Such a great little find! The food was delicious - black ravioli with scallops and king prawns - and was a good portion size. The atmosphere and decor were great but the real appeal for me was the lovely service. From the minute we walked...More

A really lovely evening in an authentic Italian restaurant. Pasquale was so friendly, as was his son Gerardo and staff. The food was excellent! Thank you for making my husband's birthday fantastico!

The atmosphere of a real Italian family restaurant makes it an inviting place. A very friendly and fast service, but the food is only average. I had the caprese as a starter. The tomatoes were not ripe, the mozzarella an industrial quality, the arugula was...More

The food is overpriced... £9 for 2 peppercorn sauces to accompany steak when one would have easily done both of us. Portion size poor. I didn't enjoy the customer service and did not feel comfortable during my visit here. The decor is lovely.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
