Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

It can be hard to make antipasti seem interesting and original, but Origano manages it. Sure, their sharing platters are all meats and breads (as you would expect), but they are made of high-quality, flavoursome ingredients. The breads are infused with rosemary and garlic, and there is a wide selection of cured meats, from Parma ham to salami. Other starters include salads and garlic bread, but it's clear where their specialities lie. And speaking of specialities: the pizza here is something of local legend. With three size options to choose from, there's something for every stomach and there’s a good range of toppings to boot – everything from your classic Margarita to something a little more special (they aren’t afraid to bring out the truffle oil). The restaurant can be a little crowded, and you will need to book in advance, but there's a reason for that: it just might be the best pizza this side of Leith Walk.

  • High point: Excellent pizza
