The food and service was excellent and our party (with two small children) was made to feel welcome and the exuberance of the children was facilitated by an exceptional staff who made our visit a treat.

This place never let's you down. The set dinner menu midweek offers choice and homemade italian comfort food. The fact that the owners family are in the restaurant talking to customers is fantastic. The mussels were first class as are their wide array of pastas and pizza. The food comes out having obviously been cooked fresh; it's lovely. The value... More

Happened upon restaurant at 9:00 when most places have stopped serving in dalkeith and found a surprisingly sophisticated restaurant with reasonable prices and very good service. I say surprisingly good because I associate good Italian with Little Italy NYC. Remember, I am not a huge world traveler and I wasn't expecting dalkeith to have such a gem.

From the authentic Italian decor to fantastic food (pizza, pasta, mussels, calamari) and wine, perfect end to a day for our family on a road trip. Great service and value.

We had lunch here today from the set menu. Could not fault the restaurant, the service, the quality or the prices. Excellent all round. This is our new local!
