A one-stop shop for contemporary Italian street food, Civerinos is categorically a foodie paradise. Open late until 1am every day of the week, this smashing eatery plays to your deepest foodie desires with simple yet transformative dishes like a big bowl of fries, antipasti, caprese and of course, pizza for days on end — think quattro formaggi, burrata, cheese steak, hot hot sausage and vesuvio calzone. Plenty of benches invite groups of pals to indulge away while atmospheric hanging lights, purple party lighting, exposed brickwork and hip arty accents add that extra touch of pizzazz.
