Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

This Civerinos operation is all about taking the time to share and enjoy good Italian food, a very different approach to their grab-and-go pizza slice bar on Forrest Road. There are salads, pizzas (the base here is thinner and crispier than Slice's New York-inspired pies) and pastas. Carbonara is particularly good with hefty chunks of salty pancetta, as are the signature meatballs served with equally impressive sugo and rosemary focaccia. The big things to share option offers the very popular steak tagliata, a salumi board of meats and cheeses or bruschetta. The atmosphere is relaxed with exposed brick walls plastered with posters, R&B on the stereo, shared tables and everything served on wooden boards, metal trays or vintage bowls. It's worth saving space for the zeppole hot doughnuts with cinnamon sugar and dipping pots of Nutella and mascarpone – wow! Wash it all down with a slushy of the day.
