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.

I really like the atmosphere here. In all of the crowded Shirlington places, this is a great little spot to grab a bite and have a cocktail. Not expensive, excellent pizza and food in general. Staff is friendly and this is a great place to have a conversation.

Only has brunch menu on the weekend. We didnt realize that and went in during the week. They allowed us to order from the bkfst menu anyway. We had the bkfst pizza. It was tasty and enough for 2. We had no problem with the service, but it was early and not many were in the restaurant.

I will start by saying I haven't had any issues when I went to the fern location, this review is strictly with my frustration at the Shirlington location. I have now been there several times because my husband, myself and daughter enjoy the food and menu selection. The down side and the reason I can just no longer go back... More

Cute little pizza place. Used to go here often when I lived in the area. Have never had a bad meal here and the staff are all super friendly!

Our last night in Arlington and we decided to head out for pizza. The pizza and wings were GREAT! I really hate we hadn't tried this place sooner. Great staff, great food and a wonderful atmosphere.

My family and I were visiting the d. C. Area and staying at embassy suites. We decided to order from here based on reviews and proximity to our hotel. What a mistake! Not only did Our rder take an hr and a half but our pizza was freezing cold and looked like separated slices thrown in a box! It looked... More
