Excellent Pizza!

We had great service on our first visit and ordered the procuitto and fig pizza ( it was amazing!). The spring green salad was ok. The greens were a bit limp. I suggest ordering the wedge salad. Loved that the restaurant had Dolcezza gelato and sorbet, too! Will definitely be going back!

We come here a lot and the food is always terrific. Something for everyone, from pizza to dinner salads to great entrees. Sometimes hard to get a table, but the bar area is large and they serve food there if you can't wait.

I met a friend for lunch at this restaurant and had a great experience. My friend ordered the meat pizza, and I got the lamb sandwich. The pizza was super thin crust and neither skimped on or overloaded the toppings. My friend, who is a bit of a pizza snob (there is such a thing), said it was one of... More

We went to Matchbox during Summer of 2014. We were a group of 8 and had to wait a short half hour. It was a beautiful day, so we waited outside and were entertained by the big screen overhead provided by Angelika Film Center. All of our meals were very good and the service was fast and friendly even though... More

They always please me with their food and interesting banter. The latest visit was for lunch. I had their pizza with coppa Italian ham and... More

Pizza was good and we enjoyed the other dishes. The whole thing was good I wouldn't say outstanding it was good and certainly if you want to grab something fun before a movie next-door this is a great option

Went here for father's birthday. Had mini-trio, tuna tartar, cinnamon buns followed by chicken sandwich, braised short ribs, fig and prosciutto pizza, club sandwich, crab cake and cheese pizza. Everything was good, wife and kids loved their meals. I loved the fig, prosciutto, blue cheese, pepper honey and arugula pizza. I did find the crust a little odd. I loved... More

Another one of the Matchbox restaurants in the Metro Washington area, this one lives up to the high standards of the founders. Expansive menu with its eye on being an inviting American grill. Good appetizers with interesting choices for soup and salad. The pizza menu is the star of the show with some very creative combinations that are both tasty... More
