We recently visited Edinburgh & was just wandering around looking for somewhere nice to eat before going to the Playhouse Theatre. We found this little "jewel". Staff were very welcoming & helpful in our decision as to what we should have.... explained what was in each of the dishes. Our food was excellent & cooked with great care & attention,... More

I had the two course theatre menu, with salad and wine and my meal came to about 21 pounds. Completely worth it. Everything was delicious! I had eggplant parmigiana and gnocchi - both some of the best I've ever had. There were a few mix ups with my food delivery, and it did take a while to get my food... More

This restaurant advertises a pre theatre menu and looked and looked good on website. We booked for 6 at 6pm and were all seated with drinks by 6.15. The restaurant was aware we were going to the theatre 5 minutes away for 7.30 curtain. We ordered our two courses, in their time, and waited. Little happened and at about 6.45pm... More

After a few nights in Edinburgh, my husband and I were in the mood for pasta. I chose Asti based on the Trip Advisor reviews and was very pleased. The service was excellent and the food reminded me of my grandma's gnocchi. I am very picky with my Italian food and found the food delicious. Eat here.

Quality cooked breakfast for £6.99 with attentive service and excellent coffee. Very pleasant atmosphere and in a great location. Would definitely go again for breakfast and also try it for lunch and dinner.

Eight of us had a great evening of great food and service. Several had the specials and they were really good. While the place was full we had very attentive service and when all eight are pleased it has to be good. The lentil soup was incredible.

We have not enjoyed an Italian meal this much since a trip to Sicily 2 years ago! We were wandering down Broughton Street on Friday afternoon and stopped here for coffee. After reading the menu and seeing the magnificent arancini on display we made a reservation for dinner that same day. We were not disappointed. Busy restaurant but the service... More
