Editorial Review – Italian restaurant serves pasta, antipasti, soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Carry-out and catering available.
Best service, price, food... – What a nice place to eat. The owner goes out of his way to serve you and make sure that you are happy. I really recommend this place. I am a very hard person to please when it comes to service and food and this is my first time leaving a review for anything. I am taking the time to write this, check this place out.
It's a must!!!
Bland and Bad Service – This place is not worth a visit. From the outside it looks nice and worthwhile, however this is not the case. Pasta is not too hard to make, but Paradiso successfully will take your $10 for a bowl of bland pasta. I ordered the Fettuccini Carbonata which is supposed to have red peppers, egg, ham, and parmasian... but what I got was a bowl of over cooked pasta, bland alfredo sauce, and a few pieces of bacon.
In addition, the service was poor. The waiters were climbing over other people's seats to serve food. Obviously this place is not big enough to serve & eat.
If you're looking for Italian, check elsewhere.

Fun place with fantastic food and servic – we were so pleased with the service, the food, the ambience and can say that it is our favorite casual and fun restaurant Among the excellent dishes we had, 3 were just fantastic: the grilled chicken special, the grilled salmon and Penne a la Vodka.
Job well done!
Lovely ladies! – I do enjoy the food, the service and especially the ladies at lunch. It has become my hangout to relax, eat well, listen to good music and enjoy seeing those lovely ladies at lunch. It is the perfect place for a late breakfast business meeting before the busy lunch where sometimes one waits for a table or takes out.
best choice and quality – Incredible choice: from the penne alla vodka to the penne rustica to the fettucine paradiso and the polpette, the chickenpesto, the roasted chicken, the sauteed mussels, etc... and this is without counting the daily specials and the subsitutions the friendly staff will promptly execute! You can specify hotter if you like or milder (great for kids). The price is unbeatable and the service so friendly you feel right at home: actually you will fast see the same people coming back again and again!
Excellent service – We hosted a birthday party at this restaurant and were very pleased. The service was impeccable, the food was very tasty and our guests were quite impressed.
the ysaved te day – I was sick and had to stay home. I got a great menu selection online, the lady on the phone, Dorianne was so helpful. I got my dinner and soup within 40 minutes. Thank you Pasta Paradiso!
Watery and Bland – WOW, there are a lot of 9s and 10s for a place so consistantly inconsistant. While a select few dishes are always good, most pasta dishes we've tried (tomato, cream, and rosa) have been watery and flavorless. Even the day's specials! They are very nice there, but it doesn't seem they taste test a recipe, or even follow one.
PARADISE IN SAN FRANCISCO – I eat out all the time therefore I am always searching for a restaurant that offers the best quality for a fairly reasonable price. I have found it and it is Pasta Paradiso.
Where can you find a DELICIOUS N.Y. steak sandwich with a side salad for $7? and the homemade Tiramisu is out of this world. I am addicted and in paradise!
