If you wish to walk 8-10 blocks off the mall area to free yourself from over priced museum cafe's which serve few options this is a great pizza/italian restaurant.
This place not only has great pizza and friendly wait staff but a nice beer list to boot. My personal favorite is Allagash White (belgium beer) and they happened to have that on tap. I ordered the salsiccia piccante pizza which had tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, spicy italian sausage, banana peppers & red onion and was delicious and my wife ordered a salad and pepperoni pizza which she split with a friend and they were both very happy with the choices and portion sizes. There were also 3 children who all ordered their own entree's and the bill was still just over $100 (including tip, 2 beers and soda's) which I thought was very reasonable for the amount of food ordered.
We got there at 12:30pm and were fortunate to get the large table on the right but around 1pm the place got crowded and a decent wait formed. Id certainly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the museum mall area and have a nice affordable meal. There is even a parking garage right next door which had a very reasonable saturday rate of $13 for the whole day so we left our car there ate and toured some museums.
