Popped in for a before dinner time snack and a glass of wine. Ended up getting the charcuterie and cheese plate with wine pairing for the cheese. What a delight! Service was perfect - just attentive as needed. Atmosphere was nice. There was enough noise so that no ones conversation stood out to us, but we were able to have... More

For our latest visit, we had the delicious soup of the day, which... More

This is a nice 'enoteca' in the heart of Edinburgh. I had one of the best pasta outside Italy. Nice atmosphere too.

The starters were great, and included a homemade stew of Chorizo and beans which was yummy. This was followed by excellent fish mains and a rather good... More

We ate at Ecco Vino on our first night in Edinburgh. We rang first to book a table for two but was told that they don't take bookings on Friday and Saturday's. We showed up and was shown to our table. Then we were left for 10 minutes without a menu. Just as we were about to leave my partner... More

We had a beautiful 3 course dinner here recently and some excellent wine. Would recommend for lunch too or even just for a drink and some antipasti - it was fantastic! The staff were very helpful with menu recommendations and most welcoming. Can't wait to go back again!
