I eat at Pupatella's every time I'm in Arlington! You've never eaten pizza until you have eaten at Puptella's! My favorite is the mushroom with Gouda cheese & truffle oil!!! Amazing !! Be prepared for a dive looking building next to a Shell gas station, very limited parking, & crowded inside. Worth it! Push your way to the back patio... More

Found out about this place earlier this year, and it's become our go-to place for pizza! The pizza is prepared in an oven that was made in Naples using bricks made from volcanic ash that allow the temperatures to get to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Ingredients such as the flour used to make the dough, the sauce and the buffalo mozzarella... More

Wood fired Neapolitan pizzas with a great selection of appetizers and draft beers. The fried squash blossoms are delicious when available. They always have a nice selection of beers on tap and orders come out quickly despite the popularity they enjoy. Parking is in front of the restaurant which is a very nice feature unusual In Arlington.

Can't go wrong with any of the freshly made pizzas here. The outdoor seating in the back is much more relaxed than within the restaurant. The place becomes very crowded during traditional meal times, so plan to wait.

I specifically recommend the spinach and pine nut white sauce pizza. The spinach salad was excellent. I also liked the red sauce egg plant pizza. The mozarella garlic bread was so-so. I like the patio area in the back of the restaurant where it looks like another area for people to socialize. I like that there are three bathrooms to... More

The service here was very friendly. The restaurant was a bit slow when we got there. We were greeted at the door by a friendly gentleman who later helped us find a table, the ladies who took our orders were super nice, and the lady who took care of our table was nice. We had the Brussels sprouts as an... More

Fun, funky dining experience. I've heard so much about this place and finally tried it. I'm glad they expanded the dining area although it's still small. It's a mix of restaurant and take-out. I think I'd prefer take out next time or try to come at an off dining time so it would be a little quieter. They have less... More

I know Neopolitan Pizza - I was raised in Naples. This place is good!!!! By far the most authentic Neopolitan Pizza I have found in the states to date! Definitely worth the trip and expense.

food was amazing and so was the staff. There was a line out the door when we pulled up, plus pouring rain. We and 10 others stood out the door waiting and it went quick. Sat us down, food came out quickly and it was all good. LOVED. The fried mozzarella balls!

One of the yummiest pizzas I have had in Northern Virginia. They have a wide range of varieties both for vegetarians and meat lovers. A must try for pizza lovers.
