Paisano’s Pizza Coming to Market Square at Potomac Yard

Fairfax-based Paisano’s Pizza is coming to the Market Square at Potomac Yard development (3650 South Glebe Road), just south of Crystal City.

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.

    Having Tony’s Pizza would be MIUCH more exciting. No comparison. When it comes to pizza it’s always the small local that crushes national chains when it comes to quality of pizza. I have yet to have excellent pizza from a national chain–which is where they are supposedly heading.

      I agree, but at least they are still small-ish and non-franchise at this point. Think of the original several Five Guys vs. the cookie-cutter ones that are everywhere now.

    Their pizza stinks but their subs are amazing. Lived off Chicken Paisano subs at GMU. They also delivered beer, big plus

      Actually, the company is applying for a beer delivery permit for the Arlington location as well. That should win over some customers.

          It wasn’t lost dog type selection, the one in Old Town Fairfax had bud/bud light/miller lite/heineken… maybe they can get a little more
