Ok so this place was recommended when I inquired about "good pizza" as a native Manhattan girl. I love pizza but a trip to an old Pizza shop in Spanish Harlem (Ray's Pizza) left me feeling extra picky about where to get pizza upon my return to the Captial District. I've been here 3 times since being told about it... More

We were a group of five eating before a basketball game. The place is quite popular so there's a bit of a line a could be waiting for a table. We did fine in both areas. Pizza was good and inexpensive by my count. Two pieces and a medium drink for $7.50. Liked it!

I was in town for business and checked the reviews on TripAdvisor for local pizza shops. The food rated good so I placed and order for delivery. The delivery was right on time and the food was good, no complaints.

We recently purchased a half tray of Eggplant Parm. It was a generous portion for the price and we enjoyed every meal from this tray. Tender and delicious.

We stop here before every devils game. Reasonably priced and consistently good quality. Wings are are crispy and they do not skimp on the sauce.
