The wait was unending and the pasta wasn't worth waiting for. Over priced, over rated and definitely not worth the visit. Nice setting though, overlooking the water.

First of the staff are pleasant but to be honest all look a bit grim. After we arrived we quickly ordered food and drinks but had to wait ages for even just the starter and water to come. The starter was delicious and we all...More

Pasta was overcooked (despite the request for 'al dente'), flavours were boring and bland, and the seafood was not fresh. Server brought our food and then ignored us. Zizzi - Edinburgh Quay gives Italian food a bad name.

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
