The service is always highly professional. The food is consistently great. The wine selection is massive. The Paradiso is a tremendous place to impress anyone.

1 check-in Food was ok but they jacked up prices for New Year's Eve...by a lot. That's not cool. It was our first time here, and had they not taken advantage of NYE we would probably return but I didn't like that they charged double for some items they have on their regular menu. Service was good, just slow. They... More

Took my 98-year-old mom, a visiting friend from Nevada, and my mom's friend to Paradiso's in San Leandro for dinner. Arrived what I thought was early, but the place was very busy. Atmosphere was great including the fresh white tablecloths. We visited on a Wednesday night and was surprised at how busy they were. The food was excellent from the... More

Was introduced to this place a few years back and this place is a gem!! Great food, comfy atmosphere and at a good cost! I love love the fettuccine with smoked salmon! I have had almost everything on this menu! You will not be disappointed! From cocktails, appetizers, main course to desserts .....all worth your buck! Good specials too!

After flying into Oakland, we were looking for a place to eat dinner heading toward Hayward. Thankfully, TA showed us Paradiso. It was a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was very busy - always a good sign. And I wouldn't think many tourist would find this place - but I'm glad we did! Morgan was our waitress and did a...

We went to dinner at Paradiso last night. Although the place is very nice, don't worry about being out of place if you aren't dressed fancy (I say that because I was a little worried not knowing). There are plenty of kids and all sorts inside. But the food is amazing! We had the Organic Greens salad and it was... More

We were there for a retirement dinner for 25 people and were seated in private area in the back with enough seating for about 35. The front of the restaurant can be very loud, but it was not noisy in the back. Staff were attentive and the food came out in good time. The menu had a wide variety of... More

If you're looking for good cocktails and hearty apps, or a nice sit down meal, Paradiso is a good choice. The wine list is extensive, the servers very friendly, and the food is always well prepared. With its neighborhood feel and socializing atmosphere, you're bound to see someone you know if you live in the area. My favorites: Ahi Tuna,... More

This restaurant has a large menu from pizza, pasta, European, American and beyond. The decor is upscale, but the service is down to earth. They have an attached full bar.

I came with a large group for a birthday dinner, and the restaurant was busy with other groups--large and small. There are plenty of servers so the place is bustling. Our server was informative, personable and professional. He took his job seriously and yet was fun and witty. The menu is extensive, but they also have specials which we should... More
