Great NoVA Pizza

Just a quick post, recently there’s been a new pizza place that opened up in Falls Church that finally has some really great wood-fired brick-oven pizza.  It’s called Pizzeria Orso and is near downtown Falls Church (actual address: 400 S. Maple Ave., Falls Church, VA  2204).

Probably not worth the trip for those in DC (you’ve got Matchbox, Pizzeria Paradiso, and 2Amy’s) but if you’re in the Tyson’s Corner area it’s the best pizza place I’ve been to in the area.  I haven’t had a bad pizza there.  Definitely better than Pie-tanza (which I thought would be good but ended up not) and a notch (or several) above places like zpizza or Flippin Pizza Those places definitely have their value though 2 slices and a drink for $5 lunch at Flippin for example.

Succinct review: Almost as good as Madison’s Pizza Brutta but twice as as expensive. Atmosphere inside not quite as nice as it should be but not bad.

  1. Matchbox sucks. Both times I’ve been there, the hostess was rude and wouldn’t let us have drinks at the bar while waiting for our table. She wouldn’t even let us wait INSIDE while it was RAINING. The food was mediocre: the pizza was warm, and the toppings tasted like they had been in a walk-in cooler for too long. The toppings all sort of tasted like walk-in cooler smell, and looked like Oscar Mayer instead of $30 pizza prosciutto. on a third and final visit, the hostess again asked us to wait outside in the rain, again refused our request to have drinks at the bar, so I said to hell with it and we went to Fuddruckers, which is not a good place for a date.
