After lunch at Ping Pong as well as a stroll through African Art Vicky and I finished the day (and weekend) having dinner with our mutual friends Ryan and Sarah. We have not seen them in quite some time and it was good to catch up. As couples I guess we think alike because both parties agreed that a 12′ pizza and salad would be split equally between males and females. The best part is the opportunity to swap slices! Although it makes no difference in quantity, in terms of variety, it is like 2 for the price of one. We had a nice dinner, nice catching up, and left with our stomachs full.
Address: 3282 M Street Northwest Washington, DC 20007
Meal At A Glance:
What type of meal was it? Dinner
Itemized Bill: $17 pp Bosco Pizza, Siciliana Pizza, Insalata Italiana, Insalata Paradiso
Quality: * * * * Vicky makes a fine pizza and we’ve had pizza in Italy, so I tend to be harsh on this matter, but I have to say Pizzeria Paradiso lives up to the name. They had a wide variety of pizza toppings with various ingredients.
Price:$$ In terms of what a dinner will usually cost you, splitting a 12′ pizza (and delicious pizza at that) as well as a salad is a great deal for two people looking to dine out but not overdue it.
Service: We interacted with at least 3 different waiters, but overall no complaints in this department.
Interior: Good blend between the bustling pizzeria environment one might expect and the level of privacy to make for an intimate dinner setting
Alcohol: Did not partake though there was a full bar and drinks menu with an extensive beer menu.
Location: In the heart of Georgetown, which is not particularly metro accessible and generally can be tough to find parking in, but we had no problems this time around.
Note: As a friend of mine pointed out, there are other locations in the area, specifically:
2003 P Street NW, Washington DC
124 King Street, Alexandria VA
Miscellaneous: They don’t take reservations or seat you until your entire party has arrived. Dinner rush fills all tables quickly even on a Sunday night.
Free: Free olives brought to the table upon seating.
Would we go back?: YES!
