Located between a gas station and a 7-11, Pupatella may not look like the home of the best pizza in Arlington. But don’t let appearances keep you out - this place is the real deal. If aliens ever landed in Ballston, we’d present them with one of their meatball pizzas as a peace offering. You order order at the register, and while you’re in line, you get a front row seat to the baking process and wood-fired oven. It will look so good that you’ll have to fight the urge to reach over the counter to shake the piemaker’s hands. Takeout is usually our move here, but there are a few seats inside and a nice patio out back. Also, two pizzas get you a half-priced bottle of wine. Schedule that third date accordingly.
