As well as the Hunter Square location, there are also two Civerinos Slice Bars in the city, where pizza is served, well, by the slice.
Just a short walk from Edinburgh‘s Waverley train station, you’ll find the Italian street food eatery just off the Royal Mile.
Like stepping back into the ’80s! Checkerboard tiles, pink leather booths, and walls covered in neon lights, what more could you want? Our table was downstairs in the basement, where the tables and stools are topped with cool terrazzo.
Our waiter, Tom, was friendly, quick and attentive. First rate.
Pasta and pizza fans rejoice. There’s a little something for everyone on the extensive Civerinos menu. Famous for their New York-style pizza (of which there are 12 options), there’s also starters and sharers, pastas, salads, mains, and sides. Oh, and there’s also a kids menu for the wee ones, and gluten-free options, too.
Our party of five adults (two vegan, one gluten-free) and one child managed to polish off something from every section of the menu. To start, we shared an antipasti platter with all the Italian classics, as well as arancini balls – just the right portion size and all fresh and delicious.
The Savage Garden pizza (sugo, vegan mozzarella, olives, mushrooms, peppers, rocket, balsamic glaze and chilli flakes) was a highlight of the mains we ordered, as was the vegan mac and cheese, and traditional spaghetti meatballs topped with parmesan and parsley. Everything was simply delizioso.
Relaxed and laidback despite the pre-Christmas rush. Great for big parties and date night alike.
With mains starting from £11, we were very impressed with the taste and quality.
