Upfront I will say I hail from an Italian New York heritage, how familiar and wonderful it always is to buzz into the Italian Store for some simple, delicious food! The subs, the large pizza slices, the plethora of pastas ... they fit a small deli and grocery nicely into the small space! We have been coming here for nearly... More

This is more of a take out shop than a restaurant, but their Italian Subs are unmatched in this area. Servings are huge and the quality is excellent. They have a great variety of salamis and hams, and the quality is excellent. Other deli meats and cheeses are also excellent. Although the sandwiches alone are worth the trip, don't ignore... More

This is a wonderful Italian deli. The subs and sandwiches are made to order with very fresh meats, cheese and produce. They have a nice selection of pre made salads, meats and cheeses, olives, etc, for purchase. The small grocery selections, fresh food, frozen entrees, packaged dry goods, and wines are all top of the line. This place always has... More

Wouldn't call this a restaurant. It's is a take out with a few tables on the sidewalk for those warm days. But if you are from the East Coast and craving an authentic Italian sub sandwich this is the place! Great bread with the best cold cut meats and toppings make this a mouth watering sandwich! But you will have... More

This is the real go to place for Italian sandwiches and pizza. Sandwiches are very good, everything consistently fresh and very generous with their toppings. Pizza is excellent also, best cheese and pepperoni, Nice selection of other Italian foods, cheese, wine and other specialty foods. Staff always courteous and helpful. Once you've been there you'll be back for more. Also... More

Wonderful collection of Italian ingredients anywhere in the Metro DC area (or wider). Authentic Italian canned goods that you can't find anywhere else. Plus the pizza is amazing. I'm not much into deli sandwiches but from what I've seen coming out of there, they are loaded with great looking stuff. Be sure to check out the homemade ravioli and past... More

I am from Boston Mass, where you will find deli's almost on every corner. When I moved to northern VA 7 years ago, I realized there were no deli's until someone introduced me to the Italian store. This place is not only authentic, you can buy local goods and produce, but also, has a great selection from the deli including... More

I visit the Italian Store in the Lyon Village shopping center at least once a week. It is a great place to pick up bread, italian meats, cheeses, pasta, olive oil and all your Italian food needs...what it is not is a restaurant. There are only a few tables outside but most people go there to pick up subs....I have... More

For NOVA and DC, this is about as good at it gets (and it's pretty great) for Italian food, subs, pizza, pasta, and deli items outside NYC or North Jersey. It's absolutely worth a visit but before warned this is a very popular place, and on weekends it may take a while waiting in line to get this delicious food... More
