Opening next month, Radio Alice Clapham will serve a similar menu to the first London site, which launched in Hoxton in December. Pizza toppings are added after the base has been cooked, which the restaurant says enables customers to appreciate their full flavours.
Pizzas include aubergine, tomato, smoked scamorza cheese, basil; speck, gorgonzola, fiordilatte, honey, walnuts; and a tomato and cheese free option that features beetroot purée, sautéed leeks and black olives.
As with the original, the restaurant will serve its bag and box house wines from Libera Terra, a charity set up to return reclaimed mafia land into sustainable organic farms, as well as a small selection of beers and spirits.
Radio Alice takes its name from a pirate radio station that was set up in Bologna in the 1970s that ‘gave a voice to whoever wanted to be heard’. It is the brainchild of brothers Salvatore and Matteo Aloe, who operate the five-strong, critically acclaimed Berbere pizzeria concept in Italy, and is backed by the Azzurri Group, which is behind the Italian high street restaurant brands ASK Italian, Zizzi and Coco di Mama.
