An occasional series in which Kim tries to get dinner.

Restaurant: Duccini’s Pizza
Location: 1778 U St. NW, (202) 483-0007
Distance From My Apartment: 1.7 miles
Time Called: Monday, 8:24 p.m.
Time Food Arrived: 8:50 p.m.
Verdict: Good to go! Possibly the best pizza you can get delivered.

As far as pizza delivery goes in this city, I think Duccini’s is one of the safer choices. You’re going to pay a little more, but the food is better, and they’re more reliable. We ordered a large white pizza (oil, garlic, mozzarella, provolone, and cheddar cheese) for $14.99 and stuffed shells with meatballs for $10.25. It was perfect for a nice, cheesy carbo load. The shells, especially, are worth ordering. Creamy stuffing with some herbs, a slightly sweet tomato sauce, and delicious meatballs. And for about $25 (before tip) it fed two people, with half a pizza leftover. Not bad.
