We were told on arrival there would be a 40min wait for our food, which we were fine with, since they told us in advance. The husband had red wine which he said was lovely and I enjoyed a cider. Fair but not massive drinks...More

We had a late lunch here on our last day in Edinburgh. Their gluten free menu was great and included Peroni gluten free beer. My husband's calzone was huge and I quite liked my gluten free pasta and beer. Service was a little slow in...More

If you are looking for a real italian restaurant this is not the place. The food its normal and just the pizza can be ok. The spanish staff wasn't friendly and the table was sticky and dirty. I can't recomended this place for italian food.

For a little cafe/restaurant, this place was very busy and we were lucky to get a seat! The staff were all very smiley and friendly and the food was of really good quality! We popped in for lunch and both had paninis and salad which...More

We were lucky to get a seat because it was so busy up until close and I can understand why. They have a great selection and the staff were really friendly. All reasonable prices, especially in this area. I would definitely come again!

On our citytrip to Edinburgh we've been here twice for a late breakfast and every time the service and the food, as well as the coffee, are good. When it's busy they'll tell you the waiting time can be longer than usual, but that's ok...More

Chose this restaurant as the food looked amazing, ordered bolognese sourdough pizza with a side of garlic bread to share. Beautiful fresh food, fabulous service and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend if you are in the Grassmarket

Very good Italian food; nice beer (Italian beer!) and wine selection, good service, nice outside patio. We ate here several times when we didn't have reservations elsewhere. Never had a bad meal.

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
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
