Look, I have a wood fired pizza oven of my own in my backyard. I'm Italian, and I make a lot of pizzas. trust me when I say I know from pizza. This place is simply the best place to get a "real" pizza Neapolitan style in NoVa. My wife is always chatting with the owner (he's from Naples) in Italian about the quality of the ingredients and the pizzas. He recently expanded the seating area (thank goodness), but it can still get crowded at some hours. You bus your own table here, it's very, very casual - jeans and sweatshirts are fine. Make sure you GRAB a table when you walk in, THEN place your order, otherwise you may end up holding a pizza with no place to sit. But in addition to the pizzas they make great polpette (meatballs), fried zuchinni flowers, and a nice caprese with small grape tomatoes (a different take yes, but it's excellent). The wine list is short, but contains some gems and is reasonably priced. We love this place for a simple casual pizza. Not fancy but OMG is it good.
