First time my veal saltimbocca was not excellent....the vegetables were odd tasting via oil and/or seasoning....had them replaced with pasta. The gnocchi did not have sufficient Italian sausage to balznce the dish.
Ceasar and beef carpaccio were excellent

Paradiso is one of our favorite restaurants. We have been going there for many years now. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The prices are also very reasonable and the wine list constantly improves. I would recommend trying it if you've never gone.

This restaurant is one of our favorite places in Kirkland and the service is alway excellent, but this evening we had a waitress by the name of Corina and she was absolutely the best waitress we’ve ever had anywhere. Thank you for always going above and beyond.

Have been to Ristorante Paradiso several times with family and for business dinners. Consistently great food, service and ambiance. I am always struck by the consistency of the place and how it reflects great management and passion for food.

Always excellent food. The staff members at the front door seemed a little dumbfounded when we came in. We had a reservation for 3, and the hostess mumbled something we couldn't understand about not having a table for 3. She drifted away and after about 2-3 minutes she returned with menus while still talking to another employee. She then seated us. Bottom line - she was not very courteous or welcoming to customers.

The wait staff was excellent.

First time eating here, food was very very good, portions more than plentiful. Each of us was very pleased with what we ordered. The rolls were literally hot out of the oven, yum! One of the best Caesar salads around. Complimentary dessert to celebrate a special occasion was a nice touch.

My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner here. My big surprise was veal scampi... butterflied prawns wrapped in a thin pocket of veal with an amazing sauce. Service was also very good. Highly recommend.

I really like the restaurant and have dined here many times. The food is mostly very good. I tried their Ceased salad, and it was delicious. My all time favorite is the Minestrone soup, but the flavor is inconsistent — on this particular day it was served almost cold and so was the bread.

Lovely place, good food, very good service. But the restaurant needs a ventilation system. The air was slightly blue with kitchen smoke the entire time we were there, and everything I wore that evening still reeks of garlic.

Great food, good wine selection, very crowded, service a little slow; looked like only 2 servers were working the whole restaurant and the restaurant was at capacity, including outside seating. Moderate noise, probably not the best place to go if you want an intimate, quiet dinner. But then again, it's summer. Might be quieter in the winter. Would not deter me from coming again as food was excellent.

Excellent restaurant! Great food / wine, the wait staff are pleasant, knowledgeable and very helpful.
The noise in the smaller alcoves can get loud but the main room is great. A perfect small venue with great food

As always we had an excellent meal. Our only negative would be the noise level which makes it very difficult to have a conversation. All of us had delicious food, generous portions and great wait staff.

This restaurant is always wonderful. Every time I take guests they are amazed that such a wonderful Italian restaurant is in downtown Kirkland. The calamari is the best I've had anywhere and the clam linguini is delicious!
