We very much enjoyed our dinner at Ella's. We ordered 1 romaine lettuce salad and they very nicely split the salad onto 2 plates. The roasted red pepper creamy dressing was very good and makes for a nice salad. We each ordered a pizza - one size only - and the pizza was very good. Thin crust, crispy and sauce... More

The pizza was great, albeit small. We were surprised they only came in one size especially since a plain personal pizza was $12. It was very good pizza and the kids loved it. The wine list was also a bit on the pricey side but very good. Would definitely go back if in town.

The waiter that was the best waiter I ever had no longer works there ( sad ) but even without him, the service and food was amazing! I've never liked a pizza so much! We ate there 3 times during our week trip!

We had great service from Eddie, who was able to move our reservation up an hour for 11 people. He was super nice and very personable on the phone and in person when we arrived. Tanisha (we think) was our server and did a tremendous job. We could not have been more impressed with her customer service and wonderful personality!... More

My favorite Pizza place. Make a reservation if you don't want to wait. Specials are always that, they never disappoint.

Ok, so this area is one of my least favorite in DC, and it is dominated by either chain restaurants or expensive tapas places. Ella's provides an good option that is neither chain nor expensive, directly across from the museums. For that reason alone I would go back. Our pizzas were good, although nothing to write home about. Our server... More

Ella's has a casual layout and decor, but serves pizza at premium prices. I was not very impressed by the pizzas. They are thin with crispy crusts like crackers and don't have much sauce and cheese. It's $13.50 for a pizza with one topping, and a whole pizza is barely enough food for one person. Ella's has a large beer... More

After hearing Ella's makes GF pizza, I knew I had to stop. I stopped by for lunch on a Saturday and was immediately seated. Business was a little slow and I felt like I could take my time. The pizza itself was a little lackluster (the crust was kind of hard); the homemade lemonade was tart and delicious (and refills... More

We just wanted a quick lunch. We were seated right away. We shared the romaine salad with red roasted pepper dressing. It was so fresh and delicious. We also shared a margherita pizza. The crust was thin and crisp. The service was good as well.
