Been meaning to try this little hole-in-the-wall for awhile now, but twice we stuck our heads in, and it was too long of a wait to stay. Well third time was the charm, and Pupatella's pizza is well-worth the wait! Amazing and original flavors paired with their wood-fired oven crust, makes for one delicious pizza pie!

Badly organized. We went on a Fri night at 7, and it took 1 and half hour to get our pizza. No pizza is worth such a long wait! And the pizzas were half burned. One was barely eatable. At Pupatella, the line is so long that by the time you get your pizza you are so hungry you don't... More

This neighborhood secret is no longer a secret. I love pizza and this is absolutely my favorite pizza EVER! It is always crowded 6-9 pm. It operated a little differently than most places; part carryout and part dining room. First, get in line, order and pay including your wine beer if you are drinking. Second tell the host how many...

Creative menu, friendly staff, reasonable prices...bland crust, malapportioned toppings (hey, it's close to DC), better eaten with a fork. Is it bad pizza? Absolutely not! Is it great pizza. Yes, for Arlington.

I have been here numerous times and I can say I have noticed the difference of quality in pizza on a busy night vs a slow night. It's still amazing no matter what. I highly recommend the prosciutto arugula pizza.

Found out about this from a Business Insider article about best pizzas in the DC area. Went there, and it was just great. A different style, and a funky place. Go check it out. I did, and will be back soon.

Not fancy, but the pizza is SOOOO good. Caprese salad awesome too. Yum Yum :-). As someone said not fast food, but we love it. We come once a month - at least.

Best pizza i've had since Naples. Good beer. Spartan atmosphere, but who cares? Great specials, seasonal pizza with figs and brie amazing.

The only pizza I would pay their prices for is the fig and pig. Fresh figs and prosciutto. Tasty. Other than that one, the pizza is a little overpriced for me.

Expect to wait because there will always be someone ahead of you, that said, the wait is worthwhile. I suggest you look at the menu while you are waiting for your turn to place your order because the choices are all tempting. The dining area is dark and table is sometimes sticky, it is self serve so be prepared.
