Pete's has the best pizza crust in DC: crisp on the bottom, chewy on the inside, though not nearly as good as in New Haven or Naples. The plain cheese pizza is OK. The tomato sauce is good, but the cheese is too much of a thick, solid layer. The veggie slices (which seem to change from day to day) are inventive but hit or miss; they suffer from the common disease of piling too many things on at once. At lunch Pete's is super-convenient, since you order at the counter and your food comes quickly. The beer selection is very good, too.

Sat outside, nice tables in the sun or shade. Quick service. Excellent food. Salad was small for the price, but I guess most come here for the pizza, which did not disappoint, thin and crispy!! Another member in our party had a pasta dish and they said that was excellent as well. You can't go wrong here.

The New Haven pizza is a variety of the so called neapolitan pizza; a thin crust pizza. Here the crust is crispy and tastes more like flatbread. They have a variety of fillings, all of them good. I love the chief's choice. The spinach salad, with crumbled goat cheese and pine nuts is excellent. I always go for the slices because they don't have small pizzas, which makes me lower a point on their rating because warmed up pizza is not as good as fresh from the oven.

My wife and I had a "Down the Hill" specialty pizza. It had meatballs, sausage, black olives, peppers, mushrooms. and carmelized onions I like a little more cheese on my pizza, but overall it was very good. We shared a pistachio cannoli which was good also. Although they were very busy (Saturday night), it did not take long to get our food. You order at the counter and then the food is delivered to your table. You can eat either inside or outside. A very fine pizzeria!
