I've been here with a group of friends and we all liked the place and its food. Good amount and price. I recommend meatball pizza, my friends tho said ham one was better.

We've been very disappointed in the lack of good pizza in the area so this is probably among the best if not the best pizza in the Northern Virginia/DC area and we've tried a lot of places. The pizza is outstanding with top notch ingredients, great combinations or create your own. The salads are really good too, haven't tried the... More

Naples it's not, but the pizza is good and pretty thin-crusted. Excellent flavor on the Pizza Margherita, and my companion (a long-time customer) enjoyed his goat-cheese pizza. The pizzas I've had in Naples are so thin-crusted that the Neapolitans roll them up from the tip's slice with a fork and then cut the little rolls for eating neatly. The slightly... More

Pupatellas is certified Neapolitan pizza, and is delicious. The sauce is tangy and delicious. The margarita pizza is a standard and is very good. This is literallly the best pizza you will find. The service is really friendly and attentive too.

If properly cooked, this pizza is fabulous. However, one time they do it perfectly and the next time the pizzas come out so fast the dough is completely raw and uncooked in about three-fourths of the pizza. Dreadful. We mentioned this to the server who although receptive, did nothing to call over a supervisor of chef/cook. On a plus note,... More

Discovered this place around the same time we traveled to Italy for 10 days. The quality and taste of the pizza compares to if not exceeds that of the finest Italian pizza.

Pupatella looks like just another strip mall pizza joint, non-descript signage, very little parking, comfortable but tired furniture but.....wow! Home made salads, Gelato and, of course pizza made with fresh ingredients. Great flavors and decent pricing justify the crowds that sometimes mean a wait for seats. Surprise your visitors with a trip to this genuine Italian delight.

We've been here many times over the years. We love the flat bread pizza and, last time I was there, the delicious brussels sprouts. Can be hard to get in so recommend going early.

I live in NYC and I literally get puppy style excited whenever I'm having to travel south because I will ALWAYS stop and get a pizza at Pupatella. My mother lives in Richmond and Pupatella would actually be our pick up spot for me coming down from NYC in my college years. The closest you can get to Pupatella in... More

Being from Italy, we consider this pizza good compare to Italian standard and for sure excellent compared to US average. The place is very small and usually crowded. They did not accept any European Credit Card but they show VISA and MasterCard circuit. I was very disappointed since I'm using them through out the entire United States unless..The Pupatella!
