Small outfit with excellent service. The food and drinks are excellent and the atmosphere is very intimate. Pizza is made on right there in own oven - you can see - and it tastes GREAT!

Thanks Monkey! All our pizza dough - including our gluten free option - is made in house every day. Chef is pulling down some veggies from the rooftop garden this season for some specialty summer pizzas. Cheers, Ryan

A group of 7 went and the people couldn't have been nicer. The food was amazing and the wine selection was equally good. I will be back in the DC area and will for sure go back to this restaurant

Ended up at Urbana after realizing how close it was to our hotel in Dupont Circle. We certainly were not expecting the phenomenal experience we had. Great wine selection, and the lamb chops were perfectly cooked. Lemon Semifreddo was remarkable as well.

Thanks JpG, That semifreddo was amazing, we are going to have to convince Chef to make those two dishes staples and not just a specials. See you next time! Ryan
