My daughter spotted the olives on the table as we walked by the restaurant and next thing I know we were ordering lunch. This place had more atmosphere then most of the fine dining restaurant on King St. Had a nice anti pasta lunch. Crunchy bread, mozzarella, tomatoes and prosciutto. With basil. My girlfriend had the pizza margarita. It was good but really enjoyed mine. She enjoyed the olives so much they brought her more.

Great selection of artisanal pizzas. Prices are fine for the quality of the crust and toppings. We had the Pizza Bianca. Creamy ricotta, wilted arugula, roasted grape tomatoes, and speck, expertly seasoned. The Giardinere antipasto was light and delicious. Great selection of IPAs on tap.

This is a must stop every time we go to Alexandria. The best tasting pizza period. If you like hot foods you must get the Atomic Pizza. My wife says its too hot but I think its just right. Great place for families or a couple out for the day. Good selection of brews and GREAT pizza to go with it. If you don't stop here you are making a mistake

Old Town Alexandria, which prides itself on not allowing fast food restaurants, has until recently not provided a very good selection of family restaurants. Pizza Paradiso was one of the first in some recent openings, and it instantly became a favorite of diners of all ages. The pizza, Neapolitan style, is what most people come for, and it does not disappoint. But I must mention the Panini sandwiches which rank among the best in the entire Washington area. Most people pass over these in favor of the pizza. If you want a higher level cuisine, don't miss the sandwiches, especially the veggie Panini. For those who enjoy beer to wash down the meal, this restaurant offers hundreds of labels. All in all, it is an enjoyable experience, and it's only steps away from the waterfront.

My boyfriend and I eat here every few months. We usually order the Quattro Formaggi, sometimes with sausage. The large pizza is only 12" and is very thin, so don't expect that a large pizza can be shared. Also, ration your drink because the staff, although friendly, are never around and don't give you time to ask for a refill when they do appear. For the price, you're better off going across the street to Bugsy's.
