2 Amy's

  • s

I am getting mixed reviews on this place. Is it good or what?

  1. I thought the pizza was good, but we ordered two fairly simple pizzas and a calzone, one salad, two glasses of wine and a soda, one dessert and two cups of coffee, and the bill was almost eighty bucks! Yipes! We certainly can't afford to go there very often.

    1. I will say I've only eaten there once, on a busy Saturday, but both the pizza we ordered and the pizzas on both neighboring tables came out overloaded with liquid in their centers making it difficult to cut a piece of pizza, and impossible to eat without knife and fork. In addition, everything was overloaded with boatloads of olive oil, and what was supposed to be a "20-25 minute" wait was over an hour (for 2 people.) Other friends of mine have been and had almost identical experiences. Perhaps on the weeknights it's better...that's the only way I can see it receiving mixed reviews and not consistently poor.

      1. Two Amy's is the best Pizza in WDC. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. The toppings are fresh and delicious, and the crust is like butter (2 sticks) without the fat. DO IT.

          Yeah, take that 2002 reviews! Over five years later, your experience might be different.

        2. It's horrible. Don't go. Tell everyone you know it's horrible. Maybe, then I'll be able to get a table at a reasonable time.

          1. It's actually fantastic. I still dream of the Margherita Extra.
