Edinburgh's Civerinos Slice to open two venues in Glasgow

Edinburgh's popular New York inspired pizza slice restaurant is coming to Glasgow.

Published: April 13, 2022

After eight years in Edinburgh with four venues across the capital, Civerinos Slice are heading west to Glasgow, with two new restaurants in the pipeline.

Edinburgh’s New York Italian inspired, neon-lit hang-out, Civerinos, have announced that they are set to open two new Slice venues in Glasgow in the coming months.

Civerinos are famous in the capital for their wood fired pizzas and modern Italian street food, with secret classic family recipes passed down through generations.

Originally opened in 2014 by Michele and Olivia Civeria, the Civerinos portfolio now has its original Italian-dining room venue at Hunter Square as well as three Civerinos Slice restaurants on Forrest Road, Portobello Promenade and in Corstorphine.

Now, the Edinburgh pizza and Italian street food restaurant - dubbed the “coolest place to eat in Edinburgh” by GQ - is ready to expand to Glasgow, with two new locations for Slice restaurants secured and the hunt on to find a third venue for a pop-up this summer.

Civerinos Slice venues are neighbourhood, New York style pizza spots, serving by the slice as well as dishing out full size pizzas to sit-in or go - perfect for cash-strapped students and busy people on the move.

Glasgow customers can everything Civerinos Slice are famous for in the capital - NYC-style slices, 20-inch pizzas and the same old-school vibes.

Although the locations of the permanent locations are yet to be revealed, Civerinos are looking for independent Glaswegian businesses who’d be willing to host a pizza pop-up with them this summer.

Civerinos CEO Michele Civeria said: “We’ve been trying to get to Glasgow since 2020 and after a few stumbles along the way (and a whole pandemic) - I’m delighted to now get started on opening our west coast Slice venues.

“We’re looking for a friendly location to host us until we’re fully in brick and mortar so that we can host all our friends, family and people of Glasgow - come visit us for a slice when we open.”
