Our guide on the Bike Tour we had just completed recommended this place for dinner, he even went so far as to call the restaurant for us to make a reservation. Great food and atmosphere!

Stopped in here for lunch on a cold autumn day. Restaurant is nicely decked out, though noise rattles around the room a little. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food itself was just okay - the lunchtime special deal looks like good value, but...More

Tempo Perso INDIPENDENT ITALIAN EATERY In April 2014, the people of Edinburgh were invited to taste and embrace a true Italian dining experience. A concept first born in Italy in 2003, Osteria del Tempo Perso was created, with love, by the Iacobelli family in Casalvieri, 15 years ago. As well as importing artisan ingredients from their home farm in Italy, the family have further enhanced their menu with the finest produce from Scotland’s larder. It’s this perfect mix of Italy and Scotland that makes Tempo Perso, Edinburgh. Tempo Perso is an independent Italian eatery and wine bar owned by the Iacobelli family. Marco Iacobelli now calls Edinburgh home. He is deeply invested in sharing and promoting the true essence of Italian food and hospitality. Marco is passionate about celebrating the fresh food and fine wine he grew up enjoying in Italy. Remaining true to his roots means keeping it simple but eternally pleasing. As such, the ethos of Tempo Perso was born. Simple is Beautiful.
