Went out to celebrate mothers day with all the lovely women in my family and La Favorita provided us with a fantastic venu, food and service as it has done so many times before. Cant wait for my next trip there!

“Just awesome again :) No need to go anywhere else!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Thanks again, guys, for THE perfect evening! There were 6 of us, and we were soooo well looked after and had such a laugh! The food was just EXCELLENT, as usual. Some of my friends hadn't been here before, but now they (like me) are convinced that this is The Best Italian Restaurant in Edinburgh. Thanks so much for having, and maintaining, such high standards - in the food, in the service - and keeping it all fun! Coming back next week, and may be the next, and the next! Sarah

“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Had eaten here 3 weeks ago after the theatre and vowed to go back. That visit was spoiled by the waiter who served us. He seemed to know everyone at all the other tables and spent most of the time giving them high 5s and ignoring us. Fortunately, the food outweighed him. This week's visit was a far better experience because of the waiter. (The one with the flat cap and cheery smile.) He made us so welcome and was very attentive. He even offered water for our table and left chilli oil for us to try. We were not offered these on our previous visit.
Hopefully it won't too long until I'm back through in Edinburgh to enjoy another visit to La Favorita.

“Best pizza in Edinburgh”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We reserved and got our table with no hassle. Complimentary bread after we were seated and a drinks order taken straight away. Starters were fantastic. The pizza was amazing for both me and my partner. We were served quickly with no complications by friendly staff. Great place to go if you're looking to spoil yourself with a good Italian meal.

“Much more than a pizza place”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We happened upon La Favorita through Trip Advisor. I was initially cautious as it was part of. Restaurant group (often when there is more than one of anything the quality decreases) but saw a lot of favorable reviews. The food was exceptional and the service equal to it. The price could not be beat for what we got. We rather enjoyed speaking with the manager and wait staff as they were very friendly, knowledgable and interesting to speak with. I have spent a few years in Italy and I would say that there is a very authentic and genuine feel to this restaurant. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience here and look forward to returning soon,
