The welcome on arrival was very positive with smiling faces. We then had a very helpful waiter to assist us in our food and wine choices. The menu and wine list were very well put together, but it is certainly not a place to go...More

Atmosphere: quite good Meal: terribly small portions with embarrassingly high prices for what one actually gets. Unfortunately, you will need a snack at home after this meal. Large plates with small portions in their centre, this is more nouvelle cuisine than a decent Italian joint....More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its

visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

Description
Edinburgh's finest Italian Restaurant Wine Bar, Divino Enoteca is a hidden gem in the heart of Edinburgh's old town yet only minutes from the bustle of the city. The archetypal wine cellar married with Italian 'chic', Divino is charming and elegant, with soft lighting and exposed stone walls perfectly complemented by the comfy leather chairs, banquettes and booths, rich oak floors and an electic mix of pictures, lanterns and object d'art creating a warm and welcoming ambience.
