Pizzeria Orso in Falls Church Debuts Brunch-Inspired Pizzas, Saturday, April 9th

Available all day on weekends only

Beginning this weekend on Saturday, April 9th, celebrated neighborhood Italian pizzeria and restaurant Pizzeria Orso (400 South Maple Avenue, Falls Church, VA 22046; (703) 226-3460;; @PizzeriaOrso) is debuting their new line-up of brunch-inspired Neapolitan pizzas thanks to Chef Bertrand Chemel and team. This new assortment of pizzas will be available all day every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) moving forward.

After securing the prestigious VPN certification just months after taking over the culinary creativity at Pizzeria Orso, Chef Bertrand Chemel - also the Executive Chef at sister restaurant 2941 in Falls Church - wanted to bring a bit of brunch inspiration back to the menus for guests to enjoy during their weekend dining experiences. Chemel is excited to share these creative new pizzas showcasing the freshest seasonal ingredients, unique products from local artisans, and invite guests to enjoy delicious and creative comfort food-focused elements. Guests can enjoy these new pizzas in-house hot and fresh out of Pizzeria Orso's custom volcanic brick oven, or order them to go for curbside pick-up.
