My husband and I ate here on a Tuesday evening. We both had risotto which was excellent and I would highly recommend.
We have been here on previous visits to Edinburgh and have never had a bad meal.
The service is always attentive and we will eat here again

Thank you for choosing to eat with us when you are in town. I will pass the kind words on to our team in the kitchen and on the floor. They are appreciative of our customers and their kind words.

We look forward to welcoming you back. Next time you are in town think about visiting La Favorita down the street, newly refurbished and wood fired pizzas.

Thank you,
Tony Crolla

I can't say much more than these are the best pizzas I've ever had in the UK. As an Italian who has lived in Naples I feel that's a pretty good recommendation. Beyond that however La Fav also offers great pasta and starters for the money and are wonderfully welcoming as a staff. This place is also brilliant with children and they eat for a ONE POUND making the place an all round winner.

The children's deal is a fantastic offer that we support all year around. The £1.00 goes to charity and as long as the child is accompanied by an adult they eat for a pound. We are a family business and children are the apple of our eye. Thank you for your review and please be sure you have a Vittoria card to save at all of the locations throughout the month.

Ciao,

Tony Crolla

Friday afternoon lunch. What an absolute delight. Shared antipasti and pâté starters, a meal in themselves. We both had pizza with onion and chillies. Probably in my top 3 thinnest and crispest bases (drool) We never needed the sweets but had to try them, yet again superb and didn't skimp.
Maybe they took a little while to serve, so what! We had plenty of time.
Total enjoyment. Well worth a try.

I visited this here over the Easter weekend when the restaurant was very busy. We did not have a reservation yet was offered a table within a few minutes of entering. The atmosphere was nice and the service was excellent.
The food was fabulous!!! I could not fault anything about it. I thought it was excellent value as well. We had two starters, two mains (1 pizza, one chicken dish), two ice cream deserts and 4 halfs of cider for £54.
I would definately recommend this resuatrant and especially the ice cream!

The chefs will be pleased to hear you loved the food. Thank you for your review and your custom.
