Italian Pizza Kitchen is a small pizzeria located in the Van Ness / Tenleytown area that just opened up this past year (2007), at 4483 Connecticut Ave. They have what I consider to be some of the best pizza in the DC area actually and I am A) A big pizza eater; and B) a long-time denizen of DC. As a matter-of-fact I would consider myself to be the foremost expert on pizza in DC and I defy anyone to argue that.
Cost – $
Service – B
It isn’t bad. The staff is fairly young and they do a lot of volume during weekday evenings but do a good job maintaining their composure and acting fairly polite.
Food – A
This place might have the best pizza in DC. I like their pizza better than the pizza at 2 Amy’s, which everyone claims is the best pizza in D.
Decor – C
It is pretty spartan. It is not filthy however, which is something I like in a pizzeria.
Feel – B
It is really a takeout place (even though there is seating) so people are constantly coming in and picking up food and then heading out. That being said, they project old black-and-white films on the wall so that is sort of cool I guess.
