vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.75 | selection: 5 | food: 4.75

Atmosphere: A fairly small place, a bit tight but nice. Low lighting, booths and a small bar.

Quality: Everything was on target.

Service: Fun waiter made us feel welcome even coming in close to closing. Very laid back, offered samples of anything we wanted to taste.

Selection: Tons of bottles, and an interesting 12 tap selection, a mix of American and other beers.

Food: Great pizza.

Highly recommended

Pizza and beer is as American as Washinton DC, and what better way to enjoy my first lunch in the District of Columbia in 15 years than pizza and beer? It took me and my brother less than 20 minutes to walk here from the White House, and when we made it, I was ready for a beer or two.

Luckily, Pizzeria Paradiso does that beer thing well. Sitting in a small, rustic interior, and a small bar area where the two of us grabbed seats, the draft menu is easy to spot and mixes in some intriguing options. Freigeist, Del Borgo, Founders, DC Brau, Atlas, and Port City were among the drafts, plus a cask offering, and if that isn't enough, somewhere around 200 bottles and offering brands like Alvine, Against the Grain, Grimm, Omnipollo, Brewers' Art, La Cotta, and Hanssens. Pairing with the beer is a wide arsenal of beer glassware, an underappreciated art stateside.

The focaccia we had came out quick and got me in craving our custom pepperoni, sausage, and garlic pizza. Both of us found the pizza to be excellent. Having food come out quick as well as quick and knowledgeable drink service at the bar got my respect for Pizzeria Paradiso. After two beer, pizza, and focaccia, it was a long yet happy walk south to the Lincoln Memorial. It was worth the extended walk.

Great bottle list, a bit pricey, but highest quality. good selection of taps topped off with happy hour pricing. Pizza was wonderful, Must stop if in the area.
