Zia Lucia, the experimental neighbourhood pizza restaurant has announced it will open in Brook Green in late January next year.

Following the launch of a first site on Holloway Road, near Islington, last year, the two founders Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo will now take their “authentic Italian neighbourhood pizzeria” to a second site in residential west London, an area in which the owners used to live.

Zia Lucia’s will bring what it calls “unusual 48-hour slow-fermented doughs,” to its new west London location. For the launch month (February, presumably), the restaurant will add a limited edition, unspecified green vegetable dough to the menu, which will be named after their new neighbourhood, the ‘Brook Green Dough.’ It is said, again without specifics, to be a “healthy winter addition” to a “constantly evolving pizza selection, with playful and experimental doughs” which will be regularly added to the menu by Zia Lucia’s pizzaioli.

The wood-fired pizzas at Zia Lucia Brook Green will be priced from £7 — £11 and will feature some classic — as well as some not-classic — Italian toppings, available on four fixed doughs, plus the aforementioned green vegetable special:

  • Traditional white flour
  • Earthy wholemeal
  • Crisp gluten-free
  • Dramatic vegetable charcoal black base

Toppings will include the spreadable spicy Italian sausage, nduja; hot spianata salami, truffle honey, burrata, gorgonzola and a vegan butternut squash cream. Brook Green, be ready.
