By great good fortune we found this restaurant not too far from our hotel. It looks very unassuming from the outside but we liked the menu and from the moment we stepped inside we were hooked. It brought back memories of all those lovely, family...More

There's nothing hip about Ciao Roma; just down to earth, extremely good old-style Italian fayre. Superb pasta dishes and probably the best pizzas in Edinburgh. Friendly staff. Time-warp decor, but pleasingly makes one feel at home. Extremely good value for money

Nice place in a vintage and easy style. I suggest to try the Burrata and N'duja for who love the spicy. I will come back for sure.

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

Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
