2nd time in and loved it again. We were recognised and made welcome. Either that man has a great memory for faces or we were louder than I thought Last time (that could well be the case). The food was excellent again. Only one person strayed from pizza and had the lasagne but it was all fantastic - the charcuterie... More

Very intimate restaurant but it's true what they say small but perfectly formed. The pizzas were very good and very reasonable. We were in a party of 8 and all of our pizzas came out at virtually the same time. Would definitely recommend!

Booked after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. Good job we booked it was full. Three of our group had pizza and one had the salad. The salad was the best choice. Pizza was average. The tiramisu however was brilliant. Service was laid back but friendly and very efficient.

The pizzas here, according to my Italian friend, are the best pizzas outside Italy. They never fail to impress. Staff are always friendly too. If I did say something negative about this intimate little resturant, it can be a bit cold. Otherwise....perfect.

We went to Origano as a group of about 15 for a birthday a couple of Sundays ago. Our servers were wonderful, timely, and very helpful. Each dish that arrived blew our minds. We had the veggie antipasti, and not a sliver of tomato was left on the plate. The salads, pizzas, and the AMAZING tiramisu made it a meal... More

Had dinner with family here on an early booking. The menu is simple, but superbly delivered. The small size of the restaurant makes for a cosy feel.

As great fans of La Favorita (100yds nearer Edinburgh), it took quite a wrench to persuade everyone to give this little place a go, but boy we are glad we did. Nice atmosphere, good food, friendly staff, good value...... - and special requests! GREAT!

Went for lunch and we both had pizza. It is such a lovely setting and the pizzas are the tastiest around by far ! You will not regret a trip here as it is very affordable for what it is. Will be visiting again.
