Went as a group of 10 in December, met by an abrupt manager who took us upstairs to what I can only describe as a canteen. Food was average at best, pizza dry and tasteless. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful, but that failed to make up for the poor surroundings and food. If you decide to go insist... More

I've been to paradiso many times and would thoroughly recommend to students or anyone else. Low prices and an interesting setting - based on 3 levels - means it is suitable for groups and couples alike. Food is tasty and good value

When Paradiso was booked as the venue for our work Christmas party meal there were a few murmurings of discontent around the office about a one star hygiene rating. However, we soon heard that Paradiso won a top national award and the aforementioned rating had improved. What I personally experienced was a top notch dinner, the highlights of which were... More

Spent New Year's Eve 2015 and a hen party here and enjoyed the food both times. Staff were very nice and there was a nice atmosphere to the place - good value for money from what I can remember (as they also had good prosecco).

Firstly I want to start off by saying the food was very nice but the service was absolutely appalling. Yes... More

Looking for a lunch in Newcastle we had walked past Paradiso many times. This time, we had tried a couple more places first, but they all seemed to have pricy Christmas menue; Paradis had a christmas menu but their usual a la carte was available - we could have pizza, yay! We shared a bruschetta to start, then actually didn't... More

Entrance was up an alley and it didn't look like much but I was totally wrong. Food was amazing, the pasta was delicious. I was in a party of 12 and there were no complaints which is normally unknown for a big group. We were early but our table was ready. Service was fantastic, we never ran out of drinks... More

It is not surprising that Paradiso won the best restaurant award for 2016! The excellent quality of the food speaks for itself! Great atmosphere, great staff, an authentic taste of Italy in the centre of Newcastle! What more is there to say other than get booked up!!!!

I have known this restaurant for years but hadn't been for some time. It really is a gem though and it's in a great position for a few drinks before. The ambience is perfect, staff polite but welcoming and informative, and the food is always so well presented and delicious! Great value too. Would be romantic for a couple but... More

We have not been back long from travelling in Italy, so with plenty of authentic meals under our belt, we were delighted to find that Paradiso is right up there with the best! The service is always good, and we found the food delicious. We were four so had different starters and mains ranging from pasta to steak and fish... 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. 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.
