We came here twice now and the service was excellent. We ordered the Olives, foccacia and lasagna followed by the ice cream sundaes. Everything was superb and we were amazed by the bill as we used a 2 for 1 tastecard offer.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district

helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
