Pie-Tanza in Falls Church Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: Sit too close to Pie-Tanza's 7,000-pound oak-burning oven and you might risk losing that sweet, sweet 'stache. This fiery inferno is hotter than a Metro train in August, yet unlike the red line, Pie-Tanza churns out delicious, chewy Neapolitan pies with bubbly, caramelized crusts. Get a simple margherita with tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil, or go artisanal with the sausage, onions & peppers made with local hero, Logan's Sausage. The salads and sandwiches are equally stupendous, like the roast turkey and sweet tomato Club Sub. "Whoever has it, loves it and gets it all the time," says owner Ed McKee. With shaved turkey and ham, crispy bacon, fontina cheese, sweet tomato spread, herb mayo and a layer of mesclun greens to assuage the guilt, I wholeheartedly agree. And as colossal as the offerings may be, a meal that ends without spumoni warrants a tongue-lashing from an Italian grandmother. This trio of pistachio, chocolate and cherry ice cream is made exclusively for Pie-Tanza by Great Falls Ice Cream. It's a a tastiest way to temper that rosy, pizza-oven glow.
