Attended with a group of colleagues and was greeted very well. The ambience is rustic, but simple. The menu is not overwhelming (which is good). We tried the Siciliana, Quattro Fromiaggi, Genovese, and the Margarita. They were all pretty good - we would've preferred if the Margarita had less olive oil. The Quattro Fromiaggi was the best one though -... More

We ate here once and once for take out. The pizza is really good and made with fresh ingredients. It's a popular place and they don't take reservations. It's obviously a popular neighborhood spot.

Pleasantly surprised that this wasn't just pizza but great salads and appetizers. Wonderful selection of craft beers and their house wines were better than expected too! Food was unique, fresh and tasty. Our waiter was great, gave us some good recommendations and allowed us some substitutions. Excellent experience!

Amazing hand made pizza. Sauce and dough were perfection. Very busy place. We stayed at the Kimpton hotel up the street and this place had a line every night. Worth the wait, but be smart and make reservations :-)

This place really is a pizza paradise! We went here twice over the course of a long weekend in D.C. and loved it both times. The delicious pizzas are made fresh and baked in a wood-fired pizza oven. While waiting for your pizza, you can order from a very extensive beer menu, which was a huge plus!

This restaurant has a neighborhood feel and serves excellent salads, pizza and pasta. Our table of 5 was uniformly thrilled with the selection and flavors. The wine list is good, and our server was very nice. I don't know why people would say their pizza was soggy - this was nice wood-fire grilled and fantastic. Perhaps not so good for... More

We went to Pizzeria Paradiso twice over 2 weeks in the area. Both times the food, service, and atmosphere were great. If you like beer you'll be amazed by the beer menu. We all had pizza both times and it was absolutely delicious, the staff were warm and friendly, and the place has a great buzz to it. I would... More

We ordered 2 small pizzas online; as they come, yet they surcharged us for the toppings. Both pizzas were soggy and the cheese with toppings slid off. The Parma ham was salty and presented in oversized slabs. This was the most overpriced and disgusting pizza. I wish I had taken pics.

I was staying at a near-by hotel and ordered a margherita pizza for take-out on a cold, snowy night. It was just average and I was disappointed based on the reviews.
