The 160-cover restaurant will be the 13th opening across the UK and Italy from brothers Matteo and Salvatore Aloe, who founded Italian pizza restaurant group Berberè in 2010.
Radio Alice currently has two London locations in Hoxton Square and Clapham Common, overseen by managing director Emma King, who co-founded the Gail’s bakery chain.
The Canary Wharf site will feature Matteo’s signature sourdough pizza, made daily with toppings such as ‘nduja; courgette ribbons; peppered salami; blitzed peppers; aubergine; and lightly smoked prosciutto. In addition, a summer menu will feature pizzas topped with buffalo mozzarella from a small herd of Italian rare breed buffalos.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to be opening at Canary Wharf in such a bustling location,” says Matteo.
“We’re looking forward to being a friendly oasis where you can enjoy fast, organic sourdough pizza, cold wine and super music.”
The restaurant, which is named after a pirate radio station based in Bologna in the 1970s, will launch in July with an event that will be broadcast across its own web radio station, which plays in each of the pizzerias from London to Italy.
