Bebo (past few months)
Service issues have been getting much better at this somewhat maligned place..and the pizza is emerged as one of the best in the DC area at the moment. They have reformulated the crust for winter and it is outstanding..they have also eased up on the olive oil and kept the toppings proportioned correctly so that the "wet pizza" syndrone which occasionally raised its ugly head seems to be a thing of the past. We have had about 10 pies in the past few months and all of been close to perfect (no 2 Amys underdone crusts). Other pasta dishes have benn very good to excellent, also. I think the kitchen is more consistent now than it had been and the service is settling in to the at least tolerable level..they have two excellent newer bartenders who keep things going at the bar area. But again, its probably best not to go during prime time to assure the optimum treatment However, Bebo may now be underated and its pizza makes the trip worth it.
"...and the service is settling in to the at least tolerable level.." This is said so matter-of-factly, it blows my mind! The fact that a restaurant associated with Roberto Donna just has "tolerable service" is disgraceful. He should have sacked the whole staff a long time ago. I say punish bad service by NOT eating at the restaurant. Get that good pizza to go.
