Had not visited for a while and delighted that the atmosphere, staff and food were first class as before So many places to choose from in Edinburgh but not as consistent as Gali's so yes we will return when next through for the rugby Thanks again

The food was lovely, the service a little slow. The place does look a little dated, but nice and clean. We went there on a Saturday early evening 5.30 expecting the pre- theatre menu. This wasn't even offered to us, so this was a little bit annoying. So if you want a "just something to eat" place it's fine, but if you want to go out for a nice Italian meal in a really nice restaurant in Edinburgh, there is plenty more better places to choose from. A meal for the two of us 2 courses and a drink cost £45 not a rip off by any standards.

We were an adult family group in after an international rugby match in February, as were most if the other customers. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff friendly. The menu options were standard Italian Italian restaurant fare - which was all we needed - basic, hot and filling. The starters were fine and food arrived promptly. Sadly the main course food was either mediocre (carbonara with lots of cream and little ham) or uncooked (as in substantially raw in the middle) salmon. The door of the restaurant would not close properly (jammed in some way) and a cold draught blew through - making it uncomfortable. I am sure these problems could all be improved with some oversight by the restaurant- but we will use one of the many alternatives for our next dining at Haymarket.

This was a last minute booking as we had spent the day at the festival and needed something tasty late in the day. I had a pizza which hit the spot tasty ingredients and good choice of toppings. While this was a short visit the food going to other dinners looked great so will plan for more timely meal in the near future
