Pupatella has menu posted.

They have published their menu. Looks like it is getting closer. I can't wait for this place to open. Walking distance to my house. Pizza. Ah yeah.

    1. Just read the blog and it says they will most likely be open by the end of next week.

      1. They open tomorrow at 11am. I'll see youse there.

        1. Any reports from today's opening? Would have gone over there myself, but prior plans are keeping me away. Excited to hear.

            Brilliant stuff - a solid step up from their cart, and their cart had damned fine pizzas!

            Immediately on my top 5 pizza list for the DC area.

            5104 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22203

          2. The first thing I thought of as I took my first bite was: do they have a room to rent out next door? After the next bite, I wanted to hug the guy.

            Puputella makes a style of pizza I am not sure anyone else is making in the area. Markedly different from their cart version. The crust is soft, puffy, light. If you get mozzarella, it will be soupy. We tried two pizzas, one with buffalo mozz and the other with goat cheese. Goat cheese doesn't work as well here. Toppings are high quality and mostly a good value. The menu encourages experimentation.

            I easily consider it at the top of DC pizzas, and a highly valuable contribution because it
            strikes its own course.

              I also thought it was great and the proscuitto was really good. Also, the aranicini was really good. They were clearly very excited to be open. I did get my pizza as a take out and I had to trip over a table to get to the pick up counter. Hopefully they clear a better path.
              As a note: they will be accepting credit cards but as of right now, they are still cash only.
