About Us 

 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. 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.
