    Best spumoni on the planet

    Worth a trip just for the spumoni. Pasta dishes very good to excellent, although portion sizes are small. Bread could be MUCH better.

    Great Neighborhood Spot

    New to the neighborhood I need to find a restaurant with good food and reasonable prices, I FOUND IT AT CAFE PARADISO! The homemade pasta is incredible. All tyhe ingredients are top quality and it's obvious the chief takes pride in his product. The food was very well prices and the variety was excellent from pasta to steak, seafood dishes, and amazing dessert. The waiters and bussers were all extrememly attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun, good for date nights or family meals after a trip to the zoo. The dinner special was great, one app, entree, and dessert for under $30! This included the fillet mignon and homemade pasta dishes. The wine list is extensive and the house wines are good too. I can't wait to try the patio out in the spring. I had a fnatastic experience and look forward to the next!

    Poor Service

    Our party of 5 was promised immediate seating and were left waiting for 30 minutes in the bar area yet every 5 minutes we were told we would soon be seated. We were finally seated and the food came quickly but we wanted wine and were never offered to place a drink order nor could we get the attention of a server. Dirty plates were never removed and we were never offered dessert until we asked for the check. We politely explained our issue with the service and were offered no apology - then no one came to take our payment so we left cash on the table. The food was good but expensive and definately not worth the stress of the service. Definatley not pride taken in the job here-and this party of 5 included 3 former waiters/waitresses.

    I got the fetticini with alfredo sauce and it was too cheesy. There was too much sauce and hard to avoid. I tried the artichoke ravioli but we asked for it with alfredo sauce and, again, too cheesy. The ravioli was great though. We also got scallops and clams and shrimp and it was okay. They only gave us one scallop. The service was great and the food, decent, but the atmosphere was great and it was nice to sit outside.

    Amazing Contemporary Italian Restaurant

    I always loved Cafe Paradiso, and now they rennovated it to a new contemporary look, with orange, white and dark brown colors - looks amazing. Their food is excellent and very fresh (my favorite is Seafood Ravioli). They have two bars and private dining room, great for happy hours and events.
