Had a fantastic meal wasn't to sure what to expect and was totally blown away the fillet steak was head and shoulders above any other I have tried. From starter to Dessert and wine a beautiful meal in a beautiful setting with incredibly attentive staff.

This small compact restaurant has about 20 covers and is a delight from its pure linen tablecloths to the charm and care of the waiters . The menu is not large but they have a great selection of specials. I had scallops and my partner Bruschetta followed by veal Milanese for me and tuna for my partner you have to... More

This small restaurant with friendly and efficient staff offers the best Italian food I have ever eaten. I have visited it off and on over a good few years and have never come away anything other than 100% satisfied by the food and the service. It is a little more expensive than the run of the mill Italian restaurants, but... More

Our party of 4 did not know what to expect as this was our first visit. It is small and felt a bit formal to start with. However this did not last long as the people looking after front of house made us welcome and set a relaxed and friendly tone throughout. The food was absolutely delicious as was the... More

The restaurant is really small, but tidy. White linen on every table. The menu is not huge, but interesting with inspired dishes. Not your bog standard Italian pasta place. The main courses are coming on its own unless you order, some veg or potato with it. I have ordered the saltimbocca with some rosemary potatoes and both were delicious. The... More

This little restaurant serves delicious authentic Italian food in a pleasant and calm atmosphere. The service is excellent and the menu has a wide selection of dishes including the best veal escallops I've ever tasted. Would definitely eat here again.

Love this place. Very authentic and proper Italian food. However, when the bill comes it always surprises me that it's a fair bit more than I'd expect it to. Won't stop me going but I will not spend a lot of money on drink. Please don't over price yourselves La Bruschetta!

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
