(Updated at 10:40 a.m.) Pupatella Neopolitan Pizza is officially serving up its signature Neopolitan pizza in Springfield. 

The Arlington-based business opened at the Old Keene Mill Shopping Center at 8434 Old Keene Mill Road yesterday (Tuesday), according to Pupatella Chief Operating Officer and partner Michael Berger. (Correction: This article previously said the business was in Springfield Plaza.)

“We will open with limited hours for the first few days,” Berger told FFXnow. 

This week’s hours run from noon to 3 p.m. and between 5 and 9 p.m. through tomorrow (Thursday). After that, the restaurant will have regular hours from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

With a full round of funding, the business has been rapidly expanding in the area, most recently with a location at the Mosaic District in Merrifield. The pizza eatery has other locations in Richmond, Dupont Circle, and Arlington. A location in D.C. is planned at 301 Massachusetts Avenue and in Leesburg at 50 East Market Street.

Reston welcomed a new Pupatella in 2020, replacing an iconic Pizza Hut in the area.

In what used to be storage space for Aslin Beer and Co.’s, a new scratch kitchen concept developed by Aslin’s co-founders is brewing. 

IZZI — a restaurant that offers coffee, baked goods and pizza — is an extension of Aslin in the Town of Herndon. It’s officially a rebrand of the concept that first launched in Alexandria. 

“All of the spots around town are chain, or are missing the thing that would make them a die-hard spot for people to go to,” said Lisa D’Aromando, Aslin’s marketing director. 

Located at 771 Elden Street, the business takes its name from a small bar that co-founder Kai Leszkowics’ parents grew up going to in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. The concept is now called Iezzi’s on 3rd.

We love being a part of the community, especially in Herndon. It’s where we started, so it’s in our DNA. IZZI is that family joint we gravitate towards. We want everyone to come hang out and enjoy the day here,” D’Aromando told FFXnow.

Customers can order items from IZZI’s menu to enjoy in the taproom or the restaurant space. The menu includes specialty pizzas, sandwiches, salads, and shareable appetizers.

Customers can also enjoy the Aslin Coffee bar in the same space, which launched this year.

The concept officially opened over the summer, and the space can fit 120 people. It’s managed by Chef Taylor Gates, who is known for his fermented pizza dough.
