Pomo Pizzeria West End, Edinburgh

Italian

0 reviews

Italians have their own idea about what makes the perfect pizza — it’s all in the tomato sauce, which should be simple, raw and fresh. In honour of this, Pomo Pizzeria has named itself after the Italian word for tomato (pomodoro) and aims to deliver a truly authentic experience to boot. Inside, the space is sleek yet relaxed, with black & white photo murals creating a distinctly la dolce vita vibe. In other words, this is a fab spot for stylishly laidback dining with friends.
