Let's start at the beginning. In January we decided to treat ourselves to a lovely night out . So my wife and young son met me from work and we headed off to Bella Italia where I had booked us a table. On arrival we were pleasantly greeted and shown to our table. I ordered lasagne and my wife and... More

Lovely decor and ambiance. Appreciate they were horrendously busy due to six nations rugby, however meal was incredibly SLOW to arrive!!! Table of 4, meals came at different times. Spent 80% of time in restaurant hungry waiting for food. When food arrived was lovely just too slow. Waitors were great considering.

My wife and I popped into this restaurant whilst on a day visit to Edinburgh. We were warmly welcomed and seated quickly. The staff were very professional and were attentive. It was a relief to sit down in a very relaxing atmosphere after a day's sightseeing in the city. We ordered pasta and it arrived in a very acceptable time.... More

Came here for breakfast last Friday morning using the tesco club card vouchers. The breakfast was lovely - both had a full breakfast with ciabatta bread which was delicious. Coffee was lovely. The waitress was very friendly and chatty and made us feel welcome. No problems using the club card vouchers, exchanged them straight away. Brilliant service.

We had dinner for 4 that was very good. Starting with bruschetta, then pasta dishes to lasagna. Everything was cooked perfectly and the side salads were complementary to the dishes served. The wait staff was terrific. We even went back a second time during our stay up the block at Old Town Chambers. A 5 star rating for sure.

came here for our anniversary, the food was very nice and the service was excellent. The decor was a bit dated and in need of a makeover. Overall a very nice night will be back

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
