La Bettola's Pizza
This is one of those "where everybody knows your name" kind of restaurant to me. I have been coming here for a few years now and cannot get tired of their menu. This is a small, picturesque Italian restaurant in the buzzing area of 23rd St in Arlington surrounded by other restaurants and a few bars. The place is small and cozy with just a few tables downstairs and a few more upstairs. The wine selection is unique, just one brand but once you get used to it, it comes to your table the soonest you sit in. The usually solitary waiter will always greet you as if you were family or an old friend. . . This is as close as you can get to the old European small local street eating place where you almost feel like you are eating in your own home.
This is our go-to spot for pizza. Their thick crust square Sicilian pizza is amazing! Crispy, chewy, yeasty dough with lots of caramelized cheese. We keep the toppings simple so we can really enjoy the texture of the dough--amazing stuff.
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Crystal City, not sure why all the bad reviews. I always get lasagna and their spaghetti; their pizza is good too. They serve fresh baked bread that's really good dipped in olive oil, and the free appetizer salad is generously portioned.
