Acclaimed Italian chef Francesco Mazzei is set to open a restaurant at Battersea Power Station this summer.

Fiume, a new modern Italian, is Mazzei’s third launch since 2015, joining Sartoria on Savile Row and Radici in Islington.

Overseen by Mazzei but run day-to-day by head chef Francesco Chiarelli, Fiume - which is Italian for river - will be open for lunch and dinner.

Set within the first phase of Battersea Power Station's £9billion redevelopment, Circus West Village, the restaurant is by the Thames and overlooking the piazza.

Chef Patron Francesco Mazzei said: “When I saw the plans for Circus West Village and Battersea Power Station as a whole, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be involved.

“It is a one-of-a-kind project that will attract people from all over the world and I cannot wait to feed them all.”

Fiume will be a 120-cover venue designed by Macaulay Sinclair and feature an open kitchen with a wood-fired oven, bar counter dining for 15 covers, and a terrace where up to 50 guests can dine al fresco.

Rob Tincknell, CEO of the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Francesco Mazzei is an amazing chef with a strong track record and we are delighted that he has chosen Circus West Village at Battersea Power Station to unveil his new concept restaurant.

“It will add to the wide selection of food offerings, bars, and other businesses that will make this area such an incredible place to live, work or visit.”
