One of the first things I noticed was the stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of a daily routine. If you are in a rush, and need the quickness of a drive through, you may want to skip Paradiso's. The owner was prompt, but he seemed to be working on a singular speed. Saying that, if there was no one in line ahead of us, we probably would have gotten through much quicker. Plus, it's nice to slow down and enjoy the environment every once in a while.
The food was absolutely delicious and everyone was happy with what they ordered. Pricing was more than fair, and is adjustable based on how much food you want to get (i.e. adding sides vs. ordering a la carte). If you're looking for quality, homemade Italian food, I highly recommend checking out Paradiso's.
