Giuliano's is my favourite restaurant. It's not just a meal out, it's a fun experience too. Giuliano, Angelo and their staff always deliver. It's a bit like having a meal in your own home without the hassle, and with happy people round about you who take a real joy in serving and entertaining you.The food gets better with every visit...

Greeted by friendly waiter in a nice environment on a Wednesday afternoon. We ordered, from an extensive menu, some garlic bread and bruschetta, garlic bread was okay, bruschetta was tasteless, bread was cold and soggy. I had salmon on a bed of leeks and onion, couldn't actually identify the leeks and onion in the yellow sauce, served with some baby... More

We found this restaurant as a consequence of being let down by another italian restaurant nearby who failed to record our booking. Despite not having booked , and despite it being a busy Saturday night , Giulianos's were happy to accomodate us. The menu choices are excellent , and the prices fair , but what struck us most about this... More

Had a quick 2 course pre WICKED theatre experience at The Playhouse. Bruchette and salmon pasta dish excellent. Wine was poor.Total Less than £23 per person not bad for City prices. Service always quick and very pleasant staff.

A group of 18 of us visited on Saturday. We ordered in advance as we only had the table for 2 hours which is to be expected given the time of year. The food was served quickly by very friendly staff. The food was lovely and everyone really enjoyed their meals. I would definitely visit again.

I visited here with my daughter after hearing so much about it. We were put in the conservatory and it was really cold. The meal was mediocre - very disappointed. We went in 2013.

Been here a few times and decided to come back for my son's 17th birthday. Great atmosphere as always, service a bit slow on mains but put that down to the T-bone. Food is always great as it was this time and manager/owner takes an interest in the detail. Worth a visit if you like friendly atmosphere and good food.

Being in close proximity to the Edinburgh playhouse I was expecting high prices and low quality, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The decor could probably do with updating a bit, but the food portions were plentiful, good quick service and the food was good quality - I had a Chateaubriand for one which I have never seen on a menu...
