Matto Pizzalaunch Morningside restaurant
MATTO Pizza will launch a restaurant in Morningside in mid-December. The pizza outlet currently delivers up to 600 pizzas a night from its giant city centre pizza oven but this will be the brand’s first dedicated diner. The new pizzeria at 370-372 Morningside Road, will serve a selection of Neapolitan-style pizzas and authentic Italian starters and desserts. MATTO has become a firm favourite amongst city centre residents for its unique take on the classic Neapolitan pizza. MATTO uses a state-of-the-art wood-fired oven that cooks the pizzas in 60 seconds and uses a long, slow rise dough made with premium 00 Italian flour. Their pizzaiolos create all pizzas from scratch using only the best ingredients including, San Marzano tomatoes DOP and Fior di Latte Mozzarella as standard. They are also renowned for their creativity and the new Morningside menu will feature firm favourites including their Truffle base pizza with smoked cheese, mushrooms and rocket and Pumpkin base pizza with ‘Nduja, gorgonzola, pumpkin seeds and fresh basil; and new additions such as Pea purée base pizza with smoked speck, gorgonzola, mozzarella, figs, rocket and balsamic glaze drizzle. The 42-seater restaurant will take customers on a journey in true theatrical Neapolitan-style incorporating bold prints and bright colours to dramatic effect. A show stopping pizza oven will take centre stage with the design details as its cast. Co-owner Nel from MATTO Pizza, said: “We are really excited to be opening a restaurant in Morningside. When we launched MATTO, our vision was to create authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas that were a little different but with absolutely no compromise on the quality of the ingredients. It has been a labour of love from day one and to expand so quickly, we feel incredibly lucky. It would not have been possible without the support of our loyal customers. We hope to welcome old and new customers to the new restaurant, so we can showcase MATTO’S creativity and hospitality”. MATTO Pizza is due to open mid-December.
