Nice place in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Friendly staff, great locals. of course, the usual well-chosen beer list from Greg Jasgur. This one has a better bar space that the Dupont location, but not quite as good as the Georgetown location. Definitely the top beer location in Alexandria,, and possibly in Virginia.

A nice, open place in Old Town, though it can be very loud when they are busy; there is nothing to absorb the sound. The pizzas are good, and the choices varied, though the crust is a bit brittle. The beer selection is solid, and rotates regularly. Service is great, with everyone being attentive and caring about your experience.

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.

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.

Spotty service knocks this down a few points. Visiting during Happy Hour it took about ten or fifteen minutes to get a beer. The food looked good but it was a little expensive ($17.95 for a large gourmet - in line with most other similar places).
The selection was impressive enough for me to stick around and give it a shot. A mixture of locals from Starr Hill, Olde Richmond, and Port City were complemented by a couple of Belgians. Overall I would check this place out. The biggest problem may be parking; if you can catch the Metro to Old Town and use the trolley instead.

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.

This is a pretty well placed restaurant located in downtown Old Town Alexandria. Parked a few blocks away, walked there. The place was packed - both the bar and the front part of the restaurant. Friends had a table so didnít have to wait through that mess.
Iíve just been here for happy hour, so I havenít had any of the food - I suspect itís as good as it looks. Beer selection was very nice, though both their beer menu and their board was woefully out of date (and neither matched) when I went there on Veterans Day.

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.
