Called 081 Pizzeria, the restaurant acts as a new age generation of Italian cuisine including innovative Napoli-style tapas dishes.
081 Pizzeria’s carefully hand-picked pizzas boast a light dough with an airy, soft and perfect pillowy crust, finished off with a range of classic toppings, as well as some unusual combinations. The menu features up to 10 pizzas, each made with delicious fresh ingredients imported straight from Italy, such as the Classic Margherita, Truffle Mushrooms, Diavola and Maradona, as well as its signature ‘081 Pizza’ (San Marzano Tomato, Buffalo Mozzarella, Parmesan, Basil and EVO Oil) and the ‘Napoli RMX’ (San Marzano Tomato), Burrata Cheese, Anchovies, Olives and Capers).
081 Pizzeria’s motto is ‘Pizza Is a Serious Thing’ – encapsulating the intricacy, technique, knowledge, and mastery required to make a great Neapolitan pizza. Founder Andrea Ascuiti spent years learning the art of pizza and will be using the leading and only AVNP-approved (Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana) electric pizza oven to ensure the best quality pizzas are served.
Founder of 081 Pizzeria Andrea Ascuiti comments on the launch of 081 Pizzeria: “It’s such an exciting time to open a pizza restaurant despite the challenges posed by the lockdown – pizza has never been so loved in the UK as it is today! With 081 Pizzeria, I’m on a mission to change the perception of the typical Italian pizzerias by reimagining the legendary pizza culture of Naples and bringing it to the capital.”
