Met a colleague for lunch. We had a wonderful meal well presented, friendly service and great atmosphere/ The choice of wine was excellent and the Merlot we chose complimented the food. They made us feel like one of the family

I stopped in for a quiet afternoon bite to eat during a Saturday stroll around the Edinburgh city centre. I've visited this particular restaurant often in the past, but only when it was its original Gennaro self. It has changed hands in recent times, some...More

We were looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night and this was the only place in the area that was't packed. We quickly learned why. Our calamari appitizer was bland and clearly from frozen. The table next to us got their pasta...More

Nice friendly place. Both manager and owner welcomed us on our two visits. Pizza and lasagna were very good. Busy on weekends but we didn't wait. Food was hot and well prepared.

Great lunch, bruchetta, calimare, grilled salmon and chicken in creamy sauce with asparagus. Good wine selection, free water, no forced service charge, but good service aggro in all.

Better than Italian restaurants in the US, not quite as good as Italy, it is the tomatoes that make the difference. The staff was super friendly, we had actually been to the manager's hometown in Italy. Didn't do pizza so can't comment on that. 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
