have been spending the last 10 days in edimburgh and have found this cozy restaurant in which once you try something,from breakfast to dinner without skeeping lunch of course,you can't avoid to come back and start all over again.
the quality of the products along with their generosity leaves you satisfied in every way.
and to be also mentioned the stuff all together, with their touch of italy and the sound of their language floating in the air,as an authentic hilarious moment.
the owner himself was all the time welcoming,even my boyfriend was called in to play piano( the place holds one).
thank u guys for everithing, I may think to come back once!!!!!!!!!!!!! simona

Have been a regular for several years now and still do not tire of the fabulous food. Pizzas are superb, with a lovely thin base and top quality ingredients. Coffee is also to my taste - strong and full-bodied. Home baked focaccia with a wide variety of fillings are also delicious. Owner Bruno brings a little bit of Italy to Marchmont and also makes a mean tiramisu.

I really love visiting this 'little part of Italy'. Artista is unpretentious, child friendly with hospitable staff. The menu is authentic, and always freshly prepared. Try their pizza, you won't be disappointed.

I have been to this cafe many times for breakfast and lunch and always enjoy the setting and the food.

It is an italian cafe which serves a range of breakfasts, pizza and pasta and a great place to go any time of the day.

The Scottish breakfasts are huge and good quality bacon and sausages.

Their pizza and pasta dishes are always excellent. They have a wide selection of dishes and the service is always friendly and punctual.

The have a small seating area out the front and it is a lovely spot on a sunny day.

Well worth a visit.

proper unpretentious italian food with no fuss and the best pizza in scotland , try the focaccina al prosciutto crudo olio e pomodoro ( home backed focaccia with raw ham evo oil and tomato ) . also the stuffed squid and caponata di melanzane ( sicilian aubergine dish ) . this guys put passion in their food and you can taste it . very friendly informal service and as a bonus wait for owner bruno to get inspired and start playing the piano . highly reccomended . forza italia !
