This was a recommendation from a friend, and we were glad to have had it. The servers were warm, friendly, and helpful. The atmosphere was cosy and charming. The food was unbelievable! We had pasta....so good, and a fig and proscuitto special for starters.....delish, and pizza....amazing. If we were there longer than 2 nights, we would have gone back again. Can’t wait to return to Edinburgh and eat here!

I've been coming here for a wee while. I love watching folk trying to eat pizza with knife and fork. Dude, use yer hands.

We have eaten in Papilio's regularly since moving to this part of Edinburgh last year. We are always welcomed. On the last occasion we turned up on the off chance of a table, and great efforts were taken to find us a table in what was (as it often is) a very full restaurant. The menu is extensive and everything we have tried from it has always been delicious. The specials often also tempt you away from the menu. Service is always very good, both in terms of speed and friendliness.

It was a few years ago that I lived in Edinburgh and Bruntsfield was you young happy place to be, so when there was the opportunity to come back for the weekend it's where we headed, and well we landed too.
Staying at The Bruntsfield Hotel - on the pretty edge of Bruntsfield, with the park and great city views, and just a short step from the great bars and cafes we had plenty of choice, but I'm so glad we chose Papilio. It was quite excellent.
By a simple process of elimination we were greeted by name even though we'd never been before. It was a nice touch that characterises the place.
Friendly staff. Good food served quickly, but with no hurry. I was lucky not to have had to look at the bill, but I don't imagine it would have been painful.
Excellent coffee - how is it that just now and then someone gets coffee so right? These guys do.
Thank you and well done.
