We had a lovely meal here in December. The food was beautiful and the staff were attentive and friendly. Only downside is the noise. The restaurant was full and we could hardly hear each other talk. No-ones fault but I've never experienced it before.

We visited La Piazza in Jan 18 and have to say that we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is lovely and the staff very welcoming and friendly. Excellent service and the food was fantastic - now a firm favourite when visiting Edinburgh.

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
