The original Pizzeria Paradiso, located on the second floor of a small townhouse in Dupont Circle, opened its doors in November 1991. The restaurant received immediate critical acclaim and has consistently been ranked among the best dining in Washington, DC.

Founded on the spirit of laughter, Pizzeria Paradiso evokes the warmth one feels in the home of a close friend. Founder and Chef/Owner Ruth Gresser’s vision of Pizzeria Paradiso during its formation was of her standing near the kitchen laughing with her co-workers. The notion of creating a nice, respectful and good place to work is the bedrock of Pizzeria Paradiso, and still, guides the staff and influences our customers. At Pizzeria Paradiso, the people in our community change but the feeling our community creates remains true to Founder Ruth Gresser’s vision. Come enjoy with us!
