The Chicago style here is excellent. An awesome crispy crust that isn't too doughy. They don't overdo the Chicago with cheese either. A great balance of crust, cheese, and sauce. Also the pie itself is huge! I prefer the Chicago here over District of Pi.

 

The Detroit style is also fantastic. The cheddar burnt onto the crust is amazing. Keep it up Della Barba! I look forward to my return visits and your future growth.

I ordered the classic pepperoni via Caviar last Thursday. The Caviar delivery was too slow, but the pizza was phenomenal. There's something magic about the texture of crust that I can't quite put my finger on. It's super fresh but perfectly chewy and blackened perfectly (but not excessively) by the oven.

I'm excited to try this place out again, but instead of using Caviar, I'll go pick it up myself so it's not sitting in the window for 25 minutes before being picked up. 

According to the website, this is a "soft open" and this pizza place will have a more permanent setup soon. This is great news as D.C. needs better pizza!

High quality sourced ingredients + old school style + gourmet + pizza in DC.  So excited to have this new edition to our city. This is not junky convenience pizza. Della Barba is delicious crunchy peppers and fine calabrian chili pepper and tasty sauce and finely shaved fresh pecorino....

Great pie! It's a little strange to order and then need to call to check if your order is ready. Then they bring it to you as you wait on the sidewalk, but I'd order again for sure. The dough/crust is outstanding. Just the right amount of chew while being crisp on the bottom. They don't make the classic mistake of putting too much mozzarella on their pie either. Got the traditional and I'm going for the Chicago style next time.

Fantastic pizza. Perfect sauce. Try the Detroit pizza now. You will not be disappointed.

Great Pizza!  Ordered the American Classic and the Multi-grain while at Republic Restoratives for drinks both were excellent.  Quality of the crust was great and coming from the east coast I miss the New York style pizza I'm used to. Toppings were excellent quality and I didn't feel like going into a food coma like I do after eating at some of the well known corporate establishments.  Nice addition to DC!

Absolutely fantastic! We had the Chicago pie and it was everything I had hoped for. So much cheese and spinach and the meatballs were among the best I've had out. 

The shredded cheese and pepper flakes were also surprisingly fantastic.

Best pizza crust in DC!  Lots of flavor.  It's the type that takes a long time to make, with lots of different size air pockets - super tasty. 
We got a Classic with sausage. Perfect with a beer at home.  The sausage had nice seasoning.  Came with two little containers: chilli flakes and nice quality parmesan.
They seem to deliver to Atlas Brewery, next time...
