This is the place for both a good meal and a good visit with family and friends. Allow plenty of time, for even with a reservation you may have to wait 15 or 20 minutes. DO make a reservation. The menu has substantial variety, and...More

Since moving to San Leandro, we've eaten at Paradiso several times. This is a busy restaurant in a nice room offering very good traditional Italian dishes, typically to a local crowd. There's a reason why it's rated the best in town. It's a good idea...More

Ranges from exotic pizza oven offerings to great and interesting entrees and appetizers. Good bar, friendly servers. Weekends get crowded. No need to go past San Leandro for a great food experience.
