I live near the original Del Ray Pizzeria, which is good. DRP Belle Haven is their second location. The pizza is good, and they have other options on the menu as well. Lots of beer on the menu too. DRP Belle Haven has nice outdoor seating, and there's a custard spot next door.

Loved this place. Great local place to eat and drink. Best pizza I've had in a long time. Interesting beers, appealing to European tastes and regular events - such as beer tasting. Only downside - it's small and very popular so you can't book in advance. There's a bar and TV which shows sports channels. Can get a bit noisy when there's a big game on, but I think that adds to the atmosphere. No place to park? In the evenings there are some sort of council offices next door with a really big car park. Not a valid complaint Wile-E-One, or maybe you don't want to walk more than 25 yards? The frozen custard place is next door and I'm told they have the best frozen custard in DC.

Wow. We were impressed with the quality, taste, and freshness. A delightful new and award-winning neighborhood place for casual dining. Saw numerous families with small children as well as couples. A busy place with a steady stream of diners.

We ordered pizzas and children's sliders with fries. We chose the pizza with peppers, mushrooms, spinach, onions and substituted pepperoni for the arugula. Other tablemates chose another vegetarian pizza. Both were delicious. The best pizza we have had in years (we've tried many different cities and places). Not too much sauce as some pizzerias are prone. Fabulously-fresh vegetables. Perfect crust.

Now the children loved their sliders. The French fries were fresh and perfect. I tasted a couple and am not usually a French fry fan, but I loved these.

Yes, you may need to wait for a table but it is worth the wait. I should add that the menu features many breakfast items as well as pizza with eggs which we passed up.

Called in for carryout on Saturday night and pizza would be ready in 15-20 minutes. So far, so good. Arrived at DRP and no place to park, plus it's packed inside (OK, it is Saturday night). Told as I entered that pizza pickups are at the bar - which is, of course, absolutely packed. Bar tender was very efficient though, and after a couple minutes wait got around to me. Pickup was then relatively fast. The 12" pan crust (only size available) had a nice, moderately light and soft crust, but the edge took up almost have the pizza. Toppings on the "Butcher Block" (all meat) were tasty, though a bit meager. So, average taste, below average hassle to pickup and quantity of toppings.

We live in the neighborhood and have put off visiting because of the crowded parking lot. We waited to go on a weekday at lunch. The pizza was good, service was prompt (of course at 1 on a weekday you would hope so). Not really a lot of seating space inside so glad they have the patio for warmer weather.
Glad to have them in the neighborhood but will still avoid going when they are too crowded- no pizza is worth the wait some neighbors reported.
