Delicious fresh food in an elegant decor. Staff was very professional. One of the nicest restaurants in the downtown San Leandro area but has a neighborhood feel. A little off the beaten track.

Seniors menu is a great value. Portions are good size and the turkey dinner with all the fixings was delicious! We also ordered a roast beef sandwich on a sourdough roll.

We go here for special occasions, both for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently wonderful, and you feel as if you're sitting down to eat in a dear Italian aunt's home. I can't recommend Paradiso highly enough.
