Whatever it is that makes wood-fired pizza better certainly is running overtime here. That and out-of-the-mainstream pizza ingredients -- spanish chorizo, eggplant, spicy salami (which is not pepperoni) lifts Pupatella above the pizza proletariat.

Pizza, Panini, salads, fried and other appetizers. Order and then a hostess with help you find a table, food will be brought to the table. Pizza good, fresh mozzarella, not too greasy. Panini very good as was fried appetizer. Good, fun, family and friends atmosphere.

This is hands down the best pizza in the DC Metro area! I can't explain how great it is. The crust is absolutely perfect! Ingredients are so fresh! Nice wine selection. Even a little cute place to eat out back!

Generally packed with cars and a line that seems to go quickly. We've only done take out and always delicious pizza.

I had been looking for a really amazing pizza place which serves up proper, Italian style pizza. This is the place. The pizzas are all handmade in front of you and they keep it pretty simple but extremely tasty. The only downside to this restaurant is that it is sooo popular you occasionally have to queue, but its definitely worth... More

This was my 2nd visit; the first coming over a year ago. I don't remember if the dough was as chewy last time (it was at the end of a long day and I was very hungry) but I enjoyed its springiness. Our homemade pizzas tend to be crispier and I really enjoyed the difference. The Salad#2 was very nice... More

We were there on friday last week. When we entered the pizzaria we got a little confused about ordering pizza before seating. However my impression about the order system is not the best. They rather placing the people who want to eat in the restaurant first before they take the order. The pizza was delicious, one of the best i... More

I have eaten here several dozen times, over the past 2 or 3 years. The pizza used to be outstanding, but the quality has been slipping. The past 5 times I have been in Pupatella, the owner was not present. During earlier visits, he was almost always there. On the evening of Friday October 30th, the pizza baker was someone... More
