A synopsis from another site:



This anime takes place in Rome and seems to be a romance centered around a restaurant staffed by older dudes who all wear glasses. The protagonist of the first episode is a young woman visiting Rome to find her mother, or something. The first episode didn't exactly hook me but still I found it somewhat interesting and different then other shows this season. I imagine the plot is going to be somewhat like a soap opera having to do with romance, gentlemanly conduct, mystery, and lots of drama.

What did everyone else think?

pretty much exact same thoughts. I liked it, and it was different and unique, but really nothing that special.

The preview for the 2nd episode was downright surprising though.

I came in expecting more about Italian food and culture, so I was rather disappointed.

It seems more like an anime catering to a very specific kind of romantic fantasy, and while that's fine, it's not for me! :P

My thoughts exactly. I was hoping for something more along the lines of Bartender; instead it looks like it's going to be a May-December romance.

Talking Re: Ristorante Paradiso

I'm Italian and watching the first episode was hilarious!
Japanese can pronounce Italian quite well, since both Japanese and Italian are syllabic languages, but the seiyuu didn't put the right "tone" to the Italian words at all, or better, they pronounced them too flat. XD

Also, the way the depicted Rome... ROFLMAO. Artistic as it is, Rome is a noisy, frantic and dirty ( :( ) city, not a photo slide of watercolours paintings mixed with CG with pretty textures! XD

Overall the backgrounds looks beautiful, but they forced a mood which doesn't belong to the real Rome at all.

Still, at least this series seems original, in a way, and it could be funny to see even if only to be amused by the way Japanese people, of who created this story at least, look at Italy.

Unfortunately, I will never be able to take an anime like this seriously. :(

Gotta say this one is pretty stylish in its own way but this is not kinda my thing. I bet who likes more romantic animes would like this where development takes time.

I kinda wished they focused more on the cooking. Despite that, I liked the series a lot. There was one thing that irked me about the story....
