My Fiancé and I had a lovely date night here! Very good wine selection and delicious pasta, reminds me of the time Tom Cruise and I had dinner at a trattoria on the isle of Capri just before touring the ruins of Pompeii but then the volcano exploded again and ruined the whole trip. No wait that was a weird dream I had.
But seriously the food was amazing… highly recommend!

Paradiso is our "go to" place on Kirkland's Park Lane because the food is simply delicious.
Fish and meats are cut into filets in house and the ravioli are beautifully house made. Everything is authentic Italian in taste, freshness and presentation. Outside dining is delightful under red umbrellas. Service is professional and reservations are taken on Open Table. Buon appetito!

Fantastic food and service. Not sure why you can't reserve the outdoor tables, other restaurants have it figured out.

Very good as usual. I've been eating here since 2010. Nice selection of wines by the glass (look inside the binder with the bottle list for full page offerings (one per wine) with good prices. They specialize in Sardinian wines (e.g., Cannonau). Service is friendly and accommodating.

We had dinner at Ristorante Paradiso last night. I ordered the Pork Chop and it was without a doubt the best I have ever had. Top-quality and cooked perfectly, exactly as ordered. The service was very good especially considering the restaurant was very busy. Good selection of wines. Highly recommend. Reservations are a must.

A Kirkland neighborhood gem and the best lasagna on the eastside in my opinion. Our server Carmanita was awesome and very attentive to our dinning experience at Paradiso. It's great having a little bit of Italy in your backyard. They have been serving the Kirkland area for decades and are passionate about their customers and the amazing food they serve. Thank you Paradiso! See you soon ~Kelly~

A favorite Kirkland restaurant. Despite having almost 2 restaurants with their expanded outdoor seating, service was very good- and this place was hopping. They also are continuing to do a robust takeout business. There were lots of servers, all professional & welcoming. Our dinners were excellent-can't wait to dig into our leftovers!

Before the pandemic after dining there a few times and we found everything was just excellent!
Tonight, not so much. We waited 10-15 mins after being seated before asking the water girl where our waiter/waitress was. Then after ordering some wine and appetizers, the waitress still was not very attentive. We were asking about their salmon, if it is wild caught or not (which by the way is not wild, but farmed!) the waitress said oh by the way we have a special on halibut tonight, so she had not even bothered to tell us about that earlier. The people sitting across from us had the same experience of waiting and waiting to be served, we told them it was best to track down someone to find their server.
After our food came, my husbands order was wrong, so he had to wait an additional 15 mins for his food. No apology was forthcoming from the waitress. No offers of fresh black pepper over the Caesar salad, it was just all so disappointing. Their service has gone down hill and their customer service from management is no better.
Sad to say, but we will not be back.

Paradiso is our go-to for special occasions and when we don't feel like cooking. The service is great and the food is reliably good. Price-wise, reasonable and we always see this as a great value. There are more expensive places you can go to in Seattle and the food can be hit or miss. Service is always solid.

Paradisio is quaint Italian Jewel located in the heart of Kirkland on trendy Park Lane. The food, (wine list) service, ambience and value are "excellent"!! My wife and I been enjoying Paradisio for many years and we have never been disappointed. During the summer the outside seating has been greatly expanded. I suggest you make a reservation and arrive early.

It was a perfect evening for a perfect anniversary dinner. After so much take out, it was great to experience Paridiso again in person with crowds and energy. The staff was great ... attentive but not pushy ... never felt hurried to eat and move on. A very comfortable pace and vibe. And as always, the food was great and the pricing makes this a great value for fine dining in downtown Kirkland.

This is our go-to Kirkland restaurant and never disappoints. Service is wonderful and the food always fresh. All four of us thought we made the wisest choice. Editorial license, my cream and Italian sausage pasta dish was clearly the best. Our waitress from Moldova (I wish I could remember her name - Karina?) was delightful.
