Pizzeria Paradiso Restaurant Review

: This cheerful pizza parlor serves some of the best pies this side of Naples. Try one of the house combinations --- the classic margherita, the rich quattro formaggi or the bottarga with its captivating topping of an egg, chopped parsley and freshly grated salted fish roe. The standout Atomica, as the name suggests, is nuclear-hot. If you’d prefer, there’s also a short sandwich list: house-baked rolls filled with cold cuts, pork or lamb. Check out the very complete beer menu, sign up for the regular beer dinners, and enjoy the expanded location. Also located at 3283 M St. NW, Washington, DC, 202-337-1245.
