This is a gem of a restaurant. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the seafood fettuccini, which had an abundance of fresh shrimps and scallops.

Went to Paradiso Restaurant for a birthday celebration. The waiter was on top of everything and made wonder recommendations that turned out to be perfect for us. Dinner was spectacular with just the right wine pairing. Nice atmosphere and fun people. Class all the way!

Nice place for special occasions only. Pricy with small portions, nice presentation. Nice menu choices. Better to make reservations. Go early for parking since it can be very limited if there are big parties going for dinner.

Had a nice dinner and drinks before a basketball game! Had the Kobe burger with fries this time. Great meal. Also had the remaining portion of my wife's short ribs with potatoes. The short ribs were excellent, very tender and flavorful! Also, the service was excellent!

This is our "go to" spot for special occasions close to home, and sometimes just for a nice meal out.
