Great stop for dinner. Craving pizza and a beer (or two) and enjoyed immensely. Ate at the bar downstairs. Helpful and knowledgeable bartender provided great guidance on the beer and the Macellaio 9” pizza was delicious.

Took friends to Georgetown and checked trip advisor for a decent place within a block. Not worth it. Prices were not cheap although this is known as a great cheap eat. When you walk in there are "outstanding reviews" that have been framed. The pizza...More
