Alexandria restaurant featured on NBC Nightly News tonight?

There was a small piece on the NBC Nightly News just now about a restaurant in Alexandria, but they didn't give the name of the restaurant. I'm wondering if any of you know which restaurant they were talking about.

A woman (I believe she is from El Salvador) named Lolita and her husband ran this restaurant, but after an illness her husband couldn't work. Customers now chip in with the chores. They appear to serve Italian food - one of those old customers is a salesman that cooks Italian food - and the pizzas they showed coming from the oven looked rather good.

Any one recognize this place?
