Pizza restaurant Civerinos has unveiled a sneak peek of its first Glasgow slice bar ahead of its opening, which has been confirmed for Tuesday next week. The new venue, located on Finnieston’s Radnor Street, is just a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Skatepark.
Civerinos Finnieston boasts what is thought to be one of Scotland’s biggest pizza ovens, which will allow the chefs to bake more than 300 pies per hour.
With both a waiting area and seating area overlooking the pizza prep station, the shop has been set up to cater for both speedy takeaways for slices in nearby Kelvingrove Park and a leisurely sit down dining experience.
The restaurant even boasts a new addition to its menu: the Sausage Squared, a Detroit style Italian sausage, pancetta, mozzarella and potato showstopper. Independent suppliers have been championed with Charley’s Chalk creating bespoke signage writing across the ceiling, Solus Neon made the feature neon signage.
Civerinos worked with Scottish architects S+Co to make the vision for its first Glasgow restaurant a reality.
Graham Currie, Director of S+Co, said: “This was pretty much a dream brief for us: an opportunity to bring all of the things we work on together and work with a brand that has a really strong, positive personality.”
