The artisanal pizzeria Pi is winging its way from Winchester to London.
Pi Pizza's offerings are available as standard size; with the option for half and half, or as a 20-inch base to share with two or three menu options. The toppings include: Hampshire pork sausage, sliced desiree potatoes, garlic, thyme, caper crumb and nocellara olives; wild boar salami, red chilli and piquillo peppers; Lebanese spiced ground lamb with Turkish yoghurt and fresh parsley; and Old Winchester cauliflower cheese, chorizo and spinach. All pizzas can be pimped with whole balls of Burrata Pugliese or Bufala Mozzarella.
To complement the pizzas, Pi’s menu also features small plates and salads to start. Guests can expect the likes of cauliflower and Old Winchester arancini, garlic and thyme flatbread with olive tapenade and truffle ham with Pecorino.
Pi boasts a 25-seat bar area, and its wine list has been curated by Rosie and her team. The restaurant offers a wide selection of organic reds and whites.
Pre Pi, owner Rosie Whaley worked in fashion design, and she has used her creative flair to personally design the restaurant interiors. A key focal point of the dining area is a living tree. The tables are hand-carved from oak trees from woodland in Salisbury and the banquet seating will be finished with Azilal Moroccan rugs. An open kitchen off the dining room will allow guests a glimpse of Pi’s pizzaiolos at work and the woodfired pizza oven. In the bar area, a dramatic ceiling installation of hanging dried flowers will add colour and a feminine touch.
Whaley said, “It’s been three whirlwind years since we brought Pi to Winchester and I’m so excited to be opening a second site. Londoners have an insatiable passion for pizza and I hope we can bring a slice of something special to the table.”
