I saw this restaurant recommended by the Washington Post and being a fan of Neapolitan pizza decided to give it a try even though it was a bit far for us. Wow! It's real Italian pizza, so if you're more into the American version this restaurant is probably not for you because this is like the real thin crust, very well done pizza they serve in Naples. The menu offers both red and white sauce pizzas with several ingredient combination but also gives you the chance to make your own pizza for a similar price. They also have some Italian entrees like eggplant, some paninis, and a great selection of appetizers including arancini which is really really good. They also offer decent gelato. The place is very casual so don't expect a super nice establishment. At lunchtime you have to order at the front and get your own drinks and silverware, then they waitresses take the food to your table. On the weekends it gets very busy so the pizza can take about 20 minutes to get to your table but the wait is so worth it.
Now, we keep coming back because it's really good. I recommend you try a pizza with provola cheese which is smoked and it gives it a very special taste.
For those complaining about parking there's the huge parking lot of the Safeway right across the street so I can't imagine it being a problem.
