    I love the food at pizza Posto and the servers were very nice, though maybe a little inexperienced this time, that’s completely forgivable. However the atmosphere was a bit odd as it seemed there were some issues with the lighting - which kept changing from light to dark - and the music volume, especially in the lead up to a very very loud rendition of happy birthday. We were seated upstairs, which is much nicer since the refurbishment and I did not see downstairs. However when two of our party try use the toilets and were told they were all out of order, which is I think unacceptable for a restaurant.

    Excellent pizzas - well made with interesting toppings, but plenty of choice for people who want a simpler option. Ingredients clearly high quality. It’s a bustling place with energy and some noise but these add to the atmosphere if you like that (we do).

    It's always great going to Pizza Posto. Francesco and his team are fantastic! I had my 4 young nephew's with me, it was their first visit, and they loved it, especially when the ice cream came. The welcome and hospitality from all the team is just great.

    I have been to Pizza Posto a few times before and I will definitely be coming back very soon again. Food, service and staff all excellent. Also, our meal was very good value for money. I would have hesitation in recommending Pizza Posto to any of my friends.

    We love to visit Pizza Posto every time we are in Edinburgh. This was our first visit since the new refit. New decor is beautiful, the same amazing service, and the same amazing pizza. Francesco always goes out of his way to speak with my son and listens to his Italian. Over & above every time!

    Excellent food. Service was friendly and very quick but not rushed. Only slight issue was the pizza was a little ‘wet’ in the centre meaning you couldn’t really lift the slices but we just used cutlery!

    We went here for a quick meal before going to the theatre over the road. Shame there isn’t a pre- theatre menu but service was rapid irrespective. My margarita pizza with chillies was good though I didn’t get too many chillies for the £2 topping cost. Both of our pizzas were nicely cooked and the rose wine was well priced. We would go again.
