Two Edinburgh restaurants are combining pizza and chocolate to create an exciting dessert to impress their diners.

The chocolate calzone range, which come with a selection of chocolate fillings from popular chocolate bars, is available at both Civerinos Italian restaurants and is the perfect excuse to celebrate Chocolate Week, which runs from the 8th to the 14th October, 2018.

Available at their city centre locations – ‘Civerinos’ at Hunter Square on The Royal Mile and most recent opening ‘Civerinos Slice’ at Forrest Road – with takeaway and delivery options, the calzone desserts are designed for two or more to share and all served with a pot of vanilla cream.

So far the most popular, according to the Civerionos team, is the Toblerone and Walnut calzone, however, the staff say they are always trying out new flavours and combinations to mix it up depending on the season.

Currently on the menu at Civerinos Slice – Nutella and Mascarpone (£10), Toblerone and Walnut (£12), Wispa and Raspberry (£12) and also Mint Aero and vanilla (£12).

Executive director, Michele Civiera said of the popular chocolate treat: “Melt in the middle chocolate in our fluffy infamous dough, what else could you want?”
