Incredible can’t believe it vegan pasta! Not had anything four cheese since being vegan that was that impressive. Wow. Waiter was super nice, great service and love his cocktail menu that’s he created! Only thing would say is that I think we picked the wrong starter, caprese was just tomatoes and tofu wasn’t like ricotta at all, so not as expected. I’m sure others are wonderful if mains are anything to go by! Very disappointed the tiramisu had sold out would have loved to try. Will have to visit Edinburgh again just to go back. Thanks :)

The service wasn't great - we waited for ages for our dirty plates to be removed we finished our starters. They weren't so when the main came, we had to move them about ourselves. The waiter wasn't too busy as he was assembling pizza boxes behind the counter. Also, didn't ask whether it was okay to fill water glasses and just crept up from behind on my boyfriend.

I recall service to have been much better in the past.

The starter was nice (caprese salad), pizzas weren't particularly great - especially given the price. Dessert (tiramisu) didn't taste like tiramisu at all. I had one from novapizza before and this one was nothing like it.

Overall not a great experience and a significant dent in my wallet for a very average dinner that we were hoping would be nice and special.

Amazing service and food for me and my mum visiting from Glasgow - our server was an absolute star chatting to us and helping my mum out with options for gluten free meals and his recommendations. Food was out of this world, the penne arrabiata was such a highlight we were talking about it all the way back home the next day! So many options and great portions so you don’t feel full. Wine was also lovely! Social distancing was fantastic, really nice and cosy so could hear each other and enjoy the atmosphere. Would absolutely come back next time and will recommend to all friends, vegan and non vegan!

The sole person serving was friendly and efficient, however with a full restaraunt and a constant stream of take aways getting picked up we inevitably had to wait. Deliverers arriving at the door facing us every few minutes didn't add to the experience.

Food was fine and just what we wanted. Our disappointment was an hour and 15 in when we ordered a bottle of Prosecco ... the waitress brought it to our table opened and told us we only had 15 minutes left. This time limit was not specified at the time of booking and was certainly not pointed out to us when we ordered the bottle of Prosecco. We were then asked to leave as the table was booked. Very sly to be honest given we were charged £25 to drink a bottle in 15 mins (we insisted on taking it out in take-out cups).

We love Sorra Lella the owners other Vegan restaurant, so we thought we would try Nova Pizza. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. There is a problem with Deliveroo drivers coming and going, the door getting constantly opened makes it really cold. We both had a Calzone pizza. My partner loved hers. Mine was ok, but it was really cold and mushy in the centre, unmelted cheese and sloppy veg. I had to leave the centre of it and eat the edges. Our cheesecake desserts were lovely, really tasty. The bill was £65 which I think is steep for 2 courses and one alcoholic drink. We would go back but won’t be having the Calzone. I should have told the waiter on the night, but it’s so hard just now with everyone trying to make a living.

Ive been there with my boyfriend (not vegan) and he loved it as well. His comment was “best carbonara ever I had in Edinburgh” and we’re italian so the carbonara is part of our culture. I’ll be back next week with my friend and I can’t wait for it.
Food was amazing and the waiter was really nice. My favorite restaurant ever😍

The best vegan pizza I have tried by a long shot (the pizza Mediterranea is highly recommended). The wine and espresso martinis were also excellent. I can't wait to return and try some of the other dishes.

Amazing pizza especially for gf and vegan options. Just a shame there was just one waiter and therefore no attention to the tables. Would definitely order the pizza to takeaway.

Absolutely freezing! I booked this for my 5 year wedding anniversary. We were put at a table next to the front door, it's a small venue so I suppose every table would feel the same but the front door was kept wide open, we both had to sit with jackets on, hands and feet freezing, I asked about closing the front door and was told no because of covid. There was a spare table behind us closer to the bar and slightly further from the door, I asked if we could be moved, reply no we have people coming in 10 minutes. There was a fan above the door, not sure if it blew hot air or if it was air conditioning however if a heater it should have been on. It was like sitting outside and it completely ruined our experience. I could see people at other tables also sitting on their hands.
Also we ordered foccacia garlic and mozzarella bread and were given a flat garlic pizza....wont be back.

Very refreshing to have a place which is 100% vegan and not have to worry about any animal products. Overall very good, the only problem was that as it's a small place, a couple of loud tables spoilt the ambience for us and often we couldn't hear our own conversation!

The food was generally tasty. But it’s vegan food trying to replicate meaty food which in my opinion isn’t as tasty as making new recipes out of vegan food.

Disappointed to pay nearly a fiver for a side salad and there not even be a splash of olive oil on it. Also paid nearly a fiver for a bowl of olives and they came swimming in brine straight out of the fridge.

Small and there was nice atmosphere regardless.

Very nice all-vegan restaurant. My first time with vegan Italian food. The cheese seems much heavier than real cheese--couldn't eat nearly as much of it in one sitting! But delicious.

NovaPizza is a safe bet for great food. Pizzas are outstanding and the pasta is great too. Love that there's nowadays plenty of other mains to choose from too. I don't tend to go for a starter because most are bread based which before a pizza is a little bit too much dough for me. But they still look tasty and I did have a bite of a vegan salmon starter a while back that was simply divine. Service is always good and friendly. It's a small place so not noisy. Very cosy and a top choice for either an evening out with friends and family, or an intimate date. 5 stars!

Both staff members serving us were really nice, made sure to check back regularly, and asked us what we'd thought of the new menu. Food and cocktails were absolutely delicious, I had a white base pizza with vegan blue cheese, walnuts and pears and my girlfriend had a tagliatelle bolognaise. The amaretto sour, and basil daiquiri cocktails were brilliant. The black Manhattan was a little strong, and I usually like strong cocktails like negroni and old fashioned but I don't think the ingredients mix with the black Manhattan was quite right. A small complaint that was easily forgotten when everything else was so good! Would highly recommend to vegans and beyond, as the food is delicious regardless of whether you normally eat meat and dairy - you won't miss either when you eat at Nova!

Fantastic vegetarian pizzeria! First time I had the pleasure to eat seitan (high protein wheat based food) on a pizza. My partner and I got 2 pizzas and a delicious garlic focaccia. The food was served piping hot and both the pizzas and the focaccia had a nice soft dough without being too thick. Toppings were generous (unlike some pizzeria where they put 5 olives only). The place is quaint and cosy, all hygiene measure were taken correctly. Super recommended! :)
