Connecticut-based pizza shop Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana — aka Pepe’s Pizza — is planning to open in the Alexandria Commons Shopping Center (3231 Duke Street) next week.
The pizzeria announced in a release that the Alexandria location, the second in the region after one in Bethesda, Maryland, will open on Monday, July 18.
“Inspired by the look and feel of the original New Haven location, Pepe’s Pizza of Alexandria evokes the original’s comfort, familiarity, and tradition,” the pizzeria said in a release. “The 3,600-square-foot, 100-seat restaurant is visually dominated by the view of its 14 x 14-foot, 104,000-pound oven and the even more significant ‘paddle area,’ where expert pizzaiolos create made-to-order masterpieces on an oak wood table and use 16-foot-long paddles to place them in the oven.”
The menu features specialties like a clam pizza and one that’s a mix of pretty much every type of meat one would expect in the kitchen of an Italian pizzeria. The release also noted that there will be imported and domestic craft beer available.
The location will be open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. seven days a week, with indoor dining and takeout options.
“There’s a special energy and excitement in the DMV that aligns perfectly with our restaurant,” said Sean Barry, general manager of Frank Pepe’s Alexandria, in the release. “The Bethesda community welcomed us with open arms and we are thrilled to soon debut in Alexandria.”
