The Italian Store is a Italian Deli that is reminiscent of the Italian Groceries that dotted Pittssburgh in the 50's and 60's. You can find any type of Italian specialty food there! But they also make the best NY style Pizza in the area and maybe the best subs this side of Philadelphia. It is take out only and there... More

This is an old fashion Italian Deli with a small Italian gourmet market in it. The products in the market are delicious and unique, with many of them made on the premises. There are also great cheeses and wines. The deli counter, which also serves pizza, has a fantastic variety of sandwhiches from which to choose. The downside is that... More

Be prepared to wait if you go during the lunch rush. This place gets packed for a reason. The sandwiches are great/ I have been going there since we moved to the area in 2005. I have also ordered their sandwich trays for football parties and when I have out of town guests, I have ordered their lasagnas.

Always quality, tasty, pleasant, well priced. My daughter lives in France and she heads straight to the Italian Store whenever she is home for a visit. Well worth it. It's more of a deli than a restaurant and we usually buy carry out. Super sandwiches.

I have never been to the Italian Store when it is not really busy. Any time of day. Good news is that they have plenty of help so don't despair if you walk in and there are 50 people ahead of you in line. It is worth the wait. Great sandwiches made to order and customization and we like their... More

Enjoyed the sandwich a lot from Italian Store. There was a line both times I've been in the store, but the quality of the sandwiches and the variety of things you can buy justify going there as much as possible.

When I moved to the area over 10 years ago and tried to explain to people where I lived, they didn't know where I was talking about. When I explained "close to the Italian Store"... That cleared things up. Everyone seemed to know where that was. The Italian Store is fantastic for Italian meats and subs. It really is a... More

I've been going here for years and it's impossible to beat their subs. The pizza is pretty good too. Only downside, the place is popular and the lines can be long, but worth the wait!

This is the most wonderful Italian Store in the whole DC area - it carries an amazing variety of salumi, cheeses, wines, homemade ravioli and Italian delicacies that you can't get anywhere else -- it is family owned and has grown without losing their touch. But.....the REAL reason to go and wait in line -- and you will have to... More

There are many reasons to come here frequently. I know that the subs and the pizzas tend to get great reviews and I fully agree. But for the me the best part is the prepared food from the fridge or freezer: Italian home cooking at its best! The cold cuts are also first-rate, as are all the high-quality food items... More
