“NY Pizza without the attitude!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Best thin crust pizza south of NYC - unobtainable north of NYC - I hope they open one (or more) in New England soon! Washington has Wiseguys for thin crust and pi for thick crust both within a 15-minute walk of each other - what more could you want?

Wiseguy has great staff - had a fantastic Virgil's Root Beer to go with a great slice of pizza. They offer a mix of traditional and innovative kinds of pies (chicken and cheese pizza anyone?) - they also tend to a liberal use of their spices.

They have limited indoor and outdoor seating. Very much a neighborhood spot - just down the street from China Town. We WILL be back the next time we visit DC.

“Best Pizza!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

They advertise New York-inized water and I don't know what that means, but this was the best pizza I've ever had! I would imagine if I had New York Pizza that this was even better! The pizza was fresh with crispy crust and fresh toppings!The owner made sure we liked it and was satisfied and they had Italian Sodas for fountain drinks...best creme soda I've ever had.

“Wiseguy NY Pizza Tasty in DC!!!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Was recently in DC for the Annual Wreath Laying at Arlington, and arriving late on Friday night, was hungry and tired....the Desk Staff at the Hyatt were generous and effusive in their recommendation of this place, a few blocks from Union Station and the Hyatt. The pizza was delicious, the "Wiseguy" with homemade meatballs, marinara, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese was outstanding! A little pricey ($24.99 for an 18" pie) but worth it....mainly take-out, but a charming little few tables for "eating in". The pizza bakers are native-born Italian (always good sign at a pizza place)....and other Italian delicacies are available....try the garlic knots...Their motto is "No short cuts...no compromises...great pizza"...getting hungry writing this review! Try it you'll enjoy....
