This experience was INCREDIBLE to say the least. The service was awesome, kind workers and the owner was very pleasant. The food was exclusive, exquisite and so perfect. Dessert was incredible as well. Definitely a perfect date night or for a special occasion.

We usually have a good experience, but our server tonight, Maria, seemed like she couldn’t care less about us and frequently disappeared for long stints. We had to ask another, much busier waiter for more water etc because she was nowhere to be found. When we did ask for stuff like more water or Parmesan cheese for our pizza, she seemed annoyed.

My family's favorite every day restaurant. Daughter and I loved our pizza and I tried my wife's Chicken Parm, which was excellent.

A slightly overpriced restaurant with good food. The atmospherics suggest the restaurant is uncertain about its identity---for example, super loud old rock music, TONS of children and very dark lighting. Is it a bar? A pizzeria? Also, our waiter forgot about us at the end, kept us waiting 20 minutes for the check, even though at the start we were swarmed upon by two managers in addition to our sever. A confusing experience overall.

Hi. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We like to think of ourselves as a neighborhood restaurant that serves amazing Neapolitan-style pizzas, plus a wide selection of craft beers from local breweries. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your dishes, but disappointed that we fell short in the service category. We will share this information with our management and hope that you’ll give us another opportunity to impress you with our level of service.

This was our first-time to Lena's and it was a wonderful surprise! A great neighborhood find. The gnocchi and eggplant Parmesan is EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD! We will go back just for those two dishes. The spaghetti pasta, which the make fresh, is also worth the trip. The pizza is very good, but not on par with some of its other dishes. Great place. We will return.

Lena’s is by far the best wood fired pizza joint in Alexandria. I recommend the wings as an appetizer and a Caesar salad alongside your pizza. You can’t go wrong with any pizza, but I tend toward the specialties like the Diavola, Korean BBQ or clam. Expect a loud, lively atmosphere, excellent bartenders, and exceptional cuisine.

We had a wonderful brunch with friends and were not rushed out. We spent 2 hours chatting and catching up. The manager came by to check with us in a positive manner and invited us back as we were leaving. Lena's is a gemming for us.

Great service from the waitress. The timing of food arrivals was a bit off. My pizza arrived long before eggplant parm. My pizza and both salads were fantastic! Eggplant parm was good, but not “great.” Will definitely go back for pizza.

I liked it ok, food was ok, but nothing to write home about; the price for food was exorbitant for what we ordered for lunch, $80 for two people and the servings were small. Nothing on its "Restaurant Week" menu, which is why we went, appealed to us, so we ordered off of the regular menu. We figure this place must be for tourists who don't know the area or about the bounty of other options in Old Town Alexandria with much better tasting food and reasonable prices. Service was good and the restaurant had a nice layout. However, being a local, I most likely won't be returning.

We were looking for gluten-free pizza in Alexandria after visiting Mount Vernon and found Lena’s. The staff was outstanding, especially our waiter. Happy Hour with $5 martinis and wings plus $10 pizzas made Lena’s a real find! The Parmesan wings were hot and crispy. We really liked both the New England pizza and the meatball pizza. The GF pizza crust could use a little work because it was very thin so got soggy fast, but about half of the specialty pizzas are offered GF. Loved Lena’s for HH.

We lingered for three hours over a leisurely holiday lunch and reunion of old friends, yet we never felt rushed. All of our needs were met promptly but the service was not intrusive. This was my first visit to Lena's, though I'm already a fan of some of the other restaurants in this group (Vola's, The Majestic). This was a good experience. I'd recommend Lena's to a friend, and I look forward to visiting again.
