I loved the atmosphere in here - cozy dimmed lighting and well spaced tables. It was also great to see the chefs cooking in front of you using the big wood fired oven! I had a pizza with ricotta cheese on it, which was really tasty. My friend ordered a salad which also looked excellent!

Visited with friends after reading great reviews. Although it did take a few attempts as its always busy. Quite a small place with good atmosphere.There are lots of choice of pizzas and salads but only lasagne if you want pasta! The pizzas however were excellent, three sizes to choose from and loads of toppings. My Vesuvio was superb and very... More

Party of five, we were seated promptly just before reserved time. The ambiance is good, bustling like a good restaurant should. A small bar area on entry well appointed with low lighting throughout the bar and dining area. The table (named the "Horseshoe Table" was oversized for our needs but still comfortable. I have no adverse comments about the food,... More

I had the Origano pizza, and everyone in the table had pizza. Quite good and thin dough, perfect. Very cosy, and a good place for couples as well. I just didn't like that we had a time to actually leave the table as it was booked for someone else. But overall it was a good experience and at a good... More

As a Leither I am delighted to see so many really good bars and restaurants opening. (I remember Leith of the 1950s!) This is a very nice and welcoming space with intimate candle-lit tables, friendly staff and super pizzas. Starters were really good too - couldn't manage a dessert! Only small gripe is that the only non-pizza dish on offer... More

Went here as I had heard good things about it. We were part of a party to celebrate the special birthday (21st) of our granddaughter and can only say that it would appear that they are incapable of catering for any size of group over about half a dozen. We waited over an hour and a half to be given... More

My favourite place to go if I'm craving for some good pizza. Can't fault the service, lovely and pleasant staff. Atmosphere is always good, feels cozy and relax. Only problem I have is the long wait for the food. But you can tell everything is freshly made so I don't really mind the wait. I hope they'll update or add... More
