Great find, lovely atmosphere, great pizzas, friendly staff. We have been twice since discovering the delights of Origano and enjoyed both occasions. BYO Mondays and Tuesdays. Takeaways also available (as are deliveries I believe). Best things come in small packages. Must book.

Thanks trip advisor we had one night in the city and always like to discover new things and this was just perfect. We rang ahead and reserved a table. We arrived to the small and clean restaurant with great character throughout. The service was timed perfectly and the food was great quality.

Every time we walked past here it was full. The food looked great and the punters were happy. So we stuck our heads in and were lucky enough to be able to order a table for the evening. You MUST get a reservation, this place is always booked out and rightly so. It is understated but delicious. We had a... More

If you are a pizza fan then this little place is a must. My friend and I went on a Tuesday evening. They do byob for £3 corkage on Mondays and Tuesdays. You really do need to book if you would like a table. My friend and I ordered two large pizza to share. Both were delicious and served with... More

I cannot stress enough how gorgeous the food was here! We had the small antipasto to share to start which was absolutely gorgeous with lovely bread. Then I had the lasagne which was the best lasagne I've ever had in a restaurant! Would definitely recommend. My boyfriend had the pizza which was perfect and he said it was better than... More

Fantastic restaurant! Visited with family members on 3 different occasions and each time food did not disappoint. We will visit again as we visit Leith often. Found this on trip advisor. Small but lovely! I would say best pizza in town. Service very good and always welcoming. I would advise booking.

We had visitors from Santa Barbara USA. They were here for the Fringe. They chose and booked this restaurant after reading TripAdvisor reviews. We were sceptical as we've never had a really good Italian meal in Edinburgh. We really enjoyed the meal. Some people might not be keen on the fact that the restaurant is really small and when the...

An excellent restaurant providing excellent food and the staff are helpful and welcoming. Would definately recommend visiting this restaurant but make sure you book a table, the dining area is very small but intimate and you wouldn't want to be disappointed. Reportedly the best pizza in town and I would tend to agree.
