Been coming here for a while now, food has always been great. Really enjoy coming here because we are always welcomed and we feel very relaxed.

We had my 30th birthday party here. As usual, the food and hospitality were first rate. There were 35 people to feed, everyone had lovely food with no problems. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paradiso, we love it!

This rustic restaurant is a hidden gem, just off the busy thoroughfare of Grey Street. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was wonderful. The mussels were presented with a very tasty sauce. The vegetarian lasagne were very good and the tiramisu to...More

Went with a group. Had to wait all night for my change from the bar. People whose starter was missed had to wait to ask for it - waiter did not check that everyone had what they expected before moving from serving our table. Then...More

I'd never heard of Paradiso until I read some very positive reviews so we gave it a chance. Warm welcome and offered a choice of 'booth' seating. Service was friendly and efficient throughout and all drinks and courses arrived promptly whilst not giving us any...More

Wow - we could not believe just how much this restaurant did not live up to the hype. We visited here for my girlfriend's birthday and upon arrival our table was not ready so we waited at the bar (which was sticky and generally unwelcoming)....More

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, Paradiso is a local family run restaurant that has been a mainstay on the Newcastle gastro scene for 20 years. 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.
