Beautiful restaurant, great service and wonderful food. We ate here on a busy Friday evening The place was packed and there was a great atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent, a great menu that was very well priced. Would highly recommend this restaurant and would book it again if I ever return to Edinburgh.

My boyfriend took me here on our last night in Edinburgh for my 30th birthday. We were taken to at table upstairs and had excellent table service by our waiter. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. We had the dough balls to start, followed by carbonara (me) and pizza (boyfriend). Nothing was too much trouble. My boyfriend asked for... More

Had a meal with friends on a busy Saturday night, staff were lovely and so attentive considering how busy the restaurant was. Lovely atmosphere and great food served promptly. Will definitely return when I come back to Edinburgh!

Delightful food, delightfully served, delightful location, delightful surroundings - simple! I eat here socially, for business lunches and for special occasions and it always delivers. Great value for money and charming staff. I would (and do) recommend it for anyone looking for simple Italian food at a good price.

Decided to go here after a shopping trip in Edinburgh with a friend, and so glad we did. Food was lovely, atmosphere good, staff very friendly and attentive. Plenty choice on menu and what was good there were smaller portions available for mains which suited us as we had a starter to share, then a sweet which I must say... More

What a brilliant meal this evening from the special menu. The goats cheese tart was a delicious start to the meal along with a lovely crisp glass of Prosecco. The duck's breast was a super main course then followed by the Italian mess. Yummy. Washed down with a bottle of Malbec. Great start to a chill out few days in... More

This restaurant has a good varied menu and a great atmosphere inside. I have been a few times. I have to say that this time, I wasn't quite as wowed by the food as usual. i'm not sure why, it just seemed like something was a bit missing from it. My pasta wasn't particularly flavoursome. However, I would definitely go... More
