If gourmet pizza is what you're after, look no further than this new business. The fresh addition, called Paisano's Pizza, is located at 1060 Brentwood Rd. NE. in the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center.
This is the second DC location for the gourmet pizza delivery chain, which has locations in Northern Virginia, Maryland and Tennessee.
"From our dough to our pizza sauce to our pasta, we make almost everything that we deliver to your home or office fresh and from scratch daily," says the company's website.
On the menu, look for a variety of sandwiches, pasta, pizza, wings and more. Try one of the chain's New York-style gourmet pizzas like the bacon cheeseburger, Greek or Paisano's Supreme: a pie loaded with pepperoni, sausage, ham, meatballs, onions, mushrooms and green peppers.
Craving dessert? Offerings include classic tiramisu, cannolis and zeppoles: fried fresh dough topped with powdered sugar and served with a side of raspberry sauce. (You can view the full dinner and dessert menus here.)
With a 3.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp so far, Paisano's Pizza is in its earliest days.
"I ordered delivery and my order came within a timely manner," said Shawn L., one of the first Yelpers to write a review. "My order wasn't correct, but when i called they fixed it with no problem. I will definitely be ordering again."
"Paisano's is bright and clean with friendly staff," added Jasmine H. "There were quite a few customers when I came. I ordered a large pepperoni pizza and hot wings. The pizza was pretty standard with decent crust. The hot wings actually had a kick and were pretty good. Be sure to take advantage of their lunch specials and coupons when you order online!"
Paisano's Pizza is open from 11 a.m.–10 p.m. Sundays–Thursdays and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
