Fodor's Review

In a small dining room made warm and cozy by its pleasing and unpretentious decor, proprietor Giordano makes all diners feel like honored guests. Pappardelle "al Paradiso" takes pasta with seafood sauce to new heights, while risotto with shrimp, champagne, and grapefruit puts a delectable twist on a traditional dish. The inspired and original array of entrées includes meat and fish selections such as a salmon with honey and balsamic vinegar in a stunning presentation. Unlike many elegant restaurants, Al Paradiso serves generous portions and many of the delicious antipasti and primi are quite satisfying; you may want to follow the traditional Italian way of ordering and wait until you've finished your antipasto or your primo before you order your secondo.

Very expensive for its quality

I was at the restaurant on May 16. Food was ok, expensive for its quality. Decor pretty poor given it is in an alley! And it is the only restaurant in Venice where they added a 15% gratuity! When it is known that in Europe generally service is included in prices. I do not recommend this place. It abusive.
