Pupatella looks like just another strip mall pizza joint, non-descript signage, very little parking, comfortable but tired furniture but.....wow! Home made salads, Gelato and, of course pizza made with fresh ingredients. Great flavors and decent pricing justify the crowds that sometimes mean a wait for seats. Surprise your visitors with a trip to this genuine Italian delight.

We've been here many times over the years. We love the flat bread pizza and, last time I was there, the delicious brussels sprouts. Can be hard to get in so recommend going early.

I live in NYC and I literally get puppy style excited whenever I'm having to travel south because I will ALWAYS stop and get a pizza at Pupatella. My mother lives in Richmond and Pupatella would actually be our pick up spot for me coming down from NYC in my college years. The closest you can get to Pupatella in... More

Being from Italy, we consider this pizza good compare to Italian standard and for sure excellent compared to US average. The place is very small and usually crowded. They did not accept any European Credit Card but they show VISA and MasterCard circuit. I was very disappointed since I'm using them through out the entire United States unless..The Pupatella!

No frills pizza restaurant that's all about the food. It's a simple setup, but the food and service are more than noteworthy. Decent beer menu as well. It's an especially good spot for couples/friends. Parking is out front - albeit limited spaces - might be better to Uber it/take metro bus. Had a great time and enjoyed the food. Takeout... More

Great pizzeria, original napolitan style pizza with great fresh taste. I loved the margherita, they use very good sauce and mozzarella, with fresh basil, as in the original recipe for the queen Margherita! I loved also the burrata and the fried samples platter. I'll definitely come back to try out more of the menu.

Looking for good pizza? The oven is authentic, wood burning and domed. Everything looks clean in the kitchen area. Greeting is quick, as I am just before the rush. Parking is tight, but this is Arlington. The table was a little sticky, but otherwise everything was clean. the light ale on tap matched the pepperoni pizza. (In Italy where I... More

I read a review on Pupatella's and decided to treat my wife to a dinner date. We arrived to find the place packed with a line out the door. The line moved along and we ordered our pizza and then decided to sit at the bar rather than wait for a table. It was a good decision as we were... More
