There is a second location in Westover with a bigger selection, including gelato and coffee bar. While the subs are excellent, my go to is the sicilian pizza...delish! They have a great assortment of food imported from Italy, as well as a large selection of Italian wine. If you are looking for a specialty item from Italy...go here first!

My go-to is the Capri, but you want a great sandwich (the hard bread is the way to go, it's almost like the bread you get in Europe which nothing in US comes close), this is the place to go. Reasonably priced. If you go at lunch time, be ready to wait if you want to place an order, they... More

My son requested a tiramisu birthday cake this year. Most recipes require authentic lady fingers which I found at the Italian Store. His cake was amazing and I will definitely make this again. On the way out I grabbed a bag of their frozen pizza dough and I can't tell you what a difference it was compared to any others... More

I've been going there for close to 20 years. It's the only place I know of in the DC Area that is a real Italian deli. I grew up in NY and this is the only place that comes close.

This is a fun get about anything to eat place with generous subs and sandwhiches on homemade breads Everything else in the store is pricey, sodas, chips, cookies, so be cautious about the add ons for your $8 sub will cost you as much as a sit down meal somewhere nice. The food is super fresh, the style full of... More

Make sure you take a ticket when you first come in. The lines are long around lunch time. There always seems to be lots of people behind the counter so the wait isn't long. They have an extensive menu of Italian sandwiches. The bread is great. I can't tell you my favorite because everything I have had was delish. There... More

I have tried to eat here, actually its a carry out only! many times but the crowd is always long and busy. So I finally caught the place when it wasn't so busy. We had a huge pizza! It was good, not great and not was I was expecting. I can save myself the trouble next time, I didn't really... More

This is primarily take out food although there are a couple of tables outside. I grew up in NY/NJ and this feels like home - authentic Italian!! The subs are the best in the area and the pizza and prepared foods are great too. The manicotti with cheese and spinach is a personal favorite as is the linguine and clam... More

Checked out the latest Italian Store in Westover section of north Arlington. Had two pieces of pepperoni pizza that were delicious. Great crust, great toppings. Very efficient with separate warming oven for pizza by the slice.
