The High Dive
New venture from the expanding Civerinos family, fusing local pub with pizza joint.
The latest addition to Michele Civiera’s all-conquering Civerinos pizza empire is the High Dive. Although the intention was to be a cool hangout with DJs, it’s already such a hit with the neighbours that lively local may be a more fitting description. Expect the familiarly funkily tiled New York diner-style décor and the same great value, authentic pizzas. Out of nine, four are veggie, one contains crisps, one grapes and one sprouts. But you could keep it classic with a 99 – sugo, rosemary, pepperoni, Italian sausage, garlic oil and burrata. Have a side order of fries or salad, or save room for hot doughnuts or Nutella calzone. There’s plenty of beer (jugs possible), cider and decent wine (organic and reasonably priced) to wash it down with, and a buzzing atmosphere. Or come in the day and take advantage of the free filter coffee and WiFi, with a breakfast of Bross bagels, granola or a bacon sandwich in pizza dough. Yum.
