Very good food, and the wine was molto bene. We have eaten there a few times before, and it is consistently good. All in all, a keeper!

My experience here was amazing! Large/good size portions that are excellently prepared! Feels very authentic and offers many seafood inclusive pasta dishes (which I love). Our waiter was extremely kind and attentive to our table. The inside is slightly small but it super cute and cozy! Highly recommend for a date night or birthday. I recommend trying the Capellini with Shrimp.

My husband and I have been visiting Ristorante Paradiso for many years. It's hard to find a great authentic Italian restaurant and this is it. The restaurant itself is so adorable and cozy. The front window seats are the best and offer lots of people watching opportunities. The food is fabulous every single time we go. There has never been a time when anything was "off". The house made bread is a great draw on its own. It's even fun to hear the Italian chef talking in the kitchen. Overall a great experience and destination. Love!

We love this restaurant, but this evening, it was not quite up to par, mostly due to our waiter. He was a bit unkept looking, compared to the rest of the staff, tried to hardsell us to order additional items, stacked all the dirty dishes right in front of me to the point I backed up my chair for fear it would topple into my lap. Disappointing, but we'll be back because we know this is not the norm here. Service is typically very professional.

My pasta entree was very good, but the appetizer and salad we had werent anything spectacular. The drinks were very disappointing, with only a couple of house wines by the glass and no cocktails. The service overall was just okay also. It seems like this might be a good option for a family dinner, but for a date, I didn’t care too much for it.

Restaurant: Too noisy. But otherwise very nice.
Open table: Ridiculous that you require 50 characters in your review.

A wonderful restaurant with excellent food and service. The veal saltinbocca alla romana and veal scaloppine al funghi were outstanding with generous servings of vegetables. The calamari were fresh and simple. Our server David was attentive and helpful and surprised our birthday guests with tiramisu for dessert! We have been coming here for over 20 years and the dining experience has always been excellent! Thank you to Fabrizio and his staff for another beautiful evening.

Dined here last night to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. Diana, our server, was very knowledgeable and helped me make the perfect dinner choice when I was debating between two entrees. Her customer service was outstanding.....the perfect amount of time between courses, answered our many questions as if we were family! The food was delicious. We didn’t know that it was Restaurant Week so we chose the three-course dinner. The seafood was perfectly cooked as was the pasta. We were seated in the small alcove to the right of the door and loved how private it felt. We had been here many years ago and for sure won’t wait that long to come back. Highly recommend!

We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday. Such a quaint, cozy place with a lovely Italian atmosphere. The staff was very accommodating as we changed the number in our party last-minute. The food was outstanding and our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful.

The food is always great. The service good. The only real problem with the restaurant is the noise level. It is not a big place, so tables are very close. If there is a large group nearby, good luck hearing your table.

Good spot in the neighborhood, but always noisy inside, especially during pic hours. Already very pricey :(
Always asked for a window table when called for reservation, never ever got one!

We love this restaurant but dining on Valentine’s Day wasn’t the romantic experience I was expecting. The restaurant was noisy, extra tables had been added and the main room was packed . It was almost impossible to have a conversation.
The wait staff was awesome and the food was delicious.

Had tickets for a concert at KPC about three blocks away and decided to have dinner here after way too many years of skipping it. We LOVE their sister restaurant Blu Sardinia which is across the street from our house. Paradiso does more traditional Italian food and sadly, is a MUCH better value. Dinner for two (2 cocktails, half carafe of wine, one salad, one soup, two entrées plus tip was $120 here, $160 at Blu).

We loved all the food we had (seafood risotto and lasagna were especially good) and their bread (which they give you a BUNCH of) is awesome. We will be back.

I was very disappointed with the waiting for a table. We, and our guests, arrived 10 minutes early and ended up waiting over 45 minutes (beyond our reservation time) for a table...when we arrived, there were 3 sets of "4 person Walk Ins" that had been there approximately 30 minutes prior to our reservation time.....ALL 3 sets were given a table before us....thought Open Table was to avoid this? Additionally, during our wait, we were asked if we would like a drink for our "delay".....after our meal (good food) and looking at the bill, we were charged for that round of drinks (glass of wine, glass of water, single scotch and single gin)...they had given us the impression that the drinks were gratis "for the wait"...will NOT use Open Table for Restorante Paradiso again since they, obviously, do NOT HONOR your reservation times versus Walk In's.
