About The Jolly Ristorante

A friendly, neighbourhood Italian restaurant in Edinburgh’s Elm Row, The Jolly Ristorante has built up a justifiably excellent reputation among New Town locals. Their wood-fired oven – the only of it’s kind in Edinburgh – churns out pizzas with that inimitable smoky taste, and their pastas are everything one would expect from a top-notch Italian restaurant. They’ve been there for 40 years, and continue to serve their loyal public – so loyal in fact, that we recommend booking a table now to avoid disappointment.

The Jolly Ristorante are keeping up that tradition, and can boast over 40 years on the Edinburgh restaurant scene, as well as the oldest continually-active wood-fired pizza oven in the city. Situated on Elm Row in the New Town, just yards from both Leith Walk and Princes Street, they serve an Italian menu that is guaranteed to satisfy the whole family.

The joy of eating at Jolly Ristorante on Elm Row in the New Town is the pizzas. Their oven, as mentioned, is the oldest still in operation in Edinburgh, and the pizzas are all cooked to order. Toppings are fresh and generously portioned, and diners can choose from a menu as long as your arm. There are plenty of pasta options as well, and a fully-stocked bar and wine list. Italian food is a family affair, and this is truly a restaurant for the whole family to enjoy, so book your table now.

This quaint restaurant has a 70s feel about it. The walls are decorated with Italian views. The place mats are famous Edinburgh landmarks. Vito, the Man, is a great guy. The two young waitresses had a lovely manner. For value for money, superb grub!

Been going to the Jollyfor over 30years. A very busy family run Italian. Homemade pizza cooked in a traditional wood burning oven, always fantastic. Shabby decor adds to its charm and atmosphere and lovely staff.

First time we have been here for lunch. We were looking for somewhere to eat at the start of our holidays when my wife remembered that they did a set 3 course lunch for £6.50 so given that we love their a la Carte menu we did not think ml this was a gamble. 3 garlic bread starters 3half pizza half pasta mains and 3 ice cream plus 3 pepsi colas all for under £25.00 what's not too like.

We have been visiting The Jolly regularly for the past 30 years and always enjoy the experience - especially the friendliness of staff and their 'banter'. However, on this latest occasion we felt that neither the food nor the service was up to the usual standard: the normal 'sparkle' was missing. This latest experience will not prevent us from going to The Jolly again in future, but has slightly tarnished our view of the restaurant. We would still recommend it to friends but perhaps no longer unreservedly.

Great food and service as always. Hassle free exeperaince, staff polite and do what they can to ensure a great evening. Can spend a short time or all night, you don't feel like you are getting pushed out. Happy to recommend to friends and family...any excuse is good enough to eat here.

Excellent. Quality, quantity, friendly and affordable. Be recommended for couples, friends and families. The pizzas are huge and delicious. The only negative point is the music, maybe a little loud.
