Visited for Saturday lunch with two friends. It was a catch-up lunch and so we were there for a couple of hours just relaxing and enjoying the lovely food and wine. The restaurant was quiet when we first arrived but got very busy until there were people waiting for tables, as it is only a small place. We really enjoyed... More

I've been here twice and last time was in August with my parents from Italy. Both the visits were wonderful with very high quality food, very good and well presented. The ambient is lovely and the service friendly. Is one of the best restaurant visited since I live in Edinburgh.

Although the restaurant wasn't busy at all, it took around 40 min to bright our pasta. The food is nice but the service is terrible

Booked 2 nights previously to come here for pre-theatre meal. Chose from the a la carte - lovely food. We all had something different, and everyone was pleased with their choice. Staff were very friendly without being false. And the home-made chips which came with the great steak were to die for! Will definitely be back.

Eight of us ate here on the fixed price lunch menu. I can honestly say that the service we received was second to none. The food, so reasonably priced at £9.95 for 2 courses, was delicious. Our group was celebrating a family birthday and everyone from my 17 year old niece to my 80+year old mother (sorry mum) couldn't fault... More

We stumbled on this little Italian restaurant when we found others had been fully booked. We were seated quickly and the service was excellent. Food was delicious and not overly priced. We would recommend it to anyone who likes Italian food.

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
