I really liked everything about this place! There was a short wait for a table, but there is a bar for the waiting and it gave an ample opportunity to have something good to drink and people watch. The craft beer selection is extensive and offers enough to make all in your party happy; they even had my favorite French cider (or "cidre), which is kind of hard to come by, so that was the beginning of an impressive experience for me. The menu offers plenty of options: antipasto, apps, salads, pizza, etc. The chicken sausage/veggie pizza (Paesana) I chose was EXCELLENT. A friend at the table got the seafood pizza with mussels (di Mare) and she was thrilled. I also loved the olives that they bring to the table at the beginning, I prefer that over the usual "bread and olive oil" that comes at the beginning of most upscale pizzeria experiences. The service was excellent, and even though it was crowded and there was a line of folks waiting for tables, we were not rushed and the waiter was as gracious as could be. it was a wonderful mix of patrons: families, couples, groups of friends, all types of folks out for a lovely evening of good food near DuPont Circle. I will definitely return!

Stumbled across this place while looking for lunch. They have a nice selection of pizza and panini. The panini Nonna is good and the Quattro formaggi is really good! Service is kind of slow

Staying at the Kimpton down the street, I was advised to visit this restaurant. My brother and sister-in-law love one of the bartenders. He is good at picking something for you to try and he loves his job. Pizza was delicious. Opened late too!

Great artisan style pizza with a properly made crust that is chewy and flavorful and quality toppings. An outstanding collection of bottled beers, but lacking in a good variety of the beers on tap. This is what a modern pizzeria should be like.

By far, the best gluten free pizza I've ever had! An amazing find. Get the pizza margerita. It's delicious!
