4 of us had a lovely long relaxing evening in Ecco Vino. Our reserved table was right at the back which was great as the night was very cold so we appreciated being away from the door. We had bread, olives and oil to stave off our hunger pangs. Then 3 of us had the aubergine parmigiana and the other... More

LOVE Ecco Vino! In the heart of Edinburgh --this place really has warmth and energy. Such a friendly place --we enjoyed the food (city centre prices but it is the city centre!) but it was the service that really made it excellent. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. Delicious meal and very relaxing atmosphere. We will be making a... More

I was here for a girls night last November. As a commuter to Edinburgh, the location couldn't be much better, with Wavarley station right on the doorstep and the bus station just 10 mins walk. The service and food were superb, we were made to feel extremely welcome and the 'special' that I went for (chilli pasta with broccoli) was... More

Visited with my husband and toddler when we were in Edinburgh for the Christmas Markets in December. We'd been trying to find a pub in the city centre where we could get a seat and our 2 year daughter would be allowed in without us having to buy meal. A hard task as it turns out! We came across Ecco... More

Went to Ecco Vino on Saturday night with my friend for a glass of wine and ended up having dinner there. Have never been made to feel so welcome! Very friendly chap made sure we had everything we needed ... nothing seemed too much trouble! Thought the food was excellent and the wine list was good. Would definitely return...

came here for dinner a trois early one Tuesday in October .we were all pretty disappointed at the exceptionally low value for money food presented . One of my companions complained and 2 of the offerings were deducted from the bill - they were edible but certainly not worth the £10 or so charge.

I know this is a small place but really, to be told in such a rude and abrupt way is really unacceptable - I'm sure that your wine and good are most excellent, however your customer service needs some work.

Small but cosy place with an impressive selection of wines, but a very limited menu. My boyfriend and I both tried mains from their Specials board - he had risotto and I had farfalle... Both were very tasty, just a tad bit under done on the risotto's part. The farfalle was super tasty and creamy! Service was just ok. Some... More

Limited menu. Never had bruschetta with cold tomato before! Main courses ok but nothing special. After main course was cleared away were left without being asked if we wanted dessert or coffee even though waitress was not remotely busy. After 15 mins we went up to the bar to ask for the bill.
