Italian craft dining concept Lievito to open first UK site

Italian pizzeria Lievito will be launching its debut pizza and craft beer dining concept in the UK on Fulham Road, west London in late November.

The 40-45-cover restaurant, located at 273 Fulham Road, will be spread over two floors totalling 1,099 sq ft.

It will serve pizza and traditional Calabrian dishes, along with a variety of craft beers and will also provide a grab-and-go offering.

The interior has been designed by Fabrica Architecture and will retain many original features of the Victorian building including cast iron stoves.

The bar area will incorporate a visible pizza oven, while downstairs will feature low-lighting and exposed brickwork alcoves of the original cellars.

Hannah Grievson, commercial property manager at Sloane Stanley said: "Lievito's debut UK restaurant is an exciting addition to Fulham Road's outstanding retail and dining offer. We are thrilled the brand selected this location to house their unique pizza and craft beer concept.

"The popularity of authentic Italian cuisine among fine-dining lovers makes them a perfect fit for Fulham Road visitors and shoppers as well as residents."

Rocco Caridi founder of Lievito, added: "Our sourdough pizzas and craft beers are a departure from the usual patterns of classic pizzerias and pubs. Lievito is a restaurant concept with its own identity, bringing innovation and tradition together. Our bespoke mixture of wholemeal flours makes our pizzas unique and recognisable for their lightness."

"With its international catchment, affluent residents and reputation for excellent retail and dining, the Fulham Road is the perfect place for us to brining the authentic taste of Calabria to the UK. We are hugely proud of our traditional menu which will have an appeal in an area where there is currently no other offer like us."

Sloane Stanley owns and manages hundreds of residential and commercial properties on the King's Road and Fulham Road in the capital.
