I go here often, I thought maybe I should give them a review.

If I had to sum it up in one sentence, I would say: This is a very solid place to get some great beer on tap and in bottles, with great food, cool bartenders, and a good overall atmosphere.
*Just a tip, the beers on tap are very affordable Tuesday and Wednesday 5-7pm when they are all half price.

The guys at both Paradiso locations in DC (They just opened one in Old Town Alexandria I haven't been to) do a great job or themeing, mixing up, and overall keeping the quality high with their beers on tap. My one complaint there is that the beers all come out the same temperature, which for something like Founder's Breakfast Stout (when served way too cold) is not ideal. You can always count on at least 3-5 beers on tap at this or the other location that you are interested in or really like already.

Their bottle selection is really awesome at both places. Though expensive, they seem to have rare stuff you can't find at most or all other area bars, especially for me in the Three Floyds department. Awesome to be able to sit down and order off the menu Blackheart, Robert the Bruce, or whatever else. Also some things they have that are interesting include Cascade, Captain Lawrence, BFM, Mikkeller, etc. A solid bottle selection, they also have interesting stuff on the list and it comes out tasting right.

The food is great especially with beer. I love their thin crust, 'old country' style pizza and other Italian fare, and even the meat and cheese offerings are nice.

The bar is awesome when its not crowded cause you can really mingle with the bartenders who are very knowledgable and cool, but when corwded the place is just too small to hold everyone. Just got to get there early and hold your seats at the bar! The servers do what they can to get to you but when tons of people are trying to get stuff at a somewhat small bar, they gloss over sometimes.

Overall, a great place and one of my favorite bars in DC easily.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat and some good beer on a weekday. Sat at the bar.

Clean and upscale setting. Nothing pretentious, just nicely done. Good music. When I sat down they gave a small bowl of fancy olives. Quite tasty. Nice touch.

Bartender was attentive and knowledgeable. Not overly friendly, but that was fine.

I ordered a pizza. It came quite quickly. Very tasty.

Star of this show is the beer [as it should be]. Bottled beer menu is about 12 pages. Also had about 12 beers on tap. 1 cask ale was available, which is always impressive.

Overall, a very nice place to stop in for a bite to eat and some good beer.
