From a press release:

“Lupo Pizzeria offers innovative, elevated Italian street food that promises to give Washingtonians a taste of Italy that defies expectations of the cuisine. Chef Juan Olivera’s entire menu is made in-house, including all their dough, with ingredients imported directly from Italy. Menu highlights like the “Lupo Marino” (pizza with dashi tomato passata, calamari, prawns, mussels, and handmade squid ink dough), the “Seaweed Frittelle” (savory fried seaweed doughnuts dashi tomato passata), and even dessert pizzas (like the Tropicale Pizza w/ coconut cream and grilled pineapple) provide a surprising twist to the concept. Lupo Pizzeria also features an expansive beverage program from Beverage Director Brian Kominsky filled with Italian wines, beers, and Italian cocktails with fresh herbs and seasonal ingredient highlights.

The interior of the Pizzeria replicates a quaint Italian street with white brick walls, brighted painted house windows, and even a hanging clothesline across the ceiling to complete the alfresco feel. As a whole, guests can expect a range of dining experiences at Lupo Pizzeria, from a quick bite and beverage to a full course meal and wine tastings that transports visitors to Italy with every carefully curated bite.
