go there only if you like "Neapolitan" pizza, meaning very thick and soft compared to Northern Italian pizza which is thin and crispy. Toppings very American, not really authentic Italian. But placed is liked by many locals ......

A very good option for a family lunch or dinner as a rest stop while touring Georgetown. Excellent pizza and countless options of artisanal beers topped with a friendly staff.

This is the best pizza I’ve had in DC so far, and I’ve tried most of the highly rated ones on TA. The place is pretty cool, located at the far western end of M Street in Georgetown. There’s a full bar and I think...More

I've been there a couple times now. The pizza, overall, is more than fair, although not fantastic. That said, my girlfriend who is gluten intolerant tells me this it the best gluten-free crust she's ever had. They have a huge beer selection, but they are...More

Great stop for dinner. Craving pizza and a beer (or two) and enjoyed immensely. Ate at the bar downstairs. Helpful and knowledgeable bartender provided great guidance on the beer and the Macellaio 9” pizza was delicious.
