The new 60-cover site will launch alongside a dedicated e-commerce site created by founders Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo, which will offer a new range of craft beers made in partnership with Brighton brewery Laine Brew Co.
As with Zia Lucia’s other restaurants, the Wandsworth menu will offer four different pizza doughs including traditional white flour; wholemeal; vegetable and charcoal; and one made with gluten-free flour.
Pizza options will include the Napoli with tomato, mozzarella, anchovies and capers; the ortolana with tomato, mozzarella, courgettes, aubergines and peppers; and the spicy burrata with tomato, mozzarella, burrata and spianata salami. The menu will also feature a selection of Italian-style starters, salads and desserts including mortadella with focaccia; rocket with asparagus, tomatoes and parmigiana; and homemade tiramisu.
Vescovo and D’Angelo opened the first Zia Lucia in Islington in 2016, and subsequently established sites in Kensington and Boxpark Wembley in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
They launched a fourth restaurant in Aldgate East back in February.
Last year the pair also entered London’s burgeoning, accessibly-priced pasta restaurant scene with Berto, which opened next door to the original Zia Lucia restaurant on Holloway Road.
