Reviews From Around the Web:

“Great family atmosphere, amazing food, good service, and very nicely priced. Homemade pasta is out of this world! Anything that comes out of the wood-fired oven is outstanding – wings, Brussel sprouts, pizzas, etc.” -Chuck Hughes

“Always good food and great service. No chain food here, handmade pasta and the best wood-fired pizza. A true gem!” -Shelley Bain

“The best Pizza in the area for sure, in my opinion, the best pizza ever. Prices are very reasonable and new owner turned around quality to be top of the line. They do free delivery too.” -BK Simendic

A little over two years ago, we sold a Neapolitan wood-fired brick oven to Baronessa Italian Restaurant in Rockville, Maryland. Recently, we went back to see first hand how things are going. We talked to the Head Chef and Co-owner, Angel Mendoza, to see how he’s been enjoying his oven. When asked about what he enjoys cooking the most, his response was, “Besides my number one passion of cooking pizzas, I also cook all sort of dishes like, Charred Brussel sprouts, our signature wings, meatballs, and we bake our own bread. There’s an unlimited list of things I do with this oven… wouldn’t have survived in this business/location without the wood-fired Marra Forni Oven.” The three he appreciates most about the oven are that is can be used for “multipurpose”, it’s “efficient”, and it’s“practical”.

Baronessa Italian Restaurant has thrived over the past two years, largely in part due to the quality and absolute freshness of their ingredients, and the consistency of the food. This without questions separates them from the rest, along with the fact that they are always willing to please their customers, no matter what the request is. Customer satisfaction is their number one priority.
