MATTO Pizza that launched in September 2020 will launch a restaurant in the south side of the city mid-December.

One of Edinburgh’s most popular pizzerias is set to open its first restaurant in the city’s Morningside neighbourhood this December. MATTO pizza currently delivers up to 600 pizzas a night from its giant city centre pizza oven to Edinburgh’s pizza-loving population, but this will be the brand’s first dedicated diner.

The new pizzeria at 370-372 Morningside Road, will serve a selection of MATTO’S popular Neapolitan-style pizzas and authentic Italian starters and desserts that have led it to be crowned one of Edinburgh’s top takeaways on Deliveroo and UberEATS.

MATTO has become a firm favourite amongst city centre residents for its unique take on the classic Neapolitan pizza. MATTO uses a state-of-the-art wood-fired oven that cooks the pizzas in 60 seconds and uses a long, slow rise dough made with premium 00 Italian flour. Their pizzaiolos create all pizzas from scratch using only the best ingredients including, San Marzano tomatoes DOP and Fior di Latte Mozzarella as standard. They are also renowned for their creativity and the new Morningside menu will feature firm favourites including their Truffle base pizza with smoked cheese, mushrooms and rocket and Pumpkin base pizza with ‘Nduja, gorgonzola, pumpkin seeds and fresh basil; and new additions such as Pea purée base pizza with smoked speck, gorgonzola, mozzarella, figs, rocket and balsamic glaze drizzle.

The 42-seater restaurant has been designed by Edinburgh based, S-SO. They created a dynamic and engaging space to bring MATTO’S unique character to life and showcase its innovative approach to pizza. The aim is to take customers on a journey in true theatrical Neapolitan-style.  The dining space incorporates bold prints and bright colour for a dramatic effect. Guests can expect big and bold including a show stopping pizza oven taking centre stage with the design details as its cast. S-SO created different areas within the space providing more intimate dining for smaller groups, as well as larger seating areas perfect for large groups to share a slice with friends.

Co-owner Nel from MATTO Pizza, said:

“We are really excited to be opening a restaurant in Morningside. When we launched MATTO, our vision was to create authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas that were a little different but with absolutely no compromise on the quality of the ingredients. It has been a labour of love from day one and to expand so quickly, we feel incredibly lucky. It would not have been possible without the support of our loyal customers.

We hope to welcome old and new customers to the new restaurant, so we can showcase MATTO’S creativity and hospitality”.

MATTO Pizza is due to open mid-December.
