PIZZERIA PARADISO

The original Pizzeria Paradiso, located on the second floor of a small townhouse in Dupont Circle, opened its doors in November 1991. The restaurant received immediate critical acclaim and has since been consistently ranked among the finest restaurants in Washington, DC. This location was upgraded in 2009, and is now located at 2003 P Street. A second location, in historic Georgetown, opened in December 2002. Our third restaurant, located at 124 King St in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, was opened in October, 2010.

Political Pizzas & Pours

More women are running in the 2018 midterms than in any election in American history and many candidates are celebrating ‘firsts' with their candidacy. Every week in October we are featuring pizza + beer pairings honoring a candidate and her home state. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the League of Women Voters.
