How do I love Pupatella.... let me count the ways. 1. That crust - perfectly thin, appropriately charred from the wood-fire oven 2. Fresh fresh ingredients and creative toppings 3. Burrata cheese, when available, can't be beat 4. Margarita and Filetti are the best pizza for Neopolitan purists 5. EVERY PIZZA WE"VE HAD THERE WAS WONDERFUL - and we've had... More

This place is really good. Their pizza is excellent and although I know it is terrible for me, I can't get enough of their fried calzone. It is reasonable priced, and definitely worth the visit. It doesn't look like much, but I can assure you that it will be a pleasant surprise.

Pupatella is just west of Ballston along Wilson Blvd, on the left-hand side of the street as you drive toward Seven Corners. It has two storefronts, but you enter on the right, order and pay for your food, then seat yourself and wait for someone to bring your pizza to the table. Warned about the crowds, we arrived early for... More

We had heard about this restaurant over a year ago but it wasn't really convenient for us so we never made it there until today. When we drove up it looked like a hole-in-the-wall and, honestly, I was hesitant about going in. But OH MY GOODNESS!!! After spending four years in Naples, Italy (quite a few years ago) I felt...

While Pupatella deserves high praise for serving up absolutely authentic Neapolitan pizza it has become a victim of its own success. A recent visit was severely compromised by the restaurant's inadequate ability to deal with a crowd. Customers have to queue to order and pay for their pizza, then wait to be called to a table. After pizza is delivered... More

Just came back from Italy, and this is exactly the same! So fluffy and good! Best if you eat it there. We tried to bring it home, and it lost the wow! When you get it there, WOW! Staff is great, friendly and fun! It's our new Sunday place!

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
