A couple of weeks ago, I've been to Asti with my boyfriend for our one year anniversary and we both had a lovely night. Food was succulent, the service excellent and a cosy and lovely atmosphere. Will return!

Walking down Broughton Street on a sleety-grey Edinburgh day, I picked this place at random. What a find! Good coffee, free wifi, and friendly staff had won me over before I ate anything, but the food was great too. A huge rice ball stuffed with mozzarella and tomato, with a delicious tomato sauce, salad and a cheeky tiramisu set me... More

Having been at the restaurant a number of times I was surprised that I had not previously reviewed it. If you want really good Italian food, this is the place to visit. The staff are very friendly and cater for your needs without being intrusive. The food cost is very reasonable given Edinburgh's inflated restaurant prices. Give it a try!

We tried out this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews and as it was close to our hotel. We were not disappointed. The starters were lovely, as were the main courses. The dessert was ok but nothing special. However, it came to less than £50 for a 3-course meal for the two of us, and that included £20 for... More

Lovely authentic restaurant. Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Great location for shopping, Omni centre and theatre. Went last month on the recommendation of friends. It was so good have told other friends bat it and they all agree a super find. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

I have to say this is a little gem I have visited twice in the last two months and service and food excellent. Fantastic menu with good choices but not too many quality of food and flavour excellent and the service tremendous. I have recommended to friends who have also visited and would not hesitate to recommend further.
