Stopped here for a late dinner before heading home. Great, fast service and awesome atmosphere. Perfect place for drinks and pizza. The pizza was absolutely delicious. Will definitely visit again!

First time coming here. Recommended by a friend. Beer selection was great with several local options. Diavola Pizza was amazing! Complex combination of flavors and spices. Jordan, the server, provided an expert explanation of options and recommendations. I will definitely be back!

Polenta fries were probably the highlight, but the pizza and the calzone were definitely just average.. and when considering the price, just not worth it. I had a single glass of wine that was the smallest thing I’ve ever seen (in a weird test tube...More

We're staying in Alexandria so it was about a 10 minute walk - worth the trip. We had a Margherita pizza & pepperoni pizza & the tomato mozzarella appetizer - all of it was super yummy!

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. Lena's offers weekday happy hour (M-F, 3-7pm), weekend brunch with a Bloody Mary bar, Meatball & Martini Mondays (a steal of a deal on both!), half off wine on Wine Down Wednesday, and select 10" pizzas for just $10 after 10pm everyday!
