Description: We served the finest, freshest local seafood along side some of the best wines the planet has to offer. As well as food & wine, the restaurant is famous for its ambience, atmosphere and warm welcome and our love of food is only matched by our love of music. Blues, jazz folk, wherever the mood take us. Trains have been missed & plans have been changed as people who come in for a quick glass of wine often end up spending the rest of the night with us. Forget where your going at Ecco Vino. Ching-Ching!

Lovely cosy feeling here
We had anti pasti and a main each.
Service was attentive and not too over bearing.
I wasn't drinking that night but a wide selection of wines were available.
Lovely warm fire in the corner.
Would visit again.

on the last night of a girly weekend to edinburgh myself and a friend found ecco vino through an app on our phone(lucky us, thats for sure)
ecco vino soon become the best find of our whole trip. small, quiet but packed with charm and the most friendly and generous manager.
only going in for a quick glass of wine we soon found ourself ordering from the over appealing menu which then lead onto pudding and of course more wine.
wine was superb and food was even better, surpassed our expectations by a mile(which are usually high as we are both in the hospitality industry). Chris, the manager was extremely chatty which we loved, with home stories and wine recommendations. Chris gave us many samples to try, we were overwhelmed by his kindness. I cannot say enough good things about Chris and ecco vino, its a must go. I will be passing on this praise to anyone that will listen.

Charming restaurant in old Edinburgh town. Essentially a wine bar with it seems a good range of vino for the connoisseur. We're not so discerning and happily settled for the house Merlot which was smooth and quality. A popular place at peak times and don't take bookings on Saturdays. No hardship waiting at the bar is this classy little place, distressed furniture and all.

Friendly staff and the chatter of conversation gives Ecco Vino a contemporary feel in a classic setting.

The menu typifies this classy, uncomplicated place with fairly simple, tasteful Italian dishes. Not a pizza in sight! Enjoy.

Nice well positioned place in the city centre. Friendly staff and pretty good wine. I would have preferred a better selection of pinot noir and chardonnay; especially from Australia and New Zealand.

we come to Edinburgh for a girls weekend once or twice a year from Dublin and as soon as we drop our bags off we head for ecco vino. It is a laid back and charming little gem on one of the nicest streets in Edinburgh. The food is freshly made in front of you and washed down with a great selection of wine. Great ambiance and lovely staff to top it all off. I'd highly recommend.
