Pupatella is targeting a late fall opening in Reston, according to a company in Reston.
The estimated opening date is “pending any unforeseen issues with buildout and inspections,” the company representative told Reston Now.
Construction began in early 2020 after The Pizza Hut, which first opened in 1977, closed its doors.
Pupatella, a Neapolitan pizza restaurant, announced had originally planned to open earlier this year.
The 2,700-square-foot restaurant will be located at 1921 Wiehle Avenue. A patio for outdoor planing is also planned.
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.
