TAMPA BAY’S BEST DISH:
LUMP CRAB LINGUINI
#Amatrice is the birthplace of amatriciana, a tomato-based sauce flavored with guanciale, which is a cured pork cheek, served over pasta.
For a limited time, #CafféParadiso will serve this wonderful sauce with any kind of pasta: Penne, Farfalle, Linguini, Capellini or Spaghetti. We will donate 100% of the proceeds for every bowl of amatriciana we sell to help the people of Amatrice recover.
Our hearts and prayers are with the people of Amatrice, Italy as they continue to recover from the devastating #earthquake.
Please stop by and enjoy this delicious dish and know you are helping those across the ocean.

USA TODAY SELECTS CAFFE PARADISO ONE OF THE TOP 10 RESTAURANTS IN TAMPA, FL
"Small in square footage, maybe, but definitely not in taste or quality. This fabulous Italian restaurant, tucked into a shopping center, warmly welcomes guests with age-old favorites like tender osso buco and fragrant linguine with clam sauce. It accompanies the main dishes with savory soups and fresh salads to craft a meal that's simple in style but unquestionably satisfying. The signature dish, involtini di carne, is especially good; it pairs veal filets with prosciutto and herbs and cooks them in a wine-infused tomato sauce. The succulent veal and combination of flavors make for a sublime entree."
WFLA Meteorologist, Steve Jerve, lists Caffe Paradiso as Best Italian Restaurant in Tampa
“It’s very nondescript, in a strip mall off MacDill [Avenue]. I’ve had food in Italy and I’d say it’s pretty authentic.”

"I had an epiphany at Caffe Paradiso last night. I actually DO like Italian (especially pasta) when it's fresh and creatively prepared...which it was here. Who knew???"
