We visited at end of August. Firstly, the COVID precautions were fantastic. The waiters were quick, attentive and friendly. The food was the best food I've had in an Italian restaurant for a long time. Very authentically Italian. We had bruschetta to start and the...Pasta Nduja for main. I never eat dessert but was tempted by one going past to other diners and I ordered the Crepe Nocciola -simply stunning. Finally, the best Aperol Spritz I've had outside Italy (I find most bars in UK cant get the mix right, but Bar Italia got it spot one). Well done to all the staff and highly recommended.More

Had or evening meal there on Saturday the 6th September, and wasn't disappointed. Excellent service and beautiful food. waiters were very helpful (my partner and I can't speak Italian and they explained and pronounced things on the menu for us lol). The portion size was...good too, filling but not heavy. Left room for desert and that was excellent. Can't wait to go back on our next visit to Edinburgh, worth it just for the cheese board felt very safe with the measures taken for social distancingMore

This restaurant is located on a main thoroughfare and had been booked by our friends without them knowing we had dined there some years ago and were not impressed with various issues then. The small step up and the door opening towards you, combined with...the cramped dining space, would I believe, make it very difficult for a wheelchair user. The staff were very friendly and helpful in meal options, taking our orders, serving it and then clearing away. What was totally unacceptable, was being presented with the bill (without it being requested) as we were still talking after having having consumed a three course meal and various other tables being empty, as diners had left. The ambient noise in dining area was at such a level as to make conversation difficult. The various foods and courses were average and none of us considered that they merited comment except to say that the portions were smallish. That said, the staff were interactive, efficient and helpful at every request, despite being quite busy.More

I saw an angel...in the kitchen. the best that I could leave the house to be able to find a beautiful girl in a blonde kitchen like an angel. I'm in love . I will come back to Bar Italia only and expressly for herMore

Found this restaurant by chance. Luckily for us. The service and food was excellent. The minestrone soup was just perfect fresh vegetables perfectly presented. We had pasta with sea food for the main course and again all fresh . The pasta was al dente and...the mix of seafood wonderful. An interesting wine list not overpriced made the meal as did the great selection of Grappa . Good food Good service and Great wine . In Edinburgh again next month will be bookingMore

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
