Ghibellina, 14UP

(See the July 20, 2014, Review here.) What’s interesting if that I have some very knowledgeable diners agreeing with me about the pizza, and others basically saying that I’m crazy – that it’s okay, but not even close to being … Continue reading

Blaze Pizza, Bethesda

I had lunch at the Westfield Montgomery (formerly Montgomery Mall) Blaze Pizza today at around 11:45 (they opened at 11, and I was ticket #9). If you’re standing outside, facing the Cheesecake Factory, go into the entrance on your left (do this despite the daunting … Continue reading

Pupatella, Arlington, VA

(See the June 21, 2011 Review here.) Confession time. A few years ago, I had called Pupatella the new king of pizza in the DC area, having wrested that (unofficial, but correct) award away from Comet Ping Pong, which had … Continue reading

Emilio’s Brick Oven Pizza, Sterling, VA

Emilio’s (either www.emiliossterling.com or www.eatatemilios.com) has been open since 1997, and is a classic suburban pizzeria, of great value to the neighborhood, but not a restaurant you’d travel for, unless you were me. I’m typing this at Emilio’s now, on their … Continue reading
