I feel like I have just eaten pizza for the very first time. No other comment necessary. Dang, it won't let me just say that. Let's see...how about this crust, this sauce, these toppings were unbelievable. DO NOT TRY TO TAKE THIS PIZZA HOME. It will not travel.

We have been to Pupatella's several times in the last 6 months - love it! The meatball pizza and sausage pizza are favorites. Gluten free meatballs and grilled brussel sprouts and apple salad with balasmic are delicious gluten free options.

The pizza is the best you can get around Arlington. The seating, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

I was here the other day for lunch. We had the sampler appetizer, the margarita pizza and the meatball panino. All were very good. I will definitely go back. The prices were reasonable.

I stopped by this place to get pizza while staying at Sleep Inn and Suites. Great pizza and great atmosphere, feels like a family style pizzeria.

I recently returned from my first (and probably not last) visit to Pupatella. My friend - who had also recommended the place - and I met there for lunch. Although we arrived after 12pm, we still managed to beat the lunch crowd. By the end of our lunch, on a weekday, the dining room was pretty full. The "system" at... More

I don't know how exactly I won the lottery to get Pupatella in my backyard - I can walk to it. But I thank my lucky stars. If this place goes out of business, it's not my fault! We probably eat there every other week. First the pizza - they make it Neopolitan style - thin soft crust with the... More

A friend and I got there at 11:30 for lunch and it was packed by 12:30. Forget it at night unless you prepared to wait for a table. I do take out at night if I am near by. Impossible to get through on the phone during dinner time. I love the arrancini and of course the pizza. Prices are... More

I am obviously from Naples Italy and live in the US, therefore tremendously frustrated with American pizza... until I found Pupatella. I live about 4 hours away from Arlington and still sometimes I make it a day excursion to come and eat here. I love all about this place and it reminds me of the comforts of home.. I recommend...

The pizza is certainly better than the chains with more variety in the toppings, but it is a little pricey. It comes out of the oven hot, crispy and smoking from the oven. It does not travel well so eat it at the restaurant. It gets soggy before you can get it home. The restaurant itself is very basic. Serve... More
