I came here with a group of 9 for my sisters graduation meal a few weeks ago. We chose the main menu rather than the graduation menu. What a lovely experience it was. Food was great, service was great and so were the cocktails. I...More

Nice restaurant with good selection of Italian foods. I ordered a stretched pizza... It was nice, but way too big (big enough for two adults). Kids loved their pizzas and mocktails! Slightly expensive for what you get, but that is to be expected in this...More

We were in Edinburgh for my birthday so came here for my meal. We are from Aberdeen so go to that one a lot. Food was fresh, well cooked and tasty. Place was very busy, atmosphere was great. Recommend any Amarones - always well fed!

Beware if you are vegetarian because V*means veal rennet and they do not tell you. Manager is quite appalling and blames head office because they write the menu. Asked for waiters to bring this to customer attention. No way will they do that.

Wonderful service and fabulous food. The scallops and bacon, and the Frutti de Mare were very good. I just saw the Calzone go by and it is huge and looks amazing. Son had Margarita Pizza, 20" pizza, and the crust and pizza was perfect.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
