Why does this place get such great reviews from the Washingtonian and Tom S?
Here's an exchange from one chat:
Bethesda, Md.: We stopped going to Two Amys a year ago, when we continually were served small, hard, burned pizzas with only a dab of tomato sauce, cheese, and basil as well as rice balls that were cold inside. Mia's is better so far.
Tom Sietsema: Okay, okay, okay. I went back to Two Amys recently.
My pie was:
Nor any less generous with its toppings than a true Italian pizzeria.
Just one man's experience.
Well, I was there the other day and I had the same experience as the Bethesda chatter. The pizza was bad (burnt outside, soupy inside, skimpy toppings), the service was disinterested, and the ambience was awful. (Notice it was Tom who first said "soupy", not the chatter - hmmmmm, a Freudian slip?) A good wine and beer list, some decent sides, and OK prices does not add up to much. There are many pizzas that are far better, including the near-by Vace store.
