From an email:

“Chef Nicholas Stefanelli and team are excited to launch CODA, a new ghost pizzeria concept out of Officina at the Wharf (1120 Maine Ave, SW.) CODA is inspired by the local corner Italian pizza & sub shop Chef Stefanelli grew up on and worked at, combined with the street food and experiences of his travels throughout Italy- from the Roman Alimentari to the arancini of savia pasteceria in Cataina.

When the bakery at Officina is “dark” the CODA ghost concept comes to life, taking over the decks of the baker’s ovens to produce the pizzas, toast the bread for the specialty sandwiches and bake the pasta al forno.

Coda takes its name from the Led Zeppelin album which houses one of Chefs favorite songs, the remake of Bob Johnson’s Traveling RiverSide Blues.

Orders are now available from 4pm-9pm Wednesday to Sunday through the Winter season via Doordash & Ubereats. Or pickup at the Mercato at Officina at the Wharf.

Parma Pizza (10 inch round)

Mozzarella, parmigiano, arugula, prosciutto di parma, and lemon. Napoletano style. $16.00. *Also available in a 40 inch rectangle to serve 4-8 people. $48.00
