Pizzeria Paradiso-has been?

I've been going to Pizzeria Paradiso as long as it's been around, and it even figured in my choice of where I bought a condo. Yet I've been going less lately, and have been less happy with the product (and service, once always great) than before. I feared that opening a G-town branch would doom the original. But perhaps it's something else. Is it just me, or do others have any sense of what's happening at this place?

  1. Possible but I haven't been in a while. Your other options to get your fix is the G-town location (more space and HUGE beer list :D ) and Mia's pizza in Bethesda off of Cordell Ave. Mia's is also related to Paradiso. I like them just a tad better than Paradiso cuz the bread seems a bit different. Downer is they don't open until 11:30 and no free olives while you wait.

    1. I was at the Georgetown location a couple of weeks ago (I don't go as often as I would like), but I really enjoyed it. I love the beer selection too.

      1. I was at the Dupont location last week and my impression was that it isn't as good as it used to be.

        1. We used to live in DC. Last year, we visited and went to Paradiso in dupont. It was not as good, and we couldn't put our finger on it.

          Two Amys, however, was rockin.

          1. I don't know if it has gone downhill, but the last time I was there, the lovely looking pizza I oredered was shockingly tasteless. Truth is, though, I never thought it was all that to begin with. I have to second fudluvr's opinion about 2 Amy's -- in repeated comparisons, it always comes out ahead.
