Paisano’s “offers true gourmet pizza, using the finest, most expensive ingredients available,” says the chain’s web site. “Taste the difference for yourself, and find out why Paisano’s has become the top choice of selective pizza-cravers across the Northern Virginia area!”
In addition to pizza, Paisano’s offers pasta, subs, strombolis, wings and desserts.
Owned and operated by James Madison University alum Fouad Qureitem, Paisano’s has been expanding quickly in Northern Virginia. Locations in Tysons, Burke, Springfield and Vienna are all listed under the “coming soon” section of the web site, in addition to the six existing locations.
The chain has plans to eventually expand nationally, according to a 2009 Washington Business Journal article.
No official word on when the restaurant might open, but we project it could be open as soon as this summer.
Update at 1:20 p.m. — Paisano’s is applying for a beer delivery permit for the new location, a potentially unique service for this section of Arlington.
