We opened Pizzeria Paradiso so we could make the kind of pizza where the crust was the most important part. We started with a wood-burning oven. We also wanted our guests to feel like they were being treated to the comfort of home, so we placed the oven at the heart of the restaurant.

    Order the whole wheat crust pizza.

    Didi Marie · April 7, 2015
  • Kiara M.

    Prices are a bit on the higher side than your typical pizza place but the food is worth it.

    Bottarga is very good. Great beer list.

    Adrianna Tan · December 23, 2014

    Great beer selection and service. Good for gluten free pizza and beer.

    Cheeky McBumface · November 20, 2014
  • Gluten Free GRL

    As a gluten free celiac, I was not impressed with their gluten free crust. It is dense, thick, soggy and tastes more like an unleavened chickpea flatbread. At $17, I would go somewhere else.

    Gluten Free GRL · November 7, 2014
  • Jordan G.

    Incredibly authentic Italian fare.

    Pizzas are good, great taste ftom good toppings. Its the crust that missing something. Not too crispy nor too doughy, but also without much taste

    Scott Norris · October 4, 2014
  • deenuhfoowad

    one of the best pizzas in the area! order the one with the egg on it. so goood.

    deenuhfoowad · September 29, 2014
  • Teri R.

    1.5 ozs?? In your dreams (more like .75 oz) Really shitty pours. Stick to beer. Pizza is good. But the yuppie "can I get the white pizza but with red sauce and sub everything" vibe is sad. Grow up.

    Teri Rushka · September 3, 2014
  • Kevin K.

    Buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto!

    Kevin Kissinger · September 3, 2014
  • Trish T.

    Pizza is great and the gluten free crust is the best I have ever had. The beer selection is phenomenal but the gluten free drinks are just ok. They charge you for seltzer water.... Kind of lame.

    My first *real* beer (i.e. not natty light) was at their Georgetown location yrs ago. It was an Ommegang Rare Vos and it changed my world. Still have a huge soft spot for their Saison-heavy beer list.

    Sara Carothers · June 14, 2014
  • Mariana E.

    The quattro fromagi pizza is amazing!

    Mariana Escalante · June 11, 2014

    So good. Get the pizza with anchovies.

    Marcia Chatelain · March 30, 2014

    Atomica. Meat + heat = EAT.

    Jody Fellows · March 21, 2014
  • Janine H.

    This pizza is legitimately gross. I do not understand the positive ratings. Furthermore, while they have a great beer selection their happy hour is pathetic. Save your money and the calories.

    Janine Hanrahan · February 14, 2014

    Great beer list! Get a few flights and try something new.

    Great place, but they don't take American Express. Be prepared.

    The pizza is GREAT! Fresh ingredients and great choices for toppings. But even better is the BEER selection. FANTASTIC.

    "There is no try" Clearly Yoda never met a Paradiso bartender. You can try any beer before you commit. Yay beer!

    The calzone is the best I've had!

    Di Mare (mussels come with the shell)!! Tiramisu is SO. GOOD.

  • DC Dining Adventures

    You can't really go wrong with any decision here. With the said, the Pizza Napoletana is delicious for the anchovy and caper lovers out there.

    DC Dining Adventures · August 19, 2013
  • Ari W.

    Happy hour is half price drafts. Amazing food. Awesome staff!

    Ari Weaver · August 8, 2013

    We got sat right away and the place was busy!!!

    Jamaal Amyr · July 27, 2013
  • Laura F.

    The atomica is good but really hot! Picky people can choose toppings. The IPA beers were too bitter for me... Atmosphere is nice but noisy... Olives are free and yummy! Servers are great!

    Laura Faught · July 9, 2013
  • Sherman X.

    I love that they keep feeding you good olives. :)

    Sherman X · June 28, 2013
  • Arnaud G.

    If you like pizza, this is the place to be in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. I personally love the spicy "Diavola". Also, enjoy their humongous beer selection.

    Arnaud Gelb · June 18, 2013
  • wayne S.

    Great crust, bland sauce. Overall posh pizza presentation seems more important than flavour.

    wayne Scholes · June 12, 2013
  • Mark B.

    If you can't decide, ask for a split pizza. The espresso was excellent.

    Mark Buensalido · May 28, 2013
  • Ann F.

    If you're a meat-lover, get the Atomica. Incredible.

    Ann F · May 26, 2013

    St. Bernardus Abt 12. Score yourself a glass.

    Matt R · April 3, 2013

    Mourning the passing of the Achel Blonde.... with a Westmalle Tripel
