FORT WORTH, Texas (February 8, 2023) – Olivella’s Pizza & Wine, the critically acclaimed Roman and Neapolitan-style pizza kitchen, has completed a 1,200-square-foot expansion of its existing space located “on the bricks” at 4910 Camp Bowie in Fort Worth. Its ‘new’ 3,000-square-foot space now offers a full-service dine-in experience that can seat up to 70 guests, a full bar, a sommelier-curated wine list, daily food and drink specials, and online ordering.
Building on its legacy of century-old recipes from one of the oldest pizza families in Naples, Italy, Olivella’s Pizza & Wine won the 2022 Reader’s Choice for “Best Pizza” in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, receiving over 13,500 votes from readers. It offers two styles of authentic Italian pizza – Neapolitan and Roman – created with made-from-scratch cheeses, sauces, and dough. Rounding out the food menu is a wide selection of Italian antipasti, salads, pasta, panini, and desserts. Debuting in March will be a new weekend brunch, with selections such as blue corn waffles, Nutella French toast, breakfast bruschetta, and Italian burritos.
The expanded footprint also has enabled Olivella’s to increase its sommelier-curated wine list. Now boasting more than 60 red, white, and sparkling wines from around the globe, price points range from $18 to $140 per bottle and $8 to $25 by the glass. Its new full-service bar also features house-made red and white sangria, domestic and imported draft beers, and specialty craft-driven cocktails.
The expanded Olivella’s Pizza and Wine in Fort Worth has also added new daily food and drink specials to its lineup, including:
- Monday through Thursday from 3-5 p.m. – BOGO on “Metro” (Roman-style) pizzas; buy one, and get a second of equal or lesser value free
- “Half-price Tuesday” – half-price on all bottles of wine
- “Wine Wednesday” – Special pizza and wine pairings
- “Sangria Thursday” – $10 pitchers of red or white Sangria
- Friday from 3-4:30 p.m. – BOGO special on Metro pizzas
“Over 16 years ago, I teamed up with a fifth-generation pizza maker from Naples, Italy, to bring authentic Italian pizza to Dallas,” said Charlie Green, owner of Olivella’s. “Our Fort Worth location opened in Ridglea in 2016. When the pandemic forced us to downsize, we moved to a carryout and delivery location ‘on the bricks’ of Camp Bowie. We’re thrilled that customer demand necessitated a return to a full-service dining experience for our loyal Fort Worth customer base, and are very fortunate that the space next door became available.”
“We are excited to offer half-price bottles every Tuesday both for dine-in and carryout, which is a great way to explore our exceptional wine list,” said Mike Lestingi, VP of operations at Olivella’s. “Our Wine Wednesdays are not only budget-friendly, but also provide education on how to pair specific flavors and textures in pizza with the acidy and fruits in wine. And our soon-to-launch weekend brunch will be truly exceptional – some have said our Blue Corn Waffles with fresh fruit cannot be matched. We invite all of Fort Worth to join us and see what the fuss is all about!”
Since its founding, Olivella’s Pizza & Wine has gained notoriety among both local and national media and is consistently ranked among the world’s best, as it was named “Best Pizza in Texas” by USA Today, was recognized in an article titled, “Most Incredible Pizza You’ll Ever Eat,” as published in Every Day With Rachael Ray, is a three-time “Best Pizza” winner by the Dallas Observer, and voted “Best Pizza” by the readers of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
