See Esposito’s, under Italian, the owners are from Elizabeth, New Jersey. City Paper says that 2 Amys, 3715 Macomb St., 202-885-5700, is the best around, their reporter sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Pizzeria Paradiso, 2029 P St., is considered the best DC pizza by many, now also at 3282 M St. Coppi’s, 1414 U St., comes recommended. Chris Coyne, who is from New Jersey, says Atlantis on King Street / Rt. 7, east of I-395, is the best he has found. Nor should you neglect Elena’s, listed under Bolivian. Two old places are Ledo in Adelphi, and Mario’s Pizza in Arlington, both about fifty years old. If you’re really desperate, drive to New Haven, Connecticut, the best pizza in the U.S. Chile and Sweden are strong pizza countries, too.
