The food sounded good, and looked fine but the flavors were off. This was the second time I went, last time was disappointing too. It isn't worth going back as there are many better places to eat and better places to have a nice dinner with friends and family.

I have a milk allergy and informed the server of this during my order. I specifically said no cheese due to a milk allergy. When my order arrived I took a few bites and realized the sauce had Parmesan cheese in it. Milk products make me sick for three days. I explained this to the server. He redid my order without milk and removed the cost of it from the bill...a $25 value. I don’t like being poisoned, chefs need to pay more attention to the server notes. I have eaten the same meal at this restaurant many times before without issues. This server was new to me.

My adult son and I had a nice window table in a corner for quiet conversation.
I chose the camilliere for my main though it is listed as an appetizer. Excellent grilled with aioli on the side and a wee salad.....perfect !
The green salad was not as creative as the last time I was there but was fresh .
My son enjoyed the blackened trout served over luscious rice and spinach.
Foregoing wine, our water glasses were kept filled.
The unique house bread accompanied by olive oil and balsamic was as tasty and welcome upon arriving, as usual.

Maybe the 10th time I've dined at Paradiso over ten years. Always great food and service. Took my 94 year old mother for her birthday after she chose the venue. She was delighted, as she was every other time. Highlight was the complimentary tiramasu with single candle. She hopes to return for #95.

Had a lovely dinner at a table in the back. We took advamtage of the Restaurant Week menu, and all courses were delicious. The veal scallopini was especially tender and the mushroom sauce very flavorful.

Everything was great. We went for Seattle Restaurant Week and were not disappointed. Our server Ryan was wonderful. Food came out with no delay, yet we also didn't feel like we were being rushed. Loved the attention to detail in each dish.

Our dinners were delicious. We ordered traditional Italian food, & we were not disappointed. We had an outstanding wine from a winery that doesn't often show up on a restaurant wine list. A treat! Our server was very helpful and attentive. We will definitely go there again.

Dylan was wonderful along with all the staff. The food and ambiance for the Seattle Restaurant Week was generous, tasty, well presented, great choices.
We always enjoy the affordable 1/2 carafe of great house wine. Thank you!

The restaurant temperature was quite warm, and though the manager turned up the AC, it was briefly a little cooler, but the AC could use an upgrade.

The waiter notified us after about 30 mins of waiting for our main meal, that the kitchen was running behind. It took almost an hour to get our main meals. They were all served hot, but most of us were just ready to be done and leave, eating dinner well past 8:30pm. Though the staff confirmed via phone that it was a birthday dinner, no one acknowledged the event once there. Very disappointing.

Late lunch was wonderful, as we were seated at a table in a window alcove, which was perfect for relaxation and coversation. Our meals were delicious, although I found the pasta in the pasta with prawns dish could have been a bit more al dente (my preference). But the serving was generous!

This was our first time at this restaurant - had heard good things from friends. Food was terrific - fresh, well-seasoned, nice portions. Service was rough and uneven. Hostess was unfriendly, seemed put out to even to have to deal with us. We obviously had a reservation, had to wait to be seated. We let the hostess know that one of our party was arriving late and that we would go ahead and get started without him. Waited a while before a server came by and asked, "Have you been helped?" I thought that was strange in this type of restaurant, better response in a diner. Anyway, after this, things were fine. Gina was great, responsive, helpful. Would recommend and will return. We feel that service is as important as the food in a dining experience, perhaps even more. As they say, you only have one chance to make a great first impression. You need a friendlier hostess.
