Pizza Autentica has opened up at Crystal Drive and 23rd Street in Crystal City.
The location is the South Arlington counterpart to the rapidly-growing pizza chain’s Ballston restaurant, which opened in October.
The Crystal City Pizza Autentica will serve breakfast on weekdays, starting at 8:00 a.m. It will remain open until midnight.
In addition to pizza, paninis and strombolis, the store expects to start serving homemade gelato starting next week.
Pizza Autentica should attract a largely workday crowd. So far the restaurant has not applied for a liquor license, unlike the Ballston location, which serves beer and wine. However, the Crystal City location does feature a sizable outdoor patio, which could attract after-work diners during the summer.
