This is a surprisingly friendly place, good Italian food, deals often available.It is a nice place for an earthy meal out. Food was pretty average, and one of the pasta dishes had to be sent back because it was cold. To be fair the cost...More

This place used to be okay. However, today we purchased two portions of chips. When we arrived home and opened them up, we were confronted with two portions of greasy, mahogany coloured, brittle, reheated chips. Horrible! Hopefully they will read this review and up their...More

Food very overcooked to the point it was almost burnt, and tasted reheated and very greasy. Staff not very friendly at all. Won't return. Highly unrecommended!

This is a sort of everything take away. We had fish and chips on an ordinary Saturday night, not late. Fish tasted like it had been cooked day before and chips were poor. Very pricey as well. We ended up tossing most of it away....More

Just had an order delivered and it was honestly the worst food I have ever had. My friend got the Mexican wrap which was almost empty. There was also an very wet and soggy pasta situation. It was almost like the pasta was not drained....More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
