Steak | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Booked for a special birthday - and this was noted in the service we received and the table allocated to us, done quietly but with real thought put in. The food was amazing - the best meal out we’d had in a significant amount of time. The cocktail list was also good and offered something new that was also very more-ish. More

NapizzaNapizza

Italian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

If it is delicious, authentic Neapolitan pizza your taste-buds are craving, Napizza works to produce the best Italian pizza, made solely from natural Italian products. Bringing a little taste of Napoli to Scotland is what Napizza has done and continues to do every day since 2016.

Outside Italy, many people are unaware of what a truly authentic and ‘real’ pizza is, believing that by eating pizza, you are stuffing your face with food which is unhealthy and dripping in grease. In fact, pizza is just the opposite, with the first ever pizza being invented in Naples in the 19th century, a true Neapolitan pizza is made from the ingredients of flour, water, yeast, and salt. Adding fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella gives a simple, yet healthy and mouth-wateringly delicious pizza that will leave everyone reaching for one more slice.More
