If you're looking for gluten free, this restaurant does offer a good selection. I appreciated their honesty on arrival as they explained they cannot guarantee their is not a risk of cross contamination - most restaurants hide this fact- however scary it is initially I decided to try it and had No "after" effects. On the contrary chose a risotto... More

We were a group of friends travelling in Scotland and went here for a birthday dinner. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating to our needs. The food was absolutely delicious. Every one of us left completely satisfied. Could not recommend it enough for a scrumptious Italian meal.

My partner and I have just returned from a five night stay in Edinburgh and one of our 'go back to places' will be 'Made In Italy'. If you want to sit and chill with a Flat White or fill your belly with properly cooked pasta then this is the place to go. Takeaway food is available and the service... More

We selected this restaurant from the many options within the old town because it was close to our hotel and we were strapped for time but we could not fault either the friendly staff or the superb food ! The authentic Italian pizza was beautiful crisp and flavoursome ! My wife had the mushroom risotto from the specials board and... More

The menu holds several pasta dishes, pizzas and everything you expect from Italian food place. It's located in the heart from the Grassmarket which stands always busily paced and active, boiling during weekends. The waitresses were great and really attentive. Prices were affordable and desserts were big and lovely. The only but it's the relatively small size of the dishes,... More

We recently visited this restaurant while staying in Edinburgh. The standard of food was very average. Don't get me wrong it was tart, but there was nothing spectacular about it. Also the restaurant was not that busy and I felt as though the waitress was standing over us at all times.

Had prawn starters served in a small bowl with hot chilli sauce comprising 4 smallish prawns but mainly baby tomatoes. At £8 per portion. Tuna pizza came with a thin spread of Tuna. Service was friendly and prompt and the food was tasty but not great value.

We were hungry and came across this restaurant and so we gave it a try. Good el dante pasta and tasted Italian. Friendly staff and reasonable price! Quite busy at times and may need to reserve in advance. If you are looking for Italian food, you should try this one.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
