Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an incredible wee gem! We asked for a table very last minute on a Friday night and they were delighted to welcome us in. Such a beautiful venue! Run by husband and wife - it was fantastic to support an independent family restaurant. The...wine list is class! They helped recommend a wine we have never had and wouldn’t have opted for - divine!! Let’s start with the homemade foccacia - so fresh, crusty, salty. This was served with a whipped pesto & almond butter. The best bread I’ve ever had. So good I asked to buy some to take home. They kindly gave us some complimentary. 💓 We shared starters - tuna tartare (so fresh) and beautifully presented. Veal meatballs - exploding with flavour and my favourite dish was the vegetarian ravioli with an incredible cheese foam sauce - WOW! Mains we had Scottish Wild Boar tagliatelle and Scottish seared grouse. The provenance around this menu should be celebrated - the best Italian dinner I’ve ever had using some of the best Scottish ingredients. Thank you for having us. I cannot wait to return!More

I so wanted to give this place 5 stars but we were a little disappointed with the food, especially having seen such great reviews. The place is delightful and the service totally charming. We were there on a Saturday night so it was very noisy,...as so many places are, having no soft furnishings. My husband is a tad deaf so this can be a problem for us. We had the a la carte option and I chose the breaded mushroom for the main course, meant to taste like chicken which it really did! Rather bland, overcooked chicken really. But lots of lovely bits and as I said, great ambiance so we'll definitely give it another go.More

We went here for dinner, opting for the seven course tasting menu with my husband also partaking in the matched wines. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious and it was refreshing for a tasting menu to have options to choose from as a pescatarian. Reports...(from the other side of the table) were that each of the wines were interesting and perfectly matched. The setting is intimate and made for a lovely romantic evening, particularly when pared with the great service we received which was caring and knowledgable yet unpretentious. Living in the area, we had waited far too long to try RadiCibus - don't make the same mistake we did!More

Giovanni and Mara deliver again and again! This hidden gem is my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. Why? I am not an easy customer as I strive for honest, organic (or clean non GMO/sprayed) pure, quality ingredients, right down to the pantry goods. I am particular...about healthy and the more commonly used unhealthy oils. I avoid refined carbohydrates and eat for vitality and good health. Giovanni and Mara seem to share my mindful sourcing of the best of ingredients. Consequently, their beautiful dishes are crafted with the best and purest ingredients. Every dish is plated with mindfulness: beauty, texture, mouthfeel, surprise and sheer delight in the eating. Giovanni always has delicious wine and olive oil to share. I love natural, pure red wine and love all that he shares. He has a great knowledge of his vinyards and a real passion for food and wine. It shows in all that he and Mara present. How lucky are we to have such a special, intimate gem in Edinburgh. Thank you Giovanni and MaraMore

Can’t stress enough what a special experience this delightful little restaurant is. Just a handful of tables and a taster menu that would be unrivalled in any Michelin star restaurant. Personal service but never overwhelming. The wine pairing is a must as the charming Italian...sommelier really knows his stuff - but do a so in such a relaxed way as to make it feel like a real adventure. I’d never tried any of the wines before (each a perfect pairing with the very imaginative little meals) and every one was a delightful revelation. The tiny restaurant is both classy - lovely crockery too! - and romantic. You could easily be on some Venetian back-street. Our excellent meal was entirely vegetarian but ‘normal’ diets are well catered for too! Book to avoid disappointment - and then expect a terrific and friendly and truly Italian experience.More

Tiny and intimate basement restaurant in Stockbridge with a warm welcome and genuine authentic Italian food which is an order of magnitude above even good Italian eateries. The young couple who own and run it (husband front-of-house, wife cooking) do a fantastic flavour-packed 5- or...7-course tasting menu, with the a la carte option on Thursday and Sunday. We shared a charcuterie platter to start (all sourced from a mountain village in the Marche, with crusty focaccia and peppery olive oil; followed by sweet (and v tender) octopus for my wife and and perfectly cooked, savoury wild mallard breast with pistachios and cavolo nero for me. Brilliantly done, deep deep flavours. As a pudding the goat cheese Seada with figs and honey was absolutely superb: a crispy deep-fried “raviolo” filled with salty goat cheese and balanced by the honey. To kill for. Not joking. Good selection of less-known Italian wines, including several from the Marche region. Not ridiculously expensive, cosy and great vfm. Lovely folk too; food made with love and hospitality.More

It was a great experience. I particularly loved that even with a testing menu, we choose the one with 7 courses, you still have the possibility to choose some of the dishes you prefer. Every dish was so well structured and full of thoughts and...research. The beetroot and gorgonzola second entree had a perfect color and velvety texture, I was so impressed with the final result. Special mention to the focaccia, real perfection with the bell peppers and almond pesto. I also recommend the pumpkin ravioli with amaretto, very gracefully executed, like a symphony. The wine paring was as well impressive: very knowledgeably organized, with some real pearls inside, like the perfect rose wine served in the perfect glass. I don’t even like rose! The whole ambient is also so relaxing and with great music, and the service is excellent: they even gave me some focaccia to bring home because I liked it so much! Very recommended. Just be ready that this is an experience and it might take a bit longer than a “regular” dinner out, just sit down and trust your waiter, they know the way around their food very well!More

We have the most wonderful birthday dinner here for my partner. We had the 7 courses tasting menu: The food was extraordinary, every course was very well presented with truly Italian ingredients and recipes balanced perfectly with Scottish products. We also went for the wine...paring and it was absolutely worth it. Giovanni, on top of being a great host, has a great knowledge of wines. Every wine (all Italians) we had was well thought for the dish it was coming with and Giovanni took the time to explain the flavour profile and the origin of them. The ambience inside the restaurant is really cosy and quiet. The entire experience was worth every penny and we will certainly be back! Highly highly recommended.More

I was dying to go back to this place and finally managed after 3 years and it did not disappoint. Giovanni and Mara are a dream team! They always make a fuss when I visit and make me and my friends always feel at home....Mara is a wizard of great food with an added bonus - doesn’t use coriander which I’m allergic to so, I eat there safely! And Giovanni knows so much about wine, he convinced me to have white wine which I never do! We had the 7 course option with wine pairing… it was to die for! I enjoyed all the food and wine but my favorite was a white sparkling Greek moscato served with one of the desserts (if I remember correctly). We enjoyed ourselves so much eating, drinking, laughing! ! A friend that was there for the first time, fell in love with the place! I honestly can’t compliment this place enough. Still my favorite restaurant.More

Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
