Stopped in on a Saturday night during a recent visit. We got in before it got too crowded, there was a 45 minute wait to be seated when we left.
The atmosphere was a standard pizza/ beer bar decor. As with most places in Old Town Alexandria the eating area was small with tables very close and the bar area was very small.
The beer selection was very good, a nice variety of 14 beers on tap and 1 on cask. Very good bottle selection located in a very large cooler behind the bar. Beer prices are a little pricy which follows the Old Town price range.
The bartender was very friendly, has great beer knowledge and has a very strong passion for beer. He offered great suggestions and helped the beer rookies with their selections. Our waitress was very friendly, checked with us frequently and had good beer knowledge. She was able to describe items on the menu well and delivered beer, food very quickly.
The food selection provided a very nice variety of pizza, salads, appetizers and fresh baked bread. We selected the Atomica pizza which was excellent and splurged on a very nice desert "Salame di Cioccolato".
Overall our experience was great, the prices are reasonable for the Old Town area. I highly recommend the Pizzeria Paradiso if your looking for good beer and a great pizza.

This is a very pleasant pizza/ brew pub on King street. An easy walk from the King Street Metro station.
Staff are friendly and attentive - the food (pizza etc) are really good and the prices are reasonable.

Solid selection of draft and bottled beers - easily the best craft and imported beer place in Old Towne Alexandria.
Consistently good - prices are reasonable - though as previous reviewer noted - happy hour prices only apply to those at the bar - those dining at the tables will pay full fare.

Could be the best craft beer place on King Street in Old Town. My only warning - Happy Hour applies only If you are sitting/standing in the bar area. Eat and order in the dining area, and it's full price.

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).
