Now That's Authentic

If you've ever traveled in Italy, and recognize truly authentic pizza, then you will love Pupatella. This little hop spot was a tiny restaurant when it opened a few years back. Nowadays, it's a booming business with the same great food as always. If the Burrata Pizza is on the menu when you visit... read more

I just recently heard about Pupatella from a friend. Now, this review is going to be short: the pizza is freaking AMAZING (see picture). That's for one person and you think to yourself: "There's no way I can eat all of that." But this isn't like any other pizza you've ever had. The crust is so amazing and light, and... More

After reading that this was the top pizza place in the State of Virginia, we had to try it out. So on a recent trip to the D.C. area for my wife's job, we went here for dinner with our sons. This pizza is the real deal. It reminded us of the pizza you can get at one of the... More

Was in Italy this past summer and thought I would have to wait to have authentic Napoli pizza until I returned. Thankfully I was wrong!!! Every bite was a taste trip back to Italy! Did my homework before my trip to DC and Pupatella got a 100!!!!

Summer brings a lot of people to this popular pizza place but the pig [proscuitto] and fresh figs, summer fare, is worth a special trip. Eggplant and red pepper is excellent, too. All pizzas are good. Gelato is delicious. Chose wines carefully. Great family spot; I enjoy it with my family.

Pupatella's is easily one of the best pizza places in DC. The pies, which are perfectly sized for one hungry person, are the most authentically Italian pizzas we've had outside of NY. The crust is thin and crunchy in the middle and doughy on the sides. The ingredients are really freash, the home made tomato sauce has real tomatoes in... More

Here is how I now measure a pizzeria after going to Pupatellas... if I even hear the word "Margerita" my mouth starts to water. It is that good! Be prepared for long lines, somewhat rushed service, and on a 10 degree night, a drafty atmosphere. BUT - it is absolutely the best authentic margarita pizza I have ever had. I... More

Can you review a restaurant you've never been to? You can if you've tried to go 3 times and each time been told it would be over an hour wait. The first time, I was told by a staffer that I should look around, find a table of people who looked like they were nearly finished, and wait right next... More

I lived in Italy for about 11 years, so I know my pizza and this place is the real deal. While seating is super limited and it can be a fight for space on popular hours, Pupatella is the best pizza, consistently, I have eaten in the D.C. area. It is fresh, it is prepared to-order and delivered piping hot... More

For such a creative little trendy pizza place I was surprised that they don't offer a gluten free crust for at least one choice of pizza! So while my dining partner feasted on a diavilo pizza, I had a plate of brussel sprouts. If the brussel sprouts are any indication of how good the pizza is, it must be pretty... More
