Edinburgh has welcomed Italian immigrants for well over 100 years, and the result is that the Scottish capital is full of fantastic places to eat. In the 20th century, Italians introduced ice cream to the Scots, they opened cafes to serve them breakfasts, and trattorias to teach them about authentic pasta. But, more than anything else, they opened some excellent pizza restaurants in Edinburgh. These days, the capital is home to some outstanding pizza restaurants, and you can take your pick by booking with Quandoo.
Few foods are as well suited to a casual lunch with friends. You can order up a variety of options with a whole galaxy of toppings, then mix and match and try everything on the menu at Edinburgh's pizza restaurants. If you are in town for a shopping trip to Princes Street, or just paying a tourist visit to the Castle, break up your day by booking a table at one of the city's pizzerias and fill up on margaritas, funghi, Napoletana or meaty varieties.
Edinburgh is paradise for pizza fans. For one thing there's a huge Italian community serving up exotic options like sourdough and spelt bases, or pecorino stuffed crusts. The dishes on offer will also come with fresh seafood toppings sourced straight from the oceans around Scotland, or with first-rate Aberdeen Angus beef. It's an unbeatable blend of local ingredients and Italian expertise, and you can experience it whenever you like by booking tables at the capital's best pizzerias.
It doesn't matter where you are in the city: there will be excellent pizzerias in every corner of the capital. Enjoy a meal by the Firth of Forth in Leith, find the ideal spot to grab a pizza at restaurants in Edinburgh New Town, or pick somewhere right next to the University. If you are heading to a rugby match, there are places to eat near Murrayfield, and there's no shortage of great pizzerias to enjoy during the Festival either. Whenever you visit, why not make it an Italian feast from start to finish? Book a table with Quandoo and you can enjoy fine wines, starters, delicious desserts, and the unique ambience of Edinburgh's top pizza restaurants.
