Once upon a time, the District of Columbia was a pizza desert, a land where khaki-wearers bided their time until the fortunes tied to two-, four-, or six-year cycles became clear, resigning themselves to late-night calls to Domino’s and hoping Manny & Olga’s wouldn’t turn them off  pizza for good. They suffered locals’ misplaced love for Ledo’s and watched with frustration as Adams Morgan’s jumbo slices edged increasingly close to the half-smoke as one of the city’s signature dishes. Thankfully, those days are over. Thank 2Amy’s.

2Amys’ membership in the D.O.C (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) means its pizzaiolos adhere to the guidelines of what the Italian government deems a pizza should be. When you take a bite, you know you are getting a quintessential, traditional pie. Their menu is broken up into D.O.C pizza offerings, stuffed pizzas, and more traditional but uncertified options, but panelists voted the namesake pie (tomato sauce and mozzarella) No. 33 on this list of America’s 101 best pizzas — higher than a good number of pizzerias in New York.

  • the best pizza in dc
  • order out - it can be pretty loud. and get the deviled eggs.
  • Burrata Cheese is Amazing! Rapini is a must! They use the most delish balsamic vinegar! Fav Salad on the menu is the Escarole. The Pizza is Certified by The Italian Government Neapolitan Pizza!
  • Order the "suppli a telefono" (deep-fried rice balls), which are delicious and as good as the real deal
  • Great pizza..loved the etna pizza ... Very flavorful
  • Expect a fairly long wait and a loud atmosphere! But the pizza is divine.
  • The fizzy red wine (gragnano) cures all woes
  • The Norcia is a solid choice: tomato, salami, grilled peppers, fresh mozzarella, and grana.
  • If you're only getting one pizza, make sure it's the Margherita Extra!
  • The perfect pizza pie- dont miss the donuts served on Saturdays and Sundays at lunch.
  • Potato and prosciutto croquettes and Norcia pizza are a few definite must-haves at this tasty pizzeria.
  • Puttanesca
  • Some of our favoritesdeviled eggs topped with piquant green sauce, gorgeously fried prosciutto croquettesnever leave the menu. Look to the specials for interesting spins on seasonal veggies.
  • Cool place. Atmosphere is okay. Very loud tho. Probably not worth the 40 minutes I had to wait.
  • It can be to get into the airy dining room at 2 Amys, as the Cleveland Park restaurant has a reputation for its authentic Neapolitan pies. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The DOC is a classic. As is the lawnmower.
  • I want to cry, this pizza is so good. The almond cake was delightful.
  • The terrace out back is lovely in the summer
  • Yes, the pizza is fabulous- as are all of the small bites: cheeses, meats, etc. I recommend the goat ricotta with honey and pine nuts. Soft and sweet in just the right ways.
