We had a party of 20 and couldn't have been happier. Our waiters were excellent and all 20 meals came out at the same time and were piping hot. Hat's off to la piazza!!!

Food was delicious and fairly priced (balsamic/olive oil dip and bread starter, two mains, glass of rosè and a pint of beer for £33), service was friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. We actually considered going two nights in a row 😂

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
