The food was, in one word - amazing! It was my first time going there. We went after my friend told me she had been recommended some place serving vegan pizza and I could not wait to see what options there would be and what it would taste like. We ordered a pasta dish with a vegan creamy "salmon" and a vegan four cheese pizza. I could have never imagined it would taste so good :D Our waitress was very friendly and the music selection was good. Would definitely recommend :)

Such good food! I'm vegan myself and think this is one of the best places for vegan food in Edinburgh. A must get is the Dolce Calzone- it's like a Nutella filled calzone. Amazing!

We had a lovely casual lunch at this little pizza and pasta restaurant. The menu is extensive and we went there for their huge list of vegan options. The pizza base was really tasty and if you choose the right toppings, you'll have a delicious meal. The vegan cheesecake was out of this world and the service was fast and efficient. It appears that 99% of their vegan meals have soy in them [all the cheeses and meat replacements were soya based] and of course the cheese cake was also made using soy. So if that is a problem for you [as it was for me] then many of their meals will not be suitable without some adjustments. All in all: it was a nice lunch and we will return.

I. and two friends, enjoyed a very nice pasta lunch at this restaurant. We were the only people to start with. Our table was booked for 12.30 and there's a notice outside saying they start serving at 12.30. The door looked firmly closed, but as we'd all arrived I thought I'd give it a try and it did open. Once we were in the doors were opened properly and eventually we were joined by other diners. The meal was very tasty and service was splendid.

There's a really good selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, much broader then most places we have been to. We had the garlic bread to start which was delicious followed by a vegetable pizza and pepperoni calzone both of which were really good. The service and the atmosphere were both great, we would recommend this place to anyone visiting or living in Edinburgh.

Nova Pizza is my favourite pizzeria, and the sheer number of vegan options is amazing. My wife and I always order very different pizzas, but they are always exceptional. This time I had a white pizza with carbonara, which was fantastic, perfect base texture and toppings cooked really well. The vegan cheesecake is also sublime, and worth going for that alone!

Delicious food and great service as always. A haven for vegans and their Omni partners who are not totally convinced about vegan food... the only thing I would say is I would love to see more 'natural' ingredients for the pizzas. I understand the whole fake meat thing is to appeal to omnis but as a vegan who actually loves vegetables some creative vegetable vegan pizzas would be fabulous! Thank you :)

The best pizza I've ever had. Vegan salmon was really rich and flavourful and the base was perfect. My partner had vegan salmon pasta which was also sublime. Also was excellent value, coming in at under £50 for a table of 4. Strongly recommend if you're in Edinburgh and fancy a pizza, vegan or not!

Foe vegans Edinburgh just keeps on getting better. Delighted to have discovered Nova Pizza. A small venue but informal and friendly with an extensive menu. It really was hard to decide on what choice to make. In the end a pasta dish each for my wife and myself, which were so tasty we decided to take a pizza away with us too. Will definitely be back.

Food quality and service was perfect as usual. Only thing the place was too hot, because it was not possible to open the door and get some fresh air (it would have frozen the table close to the door). Would be great to have some window or air conditioning to refresh the place!

An amazing vegan dinner! Novapizza's staff were lovely and my friend and I were served quickly. I ordered a calzone which was delicious, and my non-vegan friend was very impressed with her gnocchi. A great place for dinner in Edinburgh - just make sure to book as it (unsurprisingly) gets full quickly.

Good attentive service, excellent selection of pizza and more than enough choice for a non-vegetarian such as myself. My wife (who is vegetarian) really enjoyed being able to choose from the whole menu - especially a calzone which rarely if ever appears as a vegetarian option ay mainstream restaurants. Both our calzone were excellent. Good base, good sauce and brimful of filling.

When we got to the Nova they didn't have the reservation from Quandoo, but luckily there were only two of us and got us in after a small wait. The food was amazing and our server was extremely sweet. We are very sad Nova Pizza is so far away from us!

It was lovely, I had passed it many times when up visiting my daughter but booked it so myself and my best friend could have a meal and a catch-up and not be rushed out. The meal was gorgeous and the service was lovely and I will definitely be going back.

As someone who is a gluten free vegan I don't think I have ever been anywhere where there is this much choice! I had the gluten free vegan vegan pizza which was absolutely delicious!! I will definitely be back! I'm also so glad we booked!

The food and service were amazing and the prices are perfect for the food that you receive. Only problem would be that the restaurant was quite small and we seemed to be squashed near the enterance so that the door kept bumping into us and the table was very wobbly. Would highly recommend though especially if you love vegetarian/vegan food.

Good vegan pizza but not exceptional. The coke was not cold. Kind waitress though. I am a bit disappointed, I thought I would eat a better pizza regarding to all the positive reviews that I read online. But the vegan cake was really good.
