Solid Choice When in Arlington

Had a fantastic dinner of salad/pizza tonight. Our group of 5 enjoyed happy hour drink specials, specialty pizza (thin crust), Italian Subs (great rolls), and even rave reviews for the kids menu (chicken and broccoli). Classy place yet family casual. I highly Reccomend when in Arlington. Enjoy.

I grew up in NY and can easily say that Cafe Pizzaiolo has the BEST pizza that I've been able to find in NOVA. Was bummed when they moved from Crystal City to Shirlington (because I now have to pay for delivery)... but their pizza is worth it!

The pizza is great and the bar features a great selection of Virginia craft beer. Make sure to check out the pizza box art.

This is a new place in the neighborhood and so we decided to try it out. I had the eggplant and my husband had a panini with a side Caesar salad. The eggplant was good, his panini was not really a panini, more like a sandwich, and the salad was made with iceberg lettuce rather than romaine which is what... More

Pizza was ok. Not great, but fair. Not a lot of taste. Service was not good. Had to ask twice for everything, clean silverware, water and tea refills. Server was wearing dirty clothes and dragging around like he didn't want to be there. Can't say we are eager to go back

I stopped by this place while staying at the Americana Hotel. The pizza is delicious and the atmosphere in the place is young and vibrant. I ordered the The New Liese Pizza which was delicious. I also ordered the Macaroni & Cheese which was good as well. The whole block has various restaurants, so it's nice to take a walk... More

Found this place when the nearby restaurant I had planned to go to was closed for a water main issue. Came fairly late to this place fairly close to closing time. A quaint place. I was a bit hungry so I had a calzone and a salad. It hit the spot. Although I hadn't planned on going here glad I... More

We just tried this over the holidays on the way to the movie theatre. We were favorably impressed! We liked the kind of hip decor and sitting up in the loft. The pizza was great! The service was great! They had port city beer which is a plus for supporting a local brewery. Recommend it for casual dining--family place, too.
