Second time and the food is delicious but the service is impeccable. Enjoyed a bottle of my favorite wine. Pumpkin ravioli awesome! Can't say enough good things but all good!

I have been to Cucina Paradiso a few times and the food has been fantastic every time. The bacon wrapped dates are incredible. I love the atmosphere. Definitely my favorite Italian restaurant.

I love the ambience of this restaurant, perfect for a date night. Their pizza’s are delicious, especially the pear pizza. The pizzas are large enough to share with another person, just add a salad for a complete meal. Their pizzas are different than your normal cheese and sausage or pepperoni. If your kids expect the Chuckie cheese or Domino’s type... More

I had the pear pizza, it was excellent, it has a balsamic reduction instead of sauce. It was good, but I only ate a quarter of it. I would recommend sharing or taking home the leftovers. My husband had a special, it was filet mignon with mashed potatoes. Can't go wrong with that. Would highly recommend.

The mussels with the garlic cream sauce were out of this world...like nothing I've ever had. And the sweet potato pizza was delish.

Cucina is one of our local Oak Park favorites and tonight showed why. It's nice to go back to a place that feels like home. We can order some of our favorite wines because they have a nice reliable cellar. Great basic dishes with some fine specials abound. And their apps are the best! Their salads have a flair of...
