Had two dinners here, first was better than second, as service was a little slow second go around. Food was always good. Staff seemed preoccupied..still tipped them well...

My son and I got a great pizza at this cafe. It was thin crust and light on the cheese, which was really great considering how too many American pizzas have way too much cheese. The pizza came promptly and was a great price.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after a late night flight. The staff were about to close however were very accommodating in serving us. We chose the calzone and it was absolutely amazing, the best calzone we ate whilst visiting the US. Would absolutely return again!

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.

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.
