“Will ruin you for all other pizza! And meatballs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We have been to Pupatella's several times in the last 6 months - love it! The meatball pizza and sausage pizza are favorites. Gluten free meatballs and grilled brussel sprouts and apple salad with balasmic are delicious gluten free options.

“Great Pizza, Horrible Seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The pizza is the best you can get around Arlington. The seating, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

“Great Pizza and Aranchini”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I was here the other day for lunch. We had the sampler appetizer, the margarita pizza and the meatball panino. All were very good. I will definitely go back. The prices were reasonable.

I stopped by this place to get pizza while staying at Sleep Inn and Suites.
Great pizza and great atmosphere, feels like a family style pizzeria.

“Numero Uno Pizza In Arlington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I recently returned from my first (and probably not last) visit to Pupatella. My friend - who had also recommended the place - and I met there for lunch. Although we arrived after 12pm, we still managed to beat the lunch crowd. By the end of our lunch, on a weekday, the dining room was pretty full.

The "system" at Pupatella is that you put in your order at the front - generally a personal pizza and a drink - and then seat yourself while they bake your pizza. For a pizzeria, service was (almost surprisingly) friendly. Everything is actually pretty simple, so you will not be in awe of decor or even the aesthetic quality of the pizza. The toppings on the pizza (I ordered a sausage and onion pizza) were not particular spectacular, but they did work in unison, especially with the crust. The crust is the key; it's quite tasty, relatively thin, baked in a wood fire oven. I could imagine just ordering the crust with no toppings and being satisfied.

For its price point, Pupatella is probably one of the best pizzerias in Arlington, a good place for a casual lunch/dinner. They are located a short drive (or even 10-15 minute walk) west of Ballston on Wilson Boulevard.
