Visiting Edinburgh to go to a show at the Playhouse. After a lot of searching found this fabulous restaurant 20 minutes walk from the theatre. Lovely atmosphere, great service and the most delicious food. As one of the party is Coeliac we required a gluten free option but obviously wanted everyone else to enjoy their meal too. Origano met all... More

Arrived on a quiet midweek afternoon, we were shown straight to a table and dealt with efficiently. Drinks order taken immediately, and served promptly. So many restaurants are too slow in this respect! Pizzas ordered and arrived in about 10 mins, perfectly cooked, and the best pizza dough I have tasted. Highly recommended.

I wanted to meet a potential business client in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Oregano delivered. What was great? Sense of welcome, little bit of gentle humour. Warmth of welcome, the chefs smiled. The food was lovely too. I really enjoyed being there. Time passed too quickly

We went for my husbands birthday. The place was nice enough. Original features left from an old Mill. I didn't find the food anything to write home about....in fact I don't even remember what I had! The staff were nice enough and allowed us to bring a cake. The candle was lit in the kitchen and the showstopper effect was... More

I have eaten in so many restaurants in London and all over the world. This place is perfect. I only hope that they never change it. I went in there on a cold December night, and walked into a cosy, candle lit, crepuscular little restaurant, chalk boards around the walls with different menu segments. The place felt so warm and...

I tried to order a vegetarian pizza and was told on that that is a margarita pizza and toppings were £1.70 each. This was disappointing and confusing. I was then made to feel bad as I was told I should have looked at the menu. Then they hung up on me.

Just back from our first visit to Origano. It will not be our last, so good we can't wait for our next visit. Shared bruschetta which was melt in the mouth delicious. Prosciutto pizza and Milano pizza quickly followed, which was devine. Best pizza outside of Rome by a very long way. Finished off with a delightful tiramisu. Staff were... More

We hadn't booked a table but despite being very busy they let us in. The service was average to be honest. The lady took our drink order straight away but she completely stuffed up the order. Somehow turning a G&T into a Vodka and soda?? Either way we weren't bothered much and waited for our food. The food took a... More
