Francesco Mazzei To Open New Restaurant In Battersea Power Station


Italian celebrity chef Francesco Mazzei is set to open Fiume, a modern riverside Italian restaurant at Battersea Power Station this summer

The exciting launch is Mazzei’s third since 2015, joining Sartoria on Savile Row and Radici in Islington. Open for lunch and dinner, Francesco Mazzei will oversee Fiume (Italian for river) as Chef Patron, but will hand over the day-to-day running of the kitchen to Head Chef, Francesco Chiarelli.


Chiarelli has worked alongside Francesco for over five years, having joined him and his brigade at L’Anima before moving to Sartoria; he not only shares his forename but his Calabrian heritage too. Prior to living in London, Francesco Chiarelli worked as Head Chef at Cosenza’s Executive Hotel (now known as the Ariha Hotel) in Calabria, Italy.

Fiume will be set within the first phase of the area’s Battersea Power Station whopping £9billion redevelopment, named Circus West Village – which is right by the Thames and overlooking the piazza. Designed by Macaulay Sinclair, the 120-cover restaurant will feature an open kitchen complete with wood-fired oven, bar counter dining for 15 covers, and a terrace for an added spot of al fresco feasting.

Chef Patron Francesco Mazzei comments: “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!”
