Stellina Pizzeria Finally Set to Make its MVT Debut!

Thursday April 21, 2022

As you may have seen in our posts on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook, and after what’s seemed like an eternity of anticipation for our Mount Vernon Triangle community – and surely even longer for the business owners themselves – the long-awaited Stellina Pizzeria within the iconic Waffle Shop relocated to the 500 block of K Street NW is nearly set to open.

This bit of good news has traveled even farther thanks to a recent piece in Eater DC that describes Stellina’s new digs at its “’60s-chic location.” From the article:

Union Market district’s critically acclaimed Stellina Pizzeria expands its “neo-Neapolitan” presence in D.C. with a nostalgic new outpost in Mt. Vernon Triangle on Tuesday, May 3 (508 K Street NW). Chef Matteo Venini and restaurateur Antonio Matarazzo import fan favorites from their 3-year-old Northeast flagship, including cacio e pepe available as a pasta sauce and a flavor for pizza, panini topped with fried octopus and burrata or porchetta, paper cups full of fried artichokes or mixed seafood, and other Italian street foods.

Special thanks to Antonio as well as operations lead Isabella Sarmiento for giving MVT CID a spin around the space earlier this week, which features the spirit of Italian luminaries such as Peppino De Filippo, Antonio de Curtis – or simply Totò – and the incomparable Sophia Loren.

Best of luck to the Stellina team with accomplishing all of the finishing touches in support of getting to the finish line. We look forward to finally welcoming you as the latest tasty addition to #LifeInMVT!
