“A little bit of Italy in St Stephen St”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Real Italian coffee , real Italian owners and real Italian snacks, though I am very fond on the potato scone with pancetta- a real Italo- Scottish combo.

“One of the nicest sunny spots to sit for a coffee in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Go here a lot for an Italian style coffee. Also a big fan if the toasted flatbreads the inter piadine. One of the nicest sunny spots in Edinburgh in the afternoon and the owners are very nice (a bit surprised that some of the other reviews say different)

“Great little Italian cafe.”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

This is a lovely Italian cafe with simple but lovely food. The paninis are very tasty and are the genuine Italian ones, not the doughy ones you often get in the UK. The coffee is also excellent, can't think of a better cup anywhere in Edinburgh. I find the owners very friendly, they made a fuss of my dog and fed him some bread. Sitting in the sun watching the world pass by in Stockbridge, not much wrong with that is there?

“Best little cafe in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

I go here a lot. The reason is simple - great coffee and fantastic sandwiches and snacks. It's small - there are only a few tables, but any ex-pat Italian should feel right at home. The radio is Italian, as are the sweets, and all manner of delectable sandwiches. And some outdoor seating on St Stephen Street if you feel the need of a fag. A cigarette, that is.

“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.
