Always a great meal at Ciao Roma - excellent food, outstanding service and a wonderful atmosphere. I never miss a chance to visit while in Edinburgh!

Friendly helpful and efficient service, excellent food. A regular stop for pre- theatre food did not disappoint, veal milanese was excellent and seafood risotto very tasty!

1st class meals and 1st class service. I would certainly return to this establishment and recommend it to my friends as the place to eat when visiting Edinburgh.

This is an under-rated restaurant, particularly for those in need of a break from the lamb and salmon dishes so steadily available in many Edinburgh restaurants that favor traditional Scottish cuisine. It's also perfectly located for those who need to eat early in order to attend a performance at the nearby Festival Theatre. My wife and I enjoyed an excellent thin crust pizza, washed down with a delicious, Sangiovese-dominant Chianti Classico there recently. Two scoops of scrumptious gelato rounded out a perfect meal.

The waiting staff were charming and attentive, without being obtrusive. They were also knowledgeable about the menu. My friend and I both had the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce which was exceptionally good. The steaks were of the highest quality - tender and flavoursome - cooked to perfection and exactly to order. To my shame, Ciao Roma was not my first choice that evening for a pre theatre supper, but it will certainly be so in the future.

The place was lovely and full of Italian character. The menu was presented well. When I got my order of seafood pasta in ink though, it was supposed to have calamari, shrimps and mussels. I found to my disappointment that it only had 1 shrimp, around 4 to 6 very small slices of calamari and majority was mussels. And it was pretty salty too. The second item we order was a pizza. It was too salty for our taste as well. They did well on the dessert though. The ice cream was lovely.

A lively restaurant with lots of Italian atmosphere - they offer great food at a reasonable cost and also have a pre-theatre menu. The staff are excellent and very attentive. I have been several times and use this restaurant each time before a show at the Festival Theatre which is directly over the road.

We had to wait longer than usual for our meal but the restaurant was busier than I have ever seen it even at that time (6pm). That said the waiters were rushing about the place trying to ensure that everyone was served and when the food came it was delicious. And we still made the theatre on time.

Ciao Roma is an an excellent and dependable pre-theatre option. Really good food, excellent service, everyone enjoyed their meal. Would be nice to have a few more vegetarian options.
