About Cafe Domenico

A little piece of Rome or Florence tucked away over in Leith, Cafe Domenico serves up authentic cuisine, just how it is done back in Italy. With traditional red and white table cloths and rustic wooden decor, this quaint cafe and restaurant is full of charm, winning over the hearts of Edinburgh’s aficionados of Italian cuisine since it was established in 1988. Tuck into a classic pasta dish like the spaghetti with mussels, squid, chili and olive oil or some meat or seafood dish like the chicken breast stuffed with butternut squash and goats’ cheese, wrapped in cured ham and served with potatoes and wilted spinach. You’ll find Cafe Domenico located on Sandport Street – book a table and head on over!

Another return visit with friends - as always, treated like family. Great food, good wine, good company. Got to be one of the best Italian restaurants in Edinburgh.

We had a wonderful meal at this little hidden gem, a small but very authentic Italian restaurant tucked away in Leith. The host Mark and all of the staff were really attentive and could not do enough for us. We had a 3 course meal which was beautiful and be warned plentiful. They serve a wonderful pre-dinner drink prossecco mixed with lemon cello. We had a bottle of the house red which was lovely. The only criticism we had was that it was very warm in the restaurant however Mark assured us that he and his partner had only just took over it was on his 'Jobs to do list'. We did have a shock when we received the bill as it came to £50 which we thought was outstanding value for money! If you are in Leith we would definitely recommend the Cafe Domenico for a meal but our tip would be make sure you're hungry :-)

Delmonico's is, in my opinion, a better than average Italian resturant. I had told my niece that their risotto was very good I was a bit disappointed that it was not on the lunch menu. However, the waiter checked with the Chef and he was prepared to make us a risotto which was delicious. My husband had a haggis pasta? which he said was delicious and my nephew had pork Milanais whe was also well received. What with delicious starters and the final coffee our lunch was excellent.

The food and atmosphere is excellent at cafe domenico. The staff were very accomindating for my grandma who has a gluten allergy and she was able to taylor her meal for her needs. A lovely time was had by all and we left feeling very full due to the gemourous portions of tasty food.

At the risk of ruining this wonderful local Italian haven for Leithers, fabulous food with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are no second sittings here and no need to rush through your meal, a delightful all night venue for a relaxed, lively and continental evening.

We had the fixed price menu: starter, main course and dessert. The meatball starter was delicious, but main courses were disappointing. Service was erratic. Even though the restaurant was not busy, a drink we ordered was not brought until we reminded the waitress about 10 minutes later.

Love Cafe Delmonico. Family run. Always great service and food. Ran out of their excellent olives though last night. Had the delicious fish stew, which I could not finish as so plentiful.
