We frequent La Favorita regularly as it’s always a great family atmosphere with staff who go out of their way to give excellent service. And of course the food is spot on. Pizza is fabulous.

Brilliant food, service and atmosphere. Only negative was having a long wait for a table even though we’d booked and turned up on time.

We had a great time at La Favorita Pizza. It was probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. The setting was great, it was cheap and the staff was very friendly.

We had a really lovely family dining experience. The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu extensive. The fact that so much pizza and pasta could be provided to our gluten-intolerant friend was a huge bonus. Food was fabulous with a really authentic feel.

Pizza restaurants in Edinburgh are scarce, but La Favorita exceeded my expectations and probably deserves being recognised as one of the best pizzas in town. The service was great, and prices are reasonable.
