Wood-fired Neapolitan pies make up the bulk of the menu at Pizzeria Paradiso, which fills daily with hungry diners seeking some of the city’s finest pizza.
The crust is crispy yet chewy, and the topping selection is vast, with a variety of vegetable toppings not found at other pizza places, including eggplant, roasted garlic, zucchini, potatoes, pine nuts, and capers.
The bottled beer selection is primarily microbrews; the draft choice is a Baltimore-brewed Extra Special Bitter.
