This restaurant really gives you the authentic Italian feel, including the decor inside which could have you thinking you were sat by an Italian lakeside eating al fresco. The food was delicious. My party has a mixture of pizza and pasta all of which looked lovely was served promptly. I has the seafood linguine and it was really wonderful. The... More

Had a lovely dinner here, bruschetta is quite large so we shared one. I had spaghetti bolognese & my Fiance had Palma ham pizza, both were delicious and we were stuffed when we left! Definitely recommend.

We had the pleasure of visiting this wonderful family run Italian restaurant on our Trip to Edinburgh on 28th March 2017. Having also visited Italy, the food was just as authentic, rich in flavour with Italian hospitality at its best! The restaurant ambiance and food was faultless, so good that we visited for lunch the next day too before our... More

This restaurant was not too far from our guesthouse and we had passed it a few times whilst walking into Edinburgh city centre. I had read the reviews and they read very well so decided to go for meal . We weren't disappointed both starters homemade pate and the deep fried mozzarella were very tasty. As were the main courses.... More

Reasonable Italian restaurant although both the service and the food can be variable. The waiting staff are a little world weary and the pizza I had last time we ate there (Mediterranea) had the tiniest piece of Gorgonzola on it. The fettuccine bottarga was very good though. It is a reliable place to walk in for a table after a... More

We went here for dinner one evening and it took us ages to pick what to eat-there were so many options that all sounded amazing. The food was prepared quickly and was lovely. The dessert menu was huge too and again, we were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and attentive to anything we wanted.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
