We had the pizza and the soup on a snowing afternoon. The food tasted really authentic and fresh. Love the ‘em all. Good deal too.

Went here on our first day in Edinburgh after arriving and needing some lunch, quick service, good portions sizes and friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice Italian restaurant!

I should have paid attention to the pizza slices in the window. The price was great, but it was basically a huge piece of foccacia covered in sauce, topped with a tiny bit of cheese and topping. What a disappointment. Meanwhile, a couple of guys...More

We called in on a Sunday morning for breakfast when the place was empty so no excuses for the poor quality nof breakfast. The food was lukewarm and the fried eggs overcooked. Will not be going there again

Just ate a Margherita pizza for lunch. The dough is ok. But couldn't eat the chewy cheese on top. So I strongly suggest to use a better quality mozzarella. The service was ok: friendly and professional. Good espresso coffee. Good selection of wines and beers.

Ate here with our two year old. Child’s portion was generous and he loved it- was very tasty. Muscle starter was excellent and the Sicilian salad and margarita pizza was excellent also. Desert was gorgeous (sweet calzone). Fair price (£50) for three with a couple...More

We ate here on a Monday night so it wasn't overly busy. The restaurant was casual and relaxed so you don't need to dress up. The staff were friendly and explained some of the dishes to us. Between the 3 of us we shared a...More

Ate here 3 times! Loved the people and the place! With not knowing when you enter a restaurant in a foreign country if your going to get enough to sustain you until your next meal (which happened to us twice) I was very impressed. The...More

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
