5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Not fancy, but the pizza is SOOOO
good. Caprese salad awesome too. Yum Yum :-). As someone said not fast food, but we love it. We come once a month - at least.

Best pizza i've had since Naples. Good beer. Spartan atmosphere, but who cares? Great specials, seasonal pizza with figs and brie amazing.

“Fig and pig!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

The only pizza I would pay their prices for is the fig and pig. Fresh figs and prosciutto. Tasty. Other than that one, the pizza is a little overpriced for me.

“New York Style Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Having grown up in an Italian neighborhood in New York, I have district pizza preferences- a dough with air pockets and a bit of char, sauce with low acidity and an appealing taste and cheese that is tasty and stringy. Pupatella meets the test. My wife and I split a pizza for a light dinner. The specials each week are a pleasant adventure. I am also a big fan of the eggplant pram--just like my aunt made when I was a kid

“Over-rated and over-priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

My friend and I decided to try Pupatella because of the highly rated reviews. We ordered one Margherita pizza and a can of soda for $14! You take a number and the server will bring it to your table. You have to get your own cups and clean up afterwards. The pizza was about 12" round. Half of the pizza crust was burnt black. The center was too soggy and chewy. The pizza topping had a nice flavor but not enough cheese. They sell Italian-style donuts at lunch (see the website for photos under the heading "Specials"). They cost $3 each and there's absolutely nothing special about these donuts--it's 98% dough. You only get 1 teaspoon of filling. This is the honest truth. I was expecting a lot more filling. I ate the 1 teaspoon of Nutella filling and threw out the rest. Photos can be deceiving. Please don't waste your money or calories on these so-called Italian donuts. Another problem is the lack of parking. Get here early or else you'll have to park in the Safeway parking lot across the busy street.
