Whenever we are in Edinburgh we always enjoy a takeaway meal from Giuliano's fish and chip shop, situated across the road from the Playhouse Theatre. The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. It is a family run business, and the staff are always very friendly and helpful. Everything is normally always ready, and you are served very quickly and... More

We were there recently as a group for early as thing dinner. Have been before and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is very family orientated and you are greeted as such. The food is amazing and not expensive. The menu is varied for adults and children.

We walked in without a booking and were given a table without any trouble, although we were given a time that the table had to be available for, it was plenty of time for us to finish our meal! The food was great and the waiting staff were very friendly and prompt!

A wee evening in Edinburgh and looked for somewhere to eat. Booked Giuliano's and although the food was lovely it was very disappointing due to the waiters love for themselves! It is a big restaurant and quite busy but we felt we were overlooked on many occasions considering we were sitting at a table right at the bar. We had... More

Visited last Friday, we hadn't booked but the owner managed to find us a table. Really friendly food was fantastic, the owner was very friendly. We didn't have time for dessert but fancied it so we went back after the show and finished off our evening. Definitely recommend it.

I was there some months back as it was my friends birthday. The staff is very friendly - up until you'll remark on something, like the fact that one of my friends food arrive cold to the table. That was just the beginning, but I'm not here to complain rather to show my views on the service. The price, regarding... More

Weekend in Edingburgh for a show and a couple of meals out. Love Italian food and this was right next to our hotel so thought we'd give it a try. Lucky to get a seat so recommend booking as lots of folk after us were turned away. Food was excellent and service to.

Thank Markofltc

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
