Real Napolitano Pizza

This is the best pizza in the whole DC area. Started as a food truck, then became a storefront, then expanded to a dining area, then a patio out back. The cooks wear fedoras, the pizzas are divine.

If you go to Pupatella you go for the pizza - it's awesome, authentic, Neapolitan pizza. All ingredients are fresh, the crust is a perfect mix of crunchy/chewy. The waitstaff is pleasant but the ordering process is a little weird. You stand in line, order your pie, find a table and they bring your pizza to you and if you... More

This is a great place to go midweek for some great, reasonably priced pizza. By far best pizza in the area. Friendly staff too.

Don't let the strip mall location chase you away. Perfect pizza with a crunchy crust that still has some chewy elasticity. The prosciutto and arugula pizza was awesome. Fresh ingredients and served piping hot from their Italian oven. There is a constant line but still plenty of seating inside and on their patio because many folks are locals carrying out.... More

Going to Italy spoiled me for pizza, however this spot is as authentic as traveling to the Amalfi Coast. If you are a Pizza snob like me, you won't be disappointed.

We went on a Thursday night And they had $10 off a bottle of wine if you purchased two pizzas. We had the burrata platter which I thought was expensive for the dish. I wouldn't get it again. We also had the chorizo pizza which I found the the chorizo to over power the taste of everything else. The prosciutto... More

I lived in NYC for a year and a half, then I moved to the DC area. Worried I would not find comparable pizza, I did a search an came up with Pupatella. This place is magic. It's hard to get into and there is a long wait for your pizza because they are made to order, but it's worth... More

You enter and order at the counter. Today I got the special "Fig and Pig" pizza (fig, prosciutto, brie, white sauce) for $16. They have bottled/canned sodas and juice, plus beer/wine, or free water set up in the dining room. This is a very casual place and you will see all kinds of people in there. There are limited parking... More

I was so very disappointed today when I visited your restaurant. My one year old daughter has a dairy allergy, so I called ahead to make sure the crust and sauce was dairy free. It is, so we excitedly made plans for lunch there with friends. When we reviewed the kid's menu, there was not anything on the menu that... More

This place is a must!!! A friend of mine introduced me to this place when I lived in Arlington a few years back. OMG, I have been hooked ever since. Every time I come to visit now I make it a point to go here at least once. The pizza is so good. The highlight for me is the wood... More
