Place was packed! It’s great for families, they have games for kids. Happy hour consisted of beers and wine. We had pizza and a calzone. Portions are hearty and everything tasted fresh and delicious. The only hassle is the street parking.Would definitely come back!

Very good pizza, good selection of beers, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices and I think on Tuesdays, it's 2 pizzas for the price of one! Walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn.

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!

My wife and I have ordered pizza from Cafe Pizzaiolo many times during the nearly two years we've lived in Shirlington and we've never been disappointed. They have fantastic deals on certain nights of the week, for example, half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays....More

Another place that's a bit pricey however everything I had from there was good. They offer buy one get one free pizzas on Tuesday in their chicken milaneseis to die for. They also have gelato which is a plus and it's good!

This is a reasonably priced Izard and mor restaurant. We ordered a Greek salad, which was good. Romaine instead of iceberg lettuce and a better dressing would have made this first rate. The pizza was close to excellent, but could be improved. The toppings on...More

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.
