A recent reviewer makes the very good point that this charming little restaurant has done well to survive years on the front line of the war zone that has been Edinburgh's t**m works. But it is not difficult to see why. Seating barely two dozen, it offers attentive but unintrusive service, excellent food and reasonable value (expect to pay £20-plus for a bottle of wine, £7 and up for a 250ml glass).

La Bruschetta has a touch of class and, though we sat quite a long time over two courses whose cost was exceeded by the drinks bill (we have previous for this) we were never under any pressure to move on and make room.

Very civilised. Recommended.

Service is impeccable in a lovely "white table cloth" setting. Very authentic food with lovely wine. We have eaten here many times, with friends and with children. Always lovely.

Like going back in time the service is very flowery but does make you feel special. The chef loves a sauce but the bottom line is the food is great and this wee place has done well to survive the onslaught. of tram works which have only recently cleared.

we saw this place on the way from Haymarket stations going to the Allburys. We had planned to eat elsewhere, but the menu was very attractive. Service did not disappoint, waiters very helpful, we did not need to top our wine up, this was always done for us. small things like this please.

maybe we were unlucky as they clearly were struggling to cope with service. Its a small restaurant and very busy, the food was both very good and average, the two staff charming.
There is no space to wait for your table if its not ready other than outside or to hover in the restaurant.
