  • 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.

    A delicious fantasy.
    What Antique Bakery is to young men and French pastries, Ristorante Paradiso is to older men in glasses and Italian cuisine. It's not really grounded in reality for waiters and restaurant owners, but if you can forget about reality it's very enjoyable. The animation is a little strange (big mouths) but it's easy to get used to. The characters are the best part of this show. Unlike the typical ...

  • 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 ...

    Quite a good surprise
    I really didn't expect to follow this anime with such interest and passion. I really loved the idea of discovering the present and past life of all the employees in an italian restaurant. A good change from the usual "save-the-world", "which-one-to-love" and " believe-in-myself-to succeed-in-life" storytelling in most animes nowadays. What may unsettle the viewers would be the storytelling which ...
