Baffetto’s is a no-frills pizza place in Adams Morgan located at 2005 18th St NW.
Cost – $
Service – A
Every single time I order from Baffetto’s, whether it’s in person or over the phone and regardless of hour, I get the same great service with a smile. Delivery is also very quick, sometimes as quick as 30 minutes but almost never over 40.
Food – B
Pizza types range from traditional to gourmet with thin crust being an option. There are also calzones, wings and hot and cold sandwiches. I am forever on the hunt for a good Italian sandwich and Baffetto’s has some pretty good ones. They also serve pizza by the slice.
Decor – N/A
It’s pretty much a counter with a couple of high tables with chairs against the wall. More like a waiting area.
Feel – C
I have been here over a dozen times but never before midnight so as far as late-night eateries go, it’s less crowded and chaotic than the pizza by the slice places up 18th Street.
