Informal, relaxed, cosy. Limited but delicious menu. I love it.

I had a chorizo salad but have been a few times and had risotto or pasta all of which have been good. You can't book a table at the weekend but I've managed to never wait more than a few minutes. The wine is good too. But the best thing about ecco vino is the atmosphere, nice lighting and cosy.... read more

We should have booked something for a Saturday night in Edinburgh - we came across this wine bar/restaurant by chance and thought it might be OK. It was busy and fairly noisy and the staff were running about all over the place. But we ordered our drinks and had a look at the menu. We started with the Charcuterie Plate... More

We stumbled upon this place when walking around Edinburgh. We liked the look of the menu so had lunch. The service was great. The waitress and chef were both lovely. For starters we had bruchetta and soup, both of which were delicious. The ingredients were fresh and packed full of flavour. Mains we had melanzane parmigiana and creamy penne. The... More

Called in here as close to hotel and didn't want to travel far. The place was full- a good sign for a Sunday night. Only one waitress on for about 25 covers so service was a little slow but it she was delightful and helpful. My daughter asked for a plain tomato sauce on pasta which they mustered up no... More

Ecco Vino never fails to delight! A fantastic range of wines and the most delicious freshly cooked rustic Italian food in this little wine bar; this is the first time I have taken my Italian friend who is exceptionally difficult to please food wise but even she was impressed! Whether it's something to eat or just out for a drink... More

Love this bar/restaurant having discovered it in December 2014. Find the staff to be very friendly and welcoming and the space to stunning inside. Have lived on Edinburgh for over ten years and cannot believe I haven't been in before. Great space to go and enjoy a cracking wine with some awesome food. Prices are reasonable and the waiters are... More

Me and my cousin were looking for a place to go to share a platter. I've seen Ecco Vino on internet, never been there before and we decided to try. We took the large platter : it was really tasty and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. We ended our dinner by a succulent homemade brownie.
