Basingstoke Gazette: The team at Pizzeria GaliOwner Miguel said: "I want my pizzeria grill bar to be the place to be! It's a great place to meet up with friends and start the night with authentic pizza and great cocktails, including our CBD-infused range. 

"I'm grateful to do what I love and excited to share my passion. Food is cooked with love and enjoyed with loved ones - and great food with great company at Pizzeria Gali is my goal."

Pizzeria Gali’s authentic Neapolitan Italian Pizza is prepared and cooked in its open-plan kitchen in front of customers in a wood-burning oven, by its own specialist Italian pizza chef.

Gali’s dough with Biga, a type of pre-fermentation used in Italian baking, is made fresh daily, giving a lighter soft dough, full of flavour, combining authentic Italian and local ingredients.

The restaurant also offers a lunch menu, with sandwiches made from pizza dough.

Manager Stephanie Jackson said: “I recommend you come along and try the pizza Regina; it is a more elevated take on a Margherita, and absolutely delicious.”

Vegetarian options are available, as well as vegan or gluten-free pizza

The pizzeria offers free delivery within a two-mile radius of the business park and free parking.
