Pleasantly Surprised

I thought this was just another pizza place, but I was genuinely impressed with the quality and taste of the pizza. The "pucks" colas are a bit strange, but the pizza is worth going back for.

I stumbled upon this gem while taking a walk up Clarendon Blvd. It is very close to the Clarendon Metro Station. OMG--how did I not know about this place! I had the lunch special, which is two pieces of pizza and a fountain drink or ice tea for $6.75 for cheese slices, a little more for specialty slices (I had... More

Love the veggie pizza with the crispy eggplant. Pete's has a unique vegetarian pizza, they also have vegan cheese which is nice. Haven't been there since last fall. It is a little pricey though.

It took my husband and I ages to get around to trying Pete's, and we're sorry for the oversight! Pete's offers amazingly crisply, thin crust pizzas with lots of creative toppings to choose from. Delivery in Arlington is quick, and the Panini sandwich we recently ordered was monumental in both size and taste.

This is the worst restaurant in this area great foodie area. Food: One of our pizzas was served old, reheated, stale. The other pizza had zero flavor, nothing at all. Like eating water. I have never experienced anything like that in this area before. Service: worst service. The manager was an as***** to his staff in front of the public.... More

Pete's is a busy place located on the main street in Clarendon so it's a little tough to find a place to park depending on the time of day. It's a good place for kids & parents who want a quick pizza. It's more expensive than the regular pizzas. We wanted to try this as it's known for it's thin... More

This used to be a pretty decent and friendly place to get pizza, and it was always crowded. Now, the quality is inconsistent (very difficult to chew, sometimes), the customer service is lacking (uninterested and, sometimes, rude), and there are very few people there. as far as I can tell. Oh well.

Having grown up with authentic New Haven style Pizza, I was pleasantly surprised to find how true to taste Pete's is. We ordered the largest size which was a generous portion and reasonably priced. Got eggplant on top which was too overcooked. Go for just plain and simple cheese if you can- the pizza is good enough that you don't... More

Visited Pete's with a newly purchased Groupon, guess that was the signal to serve us a $26 large pizza that had about $0.75 worth of toppings. My wife had soup and salad; tasted very good she said, I've never seen such small portions served personally. Back to the pizza, for good measure they made it so hot and the crust... More

Pete's New Haven next to the Clarendon metro couldn't be in a better location. I have tried 5 different fresh pies and all are delicious. The salad with the fried goat cheese is absolutely incredible! The establishment is very basic and modern, it's not very cozy or rustic considering. To be honest, the food is great and the service is... More
