“Nice Touches Awful Service.”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

This is a nice little cafe. There are some lovely authentic italian touches such as the collection of comic art and the confectionery. Having said that the service leaves a lot to be desired. The couple who run it are unfiendly in the extreme and seem to begrudge the presence of customers in their cafe. On my LAST visit my cappucino was too hot, an unforgiveable crime against coffee. Not very child friendly either.

“Absolute must go :)”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

Wow this place is amazing :) Been here several times on a Saturday afternoon! Beautiful Italian style lunches..really gives the feel that you're on holiday. Staff are extremely friendly and professional and build good relationships with their customers. Located in the lovely Stockbridge, this place couldn't get better! I recommend getting the mint milkshake! ;)

“Unfriendly service and overpriced soup”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

On first appearancs seems like a nice cafe in heart of Stockbridge. Staff unfriendly and barely mumbled anything at me. Soup - to takeaway - with no bread (despite menu stating bread) was £3.00! What I got was grey dishwater in a small paper cup. It was lukewarm, gritty and completely underseasoned. The menu proferred "pancetta and wine" zuppa. I couldn't discern either.
Not impressed.

“Good coffee, offhand service”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Nice quality coffee in a very small shop. Seating is limited both inside and out. The staff seem to think of it as an extension of their living room - if you are part of the select few you will get a smile and a few words, if not, you will be served while avoiding eye contact. Odd really but the transient staff in the chain coffee stores in Edinburgh are distinctly more pleasant.
