“Very Good New Haven style Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Had a small clam and spinach pizza today here. By far the best New Haven style in this area.
The clams were good as well as the spinach. The crust was thin and a bit crisp as was done many years ago getting this style good. Service was good and the wait at 12:30 PM was only about 15 minutes.

“Classy and Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The pizza itself was wonderful with a crunchy crust and flavorful toppings. The ambience was pretty nice and wasn't intimidating. The only thing bad was the service. The waiters and waitresses are nice but because it is so busy, it may take a very long time for the pizza to arrive. Overall though, I had a very nice experience.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the newest pizza place in Bethesda, and so far we've only had carry-out, about a dozen times! I'm severely lactose-intolerant, so in general pizza is a challenge. But Haven specializes in tomato pies, with crispy thin crusts. So I get an individual pie with something like artichokes and sausage, and no cheese, and no one ever wants to share!

“Great New Haven style pizza, excellent wine and beer selection, superb gelato.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We go to Haven frequently and the service is always excellent. On the one occasion they slipped up, they brought us an extra free meal. They have a great wine cellar, which is outrageous for a pizza place. The pizza is perfect.

“Yummy Pizza and Super Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We were referred to Haven by friends who consider it the best pizza place in the DC metro area. We thoroughly enjoyed our waitstaff, and the decision by management to make an adjustment to our bill due to mis-timing of our ordered items. Salad was great as was the tomato pie with our extras. Can't say the white clam pie was anything to write home about that night. However, we will certainly be going back as there were just too many nice things about Haven not to!
