Voted Best Local Restaurant by TimeOut , featured in the global foodie guide Where Chefs Eat, awarded Best Pizza in London by Metro, Evening Standard, Country & TownHouse Magazine, Time & Leisure Magazine, Secret London, Conde Nast Traveller, Hot Dinners, Zia Lucia is a neighbourhood pizza brand bringing 4 types of dough to London.
Zia Lucia brings Londoners a new way to enjoy pizza. Their queue-generating special selection of doughs, unique in the London pizza scene, combined with a flair for real Italian community style, make Zia Lucia a distinctive experience for pizza lovers across the city.
Zia Lucia’s unique variety of Italian 48-hour slow fermented doughs are inspired by ancient traditions brought from across Italy to London. The recipes range from the traditional flour dough to an unusual vegetable charcoal black base, from a healthy wholemeal option to special dough made without gluten. The menu at Zia Lucia continuously evolve to include new experimental doughs, following the creativity of Zia Lucia’s formidable pizzaioli.
Zia Lucia, which translates as 'Auntie Lucia' is run by a team of passionate Italians. Founders, friends and islington residents, Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo have created Zia Lucia with the help of family and friends. Inspired and named after Gianluca’s Auntie Lucia: a warm, generous figure in her family and community in Rome, these important values are recreated in this neighbourhood pizzerias.
Priced from £9-£12, the wood-fired pizzas feature fresh, classic Italian as well as innovative toppings, all available on the four types of dough. The menu also features the signature Arianna pizza, with honey, truffle oil, fresh Italian sausage, gorgonzola and mozzarella – ideally paired with their black vegetable charcoal dough.
Zia Lucia opened its first restaurant in Islington in 2016, and in light of its success it has now pizzerias in Aldgate East, Hammersmith and Wandsworth.
Founders Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo are delighted to be bringing their authentic Italian flavours and flair - as well as their four renowned and queue-creating pizza doughs - to Boxpark Wembley.
Claudio comments: "Genuine and moderately-priced pizza using top quality ingredients, served in a friendly and relaxed environment is what we are all about! We are constantly overwhelmed by the warmth of our customers and the passion that they have for our four pizza doughs: we are excited to be baking our 4 doughs in Wembley"
Gianluca adds: "We were thrilled to be part of this fabulous food hub which is not only a great asset for the crowds that travel to Wembley for concerts, sports and events, but is also a great contribution to the local community”.
