I have been looking for 15 years for an Great Italian Restaurant in Seattle but my search came to an end when I tried Ristorante Paradiso! It's more than food, it's art!! The toasted bread is to die for! The pasta is cooked to perfection and the portions are very large! Before I decided to write a review, I had lunch here 15 times and have tried everything on their menu to make sure that they are consistent with their menu and service! I truly have to tell you that I have never been so Impressed with a restaurant! This place gets my vote on Best Restaurant in Seattle!!!!!
Bear with me. I am old! This place use to be one of our favorites in Kirkland. I hate to say this but it has lost flavor. We frequented this restaurant for many years until we moved out of state. We recently came back to visit and we were saddened that this restaurant has changed so much. The staff that use to make us feel so much at home is no longer there. We asked and were told that Francesco has moved back to Italy. Along with the ambiance, the quality of the food was just not like it use to be. DISAPPOINTED.

We went to Ristorante Paradiso yesterday to try out their 3 for 25 deals. I have done many of these deals before and had very good experiences but this place was just okay. Food: The food was fairly mediocre. When we got to the 3rd course the waiter told us none of the desserts on the menu were available but ice-cream, which was very disappointing as we all wanted Tiramisu. What got me more annoyed was another server came up and told us that they have been running out of desserts every day. Wouldn't you think if you are running out of desserts everyday you would make more so you don't run out the next time? Service: Our server was nice but he was very loopy. Maybe he was tired or had too many tables to wait on. He couldn't remember who got what dish and there were only 5 of us and 4 of us got the same thing. All our food didn't come out together, some got their food early and a couple got theirs a few minutes later. He did call his owner about the dessert and gave us an option to take off $2 off the bill or get a chocolate fudge dessert instead of the ice-cream. It was just an awkward experience. I am not sure if I will go here again.

My children had planned a special mothers day for me at Paradiso restaurant. I was really looking forward to it. Sadly it was a big disappointment. We arrived at 1:30 and the restaurant had plenty of seating. Our ceasar salad was swimming in what tasted like store bought dressing. I was surprised when our food took 40 minutes and one of the meals came five minutes after the others. By the time the final dish arrived our meals were getting cold. My daughters pasta was extremely salty but she did not complain to the waitress because we had already waited so long. The service was good, however I would not recommend this restaurant.

This place is great, we got sat right away and its got a very romantic feel to it. Excellent pasta and everything was simple quality. The house dressing is light and satisfying and the gnocci is excellent. Also, recommended the Scaloppine if you are into that sort of thing. Simple fresh and pretty quick. I will go again.

My favorite Italian Restaurant! My wife and I have eaten there many times and we have always left very satisfied and happy. The food is absolutely awesome! Not thrown together like a ""Vinces"" or ""Olive Garden"" It looks like they actually put some effort in the recipe. The wait staff was very kind and the atmosphere was quant. I have had a few different dishes there but the Putanesca is my favorite. Also..the Kalamari is exceptional!
