I visited this restaurant during Restaurant Week, where special menus are offered for a fixed price. I've found that these events can be disappointing because the limited price point compels the owner to offer lesser platters. Not so, here. The three courses actually duplicated offerings on the regular menu and were prepared in a manner consistent with what you would... More

Last week a friend and I had one of the most delicious lunches I've ever had! I ordered the steak sandwich, with melted fontina cheese and carmelized onions, while my friend ordered the chicken cutlet sandwich. The bread they use is perfect for an Italian sandwich and the sandwich was absolutely wonderful. Each came with a wonderful side of spring... More

We visited the restaurant this past Saturday as a party of seven. We had a reservation and we're seated immediately. The wine selections were great appetizers and main courses were out of sight. Good selections for the vegetarians in the group and also for those needing gluten-free choices!

Lunch with my wife. Nice menu. Hearty, thoughtful Italian. No heavy thick red sauces. Started with superb tripe with tiny carrot celery dice with light and spicey tomato sauce. Fusilli with homemade pork sausage and loose warmed Brussel sprout leaves. Excellent homemade eat goat cheese raviolis sautéed in brown butter and topped with roasted hazelnuts. There was only one server/bartender... More

We've eaten at Paradiso so many times and it never fails to deliver excellent cuisine and service. My favorite is the boar ragu, but there are so many other main courses that are excellent. The wait staff is helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We love this place!

Fancy shmancy and rightfully so. With an open kitchen and small menu, some regular items like the to die for sweetbread ravioli are all prepared in an open kitchen. My wife had some special homemade spaghetti dish that was out of this world. Seating was tight and loud on that Saturday night, but for some reason not not disruptive. We... More

Elegant, comfortable dining room. The owner/head chef was genuinely friendly. Dillon, our server, was pleasant & professional. Very nice open kitchen concept, although we preferred to be seated by the windows. (Would be a great spot during the spring/summer months when the windows are open!) The warm octopus appetizer was delicious! I was skeptical at first but was pleasantly surprised... More

My husband and I dined here last Saturday evening for my birthday. Our experience was great. We had a knowledgable server who gave us time to look over the menu and also helped us with suggestions for our entrees. We had the burrata app which was very light and fresh full of flavor. Then I had the scallops mushroom rissotto... More

This was my first time experiencing Paradiso, and it proved to be so enjoyable that I am definitely planning a return engagement. My cousins and I had not spent much time together in recent years, and this was sort of a reunion dinner for us. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. Some of the menu choices are unique... More

Except for the odd, prolonged wait to get into the restaurant on a somewhat chilly night (there were 6 people ahead of us who were not getting directed to allow us to enter), this was quite a great evening. We had excellent service and the food was all quite delectable. We started off with fresh bread and olive oil, which... More
