A new famous Neapolitan pizza joint is coming to London
Pizza made from a family recipe dating back to 1923 is about to hit London.
Directly from those who know Naples best, Quartieri will be an authentic Napoletana pizzeria opening in Kilburn spring 2017.
The pizzaioli Napoletani will be using flour and grain that has been milled in the traditional way, slow risen with minimal yeast creating truly authentic pizza from its homeland.
The menu will be divided into four sections; antipasti, la storia (the classics), la innovazioni (Quartieri specials) and of course dolce. To start, a selection of frittura will be on offer including crocchette and arancini as well as bruschetta and buffalo mozzarella with tomato.
Guests will be able to see the pizzaiolos’ kneading, flipping and baking their pizza directly in front of them, whether they choose a classic such as Marinara or Puttanesca or a pizza inspired by modern Naples like the Costiera Amalfitana made with lemon or Crema di Pistacchio.
Pizzeria Trianon Vomero is not only famous in Naples for the taste, but also the size of the pizza. Quartieri will bring this tradition to London by offering all pizza as ‘cartwheels’, as the perfect sharer.
To finish, a selection of sweet pizzas will be on offer as well as artisan gelato from Gelupo in London and cheeses from Campania.
Inspired by the energy of the city, the design and feel of Quartieri will be warm and vibrant. With a palate of cooling blues, berry reds, jewel green and brushed brass, the space will make use of geometric shapes, creating a contemporary take on 1960s Naples.
In keeping with Quartieri’s ethos, the materials used will be largely organic or in their natural form, with bricks, concrete and wood as the backbones of the space.
At the heart of the restaurant will be the flash flame pizza oven, handmade and in keeping with Ernesto Agliarulo, the 5th generation pizza oven maker from Naples considered the best in his field, which is made specifically to keep the perfect temperature to give the pizzas an overall and even bake from top to bottom.
Quartieri will be serving pizzas and plates showcasing the highest quality produce and recipes from the earth and city of Naples. The produce will be largely organic, sourced directly from artisanal, independent suppliers which the founders behind Quartieri have formed over the years.
