Independent pizzeria, Zia Lucia, is opening its 4th permanent site in Aldgate East on 7th February 2020 and to celebrate they’re giving you 50% off the bill!
Following on from the launch of the first Zia Lucia in Islington in 2016, Hammersmith in 2018 and Boxpark Wembley in 2019, founders Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo are bringing their latest authentic Italian neighbourhood pizzeria East.
Since its humble inception, Zia Lucia has become renowned for its impressive selection of 48-hour slow-fermented doughs, including traditional white flour, wholemeal, gluten free and a vegetable charcoal black base. Maintaining its ethos of great value genuine Italian food, all pizzas at Zia Lucia Aldgate East will be priced from £7-£12 and will feature fresh, classic Italian toppings such as fiery nduja, spicy spianata salami, truffle honey, burrata, rich gorgonzola and vegan butternut squash cream.
Aptly located in a piazza (roll on summer!), a five-minute walk from Aldgate East tube, the new site will have the Italian charm of all the other restaurants combined.
Featuring wrap-around windows, timber flooring and a rustic wooden pizza bar as well as tiles ranging from dark jewel blue on the bar counter to pale pink on the back wall, the space will be dominated by a huge hand-crafted pizza oven coming all the way from Naples: tiled in white and blue hoops.
Claudio describes the decision to bring Zia Lucia to Aldgate East: “We were thrilled when we found this site: it sits in a gorgeous piazza where customers will be able to eat outside overlooking statues, water flowing, a cinema…it reminded us straight away of our roots and we thought it would match perfectly with our community style dining and moderately priced, delicious traditional food. What we love about our restaurants is the vibe and the atmosphere created by all of our clients: friends, family, business gatherings…Zia is for all!”
Gianluca adds: “Genuine pizza, homemade salads and desserts, paired with locally sourced wines, craft beers and Italian style cocktails and coffees, served in a friendly and relaxed environment is what we are all about! We are constantly overwhelmed by the passion our customers show towards our four pizza doughs: watch out for a new pizza dough, which has been developed for the new opening…”
To celebrate the exciting new opening, Zia Lucia is giving you guys 50% off the food bill from 7th – 13th February.
