This story comes to us from Angie Meltsner:

Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé: Grand Opening Weekend in Maryland’s National Harbor

Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé: Grand Opening Weekend in Maryland’s National Harbor

It’s all about pizza and Italy at Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé located in the National Harbor Plaza. Fiorella offers over 30 artisanal thin-crust pizzas in a restaurant where the entire dining area was built in Italy. The walls, booths, tables, chairs, light fixtures, art and sculptures were built in La Spezia, Italy. Once everything arrived on site at National Harbor, a team of highly skilled Italian craftsmen, carpenters and masons (who have never before been to America) arrived to do the installation.

Finally something that tastes as good as it looks in the picture. Rita's an ice cream parlor standing by its' mission of providing "Ice Cream Custard Happiness" has become a popular choice amongst District of Columbia and Maryland area residents. Originally started in the summer of 1984, Bob Tumolo, a former Philadelphia firefighter, opened his first store in Bensalem, Pa, deciding to name the then small time ice cream business after his wife, Rita. Initially developing the perfect flavors alongside his mother Elizabeth, the team concentrated on using fresh fruit and natural products in order to provide customer satisfaction.

Has National Harbor Helped Changed The Image of Prince George's County?

Ask drivers from Virginia, who travel into Maryland, and they will tell you it is hard not to notice the beautiful development that overlooks the Potomac River, especially during the evening and night times where the National Harbor is illuminated with bright vibrate colors.  The National Harbor has not only become a destination, located just minutes away from our Nation's capital, but also a symbol of change for a county that has long struggled with attracting large public and private sector employers as well as high to middle-class retail options for its' residents compared to the surrounding counties.
