Tony's Pizza Fair Lakes - Best I have had in NoVA

Lowbar | Feb 22, 2005 07:18 PM

I'm banished out to Fair Lakes for the time being and I ate over at Tony's for lunch today. I have had Tony's before, and loved it, but I don't think I really appreciated it having come back from living a couple blocks from Bronx Pizza in San Diego (which might be my absolute favorite place in the world for new-york style outside of nyc...they key, they say at Bronx, is using pure bottled water for the dough). Now that I am further removed from my unlikely Southern California pizza heaven, my rediscovery of Tony's was a real treat. Proper amount of cheese and sauce, and superb crust.

They have some sicilian pies, ziti pies, all the gimmicks, haven't tried those and probably never will...but the tomato/basil slices I had for lunch were extraordinary. Stick to the basics.

Having been on somewhat of a pizza binge recently...I have eaten Italian Store, Lost Dog, and Z pizza all within the last few days...and none of them come close to Tony's in my book. Maybe I caught tony on a good day, maybe I was just in the right mood...who knows...but it was seriously great.

As we all know, people have so many prejudices about what makes a "good" pizza that it is impossible to find one that pleases everyone...but if you are a fan of ny style pizza, and are in range of Fair Lakes at lunch time, you should at least give this place a try.
