This restaurant does all the usual Italian food but it's worth looking at their specialities eg Stornaway Black Pudding Penne or Chicken au Poivre.Just a couple of pounds more than a pizza or pasta but delicious. The staff are very efficient and attentive without being intrusive.I'd happily eat here again.

Service: very unsmiley waiter initially, but in general service was efficient and friendly, and the food was very speedy in coming, which was great for us as we had a Celtic Connections gig to get to! Ambience: good, seemed surprisingly busy for a Tues night. Cost: had a 5pm deal so very good value - £14 for 3 courses and... More

dropped in with a couple of my friends late one night, had some troubles ordering as my friend got the wrong dish, probably a communication problem and they were in a hurry to close down. but they switched the dish anyway and we really liked the food

Good Italian food in a busy city centre restaurant. Food is good and service excellent. Only point to note it's so busy people and tables are crammed in everywhere! It's not fancy but ideal for a casual bite to eat especially after a day in town.

Booked ahead for a table for five friends on a Friday night. Had just sat down and ordered drinks when the fire alarm went off. After moving out to the street for a 10 min wait for the all clear we were ready to order. The Italian menu has many Scottish ingredients added to traditional Italian dishes including haggis and...

This was not our first choice, but as the other restaurant was full we decided to give this place a try. Our experience proved that it should have been our first choice all along - and will be from now on! The whole experience was an absolute pleasure, in terms of the quality of food, the service, and the excellent... More

We Visited on a Saturday after booking ahead to find we had no reservation. Fortunately they found us a table. The food was excellent but as soon as the starter had been cleared the main course was presented. Having no time to digest the generous starter meant it was difficult to finish the main course. Just a 5-10 minute break... More
