 1 lasagna) were excellent. The salads (beet salads) were average, nothing to write home about (beets were hard, not that well presented or that tasty). Desserts were very nice, too. We all would recommend the restaurant and plan to go back!

We had dinner with friends before a concert at KPC for St Pat's Day. What a lovely dinner we all had. Halibut, swordfish, cannanoli and chicken saltimbocca. All of it was great. Place was very busy and it seemed the staff was a bit surprised by that but they came through. All in all a loverly evening.

Very nice local (Kirkland) Italian restaurant. This is not a cafe. Its a moderately upscale ambiance with white linen table cloths. Its small and gets very noisy when full. And it was jam packed. The food is absolutely outstanding! I had the lamb shank special and it was a 10!

I thought the pasta could be a small add to the entree rather than a sub. The waitress did not give us the specials. My husband orders the veal scallopini and sub veg&potatoes for pasta with red sauce....the put the veal over the pasta.. that does not go well mixed. The pasta should have been put on the side since it’s different sauces. I expected more, and better flavors. The sauces were not tasty they were average.

we went for Valentines day. We had a reservation but still had to wait 1/2 for a table so they probably could have done better on the reservation times but it was Vday so I guess it is fair to expect to wait. Food was as Italian should be, simple high quality ingredients that highlight the food rather than covering it in spices or sauces.

Disappointing Valentine's dinner. They either over reserved or there was something going on with the kitchen. When I make a reservation I expect my table will be ready then or maybe wait 5 minutes. We waited 30 minutes and they almost se as tes someone with a reservation after us. The whole experience felt rushed and not at all romantic. No good cream sauces on the menu. Hoping this is just a blip..I usually love this place.

We were seated promptly and received good service throughout our meal. The restaurant is fairly small with lots of tables fit into a tight space. Add to that a holiday and people waiting for tables. It was crowded and somewhat noisy. However, the food was excellent and we were happy with our meals.

Shared a nice tiramisu dessert with candle for her birthday. House wines were delicious.
I hope to return-soon.
