Nonna-style pizzeria Slice is coming back to Stevenson Square

After three years away from the Northern Quarter, Slice has made its long-awaited return to Stevenson Square

It was a Stevenson Square stalwart for years, until 2019, that is, when Slice closed its doors for a short refurbishment – never to reopen again.

Despite initial promises to return the following spring, with the shutters down and the late-night hatch firmly locked, many debated whether it had vanished for good.

Thankfully that wasn’t the case, and in 2021 bosses managed to find a new home for their popular rectangular pizza slices – this time serving out of another hatch over at Oxford Road train station.

Fast forward another year, and it’s finally back where it belongs. The Roma-style pizza favourite is finally making its long-awaited return to Stevenson Square as it takes up a new residency inside Arlo’s deli and wine bar.

Moving in just round the corner from its original location, here pizza fans can once again enjoy their famous crispy-based slices once again alongside pizza bianca (crunchy white cheese-topped Roma-style focaccia).


As ever, ordera are done on a by-the-slice basis – with choices including the famous broccoli sausage, as well as margherita and vegan rustica (vegan mozzarella, vegan pesto genovese, rustica semi-dried tomatoes and rocket).

As for the pizza bianca, or white pizza, topping choices include mortadella with pistachio, mozzarella and rocket; porchetta di montagna, mozzarella and rocket; and vine tomato, mozzarella, rocket and pesto genovese.

Slice will serve from 12pm- 8pm daily inside Arlo’s, which is open seven days a week.
