Popped in for quick lunch - amazed at the value of the $10.99 2 course lunch menu. Had White Bean Soup, followed by 7" pizza. Great value. Service was ok, nothing special. Toilets again, just ok. Place was clean. Shame there is no wifi; always helpful when having a quick stop on a sightseeing day.

This is a medium/small restaurant in Chinatown. They were really busy all weekend but worked very hard to accommodate our group of 24. They fit us in by splitting the group up into two right next to each other. (which was fine for us!) The food was terrific. Fresh, unique, well prepared, high quality ingredients. The roasted tomato soup was so good I'm still thinking about it almost a month later!
The servers were attentive, well trained and upbeat. Everyone loved their meals. I would definitely return!

Dined here last night-nice casual family friendly restaurant. Red Sangria OK-could have used more fruit. Wood fire cooked pizza was great. Kitchen messed up my pizza, but a new one was promptly served. Our waiter kindly picked up dessert for us. Overall a great choice that won't break the bank. And they have call ahead seating too.

We can thank Trip Advisor for finding Ella's after a visit to the Natural History museum. We were initially annoyed that the large, takeout pizzas were not available for dine-in service. However, the portions were good-sized and even the 10" personal pizza was more than one person would eat. The calzones are excellent. The kids menu covered all of the basics (pasta, pizza, etc.). The staff was friendly and attentive without hovering over us. While we would recommend Ella's, and go again if we were in the neighborhood, more than likely we would find a new restaurant to try.

Ella's is a neighborhood joint in Penn Quarter with reasonable prices. I have dined there half a dozen times over the years. Then I noticed a special -- two items for $10.99 -- an Ella's riff on a French la petite lunch menu. This is a * great* deal, especially in the vicinity of restaurants where you'd spend twice that amount. The first courses include white bean soup, warm lentil salad, fried mozz with tomato sauce, two salads. The secondi include chicken penne pasta, mushroom ravioli, spaghetti and meatball, and a 7" version of their famous pizzas. Between friends and myself, we've tried the soup, a beet/orange salad, the fried mozz, the spaghetti, the ravioli and the pizzas. For the value and quality, this is a great deal for a civilized lunch. The portions are generous considering they are probably going for a tapas-sized offering to compete with all the small plate gimmickry nearby.
Go -- before the special expires!
