“Legendary pizza--has a distinctive taste and crunch”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Good place for pizza (and by the slice) and frozen pastas and sauces. In the heart of Cleveland Park, very near a Red Line Metro stop. Reasonable prices.

“Great take out pizza and sandwiches...”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

I love Vace. It's a pretty small deli with no seating, so don't come here for dinner. All of their food is take out and includes delicious pizzas and really good sandwiches.

In addition to their slices, whole pizzas and sandwiches, there are lots of other italian goodies - large cans of olive oil and italian coffee, frozen pastas and sauces and even balls of pizza dough so you can go home and create your own pizza.

Basically I love their food and really only have two small complaints: The first is that they close pretty early - 8 or 9 pm, which leaves me with much worse choices for a late night pizza snack. The other gripe is that they don't deliver. There is often a long wait when you call ahead so it's possible they couldn't actually handle the extra volume that a delivery service would require, but this review would definitely be 5 stars if I could order a delivery Vace pizza at 1 am.

If you are in the area and have somewhere to take the pizza to eat it (your hotel, Rock Creek Park, the zoo) I can't recommend it highly enough.
