Really enjoyed our meal here. Good selection of food and the prices are very reasonable. Bit of a wait in between courses due to some confusion or other but did not detract from our enjoyable evening. This place seems to fill up quickly so probably best to book.

Do not recommend this Cafe at all. We had an awful experience and unpleasant time here. Shame really when it's supposed to be so good.

a friend of us suggested us this small, cute and very familiar restaurant in Leith. We were sceptic, however we decided to enter and try this place as lt was lunch time.
we ordered just one portion of mussels as starter and it was not only big , but also delicious. so at first we got happily surprised
as main we ordered three different plates: Pasta haggis (delicious); ravioli (super yummy) and strozzapretti( good good-even I don't eat anchovies).we ordered lunch portions and those were quite big, otherwise you could choose a bigger portion for just 2GBP more ( I believe that portion would be giant) . At the end they offered us shots of limoncello .
the people working there is so so nice and welcome, and the service was so good. The girl was always smiling making us feel very well.
the quality of the food as great and the prices not high at all.
We had an amazing surprise though discovering this small nice place

This is a popular little bistro in the Leith area of Edinburgh and was recommended to us by several locals which is always a good sign.

Edinburgh has more than it’s fair share of what I’d call ‘itsy bitsy’ type restaurants, all charging exorbitant prices for minuscule portions. It’s nice to find a traditional place that serves tasty food without being pretentious

The two girls serving were pleasant and chatty. We were at the front so had a nice time speaking back and fore to them. Portion sizes are generous and we found everything very tasty.

Would recommend Domenico for a good value, traditional Italian meal served in casual but pleasant surroundings.
