One of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Edinburgh. Always a joy to visit, with amazing food and friendly service, it should be on anyone's list of eateries to visit in the city.

The staff was amazing, we had a lovely time there. The place is quite small but they managed to squeez us in which was very nice of them.

A brilliant place for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores! Great choice of pizzas, pastas and calzones to suit every taste. Nice cosy ambience too. Highly recommended.

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.

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 :)

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.

Brilliant! Delicious food, HUGE portions, incredible choice for vegans, friendly staff and the service was speedy enough for us to squeeze a two course meal into an hour break between Fringe shows! I had a Vegan, GF Gnocchi dish which was incredible, even my cheese-eating, non-coeliac spouse said he'd order it the next time we were there. NovaPizza will definitely be on the itinerary when we return to Edinburgh.

Food was good but very slow. Four members of staff in the back but only one waiteress who was working so exceptionally hard. If I could write a review just about her I would give full stars, very polite and worked very well under pressure. However, we were not told when the kitchen would be closing and the dessert pizza we ordered came out as only two slices (??) bad way for the management to treat customers and because of this I doubt we will be returning. It’s a shame because the poor waitress was absolutely superb

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.
