Price Details: Neapolitan pizza, $8.95 to $13.95. New York pizza, $8.50 to $11.95.
There are two reasons to come to this cheery Crystal City eatery: pizza and pizza. Larry Ponzi serves it two ways, both worthy.

The ultra-thin Neapolitan pies (small $8.95, large $13.95) don’t need much beyond fresh mozzarella and basil. The slightly thicker New York pizzas (small $8.50, large $11.95), with shredded mozzarella and a sweet-spicy sauce, are a perfect base for pepperoni, hot Italian sausage, or mushrooms.

You can get pizza to go, but the wide array of board games might entice you to snag one of the tables and a Scrabble board.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
