I think I just had different expectations about the kind of service to expect. If you don't know this, you order and purchase your food at the counter, take your number and wait for it to be brought to you. I had trouble with the...More

I loved the vibe of this restaurant! Super casual but contemporary decor. The patio is lovely, the pizza is great and the service is efficient and bare bones friendly!

Good, quasi-self-service place to get a decent, if a little pricey, meal before a performance at the Kennedy Center. Expect it to be crowded an hour or so before show time. Pretty fast food delivery. Daily specials are interesting with generous portions. Nice salads. Okay...More

Thanks for the kind words. While we don't have a specific kids menu, you can always get a plain cheese or pepperoni pizza. Might be a good idea if we mention it on the menu. Thanks for the feedback! Brian

Thanks for joining us and sharing your thoughts.Our pizza is a traditional Neapolitan style, in a wood oven that averages 600 degrees. Neapolitan pizzas tend to be a bit wetter than a traditional American pizza. I am sorry you did not enjoy it. Regards, Brian
