Ate here last night with my partner. The decor and food was lovely however I found the maitre'd to be rather pushy, insisting on reading the specials menu to us and constantly topping up our glasses of wine everytime we took a sip.

I would return however as food and quality was really good

Visited with nephews, 13 and 6. The 13 year old is learning Italian at school and tried it out. Nico was very impressed. We think we got better than usual service because of this but even abroad, I find that if you try to speak a bit of the language, it is much appreciated. My tuna steak was overdone but everything else was delicious. Very hectic and noisy on a Saturday evening, not the place to go for a romantic meal for 2!!! The lady who has run it for years has retired but her sister, Veronica I think, was an excellent hostess. They do excellent value Sunday dinner at £8.95 for 3 courses.

Lovely atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Decidedly average food. I can quite understand the charm of this well established Edinburgh restaurant - it's lovely but the food isn't that great. It's ok.
