We were on our feet all day when we're came across this place, and it smelled fanatic.

Our waitress did a great job recommending the dishes: arancini (balls of risotto with mozzarella and fresh pear inside) for a starter, with ravioli with porcini mushrooms for my spouse and fettuccini with bolognese sauce for me.

The waitress also suggested very good wine pairings.

As an American, we also appreciated that the portions were reasonable, not the large sizes we're used to at home.

Overall, this was a nice, satisfying dinner at a reasonable price.

This evening we visited this restaurant for a 30th Birthday meal and can honestly say it’s one of the best places I’ve ever visited. The staff are what makes this place so amazing. They go above and beyond on every level and make every table in the restaurant feel special.
The food was also delicious, so tasty and fresh! Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh and would definitely return!
Thank you for a memorable evening :-)

We booked this restaurant due to the good reviews on trip advisor. This is quite a small restaurant and a bit cramp. The service was good as was the food.

Been trying to book this restaurant for ages , finally got a table for 2 and realised why I failed previously trying to book a table for 6+. Its not the biggest restaurant but it is very good. Warm friendly atmosphere , attentive staff , good grub especially fish. Thoroughly recommend it but perhaps not for big family meals of 8+. Romantic though like the Italian restaurant in "Lady and the Tramp".

Great find for our last meal in Edinburgh. Delicious seafood platter shared by my husband and me with more of an Italian flair. The service was great and the staff entertaining. Definitely a must on our next trip back.
