Muddled between the headlines surrounding our freedom restrictions tightening and the WFH rule being rooted for once more following last night’s announcement, we sifted through our inbox to relieve you guys with some good news: Big Mamma is launching Napoli Gang, a brand new delivery-only restaurant, and it opens today! 

Known for the wildly flamboyant Gloria and Circolo Popolare, the restaurants that helped put the cool into granny chic interiors, Big Mamma is firing up the pizza oven to offer Londoners excellent Italian dining at home in the shape of their first ever delivery-only restaurant. 

Despite launching today, the news only dropped yesterday that the Napoli Gang will be fuelling hungry WFHomers through their tireless hours in front of their computer.

Right now, Napoli Gang will be cooking up a storm from Big Mamma’s Shoreditch kitchen, available within a two mile radius, with Kentish Town offering Italian dishes from Tuesday 29th September. They’re also announcing further locations soon too, bonus for anyone who’s a sucker for fluffy pizza and authentic flavours.

Speaking of pizza, the Napoli Gang menu specialises in indulgent, cheese oozing pizzas. Choose from the likes of the Hot Damn – mozzarella fior di latte, San Marzano tomato sauce with Calabria’s best spicy nduja and spinata sausage, tarragon-infused oil and candied red onions; Greta’s Pizza – yellow tomatoes, confit peppers, aubergines, courgettes (all fresh from Italy), Ligurian taggiasche olives and homemade vegan pesto; or go all out with the Truffle Squad – mozzarella fior de latte, fresh ricotta di bufala, black truffle cream, fresh seasonal truffle, button mushrooms sautéed with Sicilian thyme and fresh chives.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with their tempting selection of desserts, from Your Mum’s Panna Cotta, served with red fruit coulis to Big Mamma’s legendary Torta Al Limone XXL, a towering take on a lemon meringue pie. Not forgetting a scoop of their homemade Italian gelato too. Yum.  

As if their menu didn’t sound tempting enough, you’ll also be enjoying a meal with a conscience as Big Mamma have joined forces with Street League, a UK based charity which helps young individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds overcome practical and personal barriers to employment. Plus 1% of their turnover goes directly to the delivery teams who help get their dishes to your doorstep.

If you’re a fan of the flavours and story, they’ve even launched merch too so you can rock a t-shirt inspired by the dishes and all of the proceeds will go directly to Street League. 

After yesterday’s announcement, the arrival of Napoli Gang is the little added indulgence we all deserve.
