Located a few minutes beyond the VUE cinema in Leith Walk we've walked past this eatery a number of times on previous visits to Edinburgh.
It's always been very busy ... a great sign in my book ... and this time was no exception. However,...More
We were walking towards our hotel, looking for a restaurant to have dinner. The Taste of Italy restaurant looks more like a café than a conventional restaurant - it's furnished with very simple tables, chairs and the décor is very plain. But we were hungry...More

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
