This retaurant has been about for years and it feels like you have been thrown back in time. The service from the "italian waiter" was loud over bearing and condescending, he was obviously acting a part, or perhaps I should say over acting. We were...More

I had passed Hispaniola in the building of the old Rutherfords Bar in Drummond Street. As we were going to a performance in the Assembly Roxy, just round the corner, it seemed like a good idea for a pre theatre bite. Was confused by the...More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed an authentic Italian meal here. Wine, bruschetta, smoked salmon pizza, and rigatoni with mushroom and spinach were perfetto! Wait staff were attentive and efficient. No room for dessert. Maybe next time!

We went two nights in a row-it was that good. The chicken with mushroom cream sauce and a veal in tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella were outstanding. We had gelato both nights for dessert.

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
