Great place to grab a very good pizza before a Caps game. My son and I went and enjoyed it. I will say the eggplant appetizer which was really yummy, was small. The prices were a tad high, but given the area, that's pretty much everywhere.

There was a pizza place that was so crowded around the corner and I was glad I saw this one on yelp. We got seated right away. Got a couple of tasty beers. I got a pepperoni personal pizza (hence grease) and my boyfriend got a gorgonzola and caramelized onion pizza. Both were really good a little too much pizza... More

We were desperate seeking an available table to have lunch in downtown DC. We stumbled into Ella's and we gave it a go. Place is midway into a proper restaurant and a fast track joint. So nothing special on that front. Pizzas took a rather longtime to come considering place was only half full. The pizzas were not special either.... More

Pizza preference is subjective, but the neat thing about Ella's is they can prepare it different number of ways. We go periodically, and on each occasion we have had very good to excellent meals. The staff is very accommodating and nothing seems to be a problem.

Directly across the street from the National Portrait Gallery, this local wood fired pizza place was a great find. Non-chain, tasty food, nice little bar, reasonable cost for downtown DC. Will go back

A casual place with very good pizza, a solid wine list, and adequate salads. The pizza crust is great. I would definitely go back.

The food here was good, but nothing special. And for that reason I would say it's overpriced. I was looking for a really good pizza place, we decided to try here, and wasn't impressed. The portions were too small for their price. It wasn't bad, but definitely not the best and not worth the price. Wouldn't come here again.

We popped in here with our 2 young kids as a walk-in. Luckily, we visited in the off-season, but probably worth booking when in peak tourist season. Food was great, pizza's mainly, with a couple of beers for the grown-ups. Reasonably priced. Our servers were great, friendly and attentive. Will definitely com back when next in town.

The good things about this place are definitively the wood fired oven and the service. Very friendly and speedy although it was not too busy when we ate here. The sauce is good and not sweat, arugula fresh, great ham and decent mozerella (no bufela I fear). The pizza itself is thin crusted and crispy and they all look exactly... More

We travel to DC fairly often and tend to stay near the Penn Quarter/Chinatown area. Given we're from the Midwest and travel frequently to Chicago, we seek to compare various pizza establishments. We stumbled upon Ella's in our quest for pizza. My wife and I shared a pepperoni and cheese pizza which was a bit of a challenge in that... More
