Little Italy on Wheels to Launch in DC

WASHINGTON DC – Little Italy on Wheels will be opening their window for lunch service in the district on Tuesday, September 3rd. To celebrate their grand opening, they will be passing out free samples of their fare – including spaghetti with handmade meatballs and herb-infused garlic bread. There will also be a raffle for food related prizes, including a grand prize of 3 free meals (3 entrées + 3 sides, salads or deserts + 3 drinks).

Serving areas for each week will be posted on their website,; exact locations will be announced daily via Twitter (@LittleItalyDC) and Facebook.

Chef/Owner Tony Battistello created the menu using recipes and techniques passed down to him from his Noni (grandmother), whose parents immigrated to America from Naples, Italy. The entire menu is made from scratch, and all entrees come with a side of herb-infused garlic bread, baked fresh daily. The mobile restaurateur hopes that his homemade Italian cuisine and keen attention to detail will keep customers coming back for more.  “I believe our customers deserve the same high-quality food and professional service they would expect from a nice brick-and-mortar restaurant.”

Chef Tony and his wife, Dana, built the food truck themselves over this past year. “Building the mobile kitchen, while difficult, was an extremely rewarding endeavor. Dana and I are very excited to start service, and to share this little part of ourselves with our customers.”

Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
