Independent pizzeria Zia Lucia is set to bring a taste of the Italian Summer to Chelsea, with the launch of a brand new restaurant and with it a never seen before new Aperol-infused dough.

To celebrate the launch on Thursday 25th July 2024 of Zia Lucia Chelsea, a special edition Aperol dough will be unveiled, the first of its kind in the UK. This orange dough has hints of orange, rhubarb, and gentian, the slightly sweet, subtly bitter, and refreshingly aromatic flavour profile of Aperitivo Hour.

Paired with toppings like mozzarella, fior di latte, wildbroccoli and spicy nduja, the Aperol dough will be available to all diners visiting the new restaurant, while stocks last.

Situated on the Fulham Road, the 46-capacity Zia Lucia Chelsea will feature alfresco seating where diners can choose from the award-winning roster of dough; traditional white flour, wholemeal, vegetable charcoal, and their base without gluten, as well as a choice of toppings such as fiery nduja, spicy spianata salami, truffle sauce, honey, burrata,rich blue cheese gorgonzola and roasted pepperoni.

The menu will also comprise a selection of authentic Italian starters, including burrata fromPuglia, freshly baked focaccia, also available as an Aperol version, salads and homemade desserts including the well-known Zia Lucia tiramisu. Drinks will feature Zia Lucia’s very own beer brand Birra Cabriolè, brewed with Laine Brewery in Brighton, as well as Italian style cocktails such as the Negroni Sbagliato Maxi and wine and prosecco sourced from a small Italian producer.
