A stalwart on D.C.’s popular 14th Street corridor, Etto has a reputation for offering the city’s best pizza. But the restaurant also offers D.C.’s gutsiest wine list. Drawing almost exclusively from Sicily and Beaujolais, the restaurant only offers about 40 wines, half of which are offered by the glass. This focus makes sense once one examines the kitchen, since the chefs concentrate almost exclusively on pizza and cured meats.

What to drink
It's hard to turn down wines from Sicily and Beaujolais. But Etto's co-owner, Peter Pastan, also owns "Piedrasassi," a winery in Lompoc, California, directed by Sashi Moorman, whose wines are certainly worth exploring.
