How much is the two for tuesdays deal?


LOL. I can't believe I forgot the price. It's $50. Post Updated.


the last time i went, it was tuesday, but being underage my date and i couldnt do the wine thing, so we were able to get the 'two for tuesdays' deal without the wine for something like $24 total. definitely worth it.


I've also been diappointed in their sandwiches, and it's definitely not ciabatta bread they're using... or at least, not a very good one. A proper ciabatta bread is chewier and more rustic. And I don't think their panini has ever arrived grilled.

But just so I'm not entirely negative, I really enjoy the pizza. I love that they offer whole wheat crusts.


The Happy Hour food includes selected half pizzas at half price. It was a good way to get the BEST pizza and have some money left over. I am excited to check out the new Georgetown bar.


So, ahem, is it better then 2Amy's???




You ever been to Vace?


Yes. I do like it as well, but it's a completely different kind of pizza.


I agree -- Vace is totally different pizza. I actually don't like their pizza, but the homemade pasta is pretty good.


Vace's pizza has worn a bit thin in my opinion. I love the homemade pastas but the pizzas at Paradiso and 2Amys taste better and stay warmer longer. I find that after the 10-minute walk home from Vace, the pizza is not all that fresh while after the 10-minute car ride from 2Amys, the pizzas are fine.

As far as appetizers go, I highly recommend the panzanella salad: a variety of diced veggies with oil and balsamic over two well toasted pieces of panzanella. It actually inspired me to attempt my own low-rent version at home. And anyway, it's important to have a salad if you're going for the all-out decadence of the Bottarga.

I live in North Carolina but when I come to DC, I love eating at Pizza Paradiso! I haven't yet eaten at 2 Amy's, but I love the thin crust made in the wood burning oven and the tomato base is the best I can remember anywhere - it tastes super fresh and moist without making the crust soggy. I'm vegan, and Pizza Paradiso offers caseine-free vegan cheese.


Are you nuts? Paradiso is hands-down the best pizza in town. It's truly sublime. (No, I don't work there.)


I find Pizza Paradiso's pizza to be superior to all others. Belive it or not, it's actually better than even highly recommended NYC pizzarias and in Italy itself. I've eaten at supposedly great pizza places in Naples, Italy and cannot say it beat Pizza Paradiso. (I don't work there either but have been going since they opened in Dupont)
