Called into Ella's as it was close-by our hotel and had heard good reviews. Wasn't disappointed, had a fab pizza and delicious Tiramisu for dessert.

We booked as near to our hotel and was not disappointed. We had the fried chicken and Meatballs for starters and they were superb. I personally had the Calzone for my main and it's one of the best I have ever had. Highly recommended.

We made a 5:45 reservation on a Saturday and when we arrived they seated us right away. Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) had a great meal! The apps (mozzarella cheese balls and bruschetta) were delicious. Our meals were excellent too--we had pizza, pasta and a salad. Service was a tad slow because they were busy but overall... More

This was a pretty average pizza place - a little loud, but clean, fun, and reasonably priced. We each got our own pizza. Son loved his cheese pizza. My sausage pizza was just meh. The crust was underdone and the sausage was just one step above ground beef. My husband got a mushroom pizza with anchovies. He said he couldn't... More

We were glad we made a reservation because this place was not very big. We are so glad we ate here because the pizza was so good! It hit the spot after a long day of sight seeing. Our server was very friendly and helpful, too.

I've been a big fan of Ella's but I've rarely eaten the pizza as my usual companion is gluten free. The appetizers, small plates, and entrees have been consistently varied, interesting, and tasty. But today I came with a friend and we both got pizzas. The regular pizzas are quite good,and there is a wide variety of choices. A single... More

In town and meeting a friend for dinner, we met at Ella's. While it is first a pizza place, we ordered from the rest of the menu. The gnocchi with tomato sauce was an ample portion, and there was just the right amount of sauce for the serving. The calzone was also quite tasty. Our server was attentive and pleasant.... More

We went to Ella's after a full day of sightseeing. It's located on 9th street and very accessible to 2-3 metro stations, which is very convenient. Very close to the Verizon center. We had pizzas (perfectly cooked) and pasta, and one of the best salads I've ever tasted. Excellent, friendly (not pretentious) and enthusiastic service with moderate pricing.
