Civerino’s – Meatball and porcini ragu
Now established as part of the friendly family fabric of Edinburgh Italian eateries, Civerino’s is a great place for a quick or slow pizza stop. You can munch by the slice on the go, or stay and take down one on their excellent topping combos.

Pizza Mafia – Ham & Mushroom
Some really good pizza is served in the drab location of Princes Mall by the folks at Pizza Mafia. If it was in a different location, I’m convinced this would be one of the more popular pizza slice joints in the city.

Three Coins – Meat Feast
Nowhere could look a less likely home to pizza excellence than Three Coins. I’m not sure about the rest of their menu, but their pizzas, cooked in no time due to their super-thin bases, are absolutely remarkable.
