“A very good slice in an unexpected place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Went here on election night after it was recommended to us by a friend. We had been in NYC in October and had some very good pizza and fast became pizza snobs. Don's pizza is the closest we've found in Northern Virginia to a real Lower East Side slice, and that's a pretty good compliment. Will definitely be back. Their prices may not be competitive with the larger chain/delivery places, but their product is by far superior.

“Disappointing and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

After reading the great reviews about their pizza and seeing the interesting offerrings on their menu, I was excited to try The Dons'. (Note: they changed their name from Don Corleone's to the Dons') I tried their Four Cheese pizza. It was OK, but by no means a great pizza. Their sauce was bland and the cheeses were skimpy. Overall the pizza lacked much flavor. The thin crust was unispring and soggy in spots. Their website highlighted the use of fresh and high quality ingredients, but it did not come across in the overall flavor. Their pizza prices are on the high side. The salad portions were large, but rather basic for the price. It is fairly cramped inside, but there are also some outdoor tables. No beer or wine served. Plenty of parking in this suburban shopping complex of Southbank.

“NY Style, great flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Real brick oven, flavors blended well in fast, hot oven. Ready to heat slices or order from scratch - both very good flavor and good price. Better than the "thin crust" chain version anytime. Good unique flavors not on the chain offerings.

“Pizza perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Great thin, crispy crust, delicious toppings, and love eating outside. I would say it is the best pizza in the area.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Was not bad, just nothing that is having us come back again. The average rating is not indicating anything was wrong, it just wasn't amazing pizza. We are pizza snobs, so that should be taken into account too.
