We engaged Giulano and his staff to provide wedding catering at our daughters wedding at the beautiful Oxenfoord Castle near Edinburgh - and boy, we and the 80 guests were not disappointed. May I list the factual successes for anyone considering a similar event? *Prompt and reliable preparation of the rooms *Thoughtfully laid tables *Superb staff in great uniforms who... More

Three friends and myself had a meal here before going on to a late-night Festival event. We were warmly welcomed. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant. Menu offered plenty choices - we all chose something different and they were all excellent. We stayed fairly late drinking wine and coffee - we were not 'rushed' away. Will definitely visit... More

This place is huge inside, it looks cosy from the outside so this was disappointing. The decor is very old fashioned. I ordered pizza, rocket salad and a glass of house red. Everything came quickly. The wine was good. The pizza (house speciality) wasn't great; too much oily cheese, tasteless sausage and a heavy base. The rocket salad was passable.... More

Looking for Italian with a smile and very good taste ---- this is a very good place. We were welcomed with typical Italian hospitality, ordered wine, and then enjoyed an excellent meal. We went back the next day!

It is some time since we ate in this restaurant but I have to say it won't be as long till next time. The whole visit was excellent - food superb and staff friendly. Although the place was extremely busy we were never rushed which is always a plus for me when eating out

The food at Giuliano's is really tasty. It's location makes it the perfect place to have dinner before going to see a show at the Playhouse. It's a bit expensive but I can guess they can charge those prices for it because of the location. It gets quite noisy though.

Had a good meal and staff were really good and fun. Big disappointment was getting the bill and finding out they charged £7.50 for a bottle of Moretti beer. Had just been over in omni centre before meal, and was getting same beer, same size for under £3!! Shame because would go back if it wasn't for feeling ripped off.

Giuliano's is a family run Italian restaurant in central Edinburgh. Although we hadn't booked we were given a table straight away (the venue is larger than it first appears from the outside). Despite the fact that on the day we went the restaurant was quite busy levels of service were very good and we all enjoyed our meals. The menu... More
