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

I have enjoyed dining at Paradisos for over 15 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always cooked fresh to order and the service is excellent, whether they are catering for couples or larger work parties. Italian food and very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

We went here as a group of 12 on a strict timescale (1hr). We pre-ordered the evening before most of us had 2 courses and we were in and out within the hour. There was great selection on the menu, reasonably priced and the service was good too Will definitely be going back.

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.
