Great food!

Went during our weekend trip to Edinburgh, met some of pals there. Lovely clean restaurant with friendly staff, and reasonably priced menu. I had the veal and it was delicious, tender and well presented. Would definitely return.

Me and my fiancé were served tonight by Junio. At the end of our meal, we were trying to find a reason to give this place 4 stars instead of 5 but could not come up with any. Food: started with baked aubergines in a rich tomato sauce (order some bred to tip in) and a buffalo di mozzarella with... More

This was the second time that we have eaten here, the first being a couple of years ago. The food was excellent, as was the service. We will visit La Piazza every time we visit Edinburgh and can't recommend it enough.

We went for an early dinner while the place wasn't so busy. Staff were very welcoming and we were given a nice table towards the back of the restaurant. Food was excellent and the whole family (fussy children included) was happy. It was a nice change to eating at the big chains and we'll definitely be going back.

Booked a table for me and four friends and had to change the dates, times etc. over and over again. The staff were always so polite and patient despite me being a total nuisance! The meal was excellent and the staff are SO friendly. I've been to La Piazza a few times and it would always be one of my... More

We were in Edinburgh for the rugby and had passed this place a couple of times over the weekend so after the game took a chance on a table being available. As expected it was very busy and as we had not booked the manager advised it would be half an hour before a table would be free. However having... More

A friend booked this restaurant after finding it on the Internet and what a great choice it was. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. They constantly ensured our drinks were topped up and the food arrived quickly. I had the Aubergine starter and Salmon Risotto for mains, both were delicious. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.
