An imaginative concept where diners can create their own pizzas for takeaway or eating on the premises.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Here we have a restaurant boasting a technique that can cook a pizza in just 90 seconds. But speed is not the only thing that makes the difference at this former car park and office building that has been converted into a stylish monochrome pizzeria. There is a strong focus on locally sourced, good-quality ingredients and the environment, with everything from food waste to takeaway boxes, cutlery to beer glasses suitable for recycling. And the novelty doesn’t stop there. Diners can construct their own pizzas – choosing the dough, selecting sauce, toppings and finishing touches, before the server gives it the short, sharp cooking treatment. Everything is calorie-counted for those seeking healthy creations and all pizzas cost the same. For those who are less decisive, a half-and-half option makes it possible to create two pizzas in one, or there are pre-designed alternatives, including a chocolate and berry confection that is perfect for sharing as dessert. A self-service soda machine adds to the fun as an alternative to local beers or a limited selection of single-serve Italian wines.

Enjoy a family fun day out at the Fringe

Grab a bite to eat, chill out at the Circus Hub and catch a world-class show

Planning a day out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe can be a daunting task – with a massive 3,548 shows in 317 venues across an entire city, you may not know where to start. Add kids into that equation and it can feel like mission impossible.

Best pizza in Edinburgh

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…
