Another place that's a bit pricey however everything I had from there was good. They offer buy one get one free pizzas on Tuesday in their chicken milaneseis to die for. They also have gelato which is a plus and it's good!

This is a reasonably priced Izard and mor restaurant. We ordered a Greek salad, which was good. Romaine instead of iceberg lettuce and a better dressing would have made this first rate. The pizza was close to excellent, but could be improved. The toppings on the pizza we ordered were excellent, balanced, fresh and well executed. However the crust is... More

Some co-workers and I went to lunch at Café Pizzaiolo. It is a nice little café in Shirlington. I had the Philly Cheese Steak and chips. Good food and good service.

The NY-style pizza is perfect. The staff, and especially the bar staff, were great. If you are nice, they will let you taste a beer before you order a full glass.

I love this place. Saturday night dinner had $4 craft draft beer, $5 bruschetta (roasted peppers, fresh mozz, good black olives) and $5 calamari apps (light and crisp). Nice crowd, mostly families, a couple football games on. Service was friendly, prompt, attentive but not overbearhing. And the owners are great. Total tab: $55 and a nice tip for 4 teenagers...

We've been here several times, from just two people to nine! They can scoot tables together for larger groups. This location has outdoor tables for warm weather, and an upstairs that has the bar. TV screens on both levels. Fairly extensive menu, with appetizers, pasta, sandwiches, and of course, PIZZA! Good wine and beer selection (inc. drafts/on tap), and good... More

Convenient, nice staff, clean, not too large. Great breakfast menu and the meal was delicious. It is next to a wonderful plaza with a local bakery and lovely gift shop. We have had dinner meals in the past and they too were fabulous.

Found a small but wonderful selection of craft beers for a very reasonable price. We savored a couple of nicely prepared sandwiches served by a friendly knowledgeable waiter. The restaurant could use a good cleaning, there was a slight smell of old beer and the paint could use a solid touch up. Loved the pizza box artwork.

The appetizer (Bruschetta) was excellent, but the pizza that we ordered was not very good. It was called Diavala, was thin crusted and very spicy. I lived in Italy and traveled extensively and never encountered a Pizza that was this spicy and tasted like this one. Do not order unless you like Tex-Mex food!

Cafe Pizzaiolo is a wonderful restaurant located in Shirlington. I went with three friends and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Each of us ordered something different, but the serving sizes were so generous that we shared. I can personally attest to the goodness of at least four Italian dishes on the menu: pepperoni pizza, eggplant parmesan, chicken parmesan, and chicken marsala.... More
