“Will definitely return ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We visited yesterday and the Bolognese was die for and service from start to finish was brilliant! Food served in a good time and tasted amazing! Me and my boyfriend are planning on returning here for lunch before leaving Edinburgh tomorrow.

Would recommend to all.

“Breakfasts are not a strength”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Visited for breakfast this morning, not great. Burnt bacon (half of each of the two rashers inedible), they advertise that they are providing "Cumberland sausages" which they are most certainly not. First time I have had a Scotish cooked breakfst that has a bundle of watercress on it. Coffee really nice though. I did offer feedback (The waitress didnt think know that they were advertising Cumberlands until they re-checked the menu.) apologised and that was it. For a £10+ breakfast this was very poor.

“Fabulous Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Lucano is a great little place to go. The coffee and cakes are lovely and the meals are great. The food is very freshly prepared and extremely tasty. The staff are all very warm and welcoming and the place runs very efficiently.

I have been there many times and would go anytime I was in that part of town!

“Food is good, but staff is pretty rude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

They provide a wide array of breakfast items (croissant, danishes, scones etc) and the place is full every morning so I guess it's a favorite ... prolly why the staff is kind of rude and not very kind. Nothing god-awful but sufficiently not to make me come back. If the food was exceptional, I might have, but it's "just" good, so not worth fighting rude staff for.

“Coffee and cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Just popped into this lovely place for a quick coffee and cake. Both were lovely... I kind of wish we had been staying for a meal. Waiters were friendly and good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place.
