We ate here after reading the amazing reviews. It did not disappoint - the good was delicious, the service was attentive and the vibe was relaxed elegance. We had our children 4 & 7 in two and they enjoyed their meals as well. If in edinburgh again, we will go back!

I like to update my reviews when I visit a restaurant again and it continues to delight. I had dinner at Origano again recently and I'm very happy to say that it is still fabulous, one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. The pizzas are delicious, the setting is romantic and intimate and the staff are very friendly. It is... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It's cosy, relaxed and serves Italian food to die for. It's also very reasonably priced (2 starters, 2 mains and 2 beers for £32). Sadly I was so full from the first two courses that I didn't have room for dessert but I guess that means I will just have to go back for... More

The atmosphere is really nice with candle light and small tables. Pizza was superb, the Margherita not that much but the Spinacio was mind blowing. Eat so much completely worth the calories.

Dropped in on spec and luckily got a table. Tiny restaurant but great atmosphere. The three of us had pizza. Wonderful, will definitely go back and sample the desserts. Best to book ahead.

Went here due to a recommendation from our daughter. We had a lovely evening in this small cosy restaurant. My husband and I had lasagna which was really good and tasty and came with homemade bread and my mum and sister in law had pizza which they both agreed was one of the best they have had, for dessert we...

Visited for lunch. Really, really good food and so reasonable. Platter to share for starter was perfect, pizzas and pasta were spot on. All tasted really fresh. Definitely somewhere we want to revisit. A hit with us.

Probably I approached this full of expectation after reading so many reviews. I had a "Pompei" pizza, and to be honest I didn't find it as special as described. It was thin, which I usually like, but was not crunchy at all. It was quite rich, a positive thing, but the "salami" was a sort of British sausage: nothing to... More

We went there following recommendations on there and we were not disappointed. Their pizzas are great, very good value for money and authentic. We also enjoyed their antipasti platter a lot.

This is a small restaurant, with a relaxed and friendly vibe. From the moment we stepped through the door we were made to feel at home. The service throughout was chatty and informal. As for the food, it was truly excellent. We shared a couple of platters between four of us for starters, which went down very nicely. To follow... More
