Award Winning Pizzas at La Favorita

An Authentic Italian Pizzeria Experience

One of Britain’s best pizzerias, La Favorita has won numerous awards in recent years and is hugely popular with local residents and visitors to Edinburgh.  Delicious, fresh, authentic Italian food is served up throughout the day and evening in chic, contemporary surroundings, with a typically bustling Italian pizzeria’s family friendly atmosphere, offering a true home from home experience and friendly Italian hospitality for which the Crolla family are renowned.

As a third-generation Italian family restaurant, we know exactly what genuine Italian food is all about and use only the finest Italian ingredients for our pizza and pasta.  Freshly made dough from Padova, Veneto, forms the basis of our pizzas, topped with mouth-watering ingredients and cooked in our revolving 300C log-fired Italian ovens to give that special crispness and unmistakable smoky flavour.

While our authentic thin crust Italian pizzas are the highlight and everyone’s favourite, La Favorita offers so much more – our delicious gourmet Italian pastas are made to order, or you can enjoy tasty options from the grill – cooked to your liking, with a great choice of antipasti starters, fresh salads and indulgent freshly made desserts.
