6 of the Best Pizza Restaurants in Edinburgh!
There’s no better feeling than watching the kitchen doors open and your waiter carry a hot, large cheesy pizza in the direction of your table. Edinburgh’s pizza scene has grown over the years to include traditional restaurants, contemporary approaches to pizza, and pizza street food! Therefore, we felt it was about time we shared with you our favourite pizza restaurants in Edinburgh. So, in no particular order let’s begin!
- Where: 172 Rose Street & 47 South Clerk Street
- Visiting Edinburgh? Here’s a gorgeous home in Edinburgh’s elegant New Town: 146 GFL Rose Street South Lane
Dough has two restaurants in Edinburgh, the first on Rose Street and the second in Newington. Therefore, if you find yourself in either place in search of somewhere to eat, look no further than Dough! Both restaurants are fairly small, but you have the option to sit outside in their Rose Street branch on beautiful sunny days. Their philosophy is to create handcrafted, stone baked, saltwater pizza dough using fresh Italian ingredients (delivered daily). However, don’t worry if you have a food intolerance, allergy or other dietary requirements, Dough will do their best to rise to the challenge where possible!
- Where: 4 Charlotte Lane
- Looking to stay in Edinburgh’s West End, we have a lovely home for you at 19 3F Great Stuart Street.
@Pizza is a relatively new addition to Edinburgh’s pizza scene. Located on Charlotte Lane, just off Queensferry Street, @Pizza is a large and spacious restaurant, which is great for dining by yourself or with a large group of friends! The pizzeria has a vast array of ingredients and allows you to design your own pizza for a fixed price meaning you won’t get charged for extra toppings, or if you’re feeling a little indecisive you can choose one of their pre-designed pizzas (which includes a scrumptious dessert pizza)! Recently, they have also introduced a garlic bread pizza which, having tried, we can vouch for its deliciousness!
3. La Favorita (Vittoria Group)
- Where: Various Locations
- Bruntsfield and Morningside are great places to stay when visiting Edinburgh: 29B Gilmore Place
Where better to head for pizza than a third-generation Italian family restaurant! The Vittoria Group’s award-winning pizza restaurants are dotted around Edinburgh so there’s sure to be a branch relatively near you! Also, not to worry if you are gluten intolerant as nearly all their pizzas have a gluten-free option.
- Where: 5 Hunter Square & 49 Forrest Road
- Old Town is wonderfully charming and a great place to stay when visiting is 89(75) Holyrood Road.
Opened in early 2015 on Edinburgh’s Hunter Square, Civerinos offers an original, modern twist on Italian street-food. With exposed walls, sharing tables, and a glass front, there’s an urban and cool feel to the restaurant. The latest addition to the Civerino family is Civerino Slice, situated on Forrest Road. It’s branded itself as the neighborhood pizza bar and we think that’s the perfect description of it as you have the option to pop in and enjoy just one slice of pizza!
- Where: 227 Leith Walk
- Looking to visit Edinburgh, here’s a lovely holiday for you 41a(2F2) Broughton Street
Next, located in the former Victoria India Rubber Mill in Leith, Origano has become a favourite amongst locals. The open-plan dining pizza restaurant is cosy and has retained its industrial features, plus most importantly freshness is at the heart of the Origano ethos. They strive to offer the best of ingredients, freshly prepared, and locally sourced where possible from fellow independent suppliers. Therefore, if you’re looking for a cosy restaurant to enjoy lunch or dinner with loved ones we’d recommend Origano!
- Where: 27 Simpson Loan
- Where better to stay than one of Edinburgh’s most sought after addresses? 13(3) Simpson Loan
Last but certainly not least, Soderberg prides themselves on creating delicious sourdough pizzas – which are baked in their bakery above the restaurant! As a result, you are guaranteed tasty fresh pizza every day. Their Soderberg Pavillion, situated in Simpson Loan, is bright, airy, and stylish. Their outdoor seating area even includes fluffy blankets for those sunny but chilly days.
Featured Home: 146 GFL Rose Street
After indulging in all that pizza, you’ll be ready to head home to relax and we have the perfect holiday home for you! Located on Rose Street, just meters from Princes Street, this charming one bedroom, ground floor home incredibly has a private parking space, which is extremely rare in such a central home. The location is very hard to beat.
