Old-school Italian restaurant and pizzeria.

Our Review

Congress charges a pittance for a mediocre cut of meat well enough prepared to be edible, and the rest of the menu seems to follow suit. My steak pizzaiola was marinated in red wine and topped with tomato sauce and a mound of mozzarella; it came with a perfectly baked potato (scorched on the bottom and still moist inside), soup, and a trip to the salad bar, which served fresh fruit and cold pepperoni on top of the standard offerings. It's far from fine Italian, but who can resist a cheap, dim, fake-plant-packed hideout that's half bar? The service is warm and tailored: young ladies dining alone might be served by a gruff handsome charmer in a three-piece, while moms can expect relief from i bambini in the form of a matron bearing so-so pizza. The pies—in varieties that include taco pizza and the Siciliano Special—come thin, pan, or stuffed, and there are plenty of chicken, pasta, fish, and veal dinners as well, all of which are available for delivery.
