Our daughter purchased a Groupon voucher for a two course lunch and coffee for two as a present for us. The restaurant is not one that you would stumble across as it is up the hill well off the main street. We were greeted and shown to our table on arrival and given the lunch menu. There is a choice...

Visited with husband, 9yr old daughter and father in law. Everyone really enjoyed their food in fact my starter, bruschetta, was huge I was not expecting such a generous serving. Service was excellent until we asked for our bill. Three times we asked and after 25 minutes it arrived that's our only complaint....

This restaurant is exceptional. One of the best authentic Italian restaurants in Scotland. Better by far than any in Edinburgh. Fantastic pasta. Delicious bruschetta. The best Tira Misu I've ever had. Highly recommended. And great value for money.

Outstanding, the food, service and atmosphere was wonderful, we were a party of 16 on a busy night in the restaurant everyone was served extremely efficiently and the staff were warm and fun. A wonderful night and in my opinion the best Italian restaurant around. Thank you.

Actually shocked. Had an unpleasant visit due to the customer service (or lack of) - so I decided to e-mail the owner in order to sort this out and give constructive criticism so hopefully no one else would be deterred because of this. Got the most immature, unfriendly reply back. Genuinely shocked and disgusted at this manner of replying to... More

Only downside was the temperature of the carvery food, which was... More
