A little bit of Italy in St Stephen St

Real Italian coffee , real Italian owners and real Italian snacks, though I am very fond on the potato scone with pancetta- a real Italo- Scottish combo.

I popped in here for breakfast. The staff were friendly, the food and price were great. The decor is unusual and fun. I will certainly go back there for lunch and a coffee.

Go here a lot for an Italian style coffee. Also a big fan if the toasted flatbreads the inter piadine. One of the nicest sunny spots in Edinburgh in the afternoon and the owners are very nice (a bit surprised that some of the other reviews say different)

This is a lovely Italian cafe with simple but lovely food. The paninis are very tasty and are the genuine Italian ones, not the doughy ones you often get in the UK. The coffee is also excellent, can't think of a better cup anywhere in Edinburgh. I find the owners very friendly, they made a fuss of my dog and... More

I go here a lot. The reason is simple - great coffee and fantastic sandwiches and snacks. It's small - there are only a few tables, but any ex-pat Italian should feel right at home. The radio is Italian, as are the sweets, and all manner of delectable sandwiches. And some outdoor seating on St Stephen Street if you feel... More

This is a nice little cafe. There are some lovely authentic italian touches such as the collection of comic art and the confectionery. Having said that the service leaves a lot to be desired. The couple who run it are unfiendly in the extreme and seem to begrudge the presence of customers in their cafe. On my LAST visit my... More

Wow this place is amazing :) Been here several times on a Saturday afternoon! Beautiful Italian style lunches..really gives the feel that you're on holiday. Staff are extremely friendly and professional and build good relationships with their customers. Located in the lovely Stockbridge, this place couldn't get better! I recommend getting the mint milkshake! ;)

On first appearancs seems like a nice cafe in heart of Stockbridge. Staff unfriendly and barely mumbled anything at me. Soup - to takeaway - with no bread (despite menu stating bread) was £3.00! What I got was grey dishwater in a small paper cup. It was lukewarm, gritty and completely underseasoned. The menu proferred "pancetta and wine" zuppa. I... More

Nice quality coffee in a very small shop. Seating is limited both inside and out. The staff seem to think of it as an extension of their living room - if you are part of the select few you will get a smile and a few words, if not, you will be served while avoiding eye contact. Odd really but... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighborhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighborhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
