I recently threw my wife a surprise birthday party at Paradiso. What a fabulous experience from beginning to end! I found the restaurant on citysearch. Now, I'm not a great party planner, so I was a little nervous about the whole thing. When I first called, the manager was unavailable, but she returned my call very quickly. She asked all the right questions and really made me feel at ease. She and the chef worked on a special menu that fit my limited budget. They took care of every detail-the cake, wine suggestions, ordered flowers and came up with a clever way to get my wife there! The dinner itself was fabulous and all of our freinds raved. I was really impressed with how proffesional the staff was-they didn't skip a beat-not one of our guests ever had to ask for anything! Then to top it all off they gave my wife and I a bottle of champagne and a gift certificate to the restaurant as a thank you. They really made me look like a super star that night!
