Summary: Ella's features traditional, Neapolitan-style, thin crust pizza baked in a blistering-hot, wood-fired pizza oven. The result is a lightly crisp, nicely chewy crust with a hint of smoke which allows the full flavor of the quality toppings to emerge! Closest Metro is Gallery Place.
I went for lunch with a group of five other ladies from my work. We called ahead for reservations because often they get busy during the lunch rush - so when we arrived we were seated right away at a lovely table by the front window. The music was pumping and decor upbeat. Service was not that bad but the food was not that great. We all shared the special appetizer and it was alright, but not the best quality of prosciutto. Although my pizza was fresh, it was a little dry. The mushrooms were good but the goat cheese was lacking and needed some seasoning. A little overpriced, especially for lunch, compared to other wood fired pizza spots in the city. Overall, Ella's is decent but not my favorite.
