Lovely Italian restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh. Great food,pizza was to die for. Service was very attentive and the atmosphere was great as it was a very busy Friday night! Would definitely go back!!!
Absolutely delicious food--main courses, appetizers, desserts and all. Cozy little restaurant, though with a surprising number of tables and relatively high capacity for the area. Would absolutely go back again.
Excellent flood, nice atmosphere and friendly staff , well worth taking a trip into the town and seeing and experiencing for yourself, would definitely recommend
A traditional cosy Italian offering a good range of traditional Italian favourites!! Hearty portions and friendly service along with a fair price for central City location make it a favourite choice. If any criticism at all, quite steep drinks prices. At £8 per glass of wine, order a bottle!! Better value and you get to spend longer in his cosy Grassmarket haunt.
Prime location. Not a huge menu but very varied with something to suit all tastes. Delicious food and generous portions. All at a very reasonable price. Service is excellent with friendly, welcoming staff. Always a pleasure to eat here. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely Italian on the Grassmarket. Really friendly staff and reasonable prices. Our mains took a while to come, but the staff were more worried about it than we were and brought us a free round of drinks (just as our mains arrived so result!)
Food was great. Staff were friendly. Sadly the whole evening was ruined by a large party of very drunk girls a few tables over. The staff could not deal with them and the foul language and shouting was disturbing to our party and I am sure other diners.
Nice restaurant with good food and staff. We had a lovely dinner and service on a busy Saturday evening. Value for money (3p, shared starters, entrée and dessert 115 pound)
The restaurant is great. Good italian food, kind and funny service but professional. Nice ambience. The waitress is a stunning italian beauty from Sardines. I will visit more and more
Good service, nice atmosphere, reasonably cheap & most importantly delicious food. Would definitely go back & recommend to others. Quite central too - 10 minute walk to the station.
