Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Honest and laid-back, with excellent service and food as authentic as you’d find in Italy, Civerinos has a hip-Brooklyn-pizza-joint vibe. And if pizza is your thing, this is the real deal. A choice of 11 are made to order, with a couple available by the (massive) slice. Snacks and starters include calamari, meatballs, zucchini fritters and polenta & rosemary chips, the latter two dishes served with a tomato sugo you’ll later obsess over how to recreate. Mint & chilli feta salad is flavoursome and fresh, while the meat & cheese platter is laden with traditional Italian produce (and the option to add a side of sugo which you’d be mad to ignore). Of course there’s a range of pasta dishes, among them a 12-hour slow-cooked beef ragu, and if you’re still hungry after that, the Italian zeppole hot donuts & cinnamon sugar served with whipped vanilla cream will put you right. Brilliant at any time of the day, but Civerinos really comes into its own at night: communal tables bustle with life and DJs play at weekends until the small hours.

  • High point: Great ‘slow fast food’ and top service
