walked in and ordered pizza, and had to wait 30-40 mins. But I blame myself for not calling ahead and going during dinner rush. Pizza was probably the best I've ever had, and cannoli was fresh and crisp.

This is an actual market that prepares food. There is limited outdoor seating only so I usually get my sandwiches to go. I just introduced a friend to the place and he was as impressed as I have been for years. Off the beaten path but worth it.

This is as good as it gets in the Washington D.C. Metro area for Italian subs. Good selection of wines at good prices. Pizza's are pretty good too but it's really about the subs for my family. Nice selection of Italian grocery items too. I have found some things here after not finding at local groceries. Highly recommend!

This place is excellent. Everything I have had, pizza, subs, lasagna, and salads are wonderful. The wine and cheese selections are very nice. This is a great place when you need lunch for one or something for the entire family.

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
