This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Malcolm Innes’ Edinburgh’s eateries, including The Apartment, The Outsider and Ting Thai Caravan, have always been noteworthy affairs, so odds are his latest project will be worth checking out sooner rather than later. Located in the former Olive Tree on the corner of Marshall Street, the interior of the building has been almost entirely rebuilt. Fitted with a custom-designed wood-burning oven, fired by beech and oak chips, it is capable of temperatures approaching 600ºC and staff spent a month in Naples training at the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (where they finished top of the class). Other plans include a heated sun trap terrace and beer, wine and prosecco on tap. While pizza will be mainstay, the menu is shaping up to be an all-day offering from breakfast right through to late dining, with brunch items, grilled dishes and salads all available too.
