Delicious food. Welcoming staff. Family atmosphere. Great all around. I really enjoyed the eggplant lasagna and our party also had an absolutely delicious oven baked pizza. You will love it!

“The pizza's pretty good, but over-priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This place bills itself as selling authentic pizza, as in "Italy authentic," not "NY authentic." In fact, it is neither. But, that is not to say it's bad; the pizza's actually pretty good. However, even though it's just around the corner, my family and I don't go there much because the prices are high for what is essentially a pizza joint. This was really brought home to us after a recent trip to Italy, where the price of a "real" pizza was substantially lower than what Pie-Tanza charges. I would say that on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, the pizza is about a 6 or 7. When we do go, for the three of us, with salads and pizza, the bill usually comes to more than 50 bucks. At Flipping Pizza, in Falls Church, the same meal costs about half as much, and we like the pies at Flipping Pizza better.

“Fresh Ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A family friendly place. The sandwiches and salads are fresh and have great flavor. Servings are generous and priced reasonably. Servers are friendly, polite and efficient. If you prefer a quiet setting, come late in the evening. Peak hours are filled with families and children.

“At at the Falls Church location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Nice seating area (for a plaza restaurant) and pleasant staff - food is ok - not great, but not awful. Would probably go back with kids out of convenience.
