Maybe it was due to Fathers Day but this was the worst experience we have ever had at this place we typically love. The wait for literally everything was beyond acceptable even going on with the idea things may move a little slower due to the occasion. The server seemed flustered. Took her forever just to take drink orders. Drinks too forever to come out. Food took even longer. First plates/appetizers didn’t arrive until after main courses were almost completed so we sent back. Even getting the bill to pay was a long wait. I sure hope this is not an indication of what’s to expect here moving forward.

This was my first visit to Paradiso, as I live in Southern California, but was in San Leandro visiting family. I found the dining room to be a very pleasant space -- it's got high ceilings yet the noise level was low enough we didn't have to shout, which earns a shout-out to whoever's responsible for the thoughtful acoustic design. Service was very attentive, and the food was decent.

Started with the Dungeness Crab and Avocado, it was so good I almost ordered another one. went with the Pork Scallopini instead and was very pleased. The Pork was fork tender and there were plenty of mushrooms in the sauce, shoot, I even ate the mashed potatoes. I normally skip the starch but this dish was so balanced everything just went together. Jesus was spot on with the meal service and the Creme Brule was its usual excellent self.

When for Father's Day . No wait time even though we were fifteen minutes late. We were offered choices of seating. The outside area was perfect. There was a short, very short wait for service but a waiter came over with water, glasses, bread and dip because he saw we had not received it. Our waiter apologized for his delay and everything else was spot on. The food was outstanding.

Highly recommend for a date night. Food is delicious, large portions and great service. Outdoor patio was beautiful. Very well kept and clean and distanced between tables, it was our first time eating at a restaurant since pandemic and we felt comfortable. Definitely will return.

First time back since pandemic began. Paradiso is better than ever - the food was innovative and delicious. Also, the separators between the tables were great - they made each table into a semi-private dining room. We will be back for certain!

The food at Paradiso never disappoints! Have not been there to dine in since before the pandemic began, but it is as good, if not better than I remember it to be. Love the atmosphere, it is very loud and boisterous, a little difficult to hear those at your table (we were seated in the bar area, can’t speak for the restaurant side), but it wasn’t a problem. It was so nice to be dining inside and hearing other happy diners all around us. Highly recommend Paradiso for the atmosphere, service and mostly the food!

Our party was upon arrival. Partitions separating tables inside. Great service! Food and drinks all very good. Only negative, $18 for a burger and fries is a tad steep (although the burger was very good).

Our waiter this time around seemed a bit in a rush almost seemed as if you guys may have been a bit under staffed.
We would’ve have liked to be checked on a bit more often.
Food was exceptional as always!
Price point is still a bit on the higher end. Don’t mind occasionally but we won’t come as often as we’d like because it is a bit too high on the price point.
