i have been here a number of times now when over on business and I have to say that from the moment you are greeted at the door with Italian staff the experience is excellent. The food is very good and reasonably priced (starter, main and drink c.£25) which is what you would expect to pay in most restaurants. Any... More

We were there on Sunday to celebrate a 70th birthday so our party was quite large. The birthday 'girl' and her husband are regulars so staff knew them well. Our table was laid out for us and once everyone had arrived and sat wine quickly served. We had a set menu to choose from. We had aubergine gratin and minestrone... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
