ZIa Lucia vegetables on charcoal base pizza

SquareMeal Review of Zia Lucia Holloway

‘How do you solve a problem like pizzeria?’ – or more aptly, the lack thereof in Holloway? By opening one, of course, and serving charcoal-dough bases so delicious the hungry hordes flock there. Zia Lucia is a respectable little outfit, with a rustic-inspired interior, an authentic wood-fired oven and even a little counter for a Spritzer and a dollop of burrata. But the star draw, aside from the warm service, is the pizzas themselves. Try the Arianna (mozzarella, fresh sausage, Taleggio, pecorino and truffle honey) for something different, and match your topping to your lifestyle: health-conscious diners are catered for with both wholemeal and gluten-free bases. The charcoal variety has a subtle hint of smoke, without any bitterness. Drinks are cheap (£5.50 for a Spritzer) and generously portioned, as are starters and salads (the roasted butternut squash with sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes and capers is best). A new neighbourhood gem is born.
