I visited Paradiso as part of a large group. We all had starters, mains and desserts. My antipasto starter was okay, had seafood linguine for mains which was very good, and tiramisu for dessert, also very good. I also got to try my colleagues' dinners, and I must say calamari was beautiful and so were the chips. The bread on... More

We had my 30th birthday party here. As usual, the food and hospitality were first rate. There were 35 people to feed, everyone had lovely food with no problems. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paradiso, we love it!

This rustic restaurant is a hidden gem, just off the busy thoroughfare of Grey Street. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was wonderful. The mussels were presented with a very tasty sauce. The vegetarian lasagne were very good and the tiramisu to die for. Definitely an eatery to return to.

Went with a group. Had to wait all night for my change from the bar. People whose starter was missed had to wait to ask for it - waiter did not check that everyone had what they expected before moving from serving our table. Then had to ask for the last 2 of 4 coffees ordered and to wait for... More

We've been to Paradiso a few times and never been disappointed. Today we went at lunch time, usually we eat there evening. Food once again was perfect, huge portions and staff were very polite & professional. I've read some criticisms on here about slow service, I've personally never found that an issue. The staff are helpful without being overly familiar,... More

We arrived at 7:00, ordered by 7:15, starters were served at 8:00 and eventually the mains arrived at 8:45. The wait for food was ridiculous, my salmon arrived barely like warm but I didn't dare send it back because everyone would have finished by the time it arrived. The cocktails were very below par and honestly for what it cost... More

We had the pleasure of going for a meal here and were delighted to find that the food was every bit as good as it had been many years ago, We all chose from the specials menu and everyone enjoyed what they had. the wine was also very good. Thank you

I'd never heard of Paradiso until I read some very positive reviews so we gave it a chance. Warm welcome and offered a choice of 'booth' seating. Service was friendly and efficient throughout and all drinks and courses arrived promptly whilst not giving us any feeling of being rushed. We enjoyed Fishcake and Mussels starters followed by a Seafood Linguine... More

Paradiso Newcastle - NORTH EAST RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016 As voted by the Food Awards England. One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past, Paradiso is a local family run restaurant that has been a mainstay on the Newcastle gastro scene for 20 years. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure.

The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.
