We had the prosciutto and arugula pizza and the rigatoni bolognese. It was fantastic! Our bartender, Alfonso, was very friendly and did a great job! We will definitely be back!

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

Lena’s menu features authentic Neapolitan pizzas straight from our wood burning oven. The dough is made using the finest double zero flour and pure spring water and the toppings are the finest available anywhere. Other amazing mouthwatering Italian specialties and salads also have a home on our menu. Food that is just like your grandmother’s cooking…if your grandmother is from Napoli! The inspiration for Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza & Tap comes from the Yates family matriarch, Lena. Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza & Tap has been created to provide a gathering place where families and friends can escape their hectic daily routines, relax and commune in an environment reminiscent of the family table that meant so much to Lena, John and their sons.
