Second location in Westover is a great experience!

I went to the new location earlier this week and it was great. Lots of space to walk around, outdoor seating and of course, yummy food! I had a slice of mushroom pizza, some tomato and broccoli salad, and a cannolli. Everything was good, but have to give extra credit regarding the cannolli, as... read more

This is a deli with Italian subs & pizza but it's also an Italian store with all the ingredients to make a real Italian meal. They have, without a doubt, the best Italian sausage in the whole area--imported from New York in both sweet & hot. There is Prosciutto & other cold meats from Italy, They carry al sorts of... More

Long lines, especially on the weekend. The sandwiches are 2 fisters and the pizza the best this side of NJ. I've visited 50 times since my move her from the Big Apple and truth be told I've never gotten an entrée, I always plan to but end up with a great sandwich. No seating, just cafe tables out side.

If you want chicken parm, an amazing sub or any high-level Italian fare, this is the place to go. If you're going on the weekend, make sure to get there early and take a number!

The Italian Store is a "store" and not a restaurant in any traditional sense. There are a couple of small tables outside, but prepared food is primarily for takeaway. I ordered a pizza from here on a Friday night. I called the order in and was told it would be ready in 45 minutes, and 45 minutes exactly it was... More

I had the Capri fully loaded on soft bread; it was out of this world delicious. Meats and cheese were the freshest they could be. The small sub was a filling meal – no need for chips. A new Italian Store will open soon in the Westover neighborhood in Arlington. I cannot wait and expect to be a repeat customer.

This is the best pizza in NOVA. Gooey, large slices just dripping with toppings! Be prepared to wait (especially on weekends) as those unused to such greatness get educated. However, the canneloni is fewsh made daily and also delicious. Likewise, the subs are out of this world. This place is all about quality. Also, don't forget the Italian snacks, candies,... More

The Italian store is a great place for an authentic Italian sandwich. There is typically a 10-15 minute wait but it is well worth it.

I visited Trip Advisor to get some guidance on where to eat while visiting the area this week and saw that the # 1 rated place to get Italian food was "The Italian Store" as opposed to one of the several Italian restaurants. My curiosity got the best of me so I visited the place to see what I was... More

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!
