Gallio to launch first permanent site next month

The new 3,000 square ft site will accommodate up to 96 covers and trade seven days a week from 11am – 10:30pm for lunch and dinner

Gallio is set to launch its first ever bricks-and-mortar site with a new opening in Canary Wharf, following its the delivery-only launch of the premium, fast-casual Mediterranean pizza joint. 

Gallio will open its doors on 6 December and be located in The Atrium Kitchen on Upper Level 2 of Cabot Place.

It is the latest offering from DOMA Hospitality, part of the group that includes The Stafford London, its Game Bird restaurant, Sicilian restaurant Norma London, and Michelin-starred Northcote in Lancashire.  

The new 3,000 square ft site will accommodate up to 96 covers and trade seven days a week from 11am – 10:30pm for lunch and dinner. From 3 January 2022, Gallio will also add breakfast to its menu, and open from 8am. 

The menu is said to be “inspired by the natural and nutritious Mediterranean diet and showcases a passion for fresh and natural cooking”.

Its main offering is artisanal pizza, which uses a “signature base” that is freshly prepared daily, and comes with a selection of toppings, ranging from “light to flavour intense”.

Combinations include marinated artichoke hearts with sun-dried 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.

The menu also features a range of small plates, signature Mediterranean bowls, flatbreads, vibrant salads and desserts. A wide range of vegan and gluten-free dishes are also available. 

The site will also offer signature and classic cocktails and spritzes, alongside a “concise” list of wines and beers, and non-alcoholic options including mocktails, juices, smoothies and specialty teas and Union coffee. 

The interiors are described as “distinctly Mediterranean” in style, featuring fired terracotta and handcut glazed tiles, brass tables, hanging baskets and an olive tree. The counter has been designed to showcase Gallio’s fresh salads and the pizza-making by trained pizza chefs.  

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. 

James Porter, MD at Gallio, said: “Gallio aims to offer guests an escape to the Mediterranean with every visit. Diners are looking for healthier choices, better ingredients, fast service and great value, we deliver that guilt-free meal – lighter, cleaner and more sustainable – without compromising. 

“We offer exciting and diverse flavoured dishes alongside freshly prepared pizza to ensure all-day appeal. We are excited for the brand’s future.”
