Years back, when you said, “Ooh, I fancy a pizza”, the options at your disposal were limited to chain restaurants, takeaway kingpins and whichever kebab shop you could stumble into.

Matteo and Salvatore, two brothers from Calabria, moved to Bologna to study economics, and – like all penniless students – ate a lot of pizza. They wanted a pizza that was crunchy, airy and delicious. After much testing, Matteo found the pizza he was craving by using organic stoneground flour, wild yeast, time (24hrs) and seasonal ingredients, sliced to share.
Without really knowing what they were getting themselves into, they opened the first Berbere Pizzeria in 2010 in Bologna. Many years later along with the brother’s friend Emma (a co-founder at GAIL’s Bakery) the team opened Radio Alice Pizzeria in Hoxton Square then Clapham Common. Named after a pirate radio station from Bologna, they created their web radio that you can listen to in the pizzerias or online.
Radio Alice Hoxton is located in a Victorian school building, high ceilings, an open kitchen so you can watch to the pizzaiolos make the pizzas from the whole restaurant. The terrace overlooking Hoxton Square is perfect for sunny summers day or with a blanket and the heating on through winter!
