Welcome to Novapizza Vegan Kitchen. Our cuisine is extremely creative and delicious. We create every vegan pizza from scratch and using only fresh dough made in the restaurant. We experiment with flavours and preparation methods to make each dish taste perfect.

We work with 100% Organic and Fair Trade suppliers to make a difference in the world. Personally, we believe that vegan food should be at the best standard of the food industry.

Unfortunately we can not cater to groups containing children under the age of 5 due to licensing restrictions. Though our sister restaurant Sora Lella, can accommodate.

This was the best vegan pizza and tiramisu I have ever had. They didn’t have ingredients for a drink I asked for (it wasn’t on the menu) but they went out to buy stuff for it anyway. Quality service and amazing food. What more can you ask for!!

Wow, my wife and I have recently changed to a plant based diet. This is the first place we’ve tried and totally the best choice for our first vegan meal out. The food is truly amazing so full of flavour, presentation was beautiful and the service was awesome also. Intimate place with a lovely atmosphere and that peanut butter jam cheesecake rocks. See you again soon!!!

Really cosy, great service. The man serving was super friendly. The food itself was beautiful, and the portion sizes were really generous (we were totally stuffed). We would definitely love to come back soon and tell our family! Just a few minor points that could be improved- our white wine was room temperature and not chilled beforehand. I should have mentioned it at the time, so thats on me really. Eating our pasta out of frying pans instead of plates didn't feel very classy, and the random music didn't feel in keeping with the Italian decor. But overall, still a lovely experience.

After months of restaurants being closed due to covid restrictions we had an amazing first experience back at Nova! The service was quick and cheerful, the food was fantastic with loads of options and it was just a lovely, cozy atmosphere. We’ll definitely be back again!

Firstly we were seated next to the door which constantly had delivery drivers coming in and out. Secondly the food which was so bland it had absolutely no taste. I ordered and espresso which was not made correctly. The table water we were given was also terrible it had a horrible chemical taste. I was then handed a rather large bill for this experience.

Food was delicious, different types of vegan cheeses, great variety of pizzas and pastas, the girl serving us was very friendly and food was served promptly. Covid rules were followed and the place was clean. It's a vegan heaven, we will definitely be coming back to try everything off the menu. Tiramisu was delicious too, great vegan Italian experience.

Super recommended. I had a delicious garlic pizza, olives, pizza pesto e patate and pizza seitan and porcini with my other half.

The restaurant is kept very clean and the staff is very polite and makes you feel at home. So glad that they re-opened after the lockdown!

Visited the restaurant whilst visiting my son. I’m not a vegan, but the food was exceptional. Starters, pasta and pizza were all excellent. Pasta portions were HUGE! I would recommend booking if you intend to visit due the the limited number of tables

Lovely wee restaurant, like the decor and the general vibe. Would definitely recommend to others and would return.

However, just a few points for feedback - as we were an early dinner booking, the venue was quite quiet when we arrived. On arrival we were welcomed and everything was lovely.

About 10 minutes after we’d be sat down, one of the male waiters put on his own music...and then proceeded to sing (either the entire song or just a few lines) of every song right up until we were half way through mains. Won’t lie - it was infuriating. Also ruined the mood of the dinner as we listened to everything from my chemical romance to musical numbers.

Our starters were absolutely delicious! I cannot fault the kitchen and the range of food was amazing. My only complaint was that our food was quite oily (pizza was dripping with oil as was my seitan dish). Being vegan myself, I think this is because the biolife seitan that comes in a jar tends to be really oiley and saturated with the oils inside the jar. Again, couldn’t fault the taste of the food - just might be an idea to look at experimenting with different seitan products.

Overall, I’d definitely be back again. The female waitress who served us was lovely (as was the male despite his vocals). I hate giving a venue a mixed review in this current climate, but hopefully it can be feedback constructively.

So happy I found this place after just going vegan this year it’s going to be a definite go to! A little pricey but in line with plenty of other Edinburgh restaurants and vegan ingredients are notoriously more expensive, plus the portions are huge so it’s still good value.

Can’t wait to bring my non vegan family and partner here and try and convince them to make the switch! Even if they don’t, it’s nice knowing there are places we can all go and enjoy together without feeling like I’m missing out on anything at all.
