Delicious Italian, 27a Marchmont Road, EH9 1HY, Edinburgh

Whilst I would not go as far as to say this by any means the best pizza I have had outside Italy (and I do agree with the reviewer who said that these reviews may be by people with a vested interest), it's certainly a cracking little take-away with a full and varied menu.

The pizzas are traditional Italian style, with freshly baked dough bases which you will see stretched and prepared in front of you. The main ingredients are complemented by good mixture of herbs, and you have a choice of 12" or 16", which, if I am not mistaken, is quite unusual in Edinburgh. They are certainly the best take-away pizzas I have had in the 'Burgh.

The pasta, whilst we have only had it once, comes in fairly substantial portions, but wasn't overly great. I don't think it is freshly prepared, but rather reheated and delievered, in a standard foil take-out box to you, from the kitchen. It was lukewarm and not particularly interesting. Certainly not restaurant quality.

This could be a wonderful place, but for a few significant problems. Firstly, whilst they advertise a delivery service, each time I have asked for delivery I have been told there is no driver currently employed.

Secondly, a minor issue, but there is no menu available to take away with you. Which is a shame, as there is such a variety of dishes and toppings (got to love the names they have given to some of the dishes), and it would be nice to be able to peruse at home rather than in the middle of the almost always packed ordering/waiting area.

I feel bad poitning out these inadequacies, because all-in-all this really is a great pizzeria, and at exceptionally good value for the quality of pizza. The staff are wonderfully friendly and courteous, the pizzas are beautifully prepared, and it would quickly become my favourite Italian takeaway, if only the pizza wasn't almost cold by the time I have sprinted with it from the premises to my home.

Please start to deliver!

This place is a little out of the way for me which means I don't get to buy food there as often as I'd like. The delivery service does not seem to be offered so laziness means I often opt for Pizza Hut (which is an inferior product!).

However, when I do wander down to Delicious Italian, the pizzas are as delicious as they claim. Thin bases that are not doughy and tasty toppings. I have also tried their pasta too but I'm not as keen on that. The pasta seemed overcooked and it sauce was a bit oily. I'm not sure if pasta really works on a take away basis.

The staff are always friendly and chatty. The price is also very competitive. Certainly a must try.

Genuinely delicious, made to order, authentic Italian. Lots of really great pasta dishes. Prices around £6 a dish, for the quantity and quality definitely worth it!

Amazing amazing amazing food. Only downside is that they are just a takeaway - they'd have a full house every night if it was a restaurant.

Delicious Italian, 27a Marchmont Road, EH9 1HY, Edinburgh

These reviews are quite obviously written by the staff themselves... the food is fine, it's a standard Italian takeaway, and the prices are fairly good... to say it's the 'best pizza outside of Italy' could be one of the most ridiculous things I have ever read. Unless they have literally come straight here from Italy and never eaten anywhere else.

I had lasagne and it was lovely and I don't normally like lasagne. The garlic bread was very nice too. I am looking forward to trying the pizza next time.

The best Italian food in Edinburgh I've evr tasted. Very reasonable, large quantities, excellent, highly recommended. I would give it 10/10 - the real taste of Italy.

Delicious Italian, 27a Marchmont Road, EH9 1HY, Edinburgh

Good pizza, but watch the wily owner. He advertises free garlic bread with his pastas (which he'll “forget” to give you at every possibly opportunity..) leaving you in the awkward predicament of having to remind him about it each time, the news of which he often takes rather sullenly as if you’re taking some sort of a liberty in asking!

A similar response is received when you don’t provide the EXACT change, arrive 15 minutes before closing, or correct him on the order which, again, he’ll often “mishear” for the more expensive option.

A shame that these things are allowed to let down otherwise good quality food.

Shockingly slow service, and the Italian theme is just to get you in the door as all staff including cooks are Algerian so don't be fooled.

I was passing by with a friend. I had a pasta Eldorado and my friend had a pizza. Was the best food I had in Edinburgh for a very long time and very clean.
