Pizzeria Paradiso Restaurant Review

: This location of Pizzeria Paradiso is very large, has an up-front liquor bar, two dining rooms, and a downstairs private room called Birreria Paradiso, yet finding seating is a challenge. There's something potent about the PP appeal: first-rate toppings, terrific pizza dough and daring desserts. After starting with a basket of freshly made panini, good bread when dunked into olive oil and sprinkled with grated Parmesan, a special, seasonal salad may include asparagus and wild mushrooms. As for pizza, a special pie can be dressed with ricotta and thinly sliced red onions. Too much bread may nix desserts, but think ahead to the chocolate salami, a nut-studded chocolate roll.
