Pizza was soggy, ice cream was like liquid, no pasta to go with seafood or fish, way over priced. Salad was good and bread was good...fruit was plenty.

The restaurant was a step above a hole in the wall joint, but it still felt like a family restaurant. The manicotti was delightful and my husband really liked the lasagna. We will go back.

We have been taking out-of-town guests to Sunday Brunch at Paradiso for years. It's gotten to the point where we feel guilty for indulging without guests. The selection is amazing--soups, salads, fresh seafood (including oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp, and other delicacies), carving station, made-to-order pasta station,...More

Paradiso food is okay. Not enough flavor for my taste but good enough. Good enough becomes a Very Good when you consider the kid's room. The Kid's Room is brilliant - a special room with a big glass wall. Parents sit outside, kids sit inside....More

Description
Paradiso Ristorante has been part of Alexandria's culture for over 20 years. We have had the pleasure of cooking for thousands of friends and families over the years and hope to continue the tradition for a long time to come. We are a family run restaurant and enjoy cooking recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. The unique services and meals Paradiso provides are the pillars to the restaurants success. Tony and Julia Amato have been passionate about providing the community with an extraordinary Italian meal and a one of a kind dining experience. With services like their Supervised Children's Dining Area, their reputable and astounding Sunday Brunch, professional Catering services and a Lounge that features live bands with no cover charge, it's not hard to believe they have clients who have been dining with them for the 20+ years they've been open. From the staff to the exceptional decor, Paradiso is a restaurant for everyone. Ourdining room setting always feels serene no matter how crowded it gets. The design is eclectic and comfortable, with an air of elegance. Partitioned into a few small rooms, the place provides a homey atmosphere no matter where you sit. Paradiso's interior - natural barn wood, stain glass windows, portraits, topical paintings and posters, elegant mirrors and soft lighting - is an appropriate one for an Italian restaurant whose food is extraordinarily delicious. If you've dined with us recently, we hope to see you again soon! If you've never dined with us before, come give us a try! We guarantee you leave with a satisfied belly and a smile on your face...It's the only way to leave an Italian kitchen. From our family to yours...Buon Appetito!
