This is a great Italian restaurant in Edinburgh. The food was really great - not incredible, but still really really good. Service was amazing with such attentive and lovely staff. I would definitely visit again while in Edinburgh and recommend it to friends!

This is an extremely busy place, packed with people and very loud. If you want to finish your dinner quickly you should go to this place - you may relate this to the quality you can expect. Not recommended.

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
