The first thing I noticed about this place was the brick interior walls - very nice touch. The atmosphere is pretty nice, although I felt it was rivaling Matchbox. Sitting right next to the kitchen, I noticed all the pizzas coming out and the crust looked amazing - puffy and soft. Sure enough, the crust was delicious. We ordered a daring Puttanesca pizza and were pleasantly surprised. It had no cheese and was covered with clams (and their shells), and truly was delicious. I had low expectations after my antipasto appetizer - which was good, for the record, but small and was way too heavily drizzled with olive oil. Who wants to eat a greasy prosciutto? The side bread is flavorless - reminds me of italy...not necessarily in a good way. Pizzas are small too. It is too much for one person but not enough for two people, which I'm sure they ideally structured so patrons would order more appetizers or another pizza. Finally - the price. My antipasto was $10 and it wasn't worth it in my opinion. Pizza was priced pretty reasonably. I am torn on this review because I walked away slightly dissatisfied, yet at the same time I think I would go back. We'll see.

was so pleased to see that red rocks opened a location in alexandria... as a former resident of columbia heights, i missed their delicious overjoyed to discover that the ingredients and overall quality are still top notch... highly recommended! only wish the that pesto and chicken broccolini pizzas (both so so tasty) did not make the new menu... oh well, the draft beer they offer is still as good as any available in old town, so i'll be a regular i'm sure!
