I have visited this restaurant many times and was looking forward to my Saturday lunch but what a disappointment. The king prawns were dry and tough no hint of chilli or garlic they had been heated through dumped on a plate with a slice of lemon and wilting rocket. The Parma ham was taken straight from a packet, I watched... More

We ordered bread and olives, penne and tomato, chorizo and potato salad and risotto. The wine was picpoult de pinot and good. The meal was tepid. Only the risotto survived. Is h. Management very kind but need to actually ask what would be required to make food acceptable.

My husband and I went her for dinner after a tour of the Real Mary King’s Close tour. The smoked salmon with risotto was delicious. Great food, location and service. The wine suggestions with the hors d’oeuvre were wonderful. Highly recommend.

Ate at this restaurant our first night in Edinburgh after finding it reviewed on trip advisor. Small and would suggest reservations. Limited menu but worth the wait for the food. Was tasty and did not feel rushed. Not great ambience but definitely a slice of Italy in Scotland

Only had time for a drink but staff were fantastically accommodating and the atmosphere buzzing. The open kitchen gave a chance to watch the exquisite looking food being prepared. The menu was really appealing, the anti pasti lolled exceptional and judging by other reviews, we really missed out by not having time to sample more. Will definitely make it a... More

Eating as one can be difficult as you feel bad occupying a table that would take 2 or 4 people. The staff at Ecco Vino were happy to provide me with a small bar table where I wasn't taking up more room than I had to. I had a great chorizo and pepper pasta dish which was great value for... More

A group of us arrived on a wet Saturday night just after 6.30 pm. We were lucky to get a table but despite the restaurant being busy the service was excellent. The menu included dishes for everyone (a couple of the party are vegetarians) and one side dish in particular was a real 'hit'- candied aubergine salad. We will definitely... More
