Luppolo is a “neighbourhood pizzeria with an obsession for amazing craft bee” – – so enthusiastic are they that their self-definition even rhymes! Luppolo is the Italian word for ‘hop’ (the plant not jumping on one leg), and it’s home to a hand picked slection of local and international craft beers, including their very own Luppolo Pale Ale. They also like locally distilled fancy gins – and make classic coctails with them and other spirits, but if you prefer wine to go with your Italian food then there is also wine and non-alcoholic drinks from ethnical indie producers. The kitchen is obsessed with perfecting stone baked pizza and they make their own doughs (there’s even a gluten free one) and infused oils. They also offer a wide range of proper Italian food – polpetti (meatballs), bruschetta, sharing platters of anti pasti (both veggi and meaty) and assure you that everything is sourced from the best Italian ingredients.
