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

I have wanted to try Pupatella after seeing it on lists of the best pizza in the DMV area for years. At the entrance, a helpful employee explained the process - order first, take your number to a table and your food and drinks will arrive. Thanks to all of the reviewers that mentioned the outdoor patio in the rear... More

My favorite pizza in Arlington hands down. Delicious personal pizzas with thin crust and the right amount of sauce. Many simple ingredients with a nice selection of wine available. Fast for dine in or take out. Only difficulty is finding a place to park but this is a small price for such amazing pizza.

4.5 stars. Really good Neapolitan style wood fired pizza. Many toppings, great sauce, homemade mozzarella. We ordered two pizzas as they suggest, one for each of us and two side salads. We brought 2 slices home. Next time might order one pizza and one or two other sides as everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. At first glance,... More

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
