It's always nice to see a great restaurant expand, and it's rare that they manage to maintain the personal service a great quality of food as they do. Origano has managed both. Lovely setting and really great pizza which are cooked in an open kitchen as you watch. £65 for two with starters, main, desert, coffees and a bottle of... More

crispy pizza, great flavours in the toppings and great service. Order the 16" to share and you can watch the chef spin the dough above his head as he shapes the bases. We ate out a lot while at the Fringe, and this was the best.

Antipasti sharing platter board was good quality and tasty. The pizza with anchovies, artichoke and capers was extremely good. Their made in-house pizza dough was crispy and soft in all the right places. Try the lasagne, it has the richest sauce and you will need extra bread to cope with all that flavour. The service was top notch, couldn't fault... More

We were fitted in after a short wait - we should have reserved earlier but didn't. The staff were very helpful and the food was very good. There is a nice ambiance and feel to the place. Food was served fairly quickly which was good as they had a full house. I'd gladly return to this restaurant in the future.

Having recently moved into these larger premises from their small restaurant nearby we decided to give it a try. Great atmosphere in the restaurant with open kitchen and large pizza oven. Specialise in pizzas with lots of options and good vegetarian selection. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. My partner had one of the large selection of pizzas, which... More

We were 4 people. We shared a large Origano pizza and it was fantastic. The dough, sauce and topping all complemented each other. Service was also very efficient.

We went for lunch and the antipasti platter was superb- excellent selection of food and the red pesto was particularly lovely. The pizza was good and the wine fine- but the seats are old dining chairs and rather uncomfortable. Service was friendly but not obtrusive and all in all well worth a visit.

I visited Origano twice this month and both times the food was spectacular. I didn't visit their old venue but the new restaurant has a great atmosphere and you can watch the chefs cook away in the open plan kitchen dining area. Service was slightly slow but it didn't really matter because I was quite happy to sit in such... More

I had been trying to dine at Origanos for aroud 6 months, and due to my own fault always left it too late to book. Finally, after they moved to their new premises I decided to go as soon as possible...and I would happily wait another 6 months to eat there again, superb! This resaturant is run by three guys...
