Enjoyed their Pizza Macellaio, Paradiso salad with Italian red blend wine and draft brown beer. Terrific! They offer two desserts, with smaller serving size for $5, so shared the dark chocolate “salami” with unsweetened whipped cream. Just right. Delightful evening for the two of us....More

Loved it so much, visited twice over the weekend. 15 minute wait on Fri and no wait on Sunday. They told me they don’t take bookings so go early or be prepared to wait. Great pizza. Very nice tiramisu. Reasonably priced. Attentive service. Would recommend

I might have even given it an "excellent" but my wife didn't care for her special veggie pizza. Salad was maybe a little plain but the other three pies we ordered were great. Wonderful light, chewy, wood-fired crust. HUGE beer list. Great options I had...More

I had dinner at Pizzeria Paradiso, ordering the grilled pizza they're known for. It was good, but the wine was terrific, and more than anything, the servers made my experience great. Travelling alone can get one pretty mediocre service, as they expect I won't stay...More
