The Paradiso never fail to impress! The food, the atmosphere and the staff are all outstanding every time. As a family we come here a lot and we always leave very impressed and excited for our next visit. I would certainly recommend!

My husband and myself decided to try this restaurant for lunch on the August Bank holiday and we were both suitably impressed with it. The service was brilliant and we were immediately made welcome. The menu is very reasonably priced with a lot of varied choice and my main problem was that I was tempted by too many dishes. I... More

Good food but the place is always really cold so if you like warm surroundings give it a miss or wear warm clothes They don't sell my favourite vodka so I don't bother with a an alcoholic drink with my meal :-(.

We have been going here for a number of years and have also converted many of our friends and family. Food is always great and nothing is any trouble(changing items on specials menu etc). You have to try the Espresso Martinis!!! Just go!!!

We are regular lunch time visitors as it is such good value with really tasty food. Guiseppi and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. Is equally good in the evening and perfect to visit prior to attending the theatre or cinema.

We have a regular lunchtime get together with friends and Paradiso has become our favourite spot. The staff are very welcoming, always friendly and accommodating (as an example changing the background music to suit a group of jazz musicians and then remembering each time we return!). We eat off the lunchtime special menu which is excellent value for money. The... More

I was very impressed when visiting with a group of friends. From the friendly nature when I booked over the phone to the warm 'goodbye' Paradiso was hard to fault. We all chose from the Daytime Set Menu that runs until 7pm and offers two courses for £9.95. The menu gave good choice and included vegetarian and gluten-free options. The... More

I rant on about this being the best italian in Newcastle and yet again Giuseppe and Cafe Paradiso lived up to that billing. Took best friends there from Scotland and the USA for their first visit and they were knocked out by the quality of the food and sparkling maitre d dervice from Giuseppe. "Best Italian meal ever" was the... 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.
