Cafe Pizzaiolo - new contender for best NY style pizza

Jamie D | May 3, 2007 11:36 AM

IMO this new place serves the best NY style pizza in all of NoVa, and would contend with the best in DC. all the qualities your look for are there - crispy yet chewy crust with some grit on the bottom, good sauce, not too cheesy, a little oily. Mrs D and I preferred the NY style over the Neopolitan style, the Neop crust had a strange strong herby taste, detracting from the overall flavor of the pie.
there's a short but good beer and wine list too - including a yummy Nicolis 2003 Testal and my current favorite IPA, Dogfish Head 60-Minute.
The atmosphere is nothing to speak of, like a Starbucks, very family-friendly including game materials for kids. the service can be slow and incompetent, but when your pizza finally arrives, aaah....
