Just Add Olive Oil: Two Amy's Neapolitan Pizzeria in Washington, D.C.

Two Amy’s Neapolitan Pizzeria in Washington, DC is like traveling back to Italy. The long list of sheep and cow’s milk cheeses, cured pork and beef, thin pizzas, homemade desserts like sfogliatelle and more. That is to say, just about everything that should have extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top is served there.

The last time my husband and I ate there, we ate with such gusto that we both left with stained shirts. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is what we ate:
burrata (mozzarella made as soft as butter)
ricotta and ramps with roasted eggplant
broccoli rabe
fried rice balls stuffed with mozzarella
pizza with escarole and sausage
panna cotta with a caramel sauce

Get there however you can. The website offers driving, metro/bus and helicopter directions. They understand the importance of a speedy arrival!
