We walked in, asked if we can pick up a sandwich which was already prepared and displayed in a glass show case with other pastries. No problem they said, we can even heat it up for you. 20 min. of begging them...was not enough. Waiters...More

Stopped in for a coffee decided to add some desserts to the mix after seeing the menu. The sweet calzones are a must try. We were impressed by those alone. Very small establishment. We were seated near the door so had people brushing by us...More

If you are looking for a real italian restaurant this is not the place. The food its normal and just the pizza can be ok. The spanish staff wasn't friendly and the table was sticky and dirty. I can't recomended this place for italian food.

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
