    An unexpected favorite.
    I really was thrown when I first started watching this anime.I'd never seen or heard of an anime that had a male cast of strictly older guys. Over the course of it's 11 episodes, I've grown very fond of this show and am sad to see that it's over. It turned out to be the single gem in the current anime season and there is such a wonderful sense of family in this that is hard to find elsewhere.

    A Decent Mild Distraction.
    Ristorante Paradiso is the kind of series that comes every once in a while and becomes like a breath of fresh air amidst the popular mainstream series and their generic clones. As an Otaku it is hard not to appreciate what it boldly tried to venture on and yet lament on how it fell short.

    Storyline
    While the first 2 episodes seem promising for a story about a taboo love with family ...

    Why was this so good!
    Ristorante Paradiso is wonderful anime, where initially I thought it was going to be silly and not good at all. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong. This anime is an endearing anime about family/relationship complexes, handled in the best way possible. At 11 episodes, it doesn't feel rushed but even at the end, which is wrapped up nicely, I felt like it was done but there could be ...

    PS RE: Ristorante Paradiso
    Ristorante Paradiso was a great anime to watch. The setting was gorgeous and the plot was very good. You'll find that once you've started it abruptly ends and you wish the creator would have carried on a couple more episodes instead of hanging everyone off of an angst-y cliff.

    Give this unique anime a try!
    Watching Ristorante Paradiso was like settling back with a good book. It's storyline and pacing had that "day in the life" feeling as if you were peeking in on these characters' daily routine. Each one of them felt very real, very alive and the story quite believable. No bells and whistles here (none needed!) just a lovely, lovely tale of a girl and her relationships with the folks who work at an ...

  • Truly binge-worthy from start to finish
    It is now in my top 5 shows on crunchyroll. Great job developing each character and the artwork captured Rome perfectly. The little details they spent time in doing perfectly, from the pouring of the wine, the detailed Ristorante down to the flooring. The storyline flows perfectly from beginning to end. I really wish they did a dubbed version in Italian.

  • Came for food, stayed for love.
    As a woman who finds older men more attractive, I found it easy to relate to the main character. I watched it without knowing what it was about, and just assumed it would focus around the food because its a restaurant. However, this anime is so much more and was so wonderful.

  • Sweet Unique Romance
    I first found this anime on Youtube because it was recommended to me from a friend. I couldn't find this anime with good quality to watch at that time. So, youtube was the only option to watch it from. At first, I thought it was a weird anime due to how everyone wore glasses and they're all types of elder man following the owner's wife's preferences. Eventually it started to get better because I ...

  • Charming Little Tale
    I really enjoyed relaxing to this series. It's a peaceful portrayal of the love and family connections of the members of a little Italian restaurant. There's low-key emotional strife and upsets that the characters work through and it all comes together very well at the end. This is not a series you watch if you're looking for adventure or excitement or even passion - but it is romantic in an ...
