Founded in 1991, Pizzeria Paradiso serves what many consider the best pizza in the city. Now one of three regional locations, this lively, no-frills flagship is furnished with hardwood floors, simple wooden chairs, and a 650-degree oak-burning oven used to create crust that's both crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. The menu includes Neapolitan-style classics like the margherita as well as more unusual options such as the bottarga (cured fish roe) pizza with egg, garlic, parsley, and Parmesan. The restaurant is also known for its comprehensive beer list, which includes 200 bottles and 12 brews on tap.

Insider Tip:

Request a table overlooking the kitchen so you can watch the chefs pull freshly baked pizzas from the huge stone oven.
