“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

The Merone brothers have brought consistant excellent authentic Italian cusine to their electic northern Virginia restaurant for local residents and those in the 'know'. Foodies should try this place as Antonio and his brothers bring "as close to authentic" Southern Italian food as there is to be had in here in the No. Va. area. You must really try their soups or pastas ... while pizza is the main stay they really serve fresh excellent pasta dishes and soups to die for. Go hungry as their portions are large. Staff is friendly and if your lucky and see Antonio he's as fresh and warm as a slice right out of the oven!!

Ciao.
Buon Apetitio Indeed!

“Best Pizza in NOVA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

I have not eaten anything besides pizza, here, but it is extremely good. This is a go-to spot for me when friends and family come into town.

“Pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Some authentic NY Italian food in a big, very suburban type setting. The dining area is rather featurless and while clean, could use some updating. There are a couple tables outside, which is nice at times, though the view is of the parking lot.

The pizza is good, and subs pretty good. I did not like the pepperoni rolls or calzones, because they just had way too much cheese, and almost no meat. The cheese is good mozzerella, but with such a generous serving size, it was just too much for me.

“Really good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2009

It's a bit pricey ($20 for a large) but I would pay it again for the taste. It was a very large pizza with excellent taste. I didn't stay and eat, but there seemed like a good amount of seating without any noise and it wasn't crowded.

“Pretty good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2008

Buon Appetito should not really be compared to NYC authentic style. It's not a Patsy's / Grimaldi's quality, but it is a pretty good pie.

The restaurant itself is bare bones, walk-up ordering at the counter with plenty of other items on the menu -- which I didn't get the chance to try during this visit.
