Growing up in Philadelphia and now making my own pizza on a tile at home, I thought I knew something about pizza. Working from the premise that any primate can sprinkle toppings on a pizza, thus the skill portion is the making of the crust. Maybe it was a bad day for the staff but my pizza tasted as if... More

My husband and I are both Italian, born and bred in Brooklyn, we know pizza! This place is fabulous! No table service, you stand and line and order and then the staff places you at a table. If you have ordered beer or wine, you then go to the bar and show the tender your receipt with what you have... More

i am from New Jersey. Pizza is practically a religion in NJ. Pupatella is a delight in a random location in Arlington. It comes close to real pizza in NJ and Italy! I highly recommend the Neapolitan cheese or the mushroom white pizza which includes Brie, amazing. The best part of the menu, besides good chianti, is the Eggplant Parmigiana... More

This place is totally hole-in-the-wall and kind of sketchy looking for a first-timer. It's located by a 7-11 and run down Safeway. But don't let that stop you! The pizza is the best I've had (and I love my pizza!!) The really simple ingredients and imported pizza kiln are the secrets. The dough is super thin and chewy and the... More

Pupatella is simply one of the best pizza places in the DMV area. Such great pizza choices and all the flavors/toppings/choices are amazing. I've been to this restaurant a number of times and have never been disappointed.

Pupatella is always crowded, especially during prime dinnertime, but despite the loud noise, the ambiance is great. This place has tasteful decor and the pizza oven is incredible. All the pizzas I have had there were delicious, including the nutella one! I strongly recommend stopping by here when you are in the mood for some 5-star quality pizza.

We love this place! It's really busy more often than not, so be prepared to wait a bit for a table. The pizza is terrific. Best in town! It's definitely worth the wait. The staff are terrific - especially considering how busy it is and the tight quarters. Enjoy!!

I can't say enough about this restaurant! It is such a local gem! This restaurant was recommended by a friend--so we decided to give it a try. And wow--I am so glad we did. The pizza was tremendous! You can either order one off the menu or you can create your own. It takes about 10 minutes or so to... More

I have been here before and experienced good service and food. The pizza came out cold and the sauce has gotten skimpy. Not as good as before.
