Cult pizza restaurant Civerinos has unveiled a sneak peek of its first Glasgow slice bar ahead of its opening, which has been confirmed for Wednesday next week.

The new venue, located on Finnieston’s lively Radnor Street, is just a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Skatepark.

The bright and airy interiors are filled with bent-plywood furniture inspired by a half pipe skate ramp. There’s also a DJ booth and standing tables inspired by New York slice bars, while the exterior is covered in eye-catching graffiti by local artist, Pizza Boy.

Civerinos has also recreated its training academy and pizza production lab ‘Doughboy’ in its Finnieston branch, which combines the artistry of pizza crafting with expertise to create the perfect dough and sauces, every time.

Michele Civiera, founder of Civerinos, said:

“It’s been a long time coming – it’s a dream come true.

“We’ve worked hard at creating a shop, a vibe and a menu that we hope the community will love and the people of the city have come to expect. With a passion for authentic flavours and a commitment to excellence, we’re here to serve the people of Glasgow our signature slices and good times.

“It’s been humbling to sit inside our first restaurant in Glasgow this week. We know our offering is special, and that comes from all the magic that happens behind the scenes with our incredible teams, consistently carving the craft of pizza making. It’s where the Civerinos journey begins, and I can’t wait to welcome everyone in and let our food do the talking.”

Civerinos Finnieston boasts what is thought to be one of Scotland’s biggest pizza ovens, which will allow the chefs to bake more than 300 pies per hour.

With both a waiting area and seating area overlooking the pizza prep station, the shop has been set up to cater for both speedy takeaways for slices in nearby Kelvingrove Park and a leisurely sit down dining experience.

The restaurant even boasts a new addition to its menu: the Sausage Squared, a Detroit style Italian sausage, pancetta, mozzarella and potato showstopper.

Independent suppliers have been championed with Charley’s Chalk creating bespoke signage writing across the ceiling, Solus Neon made the feature neon signage.

Civerinos worked with Scottish architects S+Co to make the vision for its first Glasgow restaurant a reality.

Graham Currie, Director of S+Co, said:

“This was pretty much a dream brief for us: an opportunity to bring all of the things we work on together and work with a brand that has a really strong, positive personality.

“Civerinos wanted a space that customers and staff would feel good in, and it had to reflect the attitude and style of the Civs brand. It was also a space that needed to work hard, where speed of service would be key.

“The layout needed to cater for people picking up a takeaway slice and for those who want to sit in. So we split the space in two: one half houses the kitchen and takeaway counter, and the other half is for those wanting to sit and order a full pizza.

“Where these halves meet, there’s an in-between zone with standing perch tables where you can wait for your order or stand and eat your slice and chat with pals.”

More than 400 people applied for jobs at the Glasgow restaurant which champions a fairer approach to hospitality.

Finnieston Slice is set to open its doors on Tuesday, 19 September.
