“Pizza & Beer!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Ideally located for Hotel Palomar or Dupont Circle.

If you want a really nice pizza and a great beer this is the place to go!

Place was buzzing when we arrived but they quickly found us a table. Great atmosphere in the place. Our waitress was excellent.

As the name suggests pizza is their thing and that is all the do. They come in 2 sizes - from memory it's 8 or 12 inches. A wide selection of toppings are available so something to suit everyone. Service is fairly quick and the pizzas were delicious.

Beer - wow, what a choice. If you like beer this is the place for you. A fantastic selection of both local and international. Our server had a great knowledge of what was on offer and guided us towards a great choice.

“Great pizza”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

Nice, neighborhood feel. Pizza was great crust, just doughy enough but dry, crisp bottom. Wood fired oven did great job. Craft beers were good too. Service was pretty good, not great, but it was busy. Didnt take long to get the pizza once ordered. Personal and sharing sizes. Would definitely go back.

“friendly staff, great stop for pizza and beer”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Walked over for dinner after buying some books at Kramerbooks in Dupont Circle. We made sure to get there early because we heard that 1. They do not take reservations, and 2. it got crowded early (and it was true - there were people waiting by the time we left and it was a TUESDAY). We were seated quickly by a very pleasant waitress. The beer selection is very impressive. I told the waitress the type of beer that I was interested in and she made a very good selection for me. The pizzas were excellent; the ingredients seemed very fresh. A really good experience overall, and I would definitely return again.

“Excellent choice and value”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This is a highly popular venue so you need to be prepared to stand in line. We delayed our meal to ensure the delay was short. Service was attentive and helpful; our food arrived quickly but there was no compromise on freshness or quality. The range of pizzas and side dishes was impressive: there was also a very good selection of wines at very reasonable prices. I would have liked a little more light to eat by but otherwise this was a great eating experience.
