So on the train to Edinburgh, we overheard a conversation about fried pizza. Later we were told it's a must for anyone on their way home from the pub or the club. Once in Edinburgh, while asking about the rumored fried pizza, we were told that piccante is the spot to go to and it did NOT disappoint. We got taken care of by "Sal" who's also one of the owners. He asked us where we were from, etc and made sure we got exactly what we were looking for. He even we as far as letting us come around the counter so we can see the whole process. The whole staff is amazing and they were serving fried mars bars to several satisfied clients around the place. Also, there's tons of pictures of satisfied customers around the restaurant. Great, great spot in Edinburgh to grab a bite.

I've been eating here for years (about 12 I suppose) and never thought to write a review.
Food is good - I recommend the chicken!
Staff are friendly, too. This place turns into a mini nightclub at weekends and is open till the wee small hours.

Fish 'n' chips the modern and fun way. Just have a look at their menu! Many choices including healthier options for fish, their chips are delicious, the environment fun and colourful - doesn't look like your average chippie. Really, can't blame them. Big fan!

We booked using JustEat.co.uk because they appeared to have a good selection of food - however the service was very slow and the delivery person was a bit rude.

We got the food and the chips were soggy and tasted as if they had been sitting around all day.

Overall - I would recommend you not eating here!

Here is your chance.
Cafe Piccante pays tribute to Scotland's love for fried food. These guys will fry anything for you. Including a fully cooked pizza.
Once the novelty of the fried Mars bar (which is delicious) wears out, the rest of the experience is mediocre.
