Pretty standard restaurant vibe. Every employee i dealt with was extremely friendly and helpful. Decent sized tap list with great variety. Large bottle list. Food is solid. Prices are very high but not necessarily exhorbiant for the area. Worth a stop if you’re in Old Town.

Good pizza, okay selection of drafts, huge bottle list, very much DC pricing, which is not a value. Okay for a stop, but not worth going out of your way

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 wasn’t 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.
