Description: We opened Pizzeria Paradiso so we could make the kind of pizza we longed for but couldn’t find in the DC area; the kind of pizza where the crust was the most important part. To create that crust, we start with a wood-burning, domed, stone oven able to cook at a temperature of 650 degrees and above. Then we placed the oven at the heart of the restaurant so our guests would feel the warmth and comfort of its glow evocative of the warmth felt in a close friend’s home. Next, we developed a dough that would respond to our oven the way we dreamed. We let our dough rise slowly, work it by hand, lightly grace it with the finest quality toppings, finish it with extra virgin olive oil and cook it in our beloved oven.

If you are in Georgetown and looking for pizza , Pizzeria Paradiso is a great choice. This Little Gem is located in the heart of Georgetown’s Shops, Bars, and Restaurants (M and 33rd Street) Friendly staff and outstanding pizza.

go there only if you like "Neapolitan" pizza, meaning very thick and soft compared to Northern Italian pizza which is thin and crispy. Toppings very American, not really authentic Italian. But placed is liked by many locals ......

This is must after if visiting the Georgetown area. We had a few appetizers however they were eaten before I could take pictures of them. They both were delicious along with the pizza. Staff was very friendly and service was excellent even though they were extremely busy. Highly recommend and we will be back when in the area

A very good option for a family lunch or dinner as a rest stop while touring Georgetown. Excellent pizza and countless options of artisanal beers topped with a friendly staff.
