Great pizza, second only to 2 Amy's in DC. DIning room is a bit industrial, but the pizzas are authentic and very well prepared. Great place for lunch after the Falls Church market on Saturdays.

After too long an absence, my wife and I returned to Pupatella and enjoyed what has always been our favorite Neapolitan-style pizza in the DC area. It's no fuss, and no muss, which is why we like it; line up with the crowd, place your order while the crew cranks out amazing pizzas and side dishes and hope a table... More

These days there are quite a few good pizza places in northern Arlington. However, none of them offered an authentic Neapolitan style pie - until now. Pupatella is located in an unassuming small strip mall. Even walking up to it I was dubious that it could be as good as the reviews claimed. In short, it was. We ordered a... More

If you enjoy Neapolitan pizza, Pupatella's is a must. We ordered a Pepperoni w/Mushrooms pizza, a Pepperoni pizza, olives, and the #1 salad (arugula, Parmesan, prosciutto, and balsamic vinaigrette, and of course a bottle of red wine. It was just like being back in Naples!! The best Neapolitan pizza I have had in the US!! Effeminately worth a visit. Just... More

There aren't many things that would bring the young professionals from Arlington north out to Arlington south, and even fewer that bring friends from DC across the bridge, so when I heard that there was a restaurant that did just that, I knew I had to find out more. On a recent Thursday I convinced two co workers, reluctantly, that... More

I had high hopes for this place given the reviews. We ordered 2 pizzas. The margherita pizza was surprisingly only lukewarm. Maybe it was undercooked as the crust was very chewy, but I prefer a hot pie with some crispness to the crust. The sauce however was excellent. The pesto sausage pizza was definitely hotter out of the oven, but... More

A basic place with a neapolitan style pizza that is surprising even for a neapolitan. Pizzas are small and overpriced, but the place is worth a visit for those that really miss the neapolitan pizza. Unfortunately, the place is not well kept and seems an american garage. Could be much better.

The pizza here is awesome! The ambiance and decor ... well just concentrate on the pizza. It is in a small strip mall like building off of Wilson Blvd with very limited parking. Fast service and all made fresh, so even if there is a line out the door (and often is) it is worth it. I don't know where... More

The atmosphere is very laid back and informal. The feel of a fast food restaurant, but the food and the service are grand. Value for your money very high. A nice selection of wines, by the glass or the bottle too. I've heard it referred to as the best pizza in DC, but I don't think it is; certainly among... More
