I have known this restaurant for years but hadn't been for some time. It really is a gem though and it's in a great position for a few drinks before. The ambience is perfect, staff polite but welcoming and informative, and the food is always so well presented and delicious! Great value too. Would be romantic for a couple but... More

We have not been back long from travelling in Italy, so with plenty of authentic meals under our belt, we were delighted to find that Paradiso is right up there with the best! The service is always good, and we found the food delicious. We were four so had different starters and mains ranging from pasta to steak and fish... More

It is always a great pleasure to dine at paradiso. The food is of a consistently excellent quality which brings the best of traditional Italian cuisine with a contemporary twist. The ingredients are always fresh and of high quality and the flavours are just right, delicate and nicely balanced. Unlike most contemporary dining , the portion sizes are traditionally Italian...

I had a genuinely excellent experience at Paradiso. The food was quick to arrive, plentiful and absolutely delicious! It reminded me of summer holidays in Italy...proper home cooked food with fresh ingredients. Pizzas crispy and delicious, pasta rich and tasty. The service was impeccable. The staff anticipated our every need and were smiling and helpful. They made us feel right... More

Lovely ristorante Italiano, the food is authentic with all the boldness of favour of your mamas kitchen, with generous portions to boot! Food to fill your belly and with a celebratory atmosphere this place is highly recommended. Clean, bright and welcoming!

I simply love this place. My friends and I have been coming for years but never actually wrote a review. The food is really lovely and the menu has something for everyone. I've tried a variety of choices but I love their pasta dishes. The beef shin ragu is amazing. However, what makes this restaurant is the staff. Always friendly... More

What a little gem we uncovered! Possibly the best Italian meal I've ever had and I don't think I'm exaggerating at all when I say this. The service is brilliant, the place is cute and somewhat romantic and the food is incredible. Honest, good food at great affordable prices! The only thing I will say is that it can get... More

We had a party of 12 go to paradiso for a family get together. The table was ready for us early allowing us to have a few drinks before our meal which was fantastic as we were struggling to get in anywhere else with the two kids & such a large group. The food was fantastic & staff amazing!!! So... More

Visited Saturday evening for the first time after reading good reviews. We weren't disappointed. Immediately the atmosphere was brilliant and we were given a warm welcome. The menu was extensive, we chose a sharing platter for starters which was very tasty and plentiful. We followed with huge tasty pizzas. My husband ordered white wine by mistake but it wasn't a...

Went for a meal while visiting the family on a Friday evening. It wasn't very busy when we arrived and we soon got shown to our table. We were seated next to staircase which was used regular by the staff who ran up and down them making quite a noise. Out of the 9 of us at least 6 ate... More

Description
Paradiso Newcastle - NORTH EAST RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR 2016 As voted by the Food Awards England. One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.
