I came here because of the ratings here on TA, and because it was close to the Ford's Theater, and because there would be some pre-teens with us. The restaurant did NOT disappoint! From the great appetizers (the chicken strips looked like Fried Clams...but they were quite delicious)! I had a "white" pizza (their special) and it was great. Everyone... More

My wife, another couple and I ate at Ella's today. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I had a pepperoni pizza that was above average. Our friends each had spaghetti and meatballs. I had a couple of bites and it too was above average. My wife ordered best -- seafood risotto. Awesome!! We have lived in Italy and toured... More

We walked past Ellas Pizza and it seemed quite busy so we decided to try it. We were greeted warmly and given a table but our server took ages to arrive and was not especially friendly or helpful. It was quite a while before she came back with our drinks and then wandered away again before eventually coming back and... More

Solid brick oven pizza and spaghetti and meatballs make this a solid choice for families on vacation or in DC for Verizon Center or museums. Also has a great happy hour deal with discount on pizza and beer of which there is a good selection. Can get a little cramped. Make a reservation if you can in advance.

Was really hoping this would be good. Our family likes Neapolitan style pizza so I sought this place out. Mine was too thin, over-baked, and tasted like cardboard - keep it doughy and a little chewy. Didn't start out well as our waitress didn't approach our table for 5 minutes and when she did, she had a snobby, "I don't... More

I've really enjoyed Ella's since I started working in DC near Chinatown years ago. They have many great dishes but it's hard not to go get one of their 10" brick oven type pizza's - they are so very good. Beyond the food, which is very reasonably priced, all the staff are great and service is friendly.

We had a late lunch on a summer afternoon. Great mixed green salads and two of the best pizzas ever. My husband has raved at least ten times since yesterday about the delicious anchovies on his. He rarely likes pizza outside of Italy because the crusts are gummy, the sauce is sweet, the cheese is greasy, etc. But Ella's Pizza... More

We went here for a casual meal when we were visiting DC. Service was ok, not great. Salad was good. Quattro Formaggi pizza was very good. List of pizzas was LONG and many looked good. Definitely something for every taste. I would visit again.

My wife and I ate lunch here on August 26, 2016. Our sausage and mushrooms pizza was delicious. She enjoyed her Summer Breeze cocktail, and I enjoyed my caipirinha. Our chocolate pudding was tasty. Our server, Jenny C, was great. My wife wanted a chocolate martini and Jenny got it done. Thanks for a nice dining experience.

Many people opt for Matchbox which is a nearby pizza place. I prefer Ella's. The pizza reminds me of pizza I had in Italy, the wine was wonderful, and although it can get crowded at lunch/dinner, I have never felt that get them in/get them out feeling that I have gotten at Matchbox. It's just good food, drinks, friends without... More
