Il Paradiso Del Cibo

One of York’s best loved eateries, Il Paradiso Del Cibo is renowned for producing world class Italian and Sardinian food under the watchful eye of charismatic owner, Paolo Silesu. The restaurant has proved such a huge success through word-of-mouth that it can be a struggle to get a table, but once inside its intimate atmosphere you never want to leave.

Numerous celebrities have visited the haunt after hearing recommendations, more recently Red Dwarf star Craig Charles popped in for Christmas Eve supper and Hollywood icon Gabriel Byrne is also a regular. The restaurant produces some of the most spectacular pastas on the market and everything is cooked to order. But the chef has also mastered mouthwatering steaks, succulent chicken and numerous fish dishes. Il Paradiso Del Cibo has been such a success that Paolo has recently opened its sister restaurant Il Paradiso on the Forest.


I have known Paolo for many years so it’s been a joy to work on his PR. Apart from creating and regularly updating his twitter account I’ve also brought food reviewers to his restaurant. After spending so many joyful moments with family and friends in Il Paradiso, chatting and eating his delicious food which is nothing short of heavenly, doing PR for such a vibrant and much-loved place is a total joy.

‘I have known Lisa for such a long time, she is like part of the family. Lisa has really help with our media profile, especially in setting up twitter and increasing press coverage and she is always so supportive.’
