Civerinos is a contemporary Italian street food restaurant on Hunter Square.
The casual, yet stylish, fun, young ambiente attracts pizza connaisseurs and those craving for other Italian classics like meat balls, pasta, and bruschetta.
Offering a selection of soft drinks and beers, Civerinos is an ideal pit stop for people exploring the Old Town.
Open from noon until “late”, snacks and starters, sharing platters, salads, olives, 3 aromatic pasta dishes, risotto, focaccia, and steak can be ordered from the menu.
Those appreciating a thin sourdough crust and aromatic sugo rejoice at the sight of the classic, hot and freshly made Italian dish. 12 pizza creations with toppings ranging from buffalo mozzarella, slow cooked beef, roasted pumpkin, caramelised onions, ndjua sausage, taleggio, artichoke and pepperoni salami offer something for most palates. A small selection is available by the slice to satisfy a more modest appetite.
Judging by the most classic variety, the humble margherita (£10.50 for a large pizza), Civerinos have mastered the art of pizza making. The pizza is epic. The signature variety Civerinos and the spicy Hot Hot Sausage also frequently raise an appreciative brow.
A few vegetarian and a vegan pizza options as well as GF pasta are available upon request.
Beer and soft drinks, and a choice of wine and liquors, as well as a complimentary carafe of tap water are quickly served by the young, enthusiastic staff to allow some time to study the menu.
Large shared tables and benches (some seating is available outside), and tunes coming from the speakers may not make Civerinos an obvious choice for a quiet romantic night for two, but certainly a fun place in a bustling atmosphere to meet friends for a bite to eat.
Just a few steps away from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile overlooking Hunter Square, Civerinos offers good quality Italian food at reasonable prices.
