Locals queue along the promenade for pizza as Civerinos opens Portobello Beach branch
Civerinos has a reputation as one of the best pizza joints in Edinburgh – so it's hardly surprising locals are lining up along the promenade to grab a slice of the action at the new Portobello Beach branch.
The street food pizza company already has outlets at Forrest Road, Hunter Square and St John’s Road in Corstorphine, and the latest venture opened for business on Thursday (April 15).
Already, it's proving to be a hit with locals – as evidenced by the queues on Friday.
The new slice bar, named Prom Slice, is in owner Michele Civiera’s hometown of Portobello, based out of Noble’s amusements.
It has window for takeaway and space indoors for 20 – once Covid-19 restrictions are eased – with an outdoor seating area which will feature up to 50 deckchairs overlooking the sea.
A delighted Mr Civiera told the Evening News: “It's a dream come true for me to be able to do this in my own neighbourhood.”
