Pupatella Pizzeria Aims for Fall Opening in Reston

Pupatella, an award-winning Neopolitan pizzeria, is expected to open by the end of the year.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic stalled plans to open but early 2020 at 1821 Wiehle Avenue, founding partner Michael Berger told Reston Now the restaurant is planning for a fall opening.

“While we are still looking forward to when the community is able to fully enjoy our lively and welcoming dining room, we are also planning for unique ways to further activate the patio and outside areas so everyone feels comfortable,” Berger said.

The restaurant’s planned opening was postponed due to delays in the county’s approval process. So far, a new roof has been installed.

“We are so excited to be getting closer to joining the Reston community,” Berger said.

The 2,700-square-foot restaurant replaces a Pizza Hut which closed late last year.

Enzo and Anastasiya Algarme started Pupatella as a food truck in 2007. The business has been named a top pizzeria, with recognition from The Today Show, The Washington Post, USA Today and the Washingtonian.
