Stellina Pizzeria near Union Market was such a hit out of the gate with its pizza dough paninis and and cacio & pepe pies that the founders are opening a second location in Mount Vernon Triangle next year. Restaurateur Antonio Matarazzo and Chef Matteo Venini, who first met working at Lupo Verde, are planning a Summer 2020 debut at 508 K St. NW.
