By far our favourite Italian (and trust me we’ve tried a lot!) and probably our favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. The staff are all so welcoming and friendly, the restaurant has a great homely but classy feel and the food is fantastic! We eat here quite...More

The deal here is 3 star pricing for 4 star food in what could pass for a 5 star location. Pastas were not among the very best we have had but at 10 euroish apiece no one complained. Stick to creamy pastas over red sauces.

Lovely atmosphere and well decorated. Food was amazing and catered for those who did not want the typical Italian dishes. Staff were very friendly and always checking on the table. A large service charge was applied to a large meal.

We booked our anniversary dinner here and we arrived on time but after arriving we were asked to wait 2 minutes(actually took 10) until the table was ready. What's the point of booking if you don't actually have a table ready at the booked time?...More

My partner and I enjoyed two pasta dishes at this restaurant: Ravioli all'Astice and Tortelloni al Tartufo. Both of them were excellent. The service and atmosphere was very good. We had a great evening. Additionally, the restaurant was close (5 min walk) to the hotel...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
