  • Serious pie enthusiasts have made the pilgrimage to Menomale since its 2012 opening for Ettore Rusciano's authentic Neapolitan pizza.
  • Great little spot with outdoor patio, near Rhode Island metro. I loved the Chef's Special pizza, piled high with arugula & prosciutto.
  • Best calzone I've had in DC!
  • Get the lobster pizza. It is life changing.
  • Eating here reminds me of eating in Europe where ingredients are fresh, beer is the preferred drink over water, and a high-quality meal doesn't cost you an arm and a leg.
  • Try the spicy Diavola or the arugula-topped Di Ettore:
  • The la bomba is amazing! Kinda an Italian chocolate filled doughnut.
  • Un buon posto per mangiare una pizza italiana, gustosa, digeribile e sana!
  • The Diavola pizza is mighty delicious: DOP San Marzano tomatoes, Fior di latte mozzarella, basil, spicy salami, red peppers
  • Start off with the delicious appetizer of Coccio: garbanzo beans, Fior di latte mozzarella, Bulgarian feta, olive oil. Served with celery & freshly baked crostini bread. It's like Italian hummus!
  • Great Neapolitan pizza, and even sandwiches are made with pizza dough. Salads with fresh arugula and some creative cocktails. Tiny, but worth multiple visits.
  • I give it a 12! Best Italian I've had since Europe. Have to try la bomba for dessert!
  • Nice place, delicious Italian pizza
  • Skip wine in favor of the carefully curated brews from self-proclaimed beer nerd Leland Estes:
  • I ask for my crust well done, otherwise its a little chewy for my taste.
  • The capricciosa & the diavola (for those who like spicy ) delicious
  • Seating is very limited but the Pizza is amazing and great beer on the menu. Service could use an uptick.
  • Pizza is amazing. The dough is flavorful, soft and crispy. Their pizza oven works wonders.
  • The dough is done right, but the sauce and the sausage had no flavor. Go to Graffiato or 2 Amy's for great Italian pizza.
  • Terrific pizza with a good chew. Mostly friendly though inattentive and inconsistent service.
