“Best Pizza in Northern Virginia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Never listen to any native talk about pizza - they have no clue what good pizza tastes like. Coming from NYC, we know. This is the best in the entire area.

“A nice pizza n pasta place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

Food here is good but the average rating relfects the carry-out atmosphere (you place your order then pick it up when your number is called), crowded room, and basic flavoring of food items. When's there's a crowd it can be hard to hear people you're with. That said, this is a good choice for a quick bite before or after a movie (just across the parking lot). It's relaxed enough for kids though families with toddlers may find the small quarters challenging.

“the worst pizza I've had in ages”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

I went there because of the rating of the place, well ..it doesn'r worth it ..not at all
it's gloomy with this silly oldies italian songs, tables look sticky and everything have a survivor from another era style..
the pizza was one of the worst I've ever had..the mozzarella was a blob and the pizza pan a chewy untasty hogwash

“An Oasis in the Pizza Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Finally, someone in NoVa who can make great NY style pizza! But not only pizza, they also know how to make terrific pasta and Italian dishes as well. And while the atmosphere is casual, there is no doubt that the owner and staff take customer service seriously - even when they are joking around with their customers. So happy they are close to home!

“It's all about great Italian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

Very casual setting. But, great Italian food at reasonable prices. Don't expect a lot of pampering. Do expect healthy portions, served quickly, and with old world taste competitive with the best.
