This is a lovely little restaurant tucked away in Leith. The Butternut Squash ravioli was delicious and so was the ice cream dessert. I have been here before with a large group which was particularly impressive in view of the small size on the restaurant but they coped beautifully and the food was excellent. This is very local for me... More

Visited this wonderfully authentic Italian Restaurant on spec and what a find. The quality of the food and service were exceptional and Mark the host could not have been more helpful. Our one slight criticism was it was very warm in the restaurant but they are working on that. The Cafe Domenico is the real deal we had a 3... More

We lived nearby and never realised this place exisited. We now visit every month. The staff are very welcoming and the food is ridiculously great value for money. We've tried many Italians restaurants and none come close to this overall. We went on a Sunday recently for the first time and couldn't believe ideas only £15 for 3 courses. I... More

As always received a warm welcome for an early evening meal. I chose my main from the specials menu a delightful chicken and spicy sausage dish. My wife went for the pasta and wine deal which is fantastic value. Starters were also excellent. House red wine was smooth. A great meal.

Always nice to tuck ourselves away here and enjoy some Italian, non-chain, food. Service is good and the food very reasonable. Not the greatest Italian food in the world, but good for the price - worth a visit

I have been here twice in the last month now, both times excellent. I have recently moved to the area and popped in on a whim - so glad I did! The food is superb and the portions very generous. The staff are simply excellent - so attentive, very friendly and know their food. Can accommodate fussy tastes too which... More

I visited Cafe Domenico for dinner with 3 friends. It's a lovely little family run restaurant. It's advisable to book as it's quite small but that adds to it's charm. Stafg are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had scallops to start and then duck for my main. The food was excellent. Overall a lovely meal in a... More

We visited this restaurant as a family celebration and, in short, had a fantastic time in this very atmospheric restaurant. The staff are attentive, the menu is good and the specials appealing. Café Domenico very much fits in with the appeal of Leith i.e. the wide range of eating and drinking places that co-exist within a slice of real-life city... More
