True Italian Pizza in Edinburgh

As a Italian food lover, I have visited this restaurant several times now and i never fails to impress. The Pizza is one of the best i have had outside Italy. Perfectly made thin crust and good quality toppings. The service is always good and I am glad to see them doing well as they have now... read more

We had pizza at Homeslice in London (Covent garden), that one is supposed to be the best one...but once we had one at Origano we knew Edinburgh has the best! The place is pretty nondescript and you can easily miss it as its a common looking place on a common looking street, there are barely 7-8 tables in the restaurant... More

We came here Saturday at 7.45pm. Prior to coming I had called to book but of course there is a no booking policy for under 6 people but was assured with their new larger premises there wouldn't be a problem getting a table. When we arrived we were told there was a half hour wait and we could have a... More

Similar experience to the previous reviewer. We've have been to Origano a couple of times when it was in its smaller premises. The food has always been fantastic so called to make a reservation for Saturday evening, told we couldn't as there were only two of us. Arrived to a full restaurant and advised there would be a 45 minute... More

Went to the newly opened origano on a Friday evening and while the food was really good there were a few issues which I think can be resolved easily and hopefully this is done as we live locally and would love to return. The first issue was getting seated. We had phoned to reserve a table to be advised that... More

We had been to this place a couple of times and the food was always excellent. Since they moved into the new premises however they have adopted a 'no bookings' policy for groups less than 6. We were told when we tried to book that they would be able to seat us no problem. When we turned up however we... More

We were delighted to get a table in the new premises on openign night. The new restaurant is markedly bigger but retains the same feel as the former premises. The groovy purple pizza oven was running like a dream, and the staff ran the show like they'd been there for years. So glad to see this business doing so well.... More

Without a doubt the best Italian in Edinburgh! Quite a late review, visited for my 18th birthday while seeing Wicked in December and staying for a couple of nights. My mum & I chose Origano as we both love Italian, and the restaurant looked so quaint and had excellent reviews! When arriving, the restaurant is incredibly intimate and relaxed, with... More

Decided to try on a Sunday afternoon after a few failures to secure an evening booking. Very quiet so can't comment on how atmosphere would usually be. Suited us though and got a very personalised friendly service. Menu choices straightforward and simple with a few specials. Absolutely loved the food. Mixed antipasta starter delicious followed up by top quality pizzas.... More

We saw the ranking on here for this place and were suitably impressed so we booked a table (always advisable it's not huge inside). The atmosphere is fantastic, lovely and dark with candles throughout. A reasonably simple menu, but it is such high quality it is impossible to complain. The antipasti starter to share was just magnificent, so fresh and... More
