Our menu has something for everyone: wood fired brick oven pizza, made-from-scratch pasta dishes, amazing subs and sandwiches, a fresh salad bar, and much more.

This little restaurant is near where I live but I had never been until last night. For about $25 all in, my wife and I enjoyed our Italian entrees, a fresh salad bar and iced teas. Service was very good and the food was delicious. We will go back.

Place promises a wood fired pizza experience. On arrival from the parking lot the aroma was AMAZING! Waitress was very young - not sure if purposely aloof or just shy. I ordered an individual pizza and my wife a pasta dish. My pizza's crust was cooked to crispy perfection. The stone in the oven must be so hot the crust... More

If you are a first time visitor at this restaurant, you had better ask VERY detailed questions about the items you order. The servers assume you know how their dishes are prepared and do not offer information. We had a group of 8, and 3 of us got surprises when our meal was delivered. Their comments were, "That's just the... More

I ate here once months ago after first moving the area and have not been able to come back for one reason or another. Was so happy that they opened up Sundays! We were the first people there and got waited on by the friendly staff and owner!! Words cannot explain how wonderful their Magharita pizza is and cheesy bread.... More

I've got a wheat allergy so trying to find someplace to eat the night before an out of state marathon can prove difficult. I stumbled upon this place after doing a google search that lead me to a facebook page about GF eating in Virginia and then on to the Pizza Pasta Pit. The menu offered a great selection of... More

The pizza was delicious! A waitress who was not a native English speaker argued with me after she misunderstood my order. She said I ordered an additional pizza when I actually added toppings. She actually approached my husband after arguing with me in an attempt to have him pay for her mistake. She stopped speaking to me altogether after the... More

I might try it again now. Previous owners were rude to patrons and treated staff horribly. Refused to spend my money there after two bad experiences.

I have always gotten great service and wonderful pizza here. I placed a carry out order about 20 minutes before they closed and they couldn't have been nicer. My pizza was hot and made to perfection. They also have great sandwiches but their pizza is my first love.

This place changed hands 10/1/2014 according to the waitress. It has been around for a long time and I'd been there a couple of times in the past and found it fine. Since that time it has expanded and has become more of a sports bar. It is tidy and immaculately clean. Menu is extensive. I ordered the Pizza Hero,... More
