You have to get in there early unless you want to wait some time. But, once in, the pizza is great, nice crust and good taste. Not too bad in price. Give it a try.

This pizzeria is located on DuPont Circle. The pizzas are freshly baked with a very light crust. Gluten free selection an option. Great beer selection and the service is excellent.

Stopped in for a late lunch. This place is just off of DuPont circle. The selection of brew is out of this world. We all had different types of beer and it was all good. We ordered two pizzas: vegetarian and a meat lovers. Both were excellent and were gone in no time. Service was outstanding and the staff was... More

We enjoyed Pizzeria Paradisco after finding it on trip advisor. The pizza is gourmet and the best ever. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The restaurant has a very extensive beer list. Highly recommend if you are in the area and want top quality pizza.

Visited on national day without women so there was a reduced menu and the place was packed at 8:30 in the evening. We waited about 35 mins for a table (they had indoor and outdoor available) Host was gracious and apologized for the wait. We were seated and our server attended to us fairly promptly. We had the Margaharita pizza... More
