Pizzeria Paradiso G'town never again. Now what?

I'm going to re-post this since my post earlier this morning was too much about service and not about the food, and it was removed. I have eaten at Pizzeria Paradiso many times. I have found the service to be both surly, and the pizzas very dry. I put up with this since there are very few pizza choices in Georgetown. Last night was the final straw when they wouldn't seat my husband in a nearly empty restaurant because I was a few minutes behind him ( I was literally next door making a purchase, but this did not matter to them). When he was seated, it was at an awkward table next to a bus stand. There was only one other table seated in the entire restaurant. Then he was ignored. So we left. Where do I go for pizza in Georgetown? I love pizza before a movie....

  1. I thought the post was fine. After food, I consider service to be second in consideration of a place (ambiance a distant fourth, price being third). I think most places that go south do so b/c of either food or service.

    Would you consider seeing movies elsewhere and then being open to more pizza places that way?

      I concur. I used to get good pizza's there but my recent visits were disapppointing (bland). Additionally, the waiter never checked on us or offered to refill our drinks.

        The Atomica at PP is a good antidote to bland pizza syndrome. One of the area's finest pizzas.
