I have been coming to Paradiso for several years. The food and service is always very good. While the meals are never bland, they are nothing special either. The atmosphere is interesting and the menu has lots to choose from.

Horrible experience for dinner with my wife and 2 friends Monday night. The restaurant had 2 tables inside and 3 others including our table outside. We ate on the patio...The service was disgusting and there were 2 servers (waitresses) working. We asked twice for refills...More

Our department came to Paradiso after our annual corporate team building event. They served a nice variety of hot and cold appetizers including traditional antipasta, suvlaki, pizza, bruchetta, and some excellent crab balls.

Dropped by on a Wednesday evening and we opted for the pizza special and a regular pizza on the menu. Both were ok but a bit expensive. Add some wine and a decent tip and voila - a $100 evening for two.

One of oakville’s best restaurants to dine in. Cozy romantic relaxing and great fine dishes. They are creative in their menus so only go if you are looking to eat something special and different. Must end dinner with the cream brûlée.

The restaurant is clean and we'll decorated. The location is on a bustling part of Lakeshore and has a decent patio. The staff were polite. The problem was the food. It just didn't taste good. Quantity was adequate and the ingredients seemed OK, but it...More

Service is always good and outdoor patio is enjoyable. However the food is hit and miss with the same old things on the menu and could use a refresh.

We enjoyed this visit very much. The crab cakes were delicious and both our main entrees, crab ravioli and seafood stew were excellent. I love the focaccia bread they serve.Nice wine selection as well. Certainly recommended.

Located in the heart of Downtown Oakville and Historic Village Square, Paradiso offers much more than a place to have an exquisite meal. The warm, intimate atmosphere flows throughout the restaurants but the heart of Paradiso can be found in the open concept kitchen. The cuisine which draws inspiration for the European Mediterranean is prepared before your eyes and it's easy to see why "Dinner IS The Show" keeps guests coming back again and again. Paradiso offers innovative entertaining concepts for corporate team building events, winemaker's dinners, and weekly recreational hands-on cooking classes in the Cooking Studio. The interactive cooking classes at Paradiso cater to individuals and groups, and Read admits these popular classes book up very quickly. The recreational classes are inspired by culinary Mediterranean regions such as Italy, Greece, Spain and France. The Cooking Studio also offers classes for those who want to hone their skills. The most popular class is the Signature Dishes of Paradiso. The culinary team building classes promote collaboration and communication between team members. Co-workers enjoy a unique and rewarding hands-on cooking experience that nurtures teamwork and leadership.
