The best italian foods available in the area

The sandwiches are great. They make them to order so you get only what you like. You are able to obtain authentic ingredients if you want to have a tavola Italiana at home. They are expanding to another location as well. This is not a restaurant but a carryout. Enjoy!

Want an Italian sub and you are in Arlington? Here is where you get it. I think the Milano is their best seller and it really is good. My mouth is just watering thinking about it - but I'm working in DC today and won't be able to stop by. Last visit was in Mid February. Some seating outside -... More

This is not a restaurant. It's an Italian deli inside a grocery store. The best cold cuts bar none. In a hurry? Pick up a ready made Milano. A little more time, grab a number, browse the aisles then order your custom made sandwich. Also available pizza by the slice. Tables and chairs available outside for the true European experience.

The Italian store is know for its subs - fresh baked bread, generous w the meats and cheese, and a cornucopia of fixings. They've got great pizza, fresh cannoli, and authentic fresh pasta. The store, in an unassuming strip mall, is always busy with locals and people stopping in off the bike trail that runs behind. Come early if you're... More

The sandwiches are the main reason to go here. There are many selections of subs with Italian deli meats. The milano and the capri are must gets. And make sure to get all of the toppings, well worth it.

The Italian Store is not a sit-down restaurant (there's limited seating outside) but they serve some of the best subs and pizza you'll ever have. Highly recommended! Plus, they carry all kinds of food goodies and wine from Italy. Great for catering, too.

Unlike other reviewers, I have no reference point of comparison - but the Italian Store has great subs and okay pizza (pizza taste is very personal, so you may find that terrific as well). A wide variety of Italian food products are available as well. Typically very crowded and take-out only. Ample parking in a lot shared with grocery and... More

A few tables outside but this is not a restaurant. As a Northeast transplant into the Midatlatic, one thing I miss the most is a reliable deli counter for sandwiches and pizzas. Pizzas are great, authentic, thick and kinda greasy (that's a good thing). As for the sandwiches? This place makes variations on Italian sandwiches into an art. You'll always... More

On any given weekend be prepared to wait for your turn to order. But it's worth it. Their subs are stuffed with authentic Italian meats and cheeses and great vinaigrette soaked into the roll. Our favorites are the Capri and the Milano. Only had a slice of pizza once but it was really good. I'll have to do more research... More

Growing up in a small town in Eastern Massachusetts, we had a favorite pizza place called Table Top Pizza. Many of our family special - but informal, we didn't go there for weddings or Thanksgiving! - occasions were marked by a few pizzas from Table Top. The Italian Store is my new Table Top Pizza. The pizzas are old-school. Try... More
