Named for a short-lived 1970's pirate radio station in Bologna, and housed in a former school, Radio Alice is the brainchild of brothers Salvatore and Matteo Aloe. They created the Berbere pizzeria in Italy, making pizzas using yeast, ancient stoneground flour and 24-hour fermented dough. And they are now open in Hoxton (where else?). Emma King, co-founder of Gail’s Bakery, is also involved.
Our mission: make delicious pizza, served with care, in beautiful spaces.
In the beginning we were just Matteo and Salvatore, two brothers from Calabria. We moved to Bologna to study economics, and – like all penniless students – ate a lot of pizza.
We wanted pizza that was good, and made and served with care. Without really knowing what we were getting ourselves into, we opened our first Berbere Pizzeria in 2010 in Bologna , gritting our teeth (and tightening our belts).
Many years later along with our friend Emma (a co-founder at GAIL’s Bakery) we opened Radio Alice Pizzeria in Hoxton Square.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
