My wife and I ate dinner at Paradiso last Friday. The restaurant is located directly on Lakeshore Rd less than 2 blocks from The Oakville Centre For The Performing Arts and does offer a couple of tables with a nice window view. My wife's crab ravioli was excellent but my bouillabaisse was a little bland. The wine and dessert were... More

My friend and I went to Paradiso in Oakville for a mid-afternoon lunch after looking through the shops in Oakville yesterday. We were seated in the first booth inside the restaurant and it appeared that no server was assigned to look after our table. Finally, the server that sat us down there asked if anyone had been by to greet... More

Had a meal for 2. Despite being Monday the place was packed. Bar side was too noisy to hear each other speak so they moved us to the bar by the open kitchen, which was great. Short ribs & Osso Bucco were great. Sensible wine prices. Lovely desserts. Would definitely return

We've been there twice in the last week and there is always plenty to chose from. This last time we had their Fresca pizza and it was delicious. They still make wonderful crab cakes. We never tire of this spot. The time befor this was a birthday celebration with five family members and it was great.

We enjoyed a custom experience which included cooking instruction and helping to prepare our own meal called "An Evening in Tuscany". The staff did a great job, we had a lot of fun, and they made sure our food was excellent.

I attended a cooking class one evening and have to say I was a bit reluctant to eat the meal at the end of it! The kitchen was dirty and dusty and I was absolutely shocked!! I checked the Food Inspection report for them the next day and was very surprised to learn that Paradiso had actually passed an inspection... More

This is a bustling place. Efficient waiterstaff buzz from table to table. Maybe not the fastest service, but they are affable and get everything right. Food goes from okay to terrific.

My wife and I decided to try Paradiso after not dining there for many years and we're glad we did. While the menu options were limited on the Taste of Oakville promotion, the chicken dish we both selected was well prepared and very tasty. As well, the salad was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. We will most likely... More

The heat was so high as to be uncomfortable. Food was average, the service was friendly, but VERY slow.

Located in the heart of Downtown Oakville and Historic Village Square, Paradiso offers much more than a place to have an exquisite meal. The warm, intimate atmosphere flows throughout the restaurants but the heart of Paradiso can be found in the open concept kitchen.
The cuisine which draws inspiration for the European Mediterranean is prepared before your eyes and it's easy to see why "Dinner IS The Show" keeps guests coming back again and again.
Paradiso offers innovative entertaining concepts for corporate team building events, winemaker's dinners, and weekly recreational hands-on cooking classes in the Cooking Studio.
The interactive cooking classes at Paradiso cater to individuals and groups, and Read admits these popular classes book up very quickly. The recreational classes are inspired by culinary Mediterranean regions such as Italy, Greece, Spain and France. The Cooking Studio also offers classes for those who want to hone their skills. The most popular class is the Signature Dishes of Paradiso.
The culinary team building classes promote collaboration and communication between team members. Co-workers enjoy a unique and rewarding hands-on cooking experience that nurtures teamwork and leadership.
