Pupatella is now popping out pizzas at its newest location in Fairfax County.

The regional chain officially opened at 13619 Route 50 in Chantilly yesterday (Tuesday). Located in Chantilly Plaza, the roughly 3,000-square-foot restaurant is Pupatella’s ninth overall and fourth in Fairfax County.

“The team is thrilled about expanding into this new market in Virginia, and looks forward to continuing investing in the communities that have supported them for years,” a public relations representative said.

Started as a food truck in 2007, Pupatella opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in Ballston in 2010. Since raising $7.5 million to fund an expansion in 2021, the business has launched locations in Reston, the Mosaic District in Merrifield and Springfield, among other sites.

Last May, Pupatella managing partner Michael Berger told FFXnow that the company’s research indicated that it had many fans living in Chantilly, suggesting it would be a good area to add to its roster.

“Chantilly is a wonderful and growing community with many residents who were already loyal guests at our other pizzerias, so it made a ton of sense to bring Pupatella to the neighborhood, Berger said in a new statement. “It’s also a very nice partner location to our nearby Leesburg and Reston pizzerias, so operationally we feel very equipped to ensure that our Chantilly location will serve the top quality pizza that our guests have come to know and love at Pupatella.”

Occupying a standalone building in Chantilly Plaza’s parking lot, Pupatella can seat 86 people inside and 24 people on an outdoor patio. The menu features the chain’s usual Neapolitan pizzas, along with paninis, salads and small plates, Napoli street snacks and Italian desserts.

The restaurant operates from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, though it closes on all major holidays.

Anchored by Gold’s Gym, Chantilly Plaza is also home to a Dollar Tree, the restaurant Sagar Asian Fusion and a Sunoco gas station. A leasing site plan shows two vacant suites in the corner of the strip mall once filled by the pizza shop King’s Bite.
