This place is the real thing. Pizza like you get in New Haven, around the corner from Worcester Square, without the 2 hour wait. Crispy thin crust pizza with any kind of topping your heart desires. Staff friendly, pizza and drinks moderately priced, kids are welcome. Who could ask for anything more? But wait, there is more: during slow seasons... More

I'm stilling trying to figure out why some of my friends actually like this place. I tried one of their pizzas a month or so ago...needless to say, it was overdone (crust was as crisp as a hard wood floor) and the cheese and toppings were tasteless. I know it's a bit far, but next time, I think I'd rather... More

We go there once a month for the Pizza and environment. Great, hot pizza and the best Cesar Salad on the planet. Moderately priced but worth it. Really nice people. Parking can be kind of a drag, however.... but it is worth it.

Perhaps the sidewalk dining would be nice in the spring but we tried eating in the restaurant on a chilly fall evening and the dining room experience didn't really thrill us. Would work well for a family with small children (tasty food without worrying about causing a ruckus) but we were a couple dining alone, expecting a more intimate atmosphere.... More

Thin crust pizza, served piping hot was quite good. Restaurant is typical pizza style establishment but on a larger scale. Crust was crispy, many varieties and/or toppings. No more expensive than any other non-chain pizza.

We tried Pete's and found the pizza to be very good with fresh, tasty, unusual ingredients. The crust was crispy and the toppings were certainly adequate. We found it to be a bit pricey at $19 for a 14' pie. With pizza prices coming down these days and all sorts of specials to be had from the chains, Pete's seemed... More

We ordered three kinds of vegetarian pizzas -- edge of the woods, the green and the arugula pizza. My daughter had a special request for goat cheese on the arugula pizza for which we were charged $6 extra (not warranted i think for the amount of cheese that was actually on the pizza) since they said it was a premium...

Pete's has the best pizza crust in DC: crisp on the bottom, chewy on the inside, though not nearly as good as in New Haven or Naples. The plain cheese pizza is OK. The tomato sauce is good, but the cheese is too much of a thick, solid layer. The veggie slices (which seem to change from day to day)... More

Sat outside, nice tables in the sun or shade. Quick service. Excellent food. Salad was small for the price, but I guess most come here for the pizza, which did not disappoint, thin and crispy!! Another member in our party had a pasta dish and they said that was excellent as well. You can't go wrong here.
