A nice location in old town. Large open windows, give a nice view. Not too crowded. The draft list was slightly worse than expected, nothing exceptional. And the pizza was not my favorite. They are going for the "gourmet", but I found the pizza rather whimpy and burnt. Not a bad place to stop if you need a bite to eat, but not worth seeking out.

Stopped by for lunch and had some excellent beers on draft The pizza was also quite good. Four 4 oz flights for $12 seemed pretty reasonable and provided a way to taste a broad selection without getting snockered.

One of my favorite places to enjoy a top quality beer. The draft (14 taps) list is always varied and interesting, with local,out of state and international brews. The rotation is great and the quality is always exceptional.
The staff are really friendly and enthusiastic and always keen to help and suggest. Paradiso does regular tastings and tap takeovers with meet and greet sessions to boot. The pizzas are great and there is always a special one made to be paired with a beer. Great place for beer loving parents with pizza loving kids. A beer heaven in Old Town.

Much less crowded than the DC locations at lunchtime, at least on my visit. Like the others, always an intriguing tap list and a cask selection. And like the others, maybe a bit pricey for what it is. The pizza suits me well enough. Near the waterfront, it would be easy to make an evening of dinner here then a session at Bilbo Baggins.

Good beer selection on draft and bottle, and it always seems to have a cask on tap. If you have kids get there and order before 6 and they eat free :-)

I stopped in for lunch and a beer yesterday.
Located right in Old Town, Pizzeria Paradiso is an open and inviting space. The front of the restaurant has huge windows, creating a picturesque wintry scene upon which to gaze while enjoying a brew on a cold day.
When I mentioned that I was thinking about a stout, the server came back in less than a few minutes with two gratis samples of stouts from the draft list, which was very thoughtful.
The draft selection was decent enough. I was disappointed that their cask ale had run out. When I asked what the next cask would be, I was informed that there was no one currently working who could change the cask. I find this completely unacceptable. If you are employed as a bartender at an establishment that focuses on beer and always has a cask, you need to have the basic skills to change it out. Seriously...
My pizza was mediocre at best. Some of the other selections on the menu, like the antipasto, are much better than the pizza selections. The basil on my margherita pizza was scorched, which was a bummer. The crust just was not up to par, either.
The prices are OK, I suppose, though not great, but there wasnít really anything available on draft that I could get really excited about.
Regarding beer, the Old Town location is nowhere near as good as the Georgetown Pizzeria Paradiso.

Hmm itís probably my least favorite of the three Paradisos. Georgetown location has the best bar downstairs though cramped and crowded. Ambiance is great there. Tap list is great. Dupont location bar is super cramped to the point where if you donít have a seat, just forget about it. Bottle list at Dupont is the best of the three. The Old Town location has more space, the bar is much more relaxed, but the tap list is always the weakest of the three. All three locationsí tap lists are updated "semi-live" on their website eatyourpizza.com under the "Birre" tab. So you can see almost exactly what they will have before you go. Food menu is essentially the same as the other Paradisos: itís hearty Mediterranean with excellent antipasti and filling courses. If you are at the bar at any of the locations, ASK FOR THE OLIVES. If youíre drinking beer, it is a must palate savior and they are FREE and delicious. Donít forget about free olive dish. If you are attempting their Happy Hour on Tues-Wed 5-7PM where all drafts are half price, remember the Georgetown and Dupont locations will be mad packed. The Old Town location is more tolerable but at the expense of having their B-list kegs on tap.

They do get some good stuff on draft here -- was pleased to get Founders Breakfast Stout right from the keg. For a small place the bottle list is good. Old Town is great neighborhood, but it always presents challenges in terms of parking and its a bit of a hike from the metro. I havenít tried the food, but Iím rating it based on what Iíve heard from others -- so take my opinion there with a grain of salt.
