I've been looking forward to this place since before I moved out here so I'm glad I finally got to check it out! At first it was packed (about 1 on a fri.) but it died down fairly quick after that. This place is LOUD, so forewarning on that.
The beer list is solid for sure and they have a huge bottle list as well, and don't forget the cask! The prices are reasonable for the area. I was used to paying no more than $5.50 for a beer but here it goes up to $7.50. I think mine was about $6 for a 16 oz serving.
The pizza was surprisingly good. Lighter than some but still with lots of flavor, which for lunch I was looking for.
I will go back for sure.

I've been to Pizzeria Paradiso a number of times and always find something interesting on tap. In July 2014 the restaurant had July PA Festival with nearly all IPAs on tap out of 13 taps. Waitstaff are knowledgeable but seem a bit rushed during busier times. Nothing much to speak of for atmosphere and it can be quite load during evenings. Free small plate of olives for munching is different.

I live in Alexandria and this is my go-to bar. What I like about Pizza Paradiso is their ever revolving tap selection. Other beer bars have standard year-round selections and rotate some of their taps. Paradiso rotates all of their taps so that each time I go, there is a completely different tap menu. They sometimes do themes depending on season or have tap takeovers.
Also very kid friendly if you want table service, and there is an expanded bar area where they have good happy hour specials.
I personally prefer this to other the Alexandria beer bar, Rustico, mainly because the food is better and also it is easier to get a seat and more conveniently located in the heart of Old Town (so I can walk/stumble home).
