Recently had a party of 8 at Paradiso and everyone was very impressed from the 9 year old to the vegetarian uncle. The beer list is extremely impressive- so many beers, so little time... Among the 7 adults we managed to try about 10 of them and found lots to enjoy. The pizza is excellent- not too thick in the... More

Returned to this fantastic pizzeria near my regular hotel in DC. Once again it didn't failed. Great pizzas together with a big beer Menu - just what one needs in the end of a hard working day.

Party of six on a holiday weekend and gave us an honest estimate of time on waiting list and worth the wait. Excellent pizza with a heavenly crust. Fantastic beer lists that make one want to return if for nothing else to explore more drinks. Warm, informative wait staff with quick unobtrusive service. A definite keeper on places to come...

Pizza was nice and crispy, would definitely go again. It is kind of a mid range pizza restaurant. They specialise in different beers, they do like a beer platter, where you can order 4 4oz beers for $14, with there being a big selection of beers, you can try more if you wanted to.

A nice restaurant that is just off Dupont Circle. We each had a pizza, that were faultless really except that the price was somewhat higher than elsewhere in the area. Good service and a good atmosphere make up for some of this.

Came here with a friend for a quick lunch. The pricing is OK, and the food is good depending on what you get. I got the Di Mari pizza and it was soggy and barely had any cheese on it however the crust was good and crispy. My friends pizza was was better though!

I arrived in D.C. around 9;30 on a Thursday and was looking for a good place to eat. Pizzeria Paradiso did not disappoint. The service was great and so was the food. I really liked the spicy pizza. They had a great beer selection too. Next time I'm in D.C., I'll be there!

We arrived in DC around 11pm. The concierge at the Palomar suggested we try this place - it was perfect. Close to the hotel, fresh food, full bar. Happy campers.
