Roman style pizza joint Slice is coming back to the Northern Quarter

This weekend, Slice will make a return to the Northern Quarter, setting up shop inside Arlo’s on Hilton Street

Slice, the much loved slice shop serving Roman style pizza, closed its doors on Stevenson Square back in 2019.

They originally promised fans it would be reopen by Spring 2019, and went on to open a new site in front of Oxford Road Train Station in Autumn 2021.

But Slice has since yet to return to the Northern Quarter. Until now, that is.

From this weekend, pizza fans can enjoy their famous crispy based pizza once more as the brand returns to its spiritual home, back on Stevenson Square.

Slice will be taking up residency inside Arlo’s deli and wine bar on Hilton Street from Friday 29th July. 

“You want great pizza back in Stevenson Square?” they said in a video on Instagram.

“No problem – we’re on our way.”
