I own both, both are great.  Quite different. Most obvious difference in the grip angle, the GSP is more upright, 63 degree angle v 55 for the Pardini (for reference a 1911 is 74 degrees). Also, the GSP is heavier, with the weight in the front, making it somewhat nose heavy.  

Both have excellent 2 stage triggers, on mine, the GSPs are more crisp. I think I like it a bit better.

I shoot both guns on 22 and 32, and the Pardini is easier to switch uppers. Pardini is also a little easier to clean.

In 22 caliber both are 100% reliable.  In 32, the my GSP is more reliable (ymmv).

Overall I probably like the Pardini better. Balance and weight.

The grip angle mentioned by Greg was a big issue for me, especially with the 32. I've now got Rink "upright" grips on my Pardini's which match the GSP grip angle. Much more comfortable for me, but obviously very much a personal preference.
Overall, I also prefer the Pardini's, but the GSP's are a proven, very reliable design and are very nice. And Earl's Walther Service is outstanding.

I personally have never had a single malfunction with my HP Pardini in 32 ACP! Over 10000 rounds and counting

Own a Pardini BE edition, have shot many GSP and SSPs. I like them all , however they have compromises in what I would deem to be an "Ideal" gun. 

For me the biggest rant is that I find the Euro ergonomic grips to fit my hand poorly and point to where i do not want and have to adjust for the offset. I always seem to be fussing with the grips trying to find a fit that works well. I never seem to have a problem with slabs on my .45.
