The food was very good, the service was excellent except for the speed of getting our bill but I guess everyone going too the theatre wants to leave at the same time.

We have had fantastic business meetings, family gatherings and date nights here. It's not too formal, clean, tasty and has a great patio in the summer as well. Try the crab ravioli!

And for the most part, it was pretty good. Maybe a smig above average. A quick run down: the complimentary focaccia was a little greasy but we all ate it, the grilled clamaría was tender, the penne was nothing that could not be easily thrown together at home with a grocery store rotisserie chicken but the diner liked it and...

It's been a few years since I've been to Paradiso and was long overdue. Located at the corner of Lakeshore and Navy in downtown Oakville, Paradiso offers a selection of Mediterranean dishes with a nice selection of rooms, including being able to sit right by the open kitchen. Sitting across from the open kitchen, being able to speak to the... More

We had a late lunch at Paradiso on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a very attractive restaurant , nicely done in dark wood . The hammered copper table tops give it a French bistro feel . Even though the restaurant is quite big , the numerous small rooms give it a cozy feel. The staff is helpful... More

The food and service at Paradiso are wonderful. We had a cozy table on a rainy night, which was perfect for our anniversary dinner. The menu is very interesting and all the dishes looked good. The crab ravioli was super tasty. Highly recommend.

Located in the heart of Downtown Oakville and Historic Village Square, Paradiso offers much more than a place to have an exquisite meal. The warm, intimate atmosphere flows throughout the restaurants but the heart of Paradiso can be found in the open concept kitchen.
The cuisine which draws inspiration for the European Mediterranean is prepared before your eyes and it's easy to see why "Dinner IS The Show" keeps guests coming back again and again.
Paradiso offers innovative entertaining concepts for corporate team building events, winemaker's dinners, and weekly recreational hands-on cooking classes in the Cooking Studio.
The interactive cooking classes at Paradiso cater to individuals and groups, and Read admits these popular classes book up very quickly. The recreational classes are inspired by culinary Mediterranean regions such as Italy, Greece, Spain and France. The Cooking Studio also offers classes for those who want to hone their skills. The most popular class is the Signature Dishes of Paradiso.
The culinary team building classes promote collaboration and communication between team members. Co-workers enjoy a unique and rewarding hands-on cooking experience that nurtures teamwork and leadership.
