What a great place this is! Looks like a smallish place when you arrive but it's actually huge, and probably needs to be with pizza this good! Having been to Chicago, I've experienced the real deal deep dish pizza, but I have to say that Pi's is better! It all comes down to ingredients, and their marinara sauce is so nice and chunky, which I prefer. The crust is so good too, they use cornmeal in their dough which makes it a little lighter, but with extra crispy edges, lovely!

The service was ace too, really friendly staff. Also had a great selection of craft beers to choose from, making it even better. If wine is your thing, there are more than enough choices for every palate.

So if you're in DC, and you want a really good pizza, look no further!

You can personalize your pizza here. My husband and I shared a small deep dish pizza. Should have gotten a large! However, if you are a cheese lover, I would suggest that you order extra cheese as the cheese was stingy. Very fresh and tasty pizza sauce.
Service was very good.

Perfect for a quick late lunch and a cold beer after touring about the city. Thin crust or deep dish pizzas. Interesting toppings. And vegan and gluten-free options.

Delicious pizza. We really enjoyed our dinner. Lots of tasty combinations for a thin crust and deep dish. Highly recommend. Great family dining option.

We went here on our weekend trip to DC, and was so pleasently suprised at their pizzas. They are a little like the Chicago Style deep dish pizza's (that I've only ever had in Chicago), but not much like anything else. They make them a little backwards, with chesse in the bottom, then toppings and then delicious tomato sauce on top.

As we were only there for to days, we didn't have time to come back, so never tried anything but the deep dish. They do have other kinds as well, that other guests seemed to enjoy.

Service was very friendly and the setting itself is quite unique. May be a little noisy for some people, but if you feel that way, ask for a table in the back, where they have a second floor that's a little more secluded.
