The street food pizza company already has outlets at Forrest Road, Hunter Square and St John’s Road in Corstorphine, and the latest venture opened for business on Thursday (April 15).

Already, it's proving to be a hit with locals – as evidenced by the queues on Friday.

The new slice bar, named Prom Slice, is in owner Michele Civiera’s hometown of Portobello, based out of Noble’s amusements.
