“Good Sangria & Olives, Bad Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

So I was feeling like “Sangria” for my birthday, so I decided to go to “Fire Work Pizza” for couple of reasons, pizza is very good, my daughter is vegan and she was able to make her own vegetable cheese free pizza. The olives we order as appetizer were served warm, the portions were very generous, we order a pitcher of “sangria” but it taste more like the “tinto de verano” we had in Spain last summer, delicious and refreshing, although they put a bit too much ice on the pitcher and since we didn’t drink it fast and the end it was watery.
Coffee was delicious, we order the French press and it was very delicious, once again portions are huge, not complaining just saying
On this very special day I wanted to spend it with my kids, (my 21 year old daughter and my 2 year old puppy) this particular place is dog friend and with plenty of shade in the patio area.
The price is ok and so are the desserts. On the bad part service, our server was a bit unfriendly, the place was not crowed it and she was rushing us, she would disappear for a while and was not very attentive.
I would go back for the “sangria and olives”

“Disappointing -- a lower-crust joint”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We tried this restaurant several years ago shortly after it opened and didn't think the pizza was very good. After reading all the good reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give it another try this week.
The place was packed on a Thursday evening at dinner time which we took to be a good sign. Our server April was very nice -- attentive without being overbearing. That's all the good stuff.
The pizza was just not very good. We ordered a large 'Soprano's. The toppings were just all right and the crust was very disappointing, especially for 'wood-fired', not really much better than Domino's or Papa John's. At $19 it was overpriced even if it had been better.
We will be returning to our favorite local pizza place in the future, Giovannis. They have been around longer, they know what they are doing, and they do it better for a lot less money.

“Yeah you cant go wrong here - unless you dont mind spending $18 per pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I love the Za here. Crust is great - we like it burnt and crispy and if that doesnt happen you can send it back for a bit. Wish the pricing was more in line with other places I like but its one of our go-to places. Better pricing a few new menu items would get us to make it our prime.

“Very Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We ate here recently while in Leesburg for a family wedding. We had a large party (7) and this place was recommended by our hotel. It was a very warm night and we wanted to sit inside. However, it is very small and we were able to be seated quicker outside. It was surprisingly pleasant sitting outside in the shade. There is not much space in which to wait for your table in side the restaurant. The pizzas were all very tasty. The caprese pizza was especially good. The wait staff seemed very busy, as it was a Friday night. We would have liked a second beer, but were never given the opportunity. They were out of the jalapeno popper appetizer that we ordered. I assume they are very busy because they have such good pizza. We would eat here again.

“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Great Pizza.
I organised a work happy hour at fireworks and they did an excellent Job! I would recommend fireworks as a great location to take the team out in a relaxed environment.
The service was great,
The pizza was tasty,
And the beer selection was awesome.
However it would great if Fireworks let large groups of people pay for items individually, trying to split a bill between 16 people is quite a task. A couple people in our team suggested not going there in the future because of this administrative nightmare.
