Gallio to open first brick and mortar restaurant

Successful fast-casual Mediterranean pizza restaurant Gallio is opening its first full-service site in Canary Wharf next month, branching out from its current delivery-only offering to a new, permanent venue. 

From DOMA Hospitality, part of the group that includes The Stafford London – its Game Bird restaurant, Sicilian restaurant Norma London and the Michelin-starred Northcote in Lancashire, Gallio will open on 6 December in a 3,000sq ft site in The Atrium Kitchen, Cabot Place. 

The venue will have 96 covers and will trade seven days a week for lunch and dinner, also expanding its offering to include breakfast in January next year. 

Inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, artisanal pizza is the star of the menu, featuring the brand's signature dough, which is freshly prepared daily, made from a blend of grains mixed with nothing but yeast, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and filtered water, then hand-crafted into a thin and crispy base. 

Topping combinations include marinated artichoke hearts with sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives and mozzarella; spiced lamb with labneh, rose harissa, guindilla peppers and fresh mint; and aubergine with house pickles, signature red sauce with fire-roasted piquillo peppers, za'atar and wild rocket.

Additionally, the menu offers a range of small plates, signature Mediterranean bowls, flatbreads, salads and desserts.

The drinks menu features classic cocktails and spritzes, as well as wine, beers and non-alcoholic options.

Gallio Canary Wharf will also offer click and collect, pay by table app and delivery via Deliveroo within a 1.5-mile radius of the restaurant.
