I come up for every track season and being from queens I know good Italian food. The owner used to run a famous Italian restaurant down in queens, Don Peppes, and if you know Don Peppes you know you can't get better italian food anywhere else. Paradisos is just as good if not better. The baked clams are heaven and the pasta is always perfect. Im a pretty big man, and the portions are more than enough at this place. The owners make you feel welcomed like you at at their house, real old fashioned ya know. Try the shrimp oreganatos, unbelievable. the wait staff is friendly and helpful if you've never been. The prices are reasonable too.
Pros: baked clames, shrimp oreganto
Cons: sometimes there's a wait during track season
