Looking for a good pizza place during our trip to DC area. Came across this little gem. A pleasant surprise. A diversity of pizza choices and very, very good quality and taste. The server was very attentive and patient with our crazy family.

We started off with - my husband, an Italian fashioned & me, an amaretto sour. Both were delish. Then we split the mixed green salad, which was very flavorful & fresh. We finished with the chicken pesto pizza. Highly recommended!

Given the fact the restaurant was filled with patrons, the noise of customers added to the horribly loud piped 'music' made for a horrible atmosphere. One couldn't even try and carry on a conversation with dinner companions, as it was impossible to hear anything over...More

The food was really good. We had calamari and I ordered a ham and pineapple pizza and my co-workers had a meatball sandwich. The Italian sangria was really good. The only negative was our waiter was not very good. He was very nice but wasn’t...More

We had the Korean BBQ pizza, which featured picked vegetables and Korean-style bulgogi beef. I enjoyed it, while my wife thought the vegetables could have been a little bolder. The crust was perfect, one of the few places in the area to really get a...More

My overpriced pizza was pedestrian. I see little reason to recommend Lena’s unless there are no other choices.

From moment of walking in we had good service. Ate pizza and salmon. I requested salmon to be done well and chef was spot on (delicious). They have good corner location and I can imagine in warm weather how busy the outside patio must get....More

Some of the most original pizza I have seen on a menu lately and eaten in recent times and in my opinion the Diavolo is one of the tastiest pizzas I have eaten in years, especially after adding just a light layer of pepper. Wonderful....More

Lena’s menu will feature authentic Neapolitan pizzas straight from our wood burning oven. The dough will be made using the finest double zero flour and pure spring water; the toppings will be the finest available anywhere. Other amazing mouthwatering Italian specialties and salads will also have a home on our menu. Food that is just like your grandmother’s cooking…if your grandmother is from Napoli!
