“Excellent Italian”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Although I've been 3 or 4 times for evenings out, I tend to use this restaurant before the rugby internationals. It's always buzzing and on Saturday 9th for the Wales game, it was no exception. Although extremely busy the food and service were top class. If you like Italian food, I don't think you can find much better in Edinburgh.
It was the first time my companion had been there and he absolutely loved it. I highly recommend it and will be visiting again soon.

“Excellent Italian food”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Don't be put off by the restricted pavement access to the restaurant because of the ongoing tram fiasco in Edinburgh. Try their calzone; excellent and the size of a deer's head with antlers!

“New place to eat at the west end of Edinburgh”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

First time visit on friday 8th march 2013. So welcoming and friendly. Good food and drink. Highly recommended, good decor, and views. If you can see you way round the tram works this is an oasis in the middle of it all. Well worth walking down to this pleace.

“My New Place to eat”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is the fourth time I have been to this resturant and again not disapointed. Needed to have a gluten free option and it was excellent. They even gave us a packet of GF Pasta to take home.
A glass of Proseco on the house. I would really recommend this place, food and service are both fantastic.

“Really Relaxed Atmosphere with Good Food”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Ate here when staying in Edinburgh for the six nations rugby. It was Saturday night and it was packed but did not feel so. Lovely atmosphere and really good food served by friendly Scicilian waiters. I would highly recommend it for a good night out. Only negative is the road works outside but I am sure they will finish the tram one day.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback from your stay.

We are delighted that you have enjoyed your evening with us. At La Piazza, that Saturday is still vivid in our minds such a fantastic busy day. We are truly happy to hear that despite the crowd we have been able to maintain a lovely and relaxed atmosphere, and more important that once again we have been consistent in delivering quality food and friendly service.

Many thanks for your recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you soon again.

Kind Regards,
