This quickly became a favorite spot of mine for their excellent brick-fired pizza and the eclectic beer selection. The Atomoica and the Siciliana pizzas are two favorites, but I've never had a bad slice at Paradiso. Head downstairs to the Birreria for a beer or two during happy hour (5-7 M-Th), and grab a pie to-go for a leisurely stroll... More

I hate to be critical of my beloved country but chains like Pizza Hut, Dominos and Papa John's couldn't be further from authentic. After being in Italy for 7 years, you learn what real pizza is. Then coming home is somewhat lack-luster when looking for real pizza...until now! This place is authentic. Hands down. Prices aren't Italian (6-8 Euros a... More

Casual pizzeria with friendly service and nice atmosphere. Ordered the paradiso with pepperoni and it was good. However, there was barely any pepperoni on the pie. Defintely overpriced for what you get.

Stoped by while my wife and I were doing shopping in Georgetown for dinner. It is very popular so we had to wait 10-15 min as we had no booked. The Pizza was good and we enjoyed our time here. As above it can be noise when busy but that was to be expected.

Solid tasty real Italian pizza and appetizers (didn't try mains). Great desserts too but a bit much on the tiny side. Appropriate price considering you're right in Georgetown's high street. (Shouldn't charge for bread though...). Friendly service, try to aim for 1st floor not the even noisier basement! We were all pleased including the hungry teens!

They use raw, canned tomatoes, mushed up and call it "sauce?" The pizzas look more like what you would see in Italy, meaning a thin, bubbly crust with some charring, tender yet crispy. However, the flavor of the crust is lacking and the toppings, while a bit sparse, like the Italian model, also lack flavor. The toppings also just slide... More

Stopped for lunch while shopping in Georgetown. Had the pizza with pepperoni, sausage...a couple other toppings. Crust was very good, toppings good. Perfect amount of cheese. This pizza was just the way I like it...enjoyed it very much. Service was decent.

Stopped in for dinner for 6 (3 adults 3 teens) on a Saturday night. Place was crowded, they don't take reservations. The hostess looked annoyed at the size of our party which instantly made me wonder about the place; I mean isn't serving people how they make money? Then she wouldn't tell us how long for a table. Finally she... More

We visited this restaurant late in the evening and put our name in and were told it would be 45 minutes. We came back after 30 mins and waited for about another 20 mins. The hostess was extremely disorganized and almost gave our table away to someone down the list. We pointed it out and got our table. The restaurant... More
