We eat at Cafe Pizzaiolo whenever we stay in Shirlington. The pizza is great and they have a decent wine list. It's an unpretentious, comfortable family restaurant with great food and good prices. We always look forward to Cafe Pizzaiolo when we're in town!

Great place for brunch on Saturday/Sunday and even better if you get there on a week night for happy hour. Excellent draft beer choices. Yummy pizza. Large, healthful salads. Make sure you save room for ice cream!

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....More

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,...More
