Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This perpetually busy pizzeria has made a great name for itself over the past eight years. Located in the quieter northern half of Leith Walk, its Grade C-listed premises (formerly the Victoria India Rubber Mill) have been tastefully decorated, with a small bar area perfect for an aperitif or two; the effect is cosy and romantic. The menu is resolutely focused on pizza, with no fewer than 21 on offer (plus gluten-free versions). If you're wary of consuming too much bread, then your choices are rather limited to olives to start or a choice of salad or lasagne as a main dish. But the pizzas are very much the star attraction, with beautiful golden thin crusts and absolutely loaded with toppings. Available in one of three sizes, the largest would test the most voracious appetite, although the prices are very reasonable indeed. To finish, the tiramisu offers some sweet balance to all that dough.

Tried and tested pizza joints in Edinburgh

A lot of thought goes into making good pizza, you know. From planning the cheese to tomato ratio to just how crispy the base needs to be, it ain't an easy job, and it's equally tricky trying to pick somewhere to eat it. We've narrowed down the selection…
