By far my favorite pizza place. I host a meet up here once a month since they opened. The Pizza is the authentic Neapolitan pizza cooked in a very hot wood fired oven. If the pizza makes it home, it makes for an excellent thin crust pizza when you reheat it in the oven. Don't expect leftovers.

According to Fox, Ch 5, this is the best pizza in Md/DC metro area. We agree, which is why we are regulars. Had the Milano and Nutella pizzas last night.

We came to Pizza CS due to the good reviews on TA and the long wait at Matchbox. Based on my reading after we ate, I now know that Pizza CS makes an authentic Neapolitan pizza and that I don't like that style. The crust is very thin and not crispy. A soft crust in the center is typical of... More

This Place is ok, the pizza is natural which I think is fine. It tastes pretty good and the food takes a short while to get to your table considering that its a fast food place. The ice cream however is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I love the place, it smelled pretty good too. I think its a good place for lunch but... More

We are becoming regulars here. Love everything that we've tried. Service is usually very efficient. Because it was Valentine's day, we had the nutella pizza for dessert--outragious.

I've ordered carry out pizza twice from this place, but would definitely eat in some time; the ambiance is old school pizzeria and they serve beer and wine. The staff is so friendly, and they really care about the quality of their service and food. The toppings are just the right amount - given that they use REAL ingredients, they... More

Sorry to disagree with the majority on this. We found the pizzas bland, and the chefs too sparing with the toppings. The pizzas on the menu don't have much to them, and do-it-yourself pizzas have few options (and they discourage more than 3 on a pizza, which is silly). However - it comes really really fast - 5 minutes or... More

Not much to look at inside, but the emphasis here is on the pizza. Prepared expertly and baked in a super hot domed oven imported from overseas, this is gourmet pizza done right. The ambience of the space does not fit the taste. Great pizzas.

Over the course of several visits to CS over the past 2-3 years, we have sampled several of their pizzas--they have been consistently excellent. I rate them as only VG only because I don't care for the ambiance there, which is more like a deli than a fine restaurant. (Wouldn't go here for a quiet romantic evening--it's not that kind... More

The original pizzeria experience; a simple and honest place to enjoy traditional Neapolitan pizza without making it a serious occasion.Have a glass of Italian wine or Aranciata with your pizza, play a bit of free foosball with your friends and enjoy a full menu of salads and local, old-fashioned ice cream.
