We ate at this restaurant last night, and I cannot fault the evening at all. The service was flawless, and the waiter was extremely attentive. Extensive menu with something for everyone - I had the agnolotti fico and can honestly say it was the best pasta dish I have ever had; and I worked in an Italian restaurant for five years, and papilio beats everything! You must go!

I regularly visit this restaurant on my trips to Edinburgh and I am never disappointed. The restaurant is small and intimate with a great atmosphere and exceptionally friendly and welcoming staff. The menu is extensive with quality food and the wine list offers quality wines at very good prices. Looking forward to my next visit. The staff feel like old friends now.

We went for dinner with my brother and his partner and were not disappointed in what we got.

Restaurant is small but well laid out and it was busy as you would expect on a Saturday night.

This is a family run restaurant but a nice menu and their staff were very attentive and friendly.

Can't fault the food or value for money. If you are looking for tasty relaxed dining and nothing too fancy I fully recommend coming here.
