Civerino’s has been a hit on Edinburgh’s dining scene since it opened its doors in 2015. Typical Italian dishes are served like street food on silver trays and wooden boards, with diners seated on long sharing tables. The atmosphere is hip and relaxed – even the restaurant’s eye-catching replica of Michelangelo’s David sports a pair of Ray-Bans. When it comes to the food, carbonara comes with huge chunks of guanciale and generous shavings of parmesan, topped with a perfect yellow yoke waiting to be mixed. Antipasti boards are piled high with meat, cheese and chunky focaccia and the crispy pizzas are just as generously topped. The signature pizza – The Civerinos – with Sicilian sausage, spicy pepperoni and melted burrata is a must, best washed down with a delicious frozen Aperol Spritz straight from the slushy machine. Save space for the zeppole doughnuts, which can only be described as little nuggets of deep-fried heaven.
